I would like to support the fight to save the Berger cookie ( "Don't take away my Berger cookies Nov. 29)! Why is the government trying to invade every aspect of our lives? Yes, people should eat a more healthy diet, but when were cookies ever healthy in the first place? Berger cookies are not responsible for the obesity problems or the cardiovascular problems in the country. People eating too much and not moving are the issues here. The government needs to allow good, hard-working people like the family that makes Berger cookies to earn an honest living!

There's nothing different about your Berger cookie. It's just the nutritional label that's changed. A sharp-eyed shopper wrote in to tell us that he had tried the Berger cookie that has 0 grams of trans fat, and that it tasted just as good as the 1-gram fudge-topped classic that's been produced and enjoyed in Baltimore for generations. We went out and bought a pack of trans-fat-free Berger and we also couldn't see or taste anything different about the new Berger cookie.  That's because there is no difference.

Oh Maryland, how we love thee.  The Ravens, the Orioles, mountains of crabs. ADG ad agency has created a video Valentine to the Free State.  Shot in slow motion, the video features a cascade of Berger Cookies and a veritable river of Old Bay.  And, in honor of the agency's Columbia headquarters, there's a nod to some distinctly Howard County pleasures, such as the county library system.  We love their take on Maryland's rapidly...

Where are the Berger Cookies? They're not at Eddie's of Roland Park, where the fudge-topped icons have been missing for at least a week and a half. And they're not even at the Berger bakery stall at Lexington Market. A message on Berger's website and outgoing voicemail says the company is temporarily closed because of an illness in the family. The last shipment received at Eddie's Market of Charles Village, according to owner Jerry Gordon, was on Jan. 31, the Thursday before the Super Bowl.

The makers of Baltimore's famous Berger Cookies were closer Monday to reopening their Cherry Hill bakery, a spokesman said. The Baltimore City Health Department closed the bakery Jan. 31 for operating without a city-issued food service license. The Health Department has no concerns about food safety after inspecting the facility earlier this month, said spokeswoman Tiffany Thomas Smith. Meanwhile, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has an ongoing, “routine” investigation into the bakery after a scheduled inspection in January, said George A. Strait, an agency spokesman, on Monday.

A delivery truck stocked with Berger cookies rolled out of the Cherry Hill bakery Monday morning for the first time in more than a month. The well-known sweets are finally back in stores after Berger's closure by the Baltimore City Health Department Jan. 31; the bakery was closed for operating without a city-issued food-service license. The Health Department approved the bakery's license Wednesday, and the bakery started to gear up for production the next day. On Monday, workers in hairnets and aprons frosted cookies, packed the treats and sent them off. Corey DeBaufre, whose family has been making the cookies since 1969, said the bakery would keep its regular production schedule for the time being.

Remember the municipal panic that set in when flooding from Hurricane Irene put a stall in the delivery of Berger Cookies. It just goes to show you, you can never be too prepared. Berger Cookies are available for ordering online, packed in two-pound decorative tins for $20.99. Consider this a slam-dunk Christmas gift. Although, frankly, I'm not so sure about those decorative tins.

I think the editors of The Sun have finally suffered a mental breakdown. Please explain to me why Berger Cookies and their drippy containers ("After flood, Berger Cookies back in boxes, on shelves," Sept. 16) would be on the front page while the article regarding Dakota Meyer saving the lives of 36 fellow soldiers ("Medal of Honor recipient braved 'kill zone' to save pals") is relegated to Page 6? Please, I need to know why. Don't tell me it's because Berger is a Baltimore company.

If the Food and Drug Administration goes ahead with its proposal to eliminate trans fats from processed food, it could create a sticky situation for Baltimore-area sweets makers, including the company that produces famed Berger cookies. The FDA will announce a final decision on banning trans fats from restaurants and packaged products on Jan. 7, but manufacturers are already preparing themselves. The baker of the Berger cookies has tasted the future and found it lacking.

As a Messenger columnist, this time of year can be rough to write about. The post-New Years lull, as many of us are recovering from our Christmas and New Year's Eve festivities, can, traditionally, leave a gap in the calendar. But instead of taking some down time, I think we should keep the ball rolling in 2014. After all, I'm sure there's a calendar somewhere that will be misinterpreted to say that 2014 will be the final year of life on Earth as we know it. (Whatever happened to that Mayan calendar 2012 prediction anyway?

Regarding your report "FDA trans-fat ban threatens Berger cookies" (Nov. 22), dietitian Angela Ginn said it best: "It may be tantalizing to our taste buds, but once it gets into our arteries it turns to sludge. " Bakery owner Charles DeBaufre Jr. has made a ton of money selling Berger cookies. He should have been ahead of the game and gotten rid of the trans-fat in his product. I stopped buying anything with trans-fats in it 10 years ago - including his cookies - and I am sure there are many others like me.

My fiance Keith and I keep discussing wedding favors and what we think may be a nice one to give at our own wedding. We have been to multiple weddings this year, and a popular wedding favor at many of them were beer koozies. I think it's a nice favor to give guests because it really does come in handy. You can also get creative with these by incorporating your wedding colors or theme. Couples usually include their names, the date and then some sort of cute saying. A few I have seen are "Eat, drink, and be married" and "To have and to hold, and to keep your beer cold.

The Baltimore City Health Department shut down Berger Cookies after receiving an anonymous complaint about the iconic Baltimore-based bakery and subsequently learning it was operating without a license. And now the city is not sure if the bakery ever had a license at all. “I can't speculate on how long they've been without a license,” said health department spokeswoman Tiffany Thomas Smith, “but would say that we're checking with state and FDA inspectors to confirm their last inspection dates.” However, state officials told The Baltimore Sun that they do not have jurisdiction over city facilities.
