Oh the dreaded store-bought box of cookies! Will putting them in a fancy black package inside a silver bag finally make me like something that I did not bake myself? Can President’s Choice Black Label Chocolate & Hazelnut Cookies from Switzerland impress me?
We loved these cookies. Thin, crispy, just enough chocolate with lots of hazelnut flavour… Reminiscent of Nutella with additional hazelnut texture in a crispy cookie. Reg said, “This is one of the best things I have ever eaten!”
They tasted fresh, the chocolate was good quality and I love the hazelnut flavour. My only complaint is you do not get very many cookies for the $4.99 box. They were gone in a heartbeat here. For a finicky foodie who is looking for something fancier than your average cookie though, these will fit the bill. One element I am not liking about this line is, as much as the photography is beautiful, you can not tell what the product looks like inside. Which I find annoying.
At that price though I probably will not buy them again, as much as I adored them. As a result, I give this product four out of five wooden spoons.
WHAT SHOULD I REVEW NEXT?
I have the opportunity to review more Black Label products and was wondering if there were any you were really curious about and wanted me to try for you? I have selected some examples here that you can vote for on my poll or just leave a comment and I will see what I can do about getting them and putting them through my test kitchen for you!
