And if it’s Milanos you prefer, consider that Milanos are basically everyone’s favorite Pepperidge Farm cookie. It’s like saying your favorite band is The Beatles.

This is a line from some guy’s diatribe against Milano lovers, citing why Chessman are better (what a goon.)

Now, certainly there was a time where this dope had a point. Milanos are a classic, beloved cookie, but saying you loved Milanos didn’t exactly give you character… it didn’t make you individualistic.

Pepperidge Farm Irish Creme Milano and Caramel Macchiato Milano Cookies

That’s probably not so true today, seven years after Bozo the Clown published his article. That’s because there have been about 150 different Milano flavors that have spawned, and your favorite probably says a whole lot about you:

  • Double Dark Chocolate: “I’m so sophisticated!” 
  • Chili Chocolate: “I’m a millennial and I’m zany!” 
  • Toasted Marshmallow: “I love glamping!” 
  • Pumpkin Spice: “I got my Uggs on sale!” 
  • Dulce de Leche: “My in-laws are Spanish!”

What will liking these new Irish Cream Milanos or Caramel Macchiato Milanos say about you?

What They Taste Like: Irish cream! (And shortbread.) (And chocolate.) I’ll be honest… I don’t really know how to describe the flavor of Irish cream when it doesn’t have that boozy bite. But this has “it.” Irish Cream Milanos have a bit of that creamy, smooth, nutty flavor layered within that buttery biscuit cookie. It pairs very well with the chocolate filling. The cookies are a little dry like all Milanos, but remedied easily by dipping in coffee.

What They Say About You: “I like to be drunk by 9:00 AM!” 

Overall Rating7.5 out of 10

Pepperidge Farm Caramel Macchiato Milano Cookies

Pepperidge Farm Caramel Macchiato Milano Cookies

What They Taste Like: Coffee first, caramel second. Caramel Macchiato Milanos are more strongly flavored than possibly any other Milano, though they stop short of being overpowering. You don’t even have to dip them in coffee to get the flavor as such. It just seems like a very natural pairing for a delicate, “distinctive” cookie. They’re really great.

What They Say About You: “Don’t talk to me until I’ve had my coffee!” 

Overall Rating: 8 out of 10
