Of the countless comfort foods out there, nothing beats a chocolate chip cookie. Whether dunked in a glass of milk, paired with ice cream, or enjoyed straight out of the oven, the classic dessert knows how to satisfy and keep people coming back for seconds, thirds, quarters, and more.
This certainly turned out to be the case with a variety of chocolate chip cookies sold at Costco. In a recent thread on Reddit, one user shared a photo of Kirkland Signature’s Thin Crispy Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies, captioning the post, “I made a huge mistake buying the chocolate chip cookies. of fine and crispy chocolates from KS. I was reminded of my lack of self-control.” The thread has since racked up over 200 comments, with many Reddit users spouting the tidbit.
“I’m pretty sure I finished this whole bag in a day the last time I bought these. Never again,” wrote one Redditor. Another user added: “These are so good, they’re dupes of Tate”, referring to the famous Hampton-based brand of baked goods known for their thin and crispy chocolate chip cookies. A few other Reddit users pointed to the Tate comparison in their comments, with one person concluding that Costco chocolate chip cookies still reign supreme.
Meanwhile, some users have weighed in on how Kirkland Confectionery compares to the Famous Amos brand of chocolate chip cookies. One person said Costco cookies are “10000 times better,” while another commented, “…These are so much better!! And I love that they don’t feel “heavy”; the finesse and size are just perfect!”
For an added twist on the sweet snack, a handful of users even suggested eating the chocolate chip cookies like cereal by putting them in a bowl of milk.
Kirkland Signature’s thin and crispy mini chocolate chip cookies aren’t the only items at Costco shoppers have been cheering. On Feb. 4, Instagram user @costcohotfinds spotted Eastern Standard Provisions’ artisanal soft pretzels at a Costco warehouse in the San Francisco Bay Area. Priced at $11.99 and available in select locations, the boxes feature three types of pretzels and three filling options, prompting many Instagrammers to express their fondness for the product and price.
