Truly Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preservative-free cookies taste like homemade

I recently tried Kroger’s Truly Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies. I think that they may be the best store-bought chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever eaten. Chocolate lovers won’t be disappointed in these cookies as there are plenty of chocolate chips in every bite, unlike with many store-bought chocolate chip cookies.  I like the fact that these cookies are made without preservatives.

The cookies have a homemade taste, especially if you warm one up for about 15 seconds in the microwave. Yummy. These cookies are perfect with a cold glass of milk, according to my husband. I can’t drink milk, so I guess I have to take his word for it.

Since these cookies are a Kroger brand, they’re only available at Kroger food stores, which includes stores such as Ralph’s, Smith’s and Fred Meyer. I shop at Smith’s and they had a big display of these cookies when they first became available. I didn’t buy any then, as it was around Christmas time, and I was in the midst of doing my Christmas baking. I had more than enough homemade cookies around the house, I didn’t need any store-bought ones to add to the mix. A couple of weeks ago, during my bi-monthly trip to the grocery store, I was in the cookie aisle and noticed these cookies on the shelf. They were on sale at two boxes for five dollars, so of course I bought two boxes.  They sure didn’t last long at my house.

I think my biggest complaint with the cookies is that there are only eight cookies to the box. I don’t know what the regular price of these cookies is, but $2.50 for eight cookies is a little steep for me, so I probably will only buy these as a special treat.
