Taste Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (8/10)
Packaging Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (7/10)
My heart and stomach always have space for a good soft and chewy !
It is kinda sad, given I didn’t have the patience and still can never master the art of baking .
Baking does test a person patience, precision and not forgetting the cleaning up process is simply crazy.
That is also one of the reason why I rather just purchase if off shelf instead.
In one of my random grocery shopping day, I stumbled upon this clean white paper bag packaging.
And honestly, it is this pure clean white paper bag with a giant chocolate chip cookie that caught my attention.
It does seems to have that same look and feel of the fish shaped cookies my colleagues shared with me previously.
And after looking at the shelf, it is confirmed they both are from the same brand, Pepperidge Farm.
Unlike other brands that uses a lot of vibrant and striking colours in their packaging to attract consumers, the Pepperidge Farm packaging stood out by just looking clean, white and neat.
I personally love how they use colours that warms the heart and are comfortable to the eyes.
And to my surprise, the Pepperidge Farm seems to take cookie making serious and have a large variety of flavours and types.
I finally decided to pick the Pepperidge Farm: Chocolate Chunk Cookies – Milk Chocolate Macadamia.
I am actually impressed to see that the difference between the packaging product shot and the actual product looks quite identical. Unlike many, the packaging shots are most of the time “enhanced” with adding extra items which most of the time are “serving suggestions” or “for illustrational purposes only”.
In the packet, there are a total of 8 cookies, 4 pieces per tray which were stacked up.
The amount of chunky chocolate are generous in every piece of cookie.
And I love how the chocolate chunk holds on to it’s shape yet melts instantly in your mouth as you bite them.
Together with the chunky roasted macadamia nuts, perfecto !
That mix of soft and chewy cookie and the aroma of the roasted macadamia nuts is simply irresistible.
This is actually a soft cookie type, which may not be to the liking of some individuals.
If you prefer the thinner and crispy type, this is not for you, but you can try the other version with the label “Thin & Cripsy”.
