Wow! These are hands down, the best cookies I’ve ever had! Ever!
I’m sure everyone is already familiar with Chips Ahoy! (known by their trademark blue packaging). Personally, I’ll have Chips Ahoy! (Original), every once in a while, but it’s not really my favorite. I did however, go through a phase with Chips Ahoy! (mini), the kind that came in a tiny blue tub packaging. It was so cute and optimal for dunking in hot drinks!
Chips Ahoy! (Brownie) though, is some next level stuff! First of all, these are soft cookies! It might not be a big deal to some, but I hate that jarring feeling (it feels like my brain is being shaken out of my head) whenever I’m having something all soft and smooth (like ice-cream) and bite down on something hard (as in some kind of topping, like nuts, for example), especially if it’s unexpected (ergo, jarring). I can have something hard and crunchy on its own or I can have something soft and smooth on its own, but together, just… no. That’s why I prefer my peanut butter to be as smooth as possible (as opposed to the crunchy kind) and my breakfast cereal has to be sufficiently soggy. So, I totally appreciate the fact that these cookies are soft.
More importantly, these cookies happen to be brownie filled! Take a moment to let that sink in. I am not a chocolate-lover, by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, generally, I can’t stand the stuff. By extension, the same goes for all things chocolate-related, such as brownies. Yet somehow, I took one bite of this stuff and I was in heaven! Each cookie was soft, sweet, and basically, perfection! The brownies made up a large part of the insides (they weren’t stingy with the brownies). Surprisingly, the brownies were perfectly moist (witchcraft!) too. I wasn’t even expecting much. I just picked this pack of Chips Ahoy! (Brownie) because it was new (at least, to me). On my life, these cookies are the best I’ve ever had (damn near euphoric)! To drive my point further home, I had to resort to nicking a few photos off Google, because I didn’t have time to take any photos of my own… because I pretty much wolfed every last bit… within the duration of a single night. They were just that good! I haven’t shut up about them ever since.
I went back to The Sultan Center to pick up another pack (or ten) of the Chips Ahoy! (Brownies), but unfortunately could not find them anymore :(
Guys, please, please, please bring them back! I beg!
