Two new cookies have hit shelves: Trader Joe's Georgia Pecan Butterscotch Chip Cookies and the Benne Wafer Cookies. Yes, this has been the year of the snack food. Now despite the words "Georgia" and the color of the bag, there is no peach in this. Nope, just straight up pecan and butterscotch.
And yes, we totally need some peach flavored things. Just putting that out there.
Now, despite the way the packaging might have you feel or imagine what they taste like, these are teeny tiny cookies.
Like really small cookies.
I got excited when I turned the bag over and was like "10 cookies per serving? Heck yeah!"
But then, out of the bag, they are about nickel sized. So don't get too excited. It would probably take about 4 cookies to equal the size of one regular sized cookie.
Despite the tiny size, there is another subtle complaint here. I know Trader Joe's said they were cutting back on plastic packaging, but there is yet another plastic bag in this paper bag. Yup, it is double bagged.
But despite those minor complaints here are some tasty little cookies.
These aren't as sweet as some cookies. To me they were more on the salty side (but not quite as salty as the Benne Wafer Cookies).
There is a good amount of the salt paired with the nuttiness here. And the cookies are tiny, flat, and therefore very crisp. They are quite thin and the butterscotch acts as a sweet contrast to the saltiness.
Overall, given how many sweets Trader Joe's has hit us with, this is a pleasant contrast. It isn't cloyingly sweet.
For $3.29 it is also priced a bit higher than I would have liked to see for a bag this size that isn't organic.
Would I buy this again? Trader Joe's Georgia Pecan Butterscotch Chip Cookies weren't bad. They just weren't my favorite either. I wouldn't repurchase these.
