REVIEW: Chips Ahoy! Soft Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies
I can’t believe I never even got a call from Chips Ahoy! when they named this product after me. Introducing Chips Ahoy! “Soft Chunky” Peanut Butter Cookies!
This product is targeted towards those of us who want the best of all worlds. In addition to their original chocolate chip cookies, Chips Ahoy! offers a chewy line and a chunky line. This is all of that. It better be a total mouth party if I’m going to treat myself to some cookies, so I prefer my cookies with lots of crapped crammed into them. While I usually prefer crunch, I still gotta go soft every now and then. You throw some peanut butter chips in there and I had little choice but to scoop up these Chips Ahoy! Soft Chunky Peanut Butter cookies, even if they fill me with horrible memories of everybody calling me “Soft Chunky” on the playground in middle school.
If you want to become Soft Chunky in record speed, Chips Ahoy! Soft Chunky Peanut Butter cookies are a great option. Each cookie is 90 calories with 4g of fat, 13g of carbs, and 7g of sugar. How many cookies do you usually eat in one sitting? I always ate them by the 4-full when I was a kid, which provides some insight into “Soft Chunky.” These bad boys feature both chocolate chips as well as peanut butter flavored chips. The cookies are baked with “partially defatted peanut flour.” I’m looking for ways to partially defat myself, but I’m just not sure cookies are the answer.
Or maybe Chips Ahoy! Soft Chunky cookies are the answer for slimming down, because these cookies are pretty boring and I see no reason to keep eating them. The cookie itself has a moderate peanut butter flavor that probably won’t disappoint nor overwhelm you. The sweetness is what falls flat for me. At the very least, it’s an authentic peanut taste because they use both real peanut butter and peanuts as separate ingredients, in addition to that partially defatted peanut flour. “Floury” is a good way to describe this cookie.The chocolate chips and peanut butter chips are small, so the “chunky” angle is just kind of whatever. Needs more chunks, to be honest.
If you’re partial to the Chips Ahoy! brand and are craving some peanut butter, go ahead and pick up Chips Ahoy! Soft Chunky Peanut Butter cookies. They don’t taste terrible. You’re getting exactly what you wanted, but with no real wow factor. I rather save my 90 calories per cookie on something more interesting, such as a S’mores Oreo or perhaps anything else.
In summary, these are just thick ass chewy cookies. They’re fine.
