You will have seen a few weeks ago how excited we were by the appearance of Mondelez's Chips Ahoy! cookies finally making their long awaited UK debut when we reviewed their Chips Ahoy! Popcorn Candy Crisp flavour. Well obviously in keeping with true @ChocMission tradition we were going to leave the best until last when it came to rating the two new flavours :) Today choco-addicts we bring you our thoughts on the all new Chips Ahoy! Crispy Choco Caramel cookies.

As with the Popcorn Candy Crisp variant these came in a 168.0g resealable plastic pack. On the wrapper these came described as 'cookies with chocolate chips, milk chocolate coated caramel croquant and wheat and corn flakes'. If it not for the impressive chocolate biscuit aromas and appealing, colourful cookies we might have reached for the Oxford dictionary to look up exactly what 'croquant' meant :)

In keeping tradition with all our biscuit, cookies and cakes reviews we taste tested these during one of our (many!!) @ChocMission office afternoon tea breaks. All of us in the team are big Chips Ahoy! fans so you can just imagine the fights we have over who 'scoffs the most'. Well this was exactly the argument that flared up over these Chips Ahoy! Crispy Choco Caramel cookies - we absolutely loved them!

The base cookies were even more delicious than standard Chips Ahoy cookies with the added cocoa adding more of a chocolatey taste to each and every bite. We soon learnt that croquant meant crunchy pieces of caramel - when these were bitten into they generated some very welcome burnt sugar like flavours. The cereal pieces didn't so much have an impact taste wise, however like the Popcorn element in the last flavour we tested they contributed texturally making them still a worthwhile addition. The ruling from the team was thumbs up all round! These are definitely cookies we are going to be buying again very soon! Let us know what you think @ChocMission.
