      Disappointed overall, will be going for standard choc-chip in future!

      I have to admit I was rather surprised by all the four and five star ratings of this product as I was rather disappointed with them, this is why I felt the need to throw my two-pennies worth into the mix.

      As far as the cookie goes it's an acceptable product, flavour, size, consistency and price are all ok... but then the unique selling point is the Smarties here and that's where it falls down.

      Maybe it's just the pack I got but I found that I could hardly taste them and would much rather have had some standard chocolate chips or chunks in there. On top of that all of the colour had bled out of the Smartie shells onto the cookie leaving them looking a pale and washed out imitation of their former selves and the cookie itself all manner of disturbing colours.

      Unless you are trying to particularly impress the children with these themed cookies I would suggest opting for their standard, non-Cadbury's endorsed cousins instead.

        A great cookie from nestle.

        Calories : 220
        Protein : 2.3g
        Carbohydrates : 32.7g
        Fat : 9.0g
        Fibre : 0.8g
        Sodium : 0.1g
        Salt Equivalent : 0.4g

        I have put the nutritional content first because once you have tasted these, all those numbers will go out of the window! They are so more-ish that you really just won't care how many miles you will have to walk to burn those calories off.

        The bag contains 5 cookies with them costing £1 a bag. You won't fail to miss them in the bakery section of your local supermarket. I buy mine from Tesco. They have a lovely gooey texture with the smarties imprinted in them. The smarties are no longer have that hard consistency, they too have gone slightly softer. They have still retained their shape though.

        The cookies are the usual circular shape measuring roughly 10cm in diameter. They are a lovely golden colour and smell divine. They also have quite a long shelf life but I can guarantee that you won't be folding that bag over to save for later ~ they will be gone in no time.

        I absolutely adore these and could gladly eat the whole bag to myself. I thoroughly recommend that you give them a try as they aren't too expensive and a great treat.

          Nestle Smarties Cookies

          A few nights ago me and my mates decided that instead of getting really hammered we would have a film and munchies night. So earlier that day we all went shopping for those munchies and this was one of the things we ended up buying. I had tried these before but none of my mates had so I bought them straight away because I wanted everyone else to know how yummy they are. Now Im not really a big fan of Smarties as it goes, I eat them every now and again but they arent my first choice of chocolate by a long way - maybe its since they took the blue ones out hehe but these cookies really are delicious.

          These cookies come in a vivid blue packet and you get 5 in each pack. That will only cost you about a quid so thats great value I think as these cookies are pretty massive. A lot bigger than brands like Maryland and I would say each cookie is about the size of your hand. Inside the cookie you can see all the little multi-coloured smarties and they just look yummy. Luckily the taste just as good as they look.

          The surprising thing about these cookies is that they are mega chewy. Not in a sticky horrible way as I think these have a really nice consistency not like them rock hard cookies that nearly break your teeth when you eat them. I reckon the chewiness is down to syrup or something because these are really quite sweet which obviously means after a while they start to taste a little bit sickly. The smarties in the cookie gives them a really nice chocolatey taste not exactly like chocolate chips but very nice and in some ways these are actually a lot nicer. I reckon you need to try these for yourself to know how delicious they actually are because I cannot describe the taste any better than that and they taste way better than Im describing. All us girls loved them anyway and I will definately be buying them again.

          I cant find the exact nutritional values for these cookies but I dont think they are very good for you - whoever heard of a healthy cookie? But as a once in a while treat they shouldnt do any real harm. Also these may contain nuts so if your allergic it may be best to stay away.

          Thanks For Reading

            Try them yourself

            I love buying cakes from the bakery in supermarkets, and when i saw smarties were making cookies i had to give them a try. Costing only £1 for five good sized cookies, they seemed like a bargain!

            The packaging is just a small paper bag, it is dark blue in colour and has pictures of smarties all over it, there is Smarties written in the standard font that they use, and a viewing window on the front so you can have a sneak peak of what you are buying, the back of the bag has the list of ingredients plus nutritional information.

            When you open up the bag you are greeted by five cookies all lined up ready to be eaten, they are around 10cm in diameter, and you can clearly see all of the different colour smarties there. They are a lovely golden brown colour and smell delicious.

