The holiday season is beginning to look a little sweeter with the arrival of Mariah Carey's cookie line in Austin.


The pop singer launched her own cookie line, Mariah's Cookies, with Virtual Dining Concepts to provide a sweet treat delivered straight to your home.

Mariah's Cookies are available in packs of six or 12, with the option of creating your own box with different flavors: chocolate chunk, triple chocolate chunk, lemon cooler, spiced oatmeal raisin, heath bar and two seasonal flavors—pumpkin and gingerbread.

You can purchase a pack of six for $11.99 or 12 for $21.99 on the website, or by using a third-party delivery app, such as Uber Eats, Doordash, Postmates, Grubhub and more.

The singer's partnership with Virtual Dining Concepts, owned by Robert Earl, founder and CEO of Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, introduces delivery-only style of foods around the country. Mariah's Cookies is offered in over 30 cities in the country, including Dallas and Houston.

And if playing "All I want for Christmas is you," while eating Mariah's Cookies isn't enough, tune into the pop star's Apple TV+ special, "Mariah Carey's Magical Christmas Special."
