A number of companies have attempted to successfully combine the (potato) chip with chocolate. Today, I review Hannahmax Baking's latest attempt: All Natural Crunchy Cookie Chips.
This snack contains no trans fats, artificial flavors or colors, preservatives or GMOs. Despite all these voids, it tastes good! I like the sweet fudge-y - but not intensely sweet - taste.
While they're crunchy like potato chips, though, that's where their similarity to potato chips ends. I'm not wowed by these. Anyone can make them. Just overcook a batch of cookies, but don't let them burn, and you've got crunchy cookie chips. Yours will likely be cheaper than these - $3.99 for a 6 oz. bag (approx. six servings). I got this bag at Raley's/Nob Hill Foods.
All in all, I give these cookie chips a 6. Sorry, Hannahmax Baking, this product is nothing special. If you'd like to send me some for free, though, or mail me cold hard cash, I will gladly re-write my review in your favor.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Over the weekend, I visited Healdsburg, a little town in Sonoma County (aka wine country). People were walking along the sidewalks sporting wine glasses, heading for the next tasting. Me? I darted into a Sharffen Berger shop. Prepared to lecture them on the evils of child labor on cocoa plantations, I asked if they carry any fair trade chocolate. Surprisingly, they said "yes" and even gave me samples of fair trade Dagoba. It was yummy. I ate it too fast to photograph it, but I did capture this plaque:
My daughter made me some chocolate potato chip cookies from Bossy Betty's recipe and they were good!ReplyDelete
Robyn, you are a chip off the old block! (Of chocolate.)ReplyDelete
Overcooked cookies? I like mine chewy, so don't think I'd enjoy them as a 'chip.'ReplyDelete
I'm with Alex...I like my cookies chewy!!ReplyDelete
Haven't seen cookie chips for sale here in Canada but I have eaten some chips (shaped like Pringles) that were chocolate. Even better!ReplyDelete
My daughter makes cookie chips. Every first batch of cookies are so overcooked they crackle. But, she still tries...ReplyDelete
I've seen a similar brownie crisp type thing in our supermarkets but the price hasn't persuaded me to try them yet. I probably won't now. I love chocolate too much to eat something that isn't absolutely yummy.ReplyDelete
I like that sign. I recently read that craving chocolate means you need magnesium. So you must eat chocolate for your health.ReplyDelete
Those sound like cookies that need more flour. But, now chocolate chip cookies sound good.
Thanks for doing all the research on these chocolate items, Robyn. Someone has to do it, and I like your evaluations.ReplyDelete
No cookie chips for me, I'll pass.
I laughed about the rewrite for cold hard cash. Will be waiting to see if Hannahmax Baking takes you up on the offer.ReplyDelete
Loved the sign!
Dagoba? So they grow it on Yoda's planet? I like my chox chip cookies chewie and soft too.ReplyDelete
Even just looking at the bag I don't think I would try them. And now I don't have to. :) I have always loved that chocolate quote! It's one of my favorites.ReplyDelete
Hmmm such chips don't sound appetizing at all, bet you got that sign plastered on your wallReplyDelete
Interesting post, though I don't think I will go for this cookies!ReplyDelete
Our continued perseverance in combining chocolate with other food products is what separates us from the animals.ReplyDelete
I haven't tried chocolate cookie chips yet but I have been enjoying chocolate and caramel flavored rice cakes and they're pretty good.ReplyDelete
While I wouldn't turn away from anything with chocolate in it, I do prefer my chocolate in the form of chewy, gooey chocolate. I have never seen any product in my area that was a cookie/chip.ReplyDelete
I prefer chewy gooey too. These were pretty tasty, but I'm not going to buy them again.ReplyDelete
Good point, Christian. It's the only factor, really.
Stephen, yes, those are pretty good. I like the carmel ones better than the choco ones.
Keep a smile.
Never thought of trying to make thin cookies and overcooking them. Hunh. Who'd have thunk it?ReplyDelete
You crack me up with your cocoa passion. Good for you!
I like potato chips. And I like chocolate. But I like them separate, please.ReplyDelete
Well, this isn't something I would have thought of, but I would try them if given the opportunity! The sign made me smile. :DReplyDelete
Potato chips combined with chocolate? Ummm...I think I'll pass!ReplyDelete
Glad they tasted the way they look to meReplyDelete
Really the idea of chips and chocolate together just doesn't do it for me, although you actually made it sound good.ReplyDelete
I actually like those chocolate covered potato chips. You know, the whole salty and sweet thing. But having crispy, overcooked cookies does not sound good to me. It sounds like someone trying to capitalize on a baking accident. Pass!ReplyDelete
overbaked cookies....been there done that... I agree with you!ReplyDelete
Hahhahha.... If they would send you cash or more cookies, you would rewrite your review... That is so funny.ReplyDelete
I have refused to write a review for a couple companies because their food was that bad.
You may not be wowed, but for every cheesesteak we have here, there's a plate of Scrapple.ReplyDelete
I'll pass on the cookies, which is a rarity for me! Great sign, but I hope that I never have to give up chocolate.ReplyDelete
Count me in as a chewy cookie lover. The idea of chocolate covered chips intrigue me, but I have never tried them. I'm not sure if I've ever seen any packaged for sale around here before.ReplyDelete
Rather worryingly, the are selling chocolate flavoured potato chips aka crisps, over in England. Nobody appears to be buying them.ReplyDelete
Neat sign, by the way.
Three in the morning and the lovely Robyn is going to award me bonus points for commenting at such an hour. Thank you, Robyn.
Gary :) x
These would go over great in Scotland, where stout-hearted heroes gobble the deep-fried Mars bar. I think in America we're too puny and wimpy. However, I bet there would be a certain market (southern mountain, Deliverance country) for the chocolate-glazed pork rind.ReplyDelete
Mm... yeah I don't think overcooked cookies would wow me either.ReplyDelete
Margaret, deep fried Mars bars? Yes. Chocolate covered pork rinds? I'm not sure. Oh, what the heck.ReplyDelete
Thank you, dear choco-fans. I must find something tastier for the next review.
Have a sweet week.
Next party idea, a buffet of unusual chocolate treats. Then schedule it when I can attend.ReplyDelete
6 out of what? If it's 10, then six doesn't seem all that bad. For me though, not a product I'm interested. And that price tag, woo. Too high.ReplyDelete
