These are something really fun for the holidays- I found them at Sweetbay grocery. Havn't seen these at all in many years but I have a Chocolate covered Ritz box in my collection with no year on it- I think its from the 80's. I even wrote to Nabisco and they didnt know either! But the new ones are Fudge covered, its a thin layer and tastes great except needs a dash of salt- seems they brushed all the salt off to make these and its just a little too sweet to have much of the real Ritz flavor left. Still recommended, and great for gift giving!
I grabbed these the second I saw them at Walgreens- they look so delicious! Then I also had the Cool Mint Oreos at home and did a little taste test- they are actually quite similar in taste. The Andes cookies have a very nice thick layer of chocolate and their signature green creamy mint all wrapped around a chocolate cookie. And the Oreos are Double Stuf so they have plenty of Cool Mint creme and that dark chocolate cookie too....I am quite thrilled with both and highly recommend both! Creme de Menthe would be an elegant gift too.....
Oh my, these are decadent. This is any choco-lovers dream right here- Nestle choc chip cookies baked with chocolate or caramel filling inside! Its an ooey-gooey delight that is only made slightly better by rolling the dough in nuts too- cashews, peanuts, or almonds taste great. Also it helps to sprinkle a little salt on them before baking- they are just SO sweet it helps balance a little. Overall- amazing! Thanx Nestle! (and good job bouncing back from that recall....)
