Gideon's Bakehouse named best chocolate-chip cookie in Florida

National foodie website Delish made a slideshow of the best chocolate-chip cookies in every state, and Orlando's very own Gideon's Bakehouse took the top spot for Florida.

If you've ever even seen one of these monsters, much less tackled eating one, you know Gideon's cookies are serious chippy business.

Not only is it a nice nod for the bakery, it feels great to finally read one of these "best food in every state" listicles and NOT have a Miami restaurant always win Florida.
