Despite having a multitude of very willing and kind American site sponsors we often find ourselves scratching around for a decent cookie when our cravings hit. Those of you reading this from the US will probably know that here in the UK when it comes to cookies we simply don't make them as good as you guys - in fact we only really have one cookie brand worth mentioning and that's Burton Biscuit Co's famous 'Maryland cookies'. Well Maryland have recently expanded their range to a sub brand named - Gooeys. This week in search of a decent cookie craving killer we decided to give them a try.
These are currently available in most good UK supermarkets where you should find them on sale in both a single and multi-pack format. For the sake of easiness we decided to buy the multi-pack of snack sized portions (this also helped us all get a taste of them without the keener biscuit lovers snatching them all first!). These came in a box of 5 packs which held 2 cookies inside at a time. Packaging and presentation wise we had nothing to complain about here. The snack packs were handy and just about the right size to enjoy as a mid-afternoon snack.
Overall these Maryland Gooeys Chocolate were far from perfect but we collectively thought they were a decent enough option for someone looking to satisfy a cookie craving here in the UK. As we made mention to above the actual number of cookie options here in the UK for us Brits is extremely limited. Once you start looking past Maryland the rest of the market is really rather bare so we came into trying these not only having high hopes but we also high expectations. Luckily these were pretty sound and on a value basis we really had nothing to strongly contest about. They might not hold a flag to the likes of Chips Ahoy! but that would just be asking way too much. Let us know what you made of them @ChocMission.
