“We know the cookies are ever in our flavor,
We believe in magic, adventures, and
Love is Love is Love.
We know the answer to everything is 42.
And, if not then it’s chocolate.
We believe you are you, that is truer than true,
And there’s no one alive who is you-er than you!
We mix everything with love and make the world taste good.
Join us in our quest to make the world a little sweeter one geek treat at a time.
May the fork be with you, live long and eat cake.”
