    My first taste of ms. Fields was when they used to sell them in the mall. As a kid my grandma would take us on the weekends we would visit her. When would get the cookies as soon as as they came out of the oven. The chocolate chips were so gooey and delicious. We would share a glass of milk and eat out cookie. I loved that time with grandma. Her and I we so close and we stayed close.

    The first time I had a Mrs. Field’s cookie was when I was walking through the outdoor mall near where I grew up. I was with my now husband then boyfriend. He and I were just walking after having had dinner at a local place. He liked chocolate chip and I like the White Chocolate chip macadamia nut cookie. We both still love them only don’t have them as much.


    My first taste of Mrs. Field’s delicious cookies was when I was 12 years old and it was a birthday gift from my grandma. She didn’t live nearby so she mailed me the package and I was so excited when I got it. The best cookie I have ever eaten. Here it is 30 years later and almost my birthday again (August 17th) and I love them as much now as I did back then. I have been eating a Mrs. Field’s cookie each birthday ever since, such sweet memories 🙂

    My mom first took me to Mrs Fields after school one day. I had won a spelling bee and wanted to celebrate, so she first suggested ice cream, until we smelled something. It was a deliciously intoxicating smell–the smell of freshly baked cookies. We followed our noses to Mrs Fields and were in love at first bite! We ordered some fresh cookies and enjoyed each delectable bite. Every year after that, my mom would take me to celebrate victories–small or large–at Mrs Fields, and I now have the pleasure of doing the same with my own children!

    My first taste of Mrs Field’s cookies was through the Mrs Field’s cookbook. I made them for my family. The best chocolate chip recipe I ever had. Then we finally got a Mrs Field’s koisk at the mall and I had my first Mrs Field’s cookie. Yummy. Whenever I go to the mall I always get a cookie.

    My grandmother was the first one to introduce me to Mrs Field’s cookies. For Christmas, she bought them as one of the presents she gave to all of us grandchildren. Every Christmas since, we always look forward to Grammy giving us Mrs Field’s! There’s no better Christmas present out there 🙂

    My first taste was when I worked in a bank and a customer brought us in a sampler box in appreciation.


    I remember my grandmother used to have them at her condo in Westlake. When I was a child/teenager I always looked forward to visiting her (which was not often enough!) because that is the only place I had them. She passed away in 2003. Thinking of Mrs. Fields cookies brings back fond memories of her!

    First tasted them when our mall was built ages ago when I was much younger, and until just recently they are no longer in that mall (very sad 🙁 ), used to get them every time we went there.

    I tried them first when they first came out at Shopper’s Drug Mart. Heard so much about them, and was thrilled to try them for the first time. I still continue to buy them and love that they are individually wrapped for the utmost freshness! 😛

    Wow, you’re taking me back to when I was in my mid-twenties ( let’s just say a “few” years ago, (wink, wink)). My girlfriends and I wanted some sweets, so one suggested Mrs. Fields. Everyone looked at me with shock and horror when I mentioned I’d never heard of that bakery.

    There was just so much to choose from, but I went with the rest of them and got the Milk Chocolate Macadamian Nut cookies. I was instantaneous hooked. It was soooooooooooo good. I couldn’t believe that I had never heard of Mrs. Fields, let alone tasted them. But, I’ve been a fan for years now.

    Now that the Milk Chocolate Macadamian Nut cookies are gone I’ve fallen in live with the Double Fudge Chocolate Brownies.

    My first memory of Mrs. Field’s cookies came at Cottonwood Mall in Holladay, Utah, back to school clothes shopping with my mom. Warm Milk Chocolate Chocolate Chip and cold milk and my mom, really doesn’t get better than that!

    I first tried them when I lived in Manhattan many, many years ago, right from their own shop on the Upper West Side. They were warm and soft, with melty, gooey chocolate inside. Delicious and addictive!

    I got my first taste of heavenly cookie at Fiesta Mall in Mesa Arizona as a young teenager. I remember getting chocolate chip and I remember thinking “Oh wow, I should have bought two!”. It was melty chewy ooey gooey and my tastebuds thanked me. It was not the last time! LOL! Thank you Mrs.Fields!!

    My Mrs. Field’s cookies was as a young adult in college. I would go to the mall and dream of buying things. I was so poor that really, I could not buy anything, however, I always stopped at Mrs. Field’s and bought one cookie…because I could afford that. A decadent treat that I could afford!

    MY first time having Mrs Fields cookies was 15 years ago while walking through the mall years ago when I was a teenager. There isn’t one in the mall where I live now but I do buy the boxes that have them individually wrapped. These are my favorite!

    Well my first taste of Mrs. Fields Cookies was when I was about 7 years old. Maybe even 8. My dad came home from work and came home with these cookies. I thought it was just going to another ordinary genetic cookie. Nope! I remember the cookie being so delicious. It was rich, smooth and creamy. The cookie was a chocolate cookie covered half in white frosting. It was by far the best cookie I had ever tasted. I know the cookie is no longer with Mrs. Fields, which is a bummer. However their other products are awesome just as well. I thank my dad for bringing home my first taste of Mrs. Fields cookies!!

    My first Mrs. Fields cookie was an oatmeal raisin walnut cookie. I don’t remember exactly when this was, but it was from a box we had bought at the store. It was soft and moist and had just the right amount of sweetness.

    Wow – I was with my mom and sister and we saw this line at South Coast Plaza for Chocolate Chip cookies. My mom was a very good cook and my sister and I were learning from her. I remember my older sister going “what, someone selling chocolate chip cookies, we make really good ones mom, how can they make them as good as yours?” I was younger and I agreed, she made the best, warm out of the oven. Then after waiting in line and we only got two so my sister and I could try them. We really had a limited budget, some would say we were poor, but WOW were those cookies worth the price. They were AWESOME!!!! We even said to my mom, wow are they great. From then on, it was our treat going to the mall. The best part was you gave free taste too!! The mall took on a whole new meaning to us. Thank you.

