A chocolate cookie base with chocolate chips, caramel bits, and corn flakes… or something like that. Unfortunately, these cookies look and sound a whole lot more exciting than they actually are to eat.
I did nosh on a few in one sitting, but I felt like I was just hopelessly consuming them in hopes of filling the chocolate void that they would ultimately never satisfy. For a chocolate on chocolate cookie, these really are lacking in that necessary chocolate punch.
I would go so far as to say that I would prefer to eat original Chip Ahoy! over these. I’m wondering if maybe the caramel and crispy additions featuring in these cookies meant that there was less chocolate. As they aren’t notably caramelicious or crispy, it doesn’t seem like a fair trade. Due to the fact that the cookies are already crunchy, the corn flakes don’t really add anything to the overall texture and variety within the cookie.
I also made the mistake, as shown in the picture, of not using the easy open tab to open these. Instead, I opened them at the end, and had to put them into a Ziploc bag. They’re still in that bag, and they’ll probably stay there until I’m really drunk/hungover/out of easy accessible chocolate.
Would I buy them again? No
Recommend to a friend? No
Score out of 10? 3 – I haven’t finished the bag, and it’s still up in the air as to whether or not that will happen.
