Trader Joe’s Crispy Cookies Filled with Belgian Chocolate, yes that is the real name or as we call them at home, NOT Milano’s. This is the cookie that started a lawsuit with Pepperidge Farm. You can read more about the lawsuit at one of my favorite sites Consumerist .
My feeling are at the end of the day if Pepperidge Farm made their Milano’s cookies better they wouldn’t have to worry about loosing sales. I recently bought the Milano in question to compare the quality, and they were so terrible! This is a cookie I used to buy and eat all the time, but once you have a better quality version there is no going back.
This cookie is pretty much always on my shopping list between my husband and I we eat almost a whole package in a week (16 total cookies). But I guess this will decrease since discovering the new TJ’s Crispy Crunchy Ginger Cookies.
Ingredients: chocolate [sugar, chocolate liquor, milk fat, skimmed cocoa powder, cocoa butter, soy lecithin (emulsifier), natural flavor], wheat flour, sugar, vegetable oil and fat (palm oil, rapeseed oil, coconut fat, palm kernel oil), salt, glucose syrup (wheat or corn), skimmed milk powder, leavening (ammonium bicarbonate), egg.
What this cookie has going for it is high quality Belgian chocolate so when you bite into the cookie the chocolate has that satisfying crunch. Belgian chocolate is a dark chocolate and I prefer it over the Swiss style milk chocolate. Everyone has their own preference, I was a milk chocolate person until in my adult years I came to appreciate and love dark chocolate.
These cookies are very satisfying when you have a chocolate craving, but beware, it’s hard to only eat one or two!
