For Apple's mania, you may love this iCookie, it's an 'iPhone cookie' from Green Gables in Tokushima prefecture, Japan.

Green Gables in Tokushima prefecture pioneered the tasty treat in 2008 as a special birthday gift for customer's husband, said Kumiko Kudo, the 44 year-old owner. The biscuit gained nationwide fame after a photo of it made the rounds via Twitter posted by economic writer Kazuyo Katsuma and pop singer Komi Hirose. Since then Kudo has sold hundreds of the cookies.

The hand-made iCookie doesn't come cheap at 2,730 yen, and it's only available by order and inside Japan, where the waiting time to snap up one of the biscuits has been as long as two months.
