With a CVS Pharmacy located across the street from my apartment building, I usually find myself shopping there several times a week. One of the sections that I always visit is the ‘Ten For $10’ area, which is usually located in or near the regular canned / packaged food aisle. The ‘Ten For $10’ section features a fairly – wide and growing selection of high – quality food items, including a selection of Baker’s Batch brand cookies. The three varieties of these cookies that I have seen at more than one CVS are Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin and Almonette Cookies
Prior to seeing them at CVS Pharmacy, I had never seen or heard of Baker’s Batch cookies. Each of the varieties contains approximately 24 delicious cookies and their regular retail price is only $1. Amazingly, I think that the flavor, texture and overall quality of all three Baker’s Batch is comparable to any name brand variety. One of these cookies, the Almonette variety, is particularly flavorful and expertly – baked. Presented here, in an effort to assist the consumer, is one food writer’s product review of Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies, which are normally stocked and sold at CVS Pharmacies
The net weight of the standard – sized package of Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies at CVS Pharmacy is 12 ounces. According to the package label, the container holds approximately 12 two – cookie servings. To me, this serving size seems realistic. Since I started eating these cookies, I have found that two of them usually satisfy my appetite and sweet tooth, at least temporarily.
In physical size, the package of Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies is quite large. The package measures approximately inches in length by inches in width. The cookies themselves are fairly large, also. Each cookie measures roughly inches across.
When it comes to price, I don’t think you would be able to find a more economically – priced variety of cookies anywhere. The regular retail price charged for one 12 ounce package of Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies at Hartford, Connecticut area CVS Pharmacies is $1. That is not a sale price. That is the everyday price for these cookies, which to me, are definitely just as good as any name brand variety of cookies. After seeing these cookies retailing for $1 per package, I really have to wonder why similar, name brand cookies cost so much more. Based upon several criteria, including size, price, flavor and overall quality, I think that these cookies from CVS Pharmacy are an incredible bargain.
The texture of Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies is very pleasant and enjoyable. These cookies are soft and slightly delicate, yet they still maintain a degree of firmness that provide a sense of substance and bite to the item. Personally, I think that the texture of Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies is one of the product’s most appealing factors. I don’t know exacctly why, but when I eat these cookies, their texture reminds me of fancy, special – occasion cookies.
Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies contain 140 calories, with 70 calories from fat, per two cookie (30 gram) serving. These cookies also contain 2 grams of saturated fat, 2.5 grams trans fat, 8 grams total fat, less than 5 mg of cholesterol, 60 mg of sodium, 16 grams total carbohydrates, 0 grams of dietary fiber, 7 grams of sugars and 1 gram of protein, per two cookie serving.
Taste / Flavor
Bake’s Batch Almonette Cookies are very tasty cookies. I don’t mean that they are tasty for a $1 product, they are just very flavorful cookies, period. I honestly don’t understand why the retail price of these cookies is so low. The almond flavor in these cookies is pronounced, but not over – powering. Their flavor, much like their texture, is somewhat delicate, yet very satisfying. Also, these cookies are not overly sweet and they taste equally excellent either as a snack on their own, or as a dessert at the end of a meal. To me, Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies actually taste elegant and are very sensual.
Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies are packaged in a long, clear plastic tray. The tray is further packaged in a sienna – brown and blue wrapper that features a clear window and the yellow words ‘Almonette Cookies’ emblazoned across the front. The package that is sitting in front of me as I type, is halfway – full and all of the remaining cookies appear to be fully – intact. Of the other half of the package only one cookie, the first one in the package, was broken.
The Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies that are available at CVS Pharmacies are easy to open, but do not re – close very effectively. The plastic wrapper tears easily and after the package has been opened, it is probably best to re – wrap the cookies, or place them in a cookie jar or other sealed container. The rear and side labels of the wrapper list all pertinent ingredient and nutritional information and the name of the cookies’ manufacturer : Traditional Baking, Inc, from Bloomington, California.
After months of seeing them, I finally purchased a 12 ounce package of Baker’s Batch Almonette Cookies at CVS
