Safeway Chocolate Candy Cookies

Some of my favorite cookies come, surprisingly, not from any boutique bakery or fancy candy shop, but from the bakery department at supermarket chains. Take the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies from Giant.They are not big enough to warrant a Giant Cookie Review, but they are delicious beyond measure.

Recently, I discovered to my delight, that Safeway produces another of these delectable gems, at an even better price and a size (just barely) worthy of being called giant!

They are, as Safeway's label so eloquently describes them, "Cookies jumbo sugar," but they actually have a secret ingredient—M&M's! (or at least, the generic equivalent.)

Now, M&M's alone are not enough to make a cookie good, but combined with a decadent chewy texture and an almost unbelievable price, they are the glorious ingredient that makes good into amazing!

If you can't tell, I love these cookies! They might only be improved if they were a tad less sweet.

The price I mentioned is 5 dollars for a dozen, a dozen being 850 grams, and that means .59¢ per gram. Point five nine! By far the cheapest Giant Cookie around, and for their level of yumminess, definitely worth every .1 penny! I understand that the 5 dollar package was a special price, but even if the original price was double that, it would still be reasonable, for a giant cookie.

Win, win, win!

The Bottom Line:
Taste: 4 stars
Texture: 5 stars
Price: 5 stars
