St. Joesph, MO. (KQ2)- In today's social media world, Instagram is one of the many places we go to to let people know what's going on and what we want. But who would have thought that one simple post about a chocolate chip cookie would mean the world to both a Kansas City Chiefs player and a local St. Joseph business.

"In early July, Chiefs Defensive Lineman Chris Jones twitted out about Chiefs Training Camp coming to St. Joe and how he would really enjoy it if there were some fresh chocolate chip cookies available," said Country Cookie Operations Manager Heather Mitchell.

A loyal Country Cookie customer automatically tagged the one and only famous St. Joseph's bakery to the post. It just took off from there.

"We assured Chris we would have cookies available to him. Mosaic Life Care had invited us out and we presented to Chris his jersey cookies as well as his favorite chocolate chip cookies," Mitchell said.

KQ2 was there Monday afternoon when Mitchell made the special delivery to Jones. The response and smile was just priceless.

"For them to reach out, I'm very appreciative of it and their cookies are great. Country Cookie has some good cookies. I'm trying to get the chocolate chip out of my teeth right now. I feel good," Jones said.

Thanks to Jones, the demand for country cookie's chocolate chip hasn't slowed down.

"It's fun having a big name tweeting about your cookie, instagraming your cookies and really just being opened about it," Mitchell said. said.

For both Jones and Mitchell, they're hoping it's just the beginning of a very sweet relationship.

"If you would like it, I will take cookies every week of the season. I do not mind," Jones said.

"I would tell Chris if he wants cookies every week at Arrowhead, he better earn them so we want touchdowns, sacks and tackles," Mitchell said. said.

This is not the first time Country Cookie has delivered to a Chiefs Player. Former Center, Zack Fulton's favorite from the shop is peanut butter.

By the way, the Chiefs' first pre-season game is Thursday against Houston. You can catch the game on KQ2.
