Store-bought cookies: which do you like?

UsodaUsoda Posts: 918Registered Users
I've developed a cookie hankering of late, but don't bake anymore (hate clean-up and tiny kitchen). So, I'm looking for your store-bought cookie suggestions.

I've tried the Whole Foods 360 chocolate chip cookies and vanilla wafers -- they're alright.

Are there any you especially like/love/recommend?

    The whole foods vegan peanut butter cookie is soft & chewy with crispy edges :)

    The only boxed cookie I ever buy is 365 chocolate sandwich cremes cookies. I make cookies & cream milkshakes with them.

    I prefer my cookies with coffee so it might not match what you need.

    My #1 favorite are Walkers Shortbread, preferably fingers
    and #2 are Maple Creme cookies, usually purchased at Safeway

    Probably not too helpful :lol:

    Trader Joe's dark chocolate chunk almond cookies have freakin' CRACK in them. Do not buy unless you want to get addicted.

    RCC, the fact that you don't include the dark chocolate chunk almond cookies in your list hurts my soul since you work in the same building with them every day.

    They'd find me in the back in a corner stuffing my face with them if I worked there.

    Safeway makes these chewy chocolate cookies which are about the best thing ever. Especially if you heat them up after leaving the package open so it's like soft browny in the middle and crispy edge on the outside. I swear the cookies are actually made of brownie batter and crack!

    :dies: I would seriously have cookie overload in that store with all those choices!

    In a pinch and on the cheap Stop & Shop have these store brand ones that I love because they're soft and chewy.

    Have I really missed all of those different cookies at Trader Joe's? I didn't know they even made that many - perhaps they're just hard to spot since they're all above the freezers or up in the front by the registers. Or is my TJ's just small?
  • redcelticcurlsredcelticcurls Posts: 17,502Registered Users
    There are so many that many of them are easy to miss. Ours are over the frozen stuff. I maybe posted half of what we carry for cookies.

    You are well-placed.

    How many of what you're sharing do you get to eat yourself? I ask because I'd probably be in the back with springy, stuffing myself sick and silly.

    We have a pretty active tasting program. We're supposed to know what everything tastes like, or at least be able to describe something about it if it's something we don't eat.

    For example, I can still talk about some of the spicier dishes or the cilantro dressing even though I'd never eat them. I know what my co workers think of them and go from there.

    Part of why we get a discount is to encourage us to eat our own stuff, lol. I rarely buy cookies to take home because I have portion control issues. But, I've tasted them all at some point. God love the break room and times when we get influxes of new people.

    I do sometimes buy those sea salt brownies for PMS fixes.

    I find I get overwhelmed when browsing the cookies at TJ's, but I can always rely on my almond cookies for a fix. I can't wait to try those popcorn cookie things, they just sound so interesting. One sort of cookie I tried and wasn't super crazy about was the s'mores one, not even sure if they still carry it.

    The mini dark chocolate peanut butter cups are EVIL. EVIL!!

    Those s'mores ones are not so great out of the container. But, they're awesome if you nuke one for about five seconds.

    I even tried that and they were still kind of meh to me. Maybe I'm just THAT hooked on the almond cookies. :lol: If I'm going to consume those calories I want a cookie O. :lol:
