I love Pepperidge Farm products because they are so yummy and perfectly baked. Prices are pretty steep, but Pepperidge Farm is a premium cookie brand, and they usually deliver on taste. However, I was disappointed with the Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Chunk Dark Chocolate Pecan. Perhaps I didn't read the label well, or I was just expecting something entirely different from what I had. But I didn't like it as much.
What I liked:
- The cookie itself was big.
- There were large dark chocolate chunks.
- You can definitely taste the pecans. Yes, they didn't skimp on that.
What I didn't like:
- It was crunchy! I would have loved a soft-baked variety.
- The taste wasn't very chocolatey... more of sugary. It reminded me of Snickerdoodles, though not that sweet.
- 140 calories per cookie. Boo!
- 8 grams of fat per serving? Ugh! The rest of the ingredients aren't something to be happy about, either.
I wasn't impressed with the Pepperidge Farm Chocolate Chunk Dark Chocolate Pecan. Sure, it had big chocolate chunks, but that was the only saving grace. The cookie, as a whole, lacked the deliciousness and "comfort" of soft-baked ones. Maybe I should have dunked it in milk to soften it. Or popped it in the microwave for a few seconds. Nothing special about it, except the brand. Would I recommend it to friend? I'd recommend other Pepperidge products first. Would I buy it again? Probably not.
