Watch a drone deliver Sweet Martha's cookies to a very special customer

When a famous Minnesota chef needs a cookie, he gets a cookie.

If you go to the Minnesota State Fair and don't get some Sweet Martha's cookies, did you even go to the fair?

It takes incredible willpower to walk past the stand, inhale the sweet smell of freshly baked cookies, and resist the temptation to buy – at the very least – a small cone.

And most people don't want to. Sweet Martha's is on many fairgoers' bucket list (literally). The rest of the year, you probably wouldn't indulge in a dozen or more cookies in one sitting, but during the fair it's a Minnesota tradition.

But what if you can't get to the fair, and you get a serious craving for those perfect little cookies?

Well apparently if you're a certain famous Minnesota chef, all you have to do is tweet at the cookie lady, and wait for a drone to come to the rescue.

Check it out:

The footage was shot by AirVuz, a Twin Cities-based drone video company. And people definitely noticed it fly by the first day.

We're pretty sure this is too good to be true, for regular fairgoers anyway. But drone delivery is a real thing these days, so the idea actually may not be too far-fetched.
