I love cookies. I especially love homemade cookies. So I was skeptical when I was asked to try these "Kroger's The Truly Awesome™ Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies," which are NOT homemade, obviously.
So they sent me 2 boxes to try. Aaron and I opened a box and tried them. We were not impressed. Not that they were bad, because they weren't. But there were exactly what you'd expect from a boxed cookie. Yes, they were a little bigger than average, but there also weren't as many as you'd find in an average box, so I figure you get the same amount of cookie overall.
So we figured we would try a suggestion that was included in my package- put the cookies in the microwave for a few seconds. Apparently this makes them taste like they just came out of the oven... like homemade!
Well, surprisingly, they were right! We put them in the microwave for about 20 seconds and they came out warm, soft, and delicious. We devoured the whole pack of cookies as soon as we realized how good they were!
I have to admit, I still prefer homemade cookies.
But this is a pretty decent alternative.
