If you have had the cookies that I talked about in my last post (Subway or Chewy Chips Ahoy), then you have probably noticed that I really like soft cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies. As a matter of fact, if my only option for a sweet treat is a hard cookie, then I will most likely pass on it. I’m not sure why this is, a lot of cookie lovers that I know love soft and hard cookies just the same. Unfortunately, I was not built that way. Having said all of this, I will say that there is one brand of hard cookies that I absolutely love, and it is one of the only hard cookies that I will eat. It is none other than…..(anticipation building)….(wait for it)… Peggy Lawton’s Choco-Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies!!! My cousin, who now owns a roofing business in Connecticut (www.westhartfordroofingservices.com), introduced me to these delicious cookies when we were very young and to this day, they are one of my favorite cookies.
Is it just New Englanders??
Maybe my affinity for Choco-Chip cookies comes from my upbringing in New England, I’m not sure, but I’m willing to be that people everywhere would love these cookies if they had a chance to try them. The fact that these cookies have remained popular for over 60 years is a true testament to their deliciousness. To be honest, I don’t think I have every met a person that did not like these cookies. It seems to be a sweet that everyone enjoys. If you have never tried them and you are not sure where to get them, I know that Amazon sells them.
The 3-Pack was Genius!!!
Whoever at Peggy Lawton’s decided to put these babies in a 3-pack was a genius. 1 or 2 may not be enough, and 4 might be too much, but 3?? 3 is the winning ticket!! Pure perfection!! Now, I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but I don’t think these cookies ever go bad. I’ve never looked for an expiration date, but I’ve also never had a stale Choco-Chip cookie either. So, you can grab a whole box of them without feeling pressured to eat them all in a week or two. However, if your house is anything like mine, there’s no way a box of those will make it through a week.
I hope everyone enjoyed this post, please come back tomorrow for some more cookie talk!!
