Why do we even eat regular Chips Ahoy cookies anyhow? The Original is chalky garbage, the Chewy ones are too small. You have the Chewy Gooey Megafudges, which get a little closer to the requisite chocolate flavor, but even they taste like they were designed by someone who maybe once had chocolate as a child and was then asked to describe that taste to a blind and deaf food scientist (I exaggerate).
But at least Chips Ahoy’s new Chewy Brownie-Filled cookies look promising.
The net-consensus so far is that these slightly thicker, slightly richer, slightly chocolate-ier takes on the beloved Chewies definitely taste like brownies, albeit artificial and somewhat grainy grocery store ones. The fellas over at Junk Food Guy describe them as follows: “These not only smelled like brownie, but they definitely tasted like brownies…deep cocoa flavor that morphed into a nice not-too-sweet chocolate taste as I chewed more. Plus, and this could all be in my head, but I felt like these had that great stick-to-the-root-of-your-mouth sensation that brownies typically give.”
Of course, Adam from Impulsive Buy is a bit more exacting with his approval: “It’s not quite fudgy or chocolaty enough to really convince you it’s a brownie (even a packaged brownie like the one Fiber One makes) and not quite as classic tasting as a chocolate chip cookie, so I can’t guarantee it’ll satisfy your craving for either.”
It will, however, let you fulfill all your childhood fantasies of dipping brownies into milk without having them fall apart, which can’t be a bad thing.
