The Black Sheep is offering their own sweet take on a classic fried snack. The coffee and French pastry shop will be serving cookie fries with a side of homemade jam during Stampede. You might just trick your brain into thinking you’re about to eat actual fries because they look almost indistinguishable from the real thing.
