Okay, first thing: I am not a fan of boxed and packaged cookies. Call me spoiled, but they just don't have that richness and great texture of homemade. And then there was Bud's Best Cookies.
These aren't standard cookies. Along with the basic favorites, there's some new and different flavor combos that seriously rock, like Orange Bite Delight and Butterfinger Candy n' Cookies. My son was only too excited to be a taste tester.
Pictured: Iced Oatmeal, Butterfinger, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate, Mint, Peanut Butter and Vanilla Sandwich Cookies, Orange Bite Delight, Pecan Supremes, and the Stage Plank.
They were all fabulous, for real. While a firm cookie, they weren't dry at all, and the flavors were very authentic, without the cardboard feel and taste that was my experience with a lot of boxed cookies. The kids raved about all of them. Except the Mint Sandwich Cookies, which they sort of didn't get their hands on, and subsequently disappeared. I plead insanity, because they were so good, it was insane.
They've been doing this for fifty years, so it's no wonder they got this. Check them out at their website or on Facebook.
I received products for testing and review purposes. My opinions and lack of guilt over cookie hoarding are my own.
