IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS…
Ben’s Cookies started as a stall in Oxford’s Covered Market in 1983. Founded by cookery writer and chocoholic Helge Rubenstein, she named it after her son Ben (that’s him in our logo, drawn by her good friend and renowned illustrator Quentin Blake).
This shop, with our simple freshly-baked cookie outlook, is still going strong today. So is our business, with new shops appearing in select locations in England and
around the world.
- THE FINEST INGREDIENTS…
We use chunks (not chips) of delicious Belgian chocolate, unsalted butter, wheat flour, cane sugar and fresh eggs from chickens who are treated well.
- BAKED ON THE DAY…
We make the cookie dough in our kitchen just outside Oxford. Then each store bakes it into satisfyingly chunky cookies all through the day.
- A COOKIE WITHOUT COMPROMISE
We believe that if we make a really good cookie, customers will keep coming back. So every day, we do the best we can to make something that people really love.
