I admit … I’m a sucker for birthday cake/frosting flavored foods. Birthday cake ice cream will forever have a soft spot in my heart … so when I heard there were Chewy Chips Ahoy Birthday Frosting Filled cookies I had to pick up a package. Admittedly I was intrigued because Chips Ahoy has been really stepping outside the box lately and I hoped these would be as delicious as I imagined in my mind.
The cookies are your classic chewy Chips Ahoy! Chocolate chip cookie … but nestled in the middle is a birthday frosting. It’s a white frosting with colored confetti sprinkles running throughout it. Think of it as the chocolate chip cookies ode to an Oreo. Initially I thought these would be sweeter than normal … but surprisingly, they’re not that sweet. They’re about as sweet as a regular ole Chips Ahoy chewy chocolate chip cookie. The cookies are soft and the frosting is slightly stiffer. The two different worlds finding a unique balance with one another.
My thoughts? I think they’re decent cookies … but they’re definitely not game changing. The birthday frosting flavor isn’t at the forefront … which lands these along the boring sidelines. They’re unique in the fact that they’re different and in a league of their own … but my only hope would’ve been a little more bang on the birthday frosting notes.
