Davidovich Fills the “Black & White Cookie Void” Left By Glaser’s Bakery’s Closing

July 30, 2018 NYC– After 116 years of serving NYC and the surrounding area with some of the most iconic Black & White Cookies in the world, Glaser’s Bakery closed for good last week.

This closure left a gaping void for the generations of New Yorkers whose guilty pleasures included these equally-balanced, fondant covered gems.   For some it meant the age-old question of, “Which is superior- the chocolate or vanilla?” might never be answered.  For others it was a more telling sign of the death of one of the many things that was a signature NYC product for ages.

The Famous Davidovich Black & White Cookies- made in the tradition of the greats, like Glaser’s Bakery

Now, thanks to the world famous Davidovich Bakery New Yorkers need suffer no more.   Davidovich, in the tradition of Glaser’s and other fine Artisan bakeries, has continued to make its famous, Black & White Cookies, by hand, using only the finest ingredients.

While Glaser’s may be gone, their cookies will live on fondly in our hearts.  Be sure to stop by any Davidovich Bakery location, or reseller today, and ask for your Davidovich Black & White Cookie.
