This box of cookies was kind of expensive, wow. I’ve been wanting to taste these cookies for a while, and finally got a box the last time I went to the Asian market. I didn’t expect them to be the price they were ($3.29 for the box), but they ended up being a good buy in the end.

I was expecting the cookies to mainly be the wheat cookie itself, covered in just enough chocolate that you could taste it but it didn’t over power the cookie itself. The cookie is crunchy but not too hard. It’s easy enough to bite into without hurting your mouth.

There is a LOT more chocolate on this cookie than I had expected. It looks like a 50-50 ratio of chocolate to cookie, which is the best when it comes to a small cookie like this. The cookie doesn’t have too much of a taste to it, but kind of tastes like a chocolate chip cookie without the chocolate chips, but not like a sugar cookie. I’m not sure, but with the chocolate it kind of tastes like a chocolate chip cookie that’s got a lot of chocolate chips in each bite (which I think is the best kind of chocolate chip cookie).

These are interesting. If you’ve seen them before, they’re supposed to be shaped like bamboo shoots from what I can tell. There’s another type of cookie like this one that’s shaped like mushrooms, and another shaped like the trunk of a tree. I didn’t see either of those at the store, just these.

The box itself is pretty cute, and it seems like it can be turned into a robot or something like that. I don’t know, I can’t read the box. But either way, it’s a good little snack with a cute box and you should pick it up if you see it at a store or Asian market, if not for you than a younger family member or someone that enjoys these snacks.
