Z100 morning show raves about Loopie Doops
On Thursday, Dec. 1, Elvis Duran and the Morning show, which plays locally on Z100 and KC101 among other station across the country, discussed Loopie Doops cookies -- treats that originated in New Canaan.
"We gotta talk about these cookies," show host Elvis Duran said, right before they signed off the air.
"They're amazing," cohost Carolina Bermudez said.
The morning show is well-known for enjoying food and often discusses different delicacies on the air. Previous favorite snacks included the McRib, White Castle, cupcakes and truffles. On Thursday morning, the animated crew was getting a sugar fix from Loopie Doops.
New Canaan resident Lisa Najarian bakes and sells Loopie Doops cookies, which quickly gained popularity in town and are now growing beyond Fairfield County and Connecticut.
Najarian debuted her cookies at the 2010 Sidewalk Sale in New Canaan, and they are for sale at Fish Tales, Chicken Joe's, Joe's Pizza and Mobil on South Ave. The Filling Station put 90 pounds of her cookies in their Milkshake of the Month in September.
"I've now got these addicts who love these cookies," she told the New Canaan News in July. "I cannot wait to get out there and sell nationwide and have a distributor buy me up."

Last year, Najarian started making cookies for her daughter to take on New Canaan High School volleyball road trips. She first created the "Triple Threat," a half-pound cookie with chocolate, white chocolate and peanut butter chips.
Besides Triple Threat, she sells "Raisin the Bar" (oatmeal raisin chocolate chunk) and "Nuts for Berry White" (white chocolate macadamia nut) under the Loopie Doops name. Half-pound cookies are $4 each and quarter-pound Lil' Loopies in batches of 12 or more are $1.50. They can be found online at loopiedoopscookies.com. Najarian is on Facebook and Twitter at Loopiescookies.
