First Impressions: New! Chewy Granola Trail Mix Cookies from Pepperidge Farm
I’m a big fan of the Distinctive Cookie Collection by Pepperidge Farm. Strolling through the grocery aisle today, I came across a new soft cookie. The people at Pepperidge Farm can do it so much better than I can, so here’s what the back of the bag says:
Cookie meets Granola. Granola inspires Cookie. Together they live deliciously ever after… and you will too. Pepperidge Farm Chewy Granola cookies begin with a flavorful blend of smooth rolled oats, whole grains and golden steel cut oats – the heartiest of the hearthy and trail-ready (even if you’re not quite trekking though wilderness…). Our Trail Mix recipe is loaded with raisins, dark chocolate and almonds – pleasantly lumpy, irresistibly bumpy and baked full of wholesome satisfaction in every chewy bite.
I’ve got to say. Well worth the purchase. Regularly priced at $3.59 for a 8.6oz bag of 8 cookies. I bought mine on sale for 2 for $4. 140 calories and 6 grams of fat per cookie. I must admit, the words of Pepperidge Farm are pretty spot on. Don’t let the “Made with Whole Grain” scare you. This is one delicious cookie. Might be a decent alternative to snacking on a hike. I don’t think it will replace what a real granola bar will give you, but it’s far tastier than any granola bar I’ve ever had. I really liked the dark chocolate and almond combination. The chewy texture of the cookie mixed in with the addition of raisins put this cookie to another level. Very impressive.
