Review: Pepperidge Farm Strawberry Milano Cookies

Taste Test: Strawberry Milano Cookies

It's impossible for me to stop through the cookie aisle at the supermarket without stalling for at least a minute to gaze longingly at the enticing assortment of Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies. Both my guy and I have a serious weakness for the Double Chocolate and the Mint — after all, we even went to such lengths as to make our own version at home. So the world stopped for just a split second when we received a shipment of the brand's latest flavor, strawberry. The flavor combination sounded wildly delicious and almost too good to be true. Was it? Find out when you read more.

I really, truly wanted to like these, but alas, Strawberry Milanos and I weren't meant to be. Although they have the familiar dark chocolate flavor and crisp cookie of the original, sandwiched between the two is a waxy, artificial layer that bore little semblance to any fruit that comes from nature. Minutes later, my mouth was coated with the unpleasant chemical aftertaste of fake strawberry shortcake, and worse yet, my stomach hurt. I'd have been better off dipping Original Milanos in homemade strawberry jam.

Have you tried these? Did you come to the same conclusion: that they disappoint?

I love that you review "mainstream" foods like this and the new Domino's pizza, they're some of my favorite posts.

Yeah I'm sticking to the original dark chocolate. They were disappointing. I should've known by the waxy, bright pink layer in the picture. :(

I agree Sandle, they HAD potential. I brought the cookies expecting greatness and was highly disappointed. I'm going to need Pepperidge Farm to try again.
