I live with four chocolate addicts, my husband being the biggest one in the house. He was beyond excited when two boxes of The Truly Awesome Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies showed up on our doorstep. Normally he wouldn't want to try a store brand cookie since he's convinced that they are not as good as a national brand. But he agreed to try these with an open mind.
The Truly Awesome line is a Kroger store brand that hit shelves earlier this year. You may not have a Kroger near you, but you probably have one of their stores. In Las Vegas, Smiths is owned by Kroger. The Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with real ingredients, just like a homemade cookie. And unlike many store bought cookies, they are not made with added preservatives or artificial flavors. The cookies come in packs of 8 with a SRP of $2.79.
Brett and the kids love these cookies! He compared them to Famous Amos cookies in taste and texture. The kids loved how gigantic the cookies were since they only get one. Now they can get one cookie that is 2 times the size of a normal chocolate chip cookie. We took a box to our church group meeting for dessert and the adults really liked them. (If you're wondering about the kids, we didn't share them with the kids, we kept them to ourselves.)They were surprised that they were a store brand since they tasted so good.
The Truly Awesome line of food has more than just cookies. You can also buy low fat yogurt tubes, low fat yogurt cups, macaroni and cheese, and frozen broccoli and cheese. These products are available now with more products coming soon. Head on over to your local Kroger store and check them out for yourself!
