Review: Nabisco - Mint Chocolate Chip Chewy Chips Ahoy Cookies

Mint Chocolate Chip Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies are one of four new Ice Cream Creations flavors for the popular chocolate chip cookie brand. It features a chewy chocolate cookie with chocolate chips and mint-flavored chunks.

A 9.5-ounce package was $2.50 on sale.

Seeing as it would probably not be marketable to make a pale green cookie with chocolate chips, Nabisco tried the reverse by making a chocolate cookie with pale green chunks. The chunks kinda look like bits of solidified toothpaste.

The cookie gives off a minty smell tinged with cocoa. Texture-wise, it feels almost like a brownie rather than a cookie. It's soft, moist, and fairly dense.

The chocolate cookie is only lightly chocolaty with an added boost once you hit across a chocolate chip. The mint chunks seem to be going for the standard mint ice cream flavor. It's a little light and doesn't stick around for very long. It's a pleasant enough flavor though.

Overall, Mint Chocolate Chip Chewy Chips Ahoy were just okay for me. While it delivers on hints of milk and chocolate, I think I wanted more intensity and found myself wishing for an Andes chocolate mint. If the baseline is a standard chocolate chip Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies, these are a little below that but nowhere near as bad as the Mocha Chunk flavor.