            The taste of these is as good as they look, they are delicious, they are quite chewy which i like, not like a cookie you would buy from supermarkets, you can bend these cookies before they will snap, they're not cruncy at all. They are not lacking any smarties, they're full of them!

            They are lovely and sweet and very moreish. When you compare the price of these to other cookie makers such as Millie's, you can see you're getting a bargain, a Millie's cookie is around 89pence, these ones work out at 20pence!

            I have managed to eat a full pack of these plenty of times before, which I do love doing, but doesn't please my girlfriend too much as she wants me to lose a few lbs!

            The nutritional values for these cookies are as follows, each cookie contains:
            Calories : 220
            Protein : 2.3g
            Carbohydrates : 32.7g
            Fat : 9.0g
            Fibre : 0.8g
            Sodium : 0.1g
            Salt Equivalent : 0.4g

            As you can see these are not the healthiest, and eating the full five is definitely not recommend. These should be stored in a cool dry place, usually you only have a few days before they go out of date, for me this isn't a problem, I can use it as an excuse to eat them all!

            To sum up, I would suggest you buy these and give them a try, for 20p a cookie they are a very nice treat!

              Bring back our old smartie cookies!

              I LOVE Smartie cookies, however the last couple of times I have tried them they have changed quite dramatically!

              It was the first time about a month ago I noticed this, I was used to them being slightly crunchy around the edges but soft and gooey when you bit into it and onlyto crunch by the smarties. However this time when I bit into it, it was very hard and crunchy all the way through as if they have been over cooked. This wasn't just a one off either as I bought a pack now (also they are smaller and instead of the 5 pack shown above they are now a 6 pack) yesterday and it was the same strange crunchiness to them which I just don't enjoy.

              The taste hasn't changed much and the cookie itself is still lovely and sweet and still has that lovely home made cookie smell to it. The crunchiness of the cookie may be to some peoples taste however I prefer it when it is soft and gooey and sort of smooth in the middle.

              The smarties are still in there and I am not sure whether it is due to the fact that they are smaller biscuits but there are noticibally less in there. They are all bashed up so it is very rare to find a whole one, also you don't seem to taste them in this new cookie as the sweetness of it seems to overpower the chocolatley taste!

              The smallness in size also makes you think another one and another one and another one and before you notice the pack is disapperaing in front off your eyes, even if you don't particuarlly like them, like me!

              I think these cost me earound 99p and can cost up to £1.25 however I won't be buying these again any time soon and shall go back to the good old Rolo ones! :D

              Tast, size and texture for me only gets a miserable 2/5 and all I can say is bring back our old smartie cookies....please?

              This review is also on CIAO :)

                Delish Cookies, One Of The Best!

                I love these Smarties Cookies and know as soon as I buy a pack that I'll probably eat at least 3 out of the 5 you get in each bag, and that's deffo not fair because there are 5 of us in our house so by rights we should all have 1 each! lol

                They're those fresh baked cookies that are sold in the bakery section, they come in a paper bag that is folded over and sealed with a sticker. You can see the cookies through a plastic window in the box and they look yummy, I can't EVER resist buying a bag if I see them and some days I deliberately don't go near the bakery section because I don't want to waste a billion calories!

                The cookies are quite big and thick so they're mega filling, they're sweet and taste of syrup too so the cookies do get sickly quite quick. They've got a bit of a stickey texture, these aren't the sort of biscuits that actually FEEL sticky to touch but as you're eating them the deffo do taste sticky and like there is treacle or something in them.

                They're nice and soft with a delish flavour, they taste like any other cookie and would deffo be average if it wasn't for the Smarties inside them. It depends on what supermarket you go to but some of them sell these cookies with whole Smarties in and others have got big chopped up pieces of Smarties inside the cookies. There's always loads of Smarties in each cookie and that gives them a lovely crunchy texture that goes proper nice with the soft cookies.

                The Smarties also give the cookies a nice chocolate flavour, it's not strong so this doesn't taste like a chocolate chip cookie but you can deffo taste the Smarties big time in the biscuits.

                5 cookies costs about £1.00 and they're well worth it I reckon, they're so yummy and sweet that they taste like a mad treat even though they're not that expensive.

                Recommended.... delish!!!

                  The best cookies in the world!

