"The Cookie BonBite is one of our yummiest examples of creativity to come out of the innovation kitchen", Jill Thomas, vice president of global marketing for Cinnabon, said in a press release. According to the San Jose Mercury News, Mrs. Fields was actually founded on December 4th, exactly 40 years ago, in Palo Alto.

Read on to find out where to find deals on National Cookie Day and beyond.

Or you might want to go to your local Whole Foods Market, where all of the cookies at their "cookie bar" are 50 percent off starting right now until National Cookie Day is over. Try the buttery rugelach or chocolate sandwich cookies. It will only be available for a limited time, so enjoy this scrumptious creation while you can.

One will cost you 2.99 and a half dozen is 9.99. A thick cookie like this deserves to only be served gooey.

"Sharing our signature, warm DoubleTree Cookies during the holidays is our way of extending the caring, welcoming spirit and cheer that we champion all year".

Until Dec. 8, you can get a bag for free with coupons at supermarkets like Shop'n Save and Cub Foods. And they'll be available through December 31, and if they're a success, the company told TODAY Food, they may move onto menus permanently. Hanukkah kicks off in just over a week, and Christmas is three weeks from today, but you don't have to wait that long to begin the celebration, because Monday, December 4th is National Cookie Day.

Everything at the Whole Foods cookie bar (that is, products of its in-store bakeries) is 50% off until the end of the day on Monday.

Participating Great American Cookies stores will hand out free cookies to customers with no purchase necessary.
