Anyone else crazy about Chick-fil-a's new Chocolate Chunk cookie?

  • 8

I usually stay away from fast food baked goods as they're generally not tasty enough to waste money or calories on, but I was offered one for free about a month ago and was blown away by how delicious it was. It's probably the best chocolate chip cookie I've ever tasted that I didn't make myself. They use whole oats, both semi-sweet and milk chocolate chunks, and they're nice and soft even if you don't get one that came straight out of the oven. Most of the time they're still warm and gooey when you get your order, but I've found them to be just as good a few hours later when they're cool and less messy.

I've always liked Chick-fil-a so I wasn't surprised that they could pull off a good cookie if they put their mind into it, I was just surprised that it was *that* good. They're absolutely dangerous.

  1. I haven't, but your post makes me thankful I don't have a Chick-fil-a anywhere in my normal routes of travel.

    I have to go quite a bit out of the way for Chick-fil-a, and I'm glad I don't like to. I love their chicken, and I also love their sides. I'm not a fan of melon, which means most fruit salads are out for me, unless I make it at home. But I can get a big ol' bowl of fruit at Chcik-fil-a without any offending melon! Add some good cookies into the mix? I'd be there way too often!

      I'm with you.....the Chick-Fil-A fruit cup is their unsung hero.

      Oh, and their new brownies are really good too :-)

    2. oh dear. that sounds fantastic! I am a fan of the chik... now even more so. :)

      1. For a quick nosh, I like their chow ands it tastes good. I'd rather go there than most other fast food places.

        1. I'm like you, queenfrostine, I tend to shy away from baked goods because I don't generally appreciate them enough to justify the additional calories. So your report is unfortunate to hear. As a lover of Chick-fil-A, I stop in whenever I can. Now I'm going to have to try the cookie. As you said, this could be dangerous.

          1. Folks, we understand that there are issues with Chick-Fil-A, and that people want to talk about them, but there are plenty of threads discussing those issues, as well as the comments on the recent CHOW blog post about it. Please don't drag threads that are about the food at Chick-Fil-A off on that tangent, as well.

            1. I've never had dessert there but it sounds yummy.

              1. Agreed. The cookies are amazing.
