Subject #4: Rainbow Cookies
I found these cookies from Prisma, a grocery store we started visiting recently because the selection is better than that of Selver, which is our old standby. The brand name is Rainbow and the product is simply called Cookies. They are made in Germany. On the Estonian label, the product was called šokolaadiküpsised, which I would actually translate as “chocolate cookies”. Oh well. The packaging also claims that the cookies are 40% milk and dark chocolate chips!
Opening the package, I was immediately hit by an intense chocolate aroma. The cookies are crunchy and thick. They sort of remind me of classic Chips Ahoys, but these are slightly thicker, and they appear to contain more chips as well.
These cookies are actually good! They defintely pack in a good amount of chocolate, and the surrounding cookie, while crunchy, isn’t too dry. I think warming up one of these in the microwave on a damp paper towel would yield excellent results. The only problem I have is that the cookie lacks any kind of buttery flavor. But if I want cookies with real butter, I can make them myself– for a mass-produced store variety, these are pretty good. I’d buy them again.
