Pepperidge Farm got cooking in their factory, something new for all, and it’s the Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies. With a nice seasonal burst of flavors, these cookies are an excellent addition for the Mother’s Day dessert serving. They definitely have a grown-up feel to them and oh so heavenly!
These limited edition cookies are currently available at Walmart for the price of $3.49 for a pack of 8. To some it might not suffice but considering the fact that its wheat based with a calorie count of 140, most will stay happy binging on one pack of these little delights.
About Pepperidge Farm
Started by Margaret Rudkin, way back before the two world wars, Pepperidge Farm was the culmination of homemade recipes and an exceptional baking ability of Margaret. Her tiny production unit soon grew in size and today makes a wide assortment of breads, cookies, pastries and other delights. They retail in the largest supermarkets and grocery stores with a decent and competitive price tag. Majority of their products now are sold as ready-to-eat items.
The Taste Profile
Now don’t be fooled by the pictures on the packaging for Pepperidge Farm Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies because you aren’t going to find a perfectly baked cookie. However, what you will find is a hint of homemade flavors from the recipe, must like grandma’s freshly homemade cookies. They are not hard cookies at all and in fact, sooooo soft and pliable with a fresh tasting and super moist texture. The softness is a welcome relief from the world of hard crunchy cookies and with creamy cheesecake bursting forth in chunks with strawberry flavored ribbons all over, they are not one of those one-dimensional tasting cookies.
Great on their own, or savored along with coffee or juice, these delicious treats are a welcome addition to the festive seasons coming up. Just remember that these are wheat treats so keep them on the low if you are controlling your diet. And while I call them a cookie for grownups, I know kids would devour them in seconds!
