Is there anything better than free cookies and ice cream sandwiches?

The new Great American Cookies/Marble Slab Creamery at 6323 Grand Hickory Drive, Suite 100-E in Braselton, will hold its grand opening celebration from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday.

And, yes, that means free ice cream sandwiches for the first 100 customers and 20 free cookie cakes at the top of each hour.

A ribbon cutting ceremony with music by a DJ will take place at 4 p.m. Officials said the festivities will also include a costume party for children and a cookie cake decorating station.

Great American Cookies is known for its assortment of different flavored fresh-baked gourmet cookies, brownies, cookie cakes and Double Doozies cookie and icing sandwich. Meanwhile, Marble Slab Creamery is is known for its ice cream which is made from scratch in the store, as well as its assortment of milkshakes and handmade ice cream cakes.
