Review: Starbucks - Frosted Snowman Cookie

Starbucks Frosted Snowman Cookie is a holiday offering and features a hand-decorated shortbread cookie shaped like a snowman and frosted with white icing and a milk chocolate hat.

I paid $2.25 for one.

The shortbread cookie portion was pretty lackluster; it wasn't very buttery and came off as dry and very crumbly. Mostly the cookie just served as a vehicle to deliver the frosting. It also buffered the sweetness of the icing a tad.

The frosting is a white chocolate icing that pretty much tasted like eating a creamy white chocolate bar until I got to the creamy milk chocolate hat, which had a surprising bittersweet note to it that isn't typical, but was very enjoyable.

Overall, the Frosted Snowman Cookie was a mixed bag. As much as I liked the frosting, the cookie itself was just so-so and the whole package falters a bit because of it. If you eat with the eyes though, the snowman design makes for a very pretty picture.
