Okay, so we don’t have a cookie jar, but if we did it would be overflowing. Unintentionally, we went on a cookie adventure of sorts these past couple of months. It was all kicked off by hubby ordering cookies from PDX Cookie Co.
It was Valentine’s, he knows I (we) love cookies so it was super sweet and so were the cookies 😉
After ordering cookies from 4 different companies I thought it would be fun to come and share with your our favorites and lesser favorites.
PDX cookies were incredible-straight from the tupperware container they were send in they were super good. Warmed up even better! honestly could not tell you which flavors we had because hubby ordered them. There were 12 cookies, 2 of each flavor and was about $47 after tax and shipping. Despite being filled with candies, cookies, and other goodies the cookie base was still delicious. The texture had crunchy edges and a soft and chewy interior. I know I preferred the chocolatey and peanut buttery ones, but the hubby did love the pink ones filled with frosted animal cookies and other deliciousness.
After reading a cookie box review online I ordered Bang Cookies. The writer of that review said that the salted chocolate chip cookies at Bang were better than Levain’s. I ordered 2 salted chocolate chip, PBJ, kitchen sink, white chocolate mac, and double chocolate. This was definitely the best in terms of pricing. At the time if you got 6 cookies you got free shipping. I paid the least for Bang Cookies out of the companies we tried-I believe the total was $27 or $28. In terms of taste, I have not had Levain yet, but these salted chocolate chip cookies were incredible. They were chewy and melty (we warmed them in the microwave) and incredible! All the cookies were amazing, but the chocolate chip were my hands down winner!
I ordered Big Fat Cookie after reading the same review page. These were the #1 best cookies on her page. Price wise these were around $32 after shipping and tax. These cookies were big and fat and filled with all the goods. I ordered Nuckin’ Futz which all had peanut butter of some sorts whether through reeses or pb chips. There were 4 cookies in a pack and they were heavy 6oz cookies. These were good, but I don’t think these were the best. It’s a cookie (good) filled with delicious candies and chocolates (good), but I didn’t have that eye roll to the back of my head moment with these. Maybe I’m crazy?
The last cookie company we tried was Fat and Weird Cookie Co. These may have been the most expensive per cookie, but we were intrigued. If you’re curious they were around $25 for 3 cookies. I know hubby had a hard time even being able to order because they would sell out so quickly! Needless to say we felt pretty accomplished when we finally placed an order!
When the cookies came I will not lie we were a little disappointed by the size. I’m not sure if you can tell, but these were the smallest cookies of the four. In terms of taste they were subpar even if you don’t take price into consideration. When you do consider price these were a fail!
If you were to try any of these cookie companies I would recommend PDX and/or Bang. I thought they were equally delicious in different ways. PDX had interesting mix-ins and were a nice chewy, fat cookie. Bang cookies felt like a classic cookie in terms of appearance (still chewy and thick) and taste. In terms of pricing I do think it’s an experience situation and not every week/month type thing. I also think these would be great gifts if you know a cookie lover!
Let me know if you guys have ever tried any of these cookies and what you thought OR if you’ve had other cookies shipped to you which ones you love.
