“ Brand: Maryland / Type: Biscuits „
We often have some cookies and Biscuits in the house. Although it is normally full sized packs we get, the wife often gets little mini bags sometimes but only when they are on offer. Since the mini packs are normally a lot more expensive than the full sized ones then I don't really think they are worth the normal price.
We got these from Tesco. They were selling for £1.43 for the multipack of 6 bags or 2 packs for £2, so £1 a pack is a bit better. The offer covered other mini bags, so you could mix and match.
The bags were obviously individual bags within a larger bag. The pack was alright. A red colour with a nice picture of a few mini Cookies on the front. Upon opening the pack I saw that there wasn't many Cookies in here. They were about the size of a £2 coin and slightly rounded on top.
These were nice and crunchy. They had a good enough scattering of Chocolate Chips through them and tasted nice and sweet enough.
Per bag these had 140 calories, and I could probably eat 3 bags in a row since you don't get many in here.
These were tasty enough. and just really Mini versions of the full sized ones, so nothing really different. I would have these again as they are handy to pop in your bag and take out with you, but for the amount of grams you get for the money then it isn't really worth it.
I really love cookies, but find that the brand does seem to make the difference as I really don't like the smart price cookies you get, although I really like the cookies from the brand. So therefore I've had Maryland cookies a lot in the past, and when I was in Asda the other day I spotted these and put them in the trolley for something new to have.
The big bag contains six smaller bags of cookies, and they really are quite small bags since each one fits just six mini cookies! The branding continues with this product as the packaging has all the same colours and logos as it does on the normal cookies, and these bright red bags do their job fine as long as you take care, throwing them in the bottom of your bag and bashing them round all day often results in lots of crumbs! They are quite similar to the normal Maryland cookies, although I feel that they don't taste exactly the same but its something you shouldn't notice too much. Although its not the best snack if you want something filling, their size is also a plus in some ways as sometimes when I get a few biscuits out of the packet, I find myself going back for more and getting addicted so this limits how much you can eat!
They were on offer,£1.00 for a bag of six bags of cookies which works out at about 15p per bag, which isn't bad when you think about the convenience, although you often get packets of the normal sized biscuits on offer for just 50p so only buy them for pack lunches as its just not worth it if your just going to sit in the house with them. Get them from Asda to have a change in your pack lunch or picnic.
I love cookies, especially chocolate chip ones! And I've always lovesd Maryland cookies. For me though, an entire packet of the normal sized ones always end up goign stale before I can munch my way throguh the entire packet; much to my dismay! I also find that I end up eating far more then I should if I know there's an entire packet open and they will go stale if I don't eat them! These, are therefore, a perfect alternative.
Maryland Minis are exactly the same as their bigger brother! Everything about them is identical, except of course the sizer! The taste, texture and shape remain the same. If you haven't tasted a Maryland chocolate chip cookie before though, let me go through them with you.
Maryland cookies have a crunchy texture when you bite into then, and if you break them apart you can hear them snap and crumbs end up dropping all over you! This is the sign of a good, tasty, well made cookie! The chocolate chips are the perfect chocolateyness and there are a lot in each cookie! They are round with a rough surface (probably due to the chocolate chips in them!). Basically, they are scrummy and utterly divine cookies!
Typically a multi bag of six bags of Maryland Minis costs around the £1.30 mark. I've even seen them in places like Poundland, so you really can get a bargain on them! They are well worth the money in my opnion, though if I'm having a day where I can't control myself, I probably should've just gone for the normal packet sized ones! They're perfect for lunch boxes, snacks and I even take them to the cinema with me!
The calorie content, I believe is 152 per 30g bag. I don;t think this is too bad, and you can easily fit it in as a snack within your daily calorie allowance. You could probably easily fit a couple in (I regularly do, regardless of whether they stay within my calorie allowance or not!).
I love these cookies, and I know a lot of people who do. Infact, who doesn;t love Maryland cookies??
As far as shop bought cookies go - in my opinion, these are the best. Don't get me wrong, your never going to get anything in a foil bag that compares to something like Millies cookies - but these make a nice treat sized alternative.
You can buy Maryland cookies in the biscuit aisle, in your average biscuit
sized packet, but I much prefer these mini ones.
