How to get Golden Cookies in Cookie Clicker?

Every bite is filled with ooey gooey gold!

Cookie Clicker is a game that is all about cookies. One of the best cookies out there is the Golden Cookie. Check out this guide to find out how to get your hands on this delicious cookie. Don't worry, Golden Cookies are still soft and moist.

The Golden Cookie is a special cookie that can randomly appear while playing. Once it appears, players will have 13 seconds to click on it before it disappears. Clicking on it will grant the player a random effect that boosts their cookie production in some way.

You can upgrade the frequency Golden Cookies appear as well as the duration they stay on the screen before disappearing. The Golden Cookie can also be replaced with a Red Wraith Cookie depending on which stage of the Grandmapocalypse they are on. Clicking on this cookie will cause a random negative effect. During the Angered stage of the Grandmapocalypse or if Skruuia is selected in the Pantheon, all naturally spawning Golden Cookies will be Red Wrath Cookies instead.

In the stats menu, the player can see how many Golden Cookies they have clicked on. If the player wants to see how many Golden Cookies they have missed, they can type Game.missedGoldenClicks into the console.
