A Few Words

Chocolate Chip Cookies are a great snack or a fine desert.

You can make them yourself, buy them from a baker or purchase them at your grocery store.

There are so many varieties to choose from: chocolate chips with nuts, thin and crispy, soft baked etc. It's difficult to make decisions sometimes.

While the idea of which is tastiest is in the opinion of the consumer, I have developed this page to provide some of my own opinions on what I think was best. I'm hoping you can share some feedback yourself and perhaps enlighten me.

Let me know if you agree with my opinions.

The Contenders

Well I hope to make this an ongoing piece as I encounter new brands of chocolate chip cookies. I've decided to go by brand for the most part because each company makes a variety of cookies - that sometimes basically have similar tastes.

My personal favorites are the thin and crispy kind, although sometimes I am in the mood for one more chewy and soft baked.

I like nuts sometimes, but I'll try and stick with basic chocolate chip for the most part, since the chocolate is the essential ingredient in the cookie.

Happy reading and eating!

True Fact - According to the Competitive Eater's Website

The world record for most chocolate chip cookies ever eaten is:

Tates

Price: $4.29

A new cookie I discovered at Walmart recently.

A nice thin crispy cookie with a very chocolate chip taste. The chips aren't the kind that melt away and the cookie has a clean, crisp, distinctive buttery taste. One of my new favorites

You get about 12 in a pack I believe and it is kind of pricey compared to some of the other brands, but well worth it.

Price: $4 - 5

The cookies are thin and crisp and have a sweet buttery taste.

The chocolate chips for a cookie of this size are tasty and authentic. I really enjoyed these and the problem was that I couldn't stop eating them.

I like my cookies to be think and crisp and they taste like they may have been left a little longer in the oven than necessary. But they were good.

They almost melt in your mouth and break up into little sweet granules.

The price is a little hefty, but I prefer these to the more well known ones like Nabisco, Keebler, etc.

Highly recommended, but make sure you get good exercise too because too many sweets are not healthy.

Mrs. Thinsters

Price: $3.50

A smaller cookie with about twenty in a bag maybe. I hadn't seen this brand before. The cookies are crispy and the chocolate chips have a nice taste, but the cookie itself seems to break apart a bit. I'm not sure how to describe it. I thought it broke into small chunks that had the texture (not taste) of oatmeal. It was almost like eating an oatmeal cookie - which I don't care for.

This was a new brand I discovered at Target. I don't think it will be my favorite, but the cookies have a certain appeal because of their miniature size.

Keebler

Price: $2.50 - $4.00

Keebler is one of those standard brands that you are probably well familiar with if you are over the age of 25. It's been around awhile and the little elves are an iconic trademark that most people equate immediately with cookies.

I don't really care for these too much because they have a taste that reminds of of chewing on drywall, even though I've never attempted to do so. I like the M and M's because they add some more flavor to the snack.

At one time I found these enjoyable but not only do they lack that buttery taste I enjoy in a cookie, they often come out tasting a bit stale - which they may well be.

The prices vary, I've seen them on sale for as cheap as $2 and as expensive as $5.99 depending on where you are shopping and what time of the year it is.

They are nice in a crunch, but if I had to make a choice, I would say "pass".

My favorite type of cookie is:

Pepperage Farm

Pepperage Farm

Price: $2.50 - $5

Pepparage Farm are available in a variety of flavors. I also enjoy the Chocolate Chip and Macadamia Nut variety. Those are delicious.

I am reviewing the Thin and Crispy type this time and those are pretty well tasty. They have a nice full butter flavor and the chocolate chips are firm but collapse delicately in your mouth. As you savor the cookie, your mouth is filled with sweet aromas of vanilla and a hint of confectioners sugar.

They are, in short, absolutely delicious.

You only get about ten or twelve in a pack however, so they go rather fast. The packaging is easy to seal, so they manage to stay fresh.

Of all, so far, these are my favorite. I could honestly eat an entire package in one sitting.

Famous Amos

Famous Amos

Price $1.00 - 4.50

Depending upon the size of the package you get and where you go shopping, the Famous Amos brand can be had for a few dollars.

The cookies are smaller and fairly crisp but a bit crumbly too.

They used to be my favorite, but recently I've felt their taste to be too manufactured. The chips are a nice size and flavorful, but the dough itself has sort of an after taste and always seems to leave an uncomfortable film on my mouth.

They aren't bad with a coffee or a soda, but after a few specimens the cookies began to loose their energy and become boring. It starts to become a chore to finish even a small package.

Because they are sometimes available in snack packs, they make a good addition to a lunch or a road trip. I don't think I'd go out of my way to stock my cupboard with them, or serve them at a party however.

Basil's Bavarian Cappuccino Chocolate Chip

Basil's

Price: $1.00 - $2.00

I've only been able to find these in vending machines and they are one of my favorite snack cookies.

They have chocolate chips mixed in with these candied cappuccino chips which have a sweet candy flavor. The cookie resembles that of Famous Amos a bit, and isn't the best, but still is pretty good.

When I find a bag in the machine I usually buy more than one and consume them pretty quickly.

They are easy to eat and have a nice fresh taste.

If you know where to get these in the grocery store, please let me know.