                  When I'm in a supermarket and wanting to treat myself it's always a toss-up between cookies and doughnuts. What's usually the deciding factor in this decision is whether or not the supermarket in question is selling Smarite cookies. If they are, then it's no contest; the cookies win everytime. And here's why:

                  Prices vary slightly depending on which supermarket you go to, but on average they are just over £1 for a pack of five. What I like about these cookies is that they are always very soft, unlike the supermarket-own brands which can sometimes be hard as a rock. Smartie cookies are also a fair bit larger than the supermarket cookies, however the downside of this is that sometimes it can be a challenge to finish each cookie as they can be quite filling.

                  The cookie part of this snack doesn't taste too different from any other cookie I've tried, other than being a bit softer. It's very sweet, perfect for those with a sweet tooth, although it may be a bit too sickly for some. The Smarties themselves are liberally sprinkled throughout the cookie ,and it may just be my imagination, but I swear they are a tad bigger than the Smarties you get out of a tube. Because of this high concentration of Smarties, from each bite of the cookie you will get a lovely soft piece of sugary sweet cookie juxtaposed brilliantly with the rich crunchy chocolate of Nestle Smarties. As with a normal tube of Smarties, there are a variety of different flavour, my favourite being the orange Smartie as its tangy flavour really does complement the cookie very well. My mouth is starting to water just thinking about it!

                  The only real downside to these cookies is the extremely short use-by date. These cookies tend to last for only a couple of days. As these cookies are so big and filling it is quite a challenge to eat them all before they go off. Still, if anyone is struggling to eat them all, just give me a call and I'll happily pop round and give you a hand!

                  For those watching their weight, these cookies are obviously not going to be your friends. Per cookie, the nutritional information is as follows:

                  Calories : 220
                  Protein : 2.3g
                  Carbohydrates : 32.7g
                  Fat : 9.0g
                  Fibre : 0.8g
                  Sodium : 0.1g
                  Salt Equivalent : 0.4g

                  Because of the high calorie content, these cookies are really designed to just be a treat every so often. Unfortunately they are extremely addictive so willpower is required to eat them in moderation!

                  great cookies

                  Smarties cookies are a fantastic product made by nestle and which are sold in most big supermarkets as well as some of the smaller supermarket chains too. They are basically like those really big soft nice cookies you can get freshly baked from supermarkets however these have smarties in as well so they taste even better.

                  The cookie itself is pretty big, maybe just a tad bit smaller than the other home brand cookies you get in a pack of five however these do have smarties in as well and these are nestle so ill let them off there. The cookie does taste fantastic though, it is just a plain cookie which I do like and they are usually very soft, the edges are a bit hard though sometimes and so I usually bit off all the edges so I'm soon left with the soft centre middle which is the nicest part.

                  These also have smarties on, these are kind of mixed into the cookies and some are whole and some broken but you do get a fair amount of smarties in each cookie too. I also like how when they have been baked in the colours have ran a little bit into the cookie and it makes the cookie look great.

                  These are about £1.20 usually for a pack of 5 cookies which isn't bad at all, however a little bit more expensive than the home brand ones at most supermarket, but they do taste great, look great and they are nestle so there not too expensive at all and are well worth the money.

                    Give them a try

                    I first spotted these when walking through the baker aisle in ASDA. Being a fan of cookies and of smarties (before they did something which completely ruined the taste) I had to try these.

                    ~~~ Packaging ~~~

                    The packaging is what first attracted me to them. As you can see from the photo above, the main colour is dark blue, with smarties covered all over. The big bubble writing was the thing that really caught my attention.

                    ~~~ Taste ~~~

                    These cookies are delicious. The cookie itself is quite soft and gets softer the closer it gets to the 'best before date'. This is complimented nicely by the larger than usual chunky smarties, which add a nice crunch. The overwhelming taste is that of the smartie and therefore chocolate, but the cookie makes it so much better than simply just eating smarties.

                    ~~~ Nutrional Info (per cookie) ~~~

                    Calories : 220
                    Protein : 2.3g
                    Carbohydrates : 32.7g
                    Fat : 9.0g
                    Fibre : 0.8g
                    Sodium : 0.1g
                    Salt Equivalent : 0.4g

                    ~~~ Overall ~~~

                    These are really tasty cookies and I would recommend trying them if you haven't already. I could easily go through a whole pack (5 cookies) in one go, but try to limit myself to a maximum of 2 in one go. At £1 for 5 cookies, this is a great deal.
