Review: Arby's - Salted Caramel & Chocolate Chip Cookie and Triple Chocolate Cookie

Arby's Salted Caramel & Chocolate Chip Cookie and Triple Chocolate Cookie are new dessert options on the menu made with Ghiradelli chocolate and come served warm.

I paid $1.49 per cookie.

These turned out rather nicely. They were hot and crispy on the outside but soft and gooey inside without feeling undercooked. The crags and cracks in the surface of the cookies meant that I got a mixture of both crispy and moist in most bites. There was also a generous smattering of good-sized chocolate chips throughout for that creamy and thoroughly melted chocolaty richness.

A lot of the quality is lost once they cool down though, as they start to harden and dry.

Of the two, I preferred the Triple Chocolate Cookie for a deep chocolaty flavor throughout that was enhanced whenever I came across a chocolate chip. The Salted Caramel & Chocolate Chip Cookie had its own draw with the chewy caramel but was just a touch too heavy with sea salt. Maybe salt flakes would have been better than granules.

Overall, Arby's Salted Caramel & Chocolate Chip Cookie and Triple Chocolate Cookie hit the right notes while offering a fresh-from-the-oven experience due to the warming. They're a big step up from the current fast food cookie landscape with a small price premium (the Arby's cookie is bigger but you can get more cookies at McDonald's or Subway for the around the same amount).
