Review: Nabisco: Dulce de Leche Chips Ahoy Cookies

Nabisco's Dulce de Leche Chips Ahoy cookies feature crispy Chips Ahoy cookies but with dulce de leche-flavored chips (in white and light brown) rather than chocolate ones. It's one of four new ice cream parlor-inspired flavors.

I paid $2.50 for a 9.5-oz package on sale.

Opening the bag released a powerful dulce de leche (creamy caramel) aroma.

The cookie portion itself seems crispier than a standard Chips Ahoy cookie; there's a more notable crunching sound when you bite into it.

The light brown (i.e. caramel-colored) chips look to be crunchy pieces of hardened caramel, while the white chips taste like plain white chocolate chips. The caramel has a nice salty, buttery flavor, while the white chocolate chips might be a little two sweet for some and add a touch of creaminess.

Overall, Dulce de Leche Chips Ahoy cookies were decently enjoyable. It veers a little bit to far into sweet tooth territory but tastes like a crispy, salted caramel white chocolate chip cookie. I found it best to nibble rather than take big bites out of as the white chocolate chips tend to covered up the other ingredients with their sweetness.