    My parents took me to the mall for Mrs. Fields cookies every Friday night as a child. Money was tight, but this weekly tradition was a real treat for us! Although I honestly don’t remember my very first Mrs. Fields experience, I do remember always knowing they were my favorite!

    Mrs. Fields cookies will always remind me of my mother. No matter how rough of a life we had back then, she always did her best to keep me and my sister happy. My mom introduced me to Mrs. Fields at South Coast Plaza when I was 4 and would buy me a white chocolate macadamia cookie on nearly every visit. 27 years later, it’s still my favorite cookie.

    My first taste was through a good friend that had brought some over to a gathering. In fact, I think It was also the first time I heard of Mrs Fields cookies and It sure wasn’t the last! I really enjoyed the cookies and have been hooked onto them ever since. I cannot pass a Mrs Fields location without getting a cookie or four.

    The first time I had Mrs. Fields was when I was in middle school about 13 years ago. It was around Christmas time and the boy I liked asked someone else to the dance. I was really upset so my mom took to me to the mall for a little shopping and on our way out we saw Mrs. Fields. Since cookies are my favorite treat, my mom bought me a frosted chocolate chip cookie. It was the first time I ever had a frosted chocolate chip cookie and I was hooked. It wasn’t such a bad day after all.

    I remember as a kid that Mrs. Fields cookies were a staple in our house because my parents loved them, but I never really knew where they came from. When I was about eight years old, I was shopping with my mom at the local mom and she asked me if I wanted to take a break for some cookies. We walked down the food court hallway and immediately I smelled the sweetness and goodness of Mrs. Fields cookies. We walked over to the store and my eyes lit up looking at all the delicious flavors. I chose chocolate chip and my mom got oatmeal raisin. As we sat down and enjoyed the cookies I couldn’t stop smiling, they were so good. Soon it became a tradition for my mom and I to always get Mrs. Fields cookies when we were out shopping and there was never a time I don’t think we ever had some of these cookies in the house because the whole family loves them.

    My first Mrs. Fields was on the evening of my first date in 8th grade. I took my crush to a movie and we stopped by Mrs. Fields for a cookie and soda. We dated all through high school, and I actually asked her to our senior prom with a large Mrs. Fields cookie cake! Your cookies are both tasty and romantic 🙂

    The first time I had mrs fields was in high school with my best friend. The fun thing to do on the weekend was go to the mall and we made it our thing to get a bag of nibblers to share everytime. Classic chocolate chip was the first one I had ever tried and I was hooked for life.

    My first taste of Mrs. Field’s cookies was in Roosevelt Fields Mall in New York. They were so delicious that every time I went there to shop, I have to stop for the cookies. When my son was born, every single one of his birthday, I had ordered the huge Mrs. Field’s cookie and a few dozens of the small M&M ones for goodie bags. Now my son is away in college, I continue to send him these delicious cookies for him to feel that he is home away home.

    My first experience was over 24 years ago. I was dating. A guy whose last name was Fields and we just happened to be at the mall, when I saw your store. Having grown up in Hawaii, I’ve never seen one on Kauaai. Needles to say I jokingly told him, hey I’d like to try some of your family’s cookies! One bite of that mini chocolate chip cookie and I was sold! Have been enjoying it ever since! So delicious!!!

    I was a lunchbox kid. Apple slices, ziploc bags, thermos, the whole deal. One day in fifth grade, I begged my mom to let me get school lunch. I was probably excited for the school’s chicken sandwiches, but I was even MORE excited when that was the day our school cafeteria started serving Mrs. Fields chocolate chip cookies once a week! I was SO glad my mom let me buy lunch that day…

    I had my first Mrs. Fields cookie at the Fashion Place Mall in Murray, UT when I was with my family shopping. I remember it was two stores over from the place where we would buy school clothes. A tiny little shop. We had to wait in line it seemed like forever as a kid. I remember eyeing all of the large cookies in the display case. I couldn’t decide what flavor I wanted. Should I get chocolate chip or the one with white chocolate which I loved? If I chose the wrong one it would be a disaster. I picked the chocolate chip. Eating it from the wrapper was heavenly. I couldn’t wait to go back the next time we went to the mall to try the other flavor. Love these cookies!

    The cake cookies are my youngest sisters favorite treat! Utterly delectable within’ two days a full sized cake cookie is devoured! She delights in the designs, as much icing on it as possible. I have always had wonderful experiences at the stores that was located in Fair Oaks Mall, VA the reps made it so much fun personalizing each year. I’m not close to home anymore but she still waits every year for the MrsFields cake to arrive wishing her a very happy bday. Still haven’t managed to get her to share more than a bite in over the 18 years of our tradition.

    My first experience was in the 1980’s .. I followed my nose to the wonderful aromas coming from this little shop in the mall.
    Wow! I love my choc chip cookies with nuts and this one had pecans omg! The texture was crisp on the outside and wonderfully soft and chewy in the inside . My taste buds were in delerium as the dark chocolate chips melted on my tongue and the flavor was indescribable .. These simply are the best cookies on the market !! I only wish the shipping wasnt so much to Hawaii .. no shops on Maui boo hoo !! will you ever do the frozen ones again for baking at home .. No longer see those in the markets either .. thank you Mrs Fields for a fabulous product !!

    When I first moved to the US from South Korea (I was born and raised there), my friend took me to the Metrocenter Mall and got me hooked on Mrs. Fields White Chocolate Macadamia nut cookies. You know…those ginormous ones that are as big as your face? Man, I am salivating just thinking about it. I could sure use a freshly baked goodie right about now. 🙂
