Mac the Chip Cookies

Mac the Chip Cookies

Had one of these cookies today at California Tea & Coffee in Temecula, CA.

These are touted as vegan cookies. I guess that means it has no egg ingredient.

This has chocolate chips. So I suppose it's some kind of milk free chocolate.

It's good. It's very sweet and has a buttery body to it, even though it's all non-dairy. But it still has a funny taste in the background. I'll stick to "real" cookies, but these are pretty good.

They are made by Alternative Baking Company, Inc. Visit their website: http://www.alternativebaking.com

Doodles Organic Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix

doodles cookiesDoodles Cookies is a new brand of cookies focusing on cookie lovers who want to snack on organic ingredients. They're sole offering at this point is an organic chocolate chip cookie mix.

However, they're getting set to launch a gluten-free sugar cookie mix next month.

Deborah Sievers, owner of Doodles Cookies, is an avid cook who first got the idea for marketing her cookie mix after winning two awards from Chile Pepper magazine for an original chocolate chip cookie recipe. She used only organic products in her chocolate chip cookie mix in order to appeal to the growing population of organic food buyers...

"I had been looking for a healthy, good-tasting alternative cookie to make for family and friends. My goal was to make an organic cookie that was healthy and also delicious."

The new gluten-free sugar cookie that she's coming out with next month is her entry into growing market of hypoallergenic foods.

The Organic Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix is currently available on the company's web site:

EatRite BeFit - Candies

Sorbee International Limited, is launching a new line of sugar-free products called, "EatRite BeFit".

These consist of syrups, cookies, and chocolates, all sweetened with Splenda.

EatRite BeFit
I've always been amazed at how companies can market junk food and convince you that you're doing something good for yourself. Imagine your mom handing you a bag of sugar-free chocolate and saying "Here junior, now you're eating right, and being fit".

Not that I want them to stop, I find humor in it. I understand that sugar-free candies have fewer calories than sugar candies, and are tolerable to diabetics. They do have their place. But do we need to be told that we're "eating right and being fit"?

I can't help seeing Jack-in-the-Box removing the cheese from their cheeseburger and calling it a healthy alternative for lactose-intolerant people.

Nestle Christmas Tree Cookies

While Christmas has passed us by, I couldn't help noticing this package of Nestle Christmas Tree Cookies.

Nestle Christmas Tree Cookies
Doesn't the font in the words "Christmas Trees" look strangely similar to a Dr. Seuss book?

I'm guessing someone at Nestle's package design department is on to something.

Midwest Airlines Chocolate Chip Cookies

Midwest Airlines is now offering its famous chocolate chip cookies for retail in the form of ready-to-bake cookie dough.

Midwest Airlines Chocolate Chip Cookies
The company, which flies it's jetliners across the heartland of America, offers its passengers free chocolate chip cookies, which are baked during the flight. The cookies are very popular with passengers, and demands for the company's secret recipe have escalated. Instead, Midwest Airlines is offering the next best thing, by selling its cookie dough.

The cookie dough is only available at Milwaukee-area, Balistreri-owned and -operated Sendik's Food Markets. If you don't happen to live within driving distance to Milwaukee, well hopefully Midwest Airlines will distribute them to other stores.

Midwest Airlines is based in Milwaukee, which kinda explains that.

The chocolate chip cookie is a pretty serious issue with Midwest Airlines, check out their website, "Save the Cookie".

I'm not for certain, but I think Midwest Airlines may be the first air carrier to launch its food for retail.

Stix in the Mud

Funley's Stix in the MudStix in the Mud is the flagship product of Los Angeles, CA-based Funley's Delicious.

They describe them as a "sweet and salty clusters of savory cookie bits smothered in chocolate". Imagine tiny crunchy cookie bits, drowned in balls of chocolate, similar to like a Nestle Crunch, but in ball form.

The Original variety is actually made with a mixture of milk chocolate and dark chocolate. The Peanut Butter and Caramel varieties are just milk chocolate.

The product's website says the creator of Stix in the Mud got the idea after walking into a puddle of mud and dropping a load of sticks. Doubt that it's true, but it works.

Stix in the Mud cannot be purchased online.

Snack 'n Seal Packaging for Junk Food

Nabisco is now offering their Oreo Cookies in this new "Snack 'n Seal" packaging.

Oreo Cookies Snack n Seal packaging
Once used largely for moist-towelettes, this type of resealable packaging is making its way into the snack food industry. It'll probably work out great for junk stuff like Oreos that don't have to be sealed and refrigerated.

Pepperidge Farms 100 Calorie Packs

Pepperidge Farms has introduced new 100 Calorie packaging of their famliar cookies.

The Chessemen Butter Cookies are small shortbread style cookies with shapes of chess pieces on them.

The new packaging has 5 individually sealed packages with .71 ounce servings of the cookies (100 calories).

As a reference, an ordinary package of (the full-sized) Chessmen cookies is 7.5 ounces. For those who can't seem to eat .71 ounces from an unmoderated bag, Pepperidge Farms has solved the problem. Even if you fall off the wagon and eat all five package in the box, you're still only getting 500 calories, where you'd be getting over 1,000 in a regular bag. (Most likely at the same price.)

For more on the new trend in portion control packaging see the New York Times this week: In Smaller Packages, Fewer Calories and More Profit (basically, buy yourself a box of baggies and a calculator and save yourself a LOT of money).
