Would you eat cookies that were randomly left on your doorstep?

I want to give my neighbors a cookie basket or tin for Christmas. I barely know them but i think it will help break the ice a bit. But i don't want to give it in person. I wanted to leave it one the doorstep with a note. Would you eat them? or think it was weird?

  • Personally, I woudnt eat anything like that unless it was hand delivered. Just stop by, ring the door bell, and say "Hello, my name is ___. I live ___. Just wanted to say hi, and welcome you to the neighborhood". Doing it in person means to much more.

  • Definitely, and that' a great idea! Just leave it with a hand written note (more personal) with your name and make sure you let then know you're the neighbor not some creeper, lol. I think that's a wonderful christmas idea.

  • I would eat them, but I really eat anything. Most people probably wouldn't.

  • I wouldn't eat them, for a lot of reasons (I'm pretty picky about the kinds of ingredients that go in my mouth)...

    I might accept them graciously at the door if you came by when you could see someone was here. If you're trying to break the ice, do it in person.

  • I don't know if I would if they were left anonomously. But, if there was a card that said something like Happy Holidays from your neighbor at 23 or something I think that would be very nice. (c:

  • I sure would. If you leave a note I wouldn't see that as any different than handing them over in person...

  • If someone gave them to me in person, then yes. Something left on a doorstep, I wouldn't trust since that sounds kind of terrorist, even if that isn't the intent.

  • i would not...especially if the were just left. maybe if you delivered them i would. How about sending the kids over with them?
