Review: Papa John's - Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie

Papa John's Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie is a 8-inch, family-sized cookie 'pizza' cut into 8 slices for sharing.

I picked one up for $5.

While it may be a mega-sized cookie, it's more of a mini-sized cookie pizza and comes in just slightly larger than a personal pizza. Each slice is the equivalent of a standard-sized chocolate chip cookie so it comes out to two cookies per person for a family of four, which sounds about right as far as servings go.

The Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie is very similar to a Pizookie from BJ's Brewhouse and similar offerings at some other casual dining restaurants. It's baked to order and was piping hot with a nice, crispy surface crust throughout.

Like a pizza, the edges are more cooked through and crispy while the center is moist and almost gummy (but not raw). The cookie was a little bit on the greasy side.

There were plenty of milk chocolate chips and they melted really well. With all the chocolate chips, the Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie falls on the 'too sweet' side of things. I would suggest eating these with milk or ice cream.
Overall, Papa John's Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie was pretty good if a little sweet. It tasted a lot like pre-made Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chips cookies right out of the oven. The $5 price point hardly seems a bargain though since you can get three cookies from McDonald's or Subway for around $1 (and most Subway stores will toast them up for the same fresh-baked feel).