They come in a bright red bag with bright yellow writing on the front
saying Maryland Minis and pictures of cookies. Inside, you find smaller
(but pretty much identical) bags.
Inside the bags is a nice handful of mini chocolate chip cookies (each
about the size of a 50p piece). The biscuits themselves have a nice vanilla
taste and are really crumbly and crunchy, whilst the chocolate chips are
really chunky and creamy. Very tasty! I like these because I feel you get a
nice amount to satisfy you appetite, and the size of the cookie is a lot
easier to eat - you can just pop them into your mouth whole, without
getting the bitty crumbs that you get when you have to bite them in half.
Plus, if you have children you can hand them the bag and know exactly how much they've eaten.
I mix them in with vanilla ice cream for the ultimate in choc chip treats!
They don't contain any hydrogenated fat or oils, contain no artificial
colours or flavours, have no GM ingredients and are suitable for
Nutrition wise - there are 126 calories per bag and 6.4g of fat. Which
isn't great considering the size of the bag, but works well in a calorie
controlled diet because you know exactly how much you are eating.
Price wise - they are amazing! They cost 89p per packet in Home Bargains and usually 99p everywhere else. Bargain!
Always a handy treat to have in for the kids (and yourself)!!
In the pound shop they are selling loads of different types of mini biscuit at the minute and my faves are the Maryland Mini Cookies because they are yummy and the cute size makes them even better than the big ones!
The biscuits are quite soft and crumbly, they haven't got much of a crunch and are a perfect texture for a cookie I reckon. There are loads of mini chocolate chips in each one and they make the biscuits taste a bit more chocolatey than normal because there's more chocolate to biscuit in these mini ones. The biscuit has got a proper nice flavour and is sweet with an obvious cookie flavour.
The cookies melt in your mouth and are dead tasty. I tried dipping one in my coffee and they soak the coffee up nice and that melts the chocolate chips, you have to watch you don't burn your fingers though because they're so small the steam from my coffee copped my fingers last night and it was proper sore for ages!
You get about 12 mini cookies in each bag and one bag is just right for a biccie fix. They're not sickly because they're not madly sweet but they are quite heavy to eat so you know when you've had enough of them, they're just right for taking in a packed lunch or for a munch in front of the tv. I just wish they'd bring the minis out with the nuts in because they would be even yummier!
I love these Maryland cookies and finding these mini ones is brill because I didn't know they even made them. Biscuits can get a bit boring so it's wicked that the big companies are bringing these bags of minis out because they are a wicked change and feel loads more special than grabbing a couple of Marylands out of the biscuit tin.
Whoever came up with the idea to make mini versions of Maryland Chocolate Chip Cookies, and put them into individual bags inside a multipack must have been a genius. A multipack costs £1.33 in Tesco, which means that each little bag works out at 22p each. You can get these even cheaper in poundshops from time to time as well (£1 for the pack obviously).
The little foil bags are like thick crisp packets really, and they keep the contents fresh and safe during transit. So these are ideal for stuffing in your glove box or putting into a packed lunch. The portion size is quite generous really, with around three or four standard cookie's worth in each packet (about seven little ones).
They're an ideal size for peckish adults or hungry kids, and a lot better for a kid's lunchbox than chocolate bars or sweets - yet they taste just as good. The portion size is a little big for the grandson, 5, really. So when he has these, we tend to nick a couple out of the packet sneakily before handing it over (any excuse).
These mini versions taste every bit as good as the full size Maryland Cookies do. They're crunchy and cooked to perfection, and cram packed with lots of little chocolate chips too. They haven't used any less chocolate chips in these small ones than they do in the big ones, they've just scaled the size of the chips down to suit the size of the cookie.
Each 30g bag has 152 calories in it along with 7.2g of fat. Okay, so not the healthiest snack going, but at least they are filling and come with 1.9g of protein as well. If you're having these instead of a chocolate bar or gooey cake, then they're definitely a good addition to your lunch or snack list.
These are a great buy that represent very reasonable value for money. They're ideal for taking out and about, or grabbing as a quick tasty snack. They look cute and they taste great too - what more could you ask for from a packet of miniature cookies?
