|In-Game Description||A nice grandma to bake more cookies.|
|Introduction||Cookie Clicker Classic|
The Grandma is the main antagonist of Cookie Clicker Classic and the 1.0 Update and the second cheapest building you can purchase with an initial cost of 100 cookies. She produces cookies at a base rate of 0.5 cookies per second.
Unlike the building before it and after it, Grandmas progress with later buildings very well with the grandma type upgrades, which each double its efficiency but require 15 of a superior building to purchase, and sometimes can be quite expensive, up to 399,999,999,900 cookies for Antigrandmas. Getting all upgrades, but not having enough grandmas and portals to increase the base cps further will give grandmas a base cps of 13107.2, and if you have a lot of grandmas and/or portals, that number increases further.
Once you get all the grandma types up to Grandma's Grandmas (requiring 15 time machines and costing 12,345,678,900 cookies), you unlock the Bingo Center/Research Facility, which (as of 1.036) is currently the only upgrade to make a building four times as efficient, although its price of 100,000,000,000 cookies means it'll be a while until it's worth the cost. This will unlock a new upgrade after 30 minutes (research only starting once the last item researched is purchased), including five multiplier upgrades (Specialized Chocolate Chips for +1% and costing 10,000,000,000 cookies, Designer Cocoa Beans for +2% and costing 20,000,000,000 cookies, Underworld Ovens for +3% and costing 80,000,000,000 cookies, Exotic Nuts for +4% and costing 320,000,000,000 cookies, and Arcane Sugar for +5% and costing 1,280,000,000,000 cookies), one upgrade to double Grandma efficiency (Ritual Rolling Pins for 40,000,000,000 cookies), and three upgrades to greatly increase Grandma output but start the Grandmapocalypse (One Mind for 160,000,000,000 cookies and Communal Brainsweep for 640,000,000,000 cookies, which each give each grandma +1 BASE CpS per 50 grandmas, and Elder Pact for 2,560,000,000,000 cookies which gives each grandma +1 BASE CpS per 20 portals. After all the doubling upgrades those figures are a LOT higher than that.)
Each fully upgraded grandma produces cookies according to the following formula:
- (0.8+2*(grandma count/50)+(portal count/20))*2^15
- 26214.4+grandma*655.36+portal count*1638.4
- With 100 Grandmas and 100 Portals, each Grandma would be baking 321,126.4 cookies per second, for a total of 32,112,640 cookies per second.
- With 200 Grandmas and 100 Portals, each Grandma would be baking 452,198.4 cookies per second, for a total of 90,439,680 cookies per second.

Since the 1.032 update, grandmas now have varying appearances based off the above upgrades.
The Bingo Center/Research Facility can also unlock new upgrades for grandma. Although these upgrades can make grandmas more powerful, they would unlock the Grandmapocalypse as well. The following is a list of all upgrades for Grandma, unlocked in the Bingo Center/Research Facility.
Background changes during GrandmapocalypseEdit
- Main article: Grandmapocalypse
Changes from one stage to another can be obtained by the One Mind, Communal Brainsweep and Elder Pact upgrade. Once they're appeased, the background will change back to normal.
Store icon changes during the GrandmapocalypseEdit
Since version 1.0393, the store icon for Grandmas will change depending on the state of the Grandmapocalypse.When the Grandmatriarchs are appeased, the store icon will change back to normal.
- In Cookie Clicker, Grandma has certain quotes that she will say. The table below states the conditions to obtain the quotes and the quotes themselves
- Grandma's store icon and one of her quotes, "Moist cookies" are based on an image macro which is in turn based on Helen Thomas former member of the White House press corps.
- There is still a possibility of obtaining the nice quotes after you have over 49 grandmas, however, they also say mean and rather creepy things, even without selling them.
- The quotes "It has betrayed us, the filthy little thing." and "It tried to get rid of us, the nasty little thing." are based on J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings character, Gollum.
