Yes, Daniel , Freighofer's cookies recipie has changed.
The original cookie dough was less sweet, and they used dark/ or semisweet chips. Entemen's original choc-chip cookies with the dark choc chips are the most like the original cookies. For a while Freighofer sold both. They just sell the the new recipie now.

I've seen a steady increase in cycling trips along Madison Ave. after the road diet. I've been one of those riders, too. It's made summertime trips from my house to the Point on Madison that much faster than walking, and there's really no need to drive that short distance - thereby saving a spot for another patron. I've not only enjoyed the F out of the trip, but burned a few calories, too, which considering my diet, is much needed. I'm very very pleased with this effort and thank CDTA, CDPHP and CDTC for their efforts in making this happen. I'm resolving to make MORE trips in 2019!
