My wife and I both had a long day at our respective jobs yesterday. So, since she was picking up the kids from my parents’ house, I told her I would stop off and pick up something easy for dinner.
While at the store, I decided to get something for dessert. And, since my oldest daughter recently told me she was in the mood for chocolate chip cookies, I headed to that section (despite the fact I have plenty of cookie dough in our freezer right now).
I had planned on buying a better known brand of cookies. But, the top brands were more expensive than I was willing to pay so I ended up settling for Food Club Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies instead.
I have had Food Club products in the past and wasn’t a fan of many of them. But, as far as these cookies go, they got the recipe right.
Since I have had some bad experiences with Food Club products in the past, I really wasn’t sure what to expect from the cookies. I figured they would be like most of their products; OK but obviously lacking something. However, that wasn’t the case. I won’t say they were better than the top brands but they were easily as good as cookies made by Keebler or some other well-known company. And, considering they cost us about $1 less, they did offer more in terms of value.
Another concern I had with the cookies when I first bought them was whether or not they were as soft as they advertised. This is important because our youngest daughter just got her teeth and is still getting the hang of chewing her food. I wanted her to have one of these but, if they weren’t soft enough, she wouldn’t have been able to.
This, however, was not a problem. The cookies really were soft and chewy; even after I put them in the fridge for a bit after discovering the chips were starting to melt.
As a result of that and the taste, we ended up eating quite a few of the cookies the first night I had them home; even our youngest daughter had two of them. Again, that is something I would expect from a more expensive brand.
If you are in the mood for chocolate chip cookies, don’t feel like baking some in the oven and don’t want to spend a lot of money on them, this is a brand I would recommend buying.
