Not all food holidays are worth noting on your calendar and celebrating with a snack. But National Cookie Day, which falls on December 4, is. Soft or crispy, chewy or crumbly — whatever your preferred style is, a day to honor and enjoy cookies is definitely something to milk for all its worth.

Several chains — some specializing in cookies, others generally serving them as a companion to other foods — are making that easier with deals, discounts and celebratory events. Here are a few you may want to grab:

Subway: In celebration of National Cookie Day, Subway will combine its fresh-baked cookies with its footlong subs and debut the world’s first footlong cookie — “one foot of Subway cookie goodness, piled high with decadent toppings ranging from indulgent and sweet, to savory and totally unexpected” — on December 4. Four limited-edition footlong flavors will be available exclusively at only one location, a cookie-only pop-up in Calle Ocho in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, which will be called Cookieway. Open from from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on December 4, Cookieway, from which the proceeds will benefit the Subway Cares Foundation, will serve a footlong cookie menu that includes: The Subway Cookie Club (Double Chocolate cookie base, with vanilla frosting, topped with Chocolate Chip, White Chocolate Macadamia and Raspberry Cheesecake cookie chunks, rainbow sprinkles and chocolate and raspberry sauce), The MexiCali (a vanilla sugar cookie base in dulce de leche, topped with mole and corn nuts, drizzled with white chocolate sauce, and finished with ground coffee, Tajin and espresso chips), The Monster (Double Chocolate cookie base with peanut butter, peanut butter cups, Reese's pieces, butterscotch morsels and pretzels, finished with chocolate and white chocolate sauces) and The Great Pickle (a sweet and savory cookie featuring layers of peanut butter and marshmallow creme on a vanilla sugar cookie base, topped with potato chips, bacon crumbles and dill pickles).

For those who can’t make it to the pop-up, Subway is also offering six- and 12-pack Cookie Bundles at Subway restaurants across the country and a special cookie deal: You can take $2 off a footlong sub when adding a cookie to orders placed on the Subway app or Subway.com. The offer is available exclusively to those with a Subway account who have opted into email at least 72 hours prior.
