“To be honest, I’m not the sweet-toothed type, but when it comes to grabbing some sweets, it would be cookies for sure. Sometimes, I prefer baking my own to get my desired level of sweetness and softness. However, during lazy days, Mrs. Fields saves the day. I particularly enjoy eating my cookies bite-sized. Mrs. Fields’ Chocolate Chip Cookie Nibblers are my favorite for its soft and chewy texture.” – Alinea Hernandez, Beauty and Features Digital Content Writer
“Believe it or not, I can still clearly remember the day I first tasted Mo’ Cookies. My first bite of the classic chocolate chip cookie instantly gave me childhood nostalgia because of its crunchy crust and gooey center, which is how we always do our cookies at home. The best thing about this is it was definitely loaded with a lot of chocolates. So, I suggest that you make sure you have a glass of milk to dip your cookies into it for a complete experience.” — Daniel Reyes, Fashion Digital Content Writer
“I’m usually the one who opts to bake homemade cookies instead of buying from the common bakeshops. I’m quite specific with my cookie and I think finding the perfect one is a hit or miss. My idea of the perfect cookie is soft with rich chocolate chips inside. Twenty Four Bakeshop’s cookies hit the nail right in the head for me. The cookie is soft and the chocolate melts in your mouth. There’s also lots of flavors to choose from, but my top picks would be the Triple Chocolate or the classic Chocolate Chip! Pair it with a glass of milk and you’re good to go.” — Elyse Ilagan, Digital Features Editor
Going against the flow of cookie trends is the comeback of a childhood favorite: Famous Amos Cookies. My inner kid is screaming at the prospect, as he was crushed for a long while ever since they closed the stores in Manila. Crunchy, bite-sized, and by-the-bucket— these delectable creations are not your typical, cookie-cutter treat.

“While I’m no pastry snob (I have an unforgiving sweet tooth after all), it is almost impossibly hard to top the cookies that comes from my mother’s oven, which makes my standards when it comes to cookies very, very, very high. Having stuck my hand in many a cookie jar, I can with full confidence say that Aperitif’s Ooey Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies ranks way up my list–close to mom’s, of course–with it’s generous mound of a cookie, a mouth-watering half dome that comes with a bursting bite of melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chips that do not overwhelm the palate. Honestly, one is all you need, but who wants to have just it on the singular, right?” — Angelo Ramirez de Cartagena, Digital Content Editor
