“ Brand: Asda / Type: Biscuits „
Some of the days that I need a sugary snack without wanting the hassle of baking anything, I drop down to Asda to buy some of their freshly baked Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are a great convenience in the way that you can buy them and eat them straight from the pack and they taste nicer than the type of cookies that you buy inside a prepared package because they have been freshly baked in the store; also they do not cost too much, so you can put a limit to how much you are spending on snacks. Obviously, being rather sugary and being cookies in general, they are not exactly what you would call the healthy option, so I do not eat them too regularly; but eaten only occasionally they should be fine since you do need a treat now and again.
These cookies are, I would say, about average priced for a pack of a supermarket's freshly made in store cookies, at £1 for a pack of 5 cookies. However, it does have a "2 packs for £1.60" offer, which you can take advantage of to save you some money. Though these are not the cheapest compared to the preserved, crunchy type of cookies that are available, I still think that they are fairly priced, since they taste as good, or even better, than home made cookies, which cost quite a bit to buy the ingredients for anyway. For the convenience, I do think that these are worth it.
These cookies are packaged in quite a simple paper bag which is folded over and stuck on with a label stating information like the name of the product being sold, the price, and the expiry date. Since these are fresh cookies, they do not have a long shelf life (only about a few days and should be eaten on the day they are bought anyway) but that is alright as it is tempting not to just eat them all up in one go. It does not have the most versatile packaging, but, as I have stated before, it is very convenient, and you can't really expect much more for the price.
These cookies taste really nice; chewy, just the way I like cookies to be. Yes, they are a little bit too sugary for me, but the taste is still really nice and it does have a fair number of chocolate chunks in it, which really add to the taste. As for the size of the milk chocolate chunks, they are of a satisfactory size, not being pathetically small chocolate chips like the ones you find in some cookies. Overall, these taste delicious, though they do make you feel quite guilty when you are eating them since you can tell from the first bite that these cookies have a high sugar and fat content. Again, I would like to point out that these cookies would be good for an occasional treat, not something that I would recommend for you to eat every day.
Asda's bakery section also offers different varieties of these cookies at the same price, which could be interesting to know, for example, white chocolate chip and double chocolate cookies. I have tried them and they all taste really good, but I find myself sticking to the ordinary milk chocolate chip cookies more often than most.
These are nice, tasty cookies that are very convenient and they save you the trouble of having to bake them by yourself from scratch. With the very reasonable price tag of £1 (or £1.60 for 2) for a pack of 5 cookies, I cannot fault these and I would recommend them to you with 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars.
Both myself and my children love chocolate chip cookies! I have sometimes made them at home and they have turned out ok, but i was shocked when i went to Asda a while back and they had a great offer. About 20 cookies for only £2.00! (Chocolate chip/double chocolate chip and white chocolate chip).
I have been to cafes etc. where you can pay over £2 just for one cookie! I don't know how Asda can afford to sell them so cheaply. I have seen this offer on at my local Asda twice in the last 6 months and i am sure it will be repeated. Of course, they don't really have a long shelf life as they are freshly baked but id say they are good for 3 days. All varieties taste absolutely delicious and are quite filling.
Kids love cookies and if you are lucky enough to find these on offer around a child's birthday, this is an ideal party treat. Or if you have a large family they are a great buy and a great bargain.
I am currently trying to lose weight, so its not good for me to be eating cookies! but if my kids are here and they are on offer i will usually buy these as the kids often have friends over too, so there are plenty to go around.
I highly recommend these cookies with or without the special offer!
I have decided to work my through Asda's bakery, I shop there weekly, I visit the bakery weekly, why not review all the goodies.
I have 2 daughters and a husband, we all have a sweet tooth, well actually, we have a lot of sweet teeth in our house.
We all like the freshly baked cookies and although the double chocolate ones are great. (see review). We also like the lesser chocolate option which is just the standard chocolate chip cookie.
There are 5 in a bag, with a plastic panel on the front so you can see what you are getting. These cookies look like many other chocolate chip cookies and although many supermarkets are now doing them, these are of a very reasonable size, they are in fact rather large. They are the traditional biscuit colour of beige with milk chocolate chips in the biscuits. These are quite easy to spot as the colour is quite a contrast, I always opt for the cookies with the most chocolate.
The cookies are each approximately 3-4 inches in width and relatively flat. They are all circular in shape but obviously not put in shapes whilst cooked so some can be stranger circles than others.
The cookies usually cost £0.90 for the bag of 5, at the moment Asda has 'rolled back' on these and they now cost £0.70.
The cookies taste quite rich, the biscuit is not hard it is more a soft batter, just how I like it, not over cooked. The cookies do taste slightly soggy, I don't mean ringing wet but if you like shortcake for example, this cookies are fair more moist.
The cookies do taste better the fresher they are and Asda do tend to put out the freshly baked ones first thing in the morning. They don't tend to taste stale but are definitely harder by the end of the day.
The taste is typical of any chocolate chip cookie, it doesn't stand out as amazingly different from any of the other supermarkets versions but these are cheaper and taste just as good. My family likes them.
