Cookie Time celebrates first year in Queenstown


Queenstown’s Cookie Time turns one today – and to celebrate, the store hopes to have its busiest day yet. 

Cookie Time Queenstown manager Verity Richard says birthday celebrations have been “pretty out of control”, with people making the most of a $1 freshly-baked cookie special. 

“It’s a full-on 12-hour birthday celebration from 9am to 9pm,” she says. 

Since it opened its doors last year, the first Cookie Time store in New Zealand has sold 850,000 cookies in the resort and poured thousands of litres of milk through its ‘beer’ tap.
