Famous Amos Takes Over New York City

The scents of bite-size cookies with hints of chocolate from Belgium, coconut from the Philippines, and hazelnuts from the Mediterranean, reflecting each of the three new cookie recipes, will waft (via black SUVs, bikes, and people on-foot) through the streets. Today from 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. ET, everywhere in lower Manhattan, south of Worth Street all the way to Battery Park and extending east to Seaport and west to the Westside Piers, will be rich with the scents where people can follow their nose towards the direction of the scent to try the cookies for themselves at the FAMOUS AMOS WONDERS FROM THE WORLD Experience. There, they will immediately be transported to the wonderful places where we source our fine ingredients, with three separate immersive experiences.

The FAMOUS AMOS WONDERS FROM THE WORLD Experience will be serving up the three new elevated takes on the iconic, bite-sized chocolate chip cookie, including Belgian Chocolate Chips, Philippine Coconut and White Chocolate Chips, and Mediterranean Hazelnut and Milk Chocolate Chips.

«What makes our new Famous Amos cookies special is that they’re able to transport you to another world of flavor. With this sensorial experience, we are bringing the internationally inspired flavors to life in a different and delicious way,» said Rachna Patel, Senior Director, Distinctive Brands at Ferrara.
