Ben's Cookies

The famed English cookie company Ben's Cookies launched with much fanfare a few months ago. We were waiting for the hype to die down before sampling their wares, as the sole store at Wisma Atria still sports a long queue of customers. But, a friend brought over a whole bunch of their cookies for dessert one luncheon a couple of weeks ago, and we were forever hooked. The Hubs actually went out that very weekend to satisfy his cookie fix! The cookies truly lived up to the hype; delightfully chewy, crumbly, buttery, generously studded with chocolate chunks and nuts, and surprisingly cheap. Apparently, 7 huge cookie discs retail at only $14!

White Chocolate Chunk, laced with hunks of melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate. By the way, the cookies may seem that they come in semi-circlets, but it's only because the Hubs actually ate the other halves. He was halfway through them all before he'd realised I needed to take pictures of them!

My fave, Dark Chocolate and Nuts, speckled with walnuts and chocolate pieces.

Strictly for chocoholics, the Double Chocolate Chunk has a double dose of chocolate.

Unexpectedly, I didn't like the Peanut Butter as much as I did the ones with nuts. I suppose it's because I prefer my cookies traditional.

The White Chocolate and Macadamia, a smaller disc but higher mound so it looked a little like a mini bun of sorts, had plentiful macadamias. This took a joint first place with the Dark Choc and Nuts.

used to eat an extraordinary number of these in the UK - so delicious, and much better than mrs fields (which I believe was the main contender in the soft cookie market here).

must be the soft texture and generous chocolate!!
