Of the three Chips Ahoy! flavors I tried, Original was my least favorite. Its “crunch” was a little too much for me. While the cookies are advertised as soft and chewy on the inside with a crispy exterior, that was not my experience. As I chewed the cookie, it was so dry that I was left searching for a glass of milk, and the crumbs left a trail of evidence on my shirt and table. In addition, the cookie smell was quite bland; I expected the delicious aroma of freshly baked cookie dough, but in reality, I smelt just about nothing. Despite the unexciting scent, this cookie left a rich chocolate flavor, and I got the perfect amount of sweetness in every bite. Overall, I rated this cookie a 4/10.

Hershey’s fudge filled

While the Original cookies aren’t near the top of my list, the Hershey’s fudge-filled cookies are up there. Though the cookies are a tad smaller than the Originals, each bite was full of delightful chocolate fudge that had my tastebuds dancing. A cup of milk with this treat is something I could enjoy on the daily. As advertised, the “chewy” marketing matched the product. The cookie had a perfect chew, as the fudge added a smooth texture. A whiff of chocolate deliciousness filled my nose as I tore the package open. However, one con about this cookie was its dull appearance. I would have liked to see something more eye-catching than what looked like a plain chocolate chip cookie. Nabisco, I suggest finding a way to incorporate the “fudge-filled” on the exterior of the cookie to better appeal to consumers. Overall, I rated this cookie a 7/10.

Confetti Cake

Confetti Cake cookies let you enjoy the deliciousness of confetti cake in a chewy, soft-baked cookie.

The third and final cookie I reviewed was my favorite, the Confetti Cake cookie. The chewy cookie dough was studded with colorful confetti-shaped pieces that mimicked the appearance of sprinkles on a birthday cake. Each bite of this cookie led to an “mmm” and a grin. With just the right texture, the soft cookie and bits of crunch left me smiling. These cookies were not too filling, as the size is on point. I’d love to see Nabisco make these cookies smell more like my birthday, given I didn’t get much of anything. With little to no crumbling, this cookie held together at a strong 8/10

Chips Ahoy! cookies are unique in all sorts of ways. Whether it’s a crispy or tender cookie, Nabisco gives the satisfaction of sweetness to its consumers. The Confetti Cake received first place; it was very tasty and resembles a birthday cake. Second place was awarded to the Hershey’s fudge filled cookie, as this cookie gives a savory fudge taste, though a bare appearance. This cookie needed a tweak of color to acquire a better rating. Finally, the Originals in third place, as I would have liked to see a more eye-catching appearance and a chewier texture, rather than a crispy overload.
