Byron Bay Cookies off to the Oscars

BYRON Bay Cookies are headed to the red carpets of Los Angeles.

For the second time Byron Bay Cookies had been chosen to be included in the infamous Oscar Gift Bags at the 86th Academy Awards.

A position in the gift bag is reserved for some of the world's finest luxury brands from cosmetics through to extravagant holidays - and Byron Bay Cookies!

Byron Bay Cookie Company's marketing manager, Emilie Emond, said they were overjoyed by the news.

"It's great news, especially after the year we had last year," Ms Emond said.

The company made headlines last year when it was placed in receivership and was then sold to the Rinoldi Group, but has gone from strength to strength since then.

"We've gone through a difficult time, but it's all behind us, we've turned a new page and now it's to infinity and beyond!

"We know that we've been back for a while, but to get that recognition - and on an international level - is such a good thing."

Thinking about the A-List celebrities chomping down on their cookies post-Academy Awards (or having a sneaky nibble during the ceremony) was a thought that made the Byron Bay team smile, Ms Emond said.

"That's always exciting when we think about that!" she said.

On March 2, celebrities will be gifted with the exclusive Oscars gift bags, which will include one of Byron Bay Cookies' most loved flavours Gluten Free White Choc Chunk and Macadamia Nut in a beautifully packaged 150gm pouch of bite sized cookies - a perfect, post red carpet sweet treat.

"It's a special little treat for them to take home," Ms Emond said.

Byron Bay Cookies, one of Australia's favourite gourmet cookies appear to now be the favourite of many A-List celebrities including Oprah.

Oprah famously included a selection of Byron Bay Cookies in her goody bags on her Australian Tour in 2010.
