Maryland Cookies fall under the ownership of Burton Foods (Jammy Dodgers, Viscount etc).
Here we have the Maryland Double Chocolate Chip Cookies. You can also buy the normal cookies as well. They are described as being "Chocolate Flavoured Cookies contains Chocolate Chips". Try saying that fast!
Each flavour of Maryland Cookies adopts its own colour theme so they can be recognised easily. The double chocolate ones come a purple foil wrapper.
The front of the wrapper is adorned with large yellow bubble writing saying "Maryland" with smaller writing saying "Double Choc". Some delightful cookie images also are shown to give you an idea of the contents within the pack.
Further around the back has your standard, required information including ingredients, allergy warnings, nutrition and details of how to contact Burton Foods.
Opening the pack, you are greeted with a biscuit aroma. The cookies themselves are round quite thick. They cookie is made from chocolate and is therefore a dark brown and contains plenty of almost black chocolate pieces throughout it. The underside of the cookie is smooth and bumpy on the top.

I have never been one for cookies that contain milk chocolate. Give me white chocolate or toffee any day but I am a bit weird when it comes to milk chocolate that isn't Cadbury or Mars.
I first tried normal Maryland cookies when my fiance bought them a few years ago and reallt enjoyed them. In B&Ms the other day, I picked up a pack of these Double Choc cookies for hubby at 39p and thought I would sneak a few since he is at work and I am not feeling my best today :(
Anyway, the cookies are kept nice and fresh in the foil pack meaning they won't lose their crunch. They are of a good size and thickness and you can clearly see lots of little chocolate chips floating around. They smell very strongly of rich chocolate as you would expect as you are combined 2 chocolate products together in one.
Biting into the cookie (whilst making a terrible mess with crumbs), you get a good crunch noise signally freshness. The cookies is quite light and disolves easily in your mouth. It also melts easily and makes your hands sticky! The strongest taste for me was the chips, they were overly sweet and too rich in my opinion. The cookie was ok, it wasn't dry but it wasn't exactly tasty and left a weird sort of artificial after taste in my mouth which I needed a drink to wash away.
I feel unless you are a massive double choc fan then these are worth avoiding and downgrading to the normal cookies as the biscuit and chips compliment each other better without going into chocolate overdrive.
I ate 2 of these and forced myself to eat a 3rd to make sure it wasn't just my tastebuds trying to get use to them. They just don't taste very nice so hubby can keep them. I feel even more sick than I did to begin with.
Thanks for reading
