Cookie Dessert at Club Soda in Fort Wayne, Indiana

Club Soda

Cookies for dessert, yes, please! At Club Soda, make sure you save room for the oatmeal raisin cookie sandwich. Although oatmeal raisin is not my go-to cookie, this dessert is amazing. Two cookies sandwiching cream cheese filling, and all covered in delectable chocolate sauce. And, of course, don't forget to order it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.

Now, these cookie destinations are not on the honorable mentions because they're less than any prior cookies mentioned, but because I have not had a chance to properly try these cookies. They're still all worthy of National Cookie Day though!
