This is a helper, and it is here to help you at whichever degree you want, if you only need some help shortening long numbers, it does that. If you need to be accompanied by hand to pick the best buildings to buy, it does that, but everything is an option.
Current version Edit
You can see the current version, and a full history of all versions and what they changed by consulting the releases page.
What it does Edit
At its core, Cookie Monster computes an index on both buildings and upgrades:
- Base Cost per Income (BCI): Indicates how much a building is worth by comparing how much it costs to how much income gained
Cookie Monster also indicates the time left before being able to buy an upgrade or building, and takes it into consideration. It will take everything in consideration, meaning if buying a building also unlocks an achievement which boosts your income, which unlocks an achievement, it will know and highlight that building's value.
This index is computed for buildings and upgrades. If the relevant option is enabled, it will color-code each of them based on their value:
- Light Blue: (upgrades) This item has a better BCI than any building
- Green: This item has the best BCI
- Yellow: This item is not the best, but it is closer to best than it is to worst
- Orange: This item is not the worst, but it is closer to worst than it is to best
- Red: This item has the worst BCI
- Purple: (upgrades) This item has a worse BCI than any building
- Gray: (upgrades) This item has not been calculated and/or cannot be calculated due to no definitive worth.
Note: For this index, lower is better, meaning a building with a BCI of 1 is more interesting than one with a BCI of 3.
What it doesn't do Edit
Most likely you'll find items in gray like Golden Cookie upgrades, clicking upgrades – everything that doesn't earn you a direct bonus to your income will display as gray. This means the following upgrades are not taken into account by Cookie Monster:
- Plastic mouse
- Iron mouse
- Titanium mouse
- Adamantium mouse
- Unobtainium mouse
- Lucky day
- Get lucky
- Elder Pledge
- Sacrificial rolling pins
Do note though that, although these upgrades have no direct value, if buying them earns you an achievement of some sort which in return gives you milk and income, Cookie Monster will display that value.

If you'd rather use the addon as a script via per example Greasemonkey or Tampermonkey, you can use the following script, which will automatically load Cookie Monster every time the original game loads. You may need to specify
