Would you purchase these cookies if you saw them on the shelf? Well I did, I mean chocolate and chili, just what a Mexican gal eats. Alright, I won't lie, I thought it was a strange combination so of course I had to purchase them and have a tasting event ,and guess who ate them all? The squirrel or Me?
After the first bite, I didn't taste the chili, so I ate the second cookie, the chocolate melted in my mouth so I had to eat a third one, just to make sure. After eating all 12 cookies I will be honest, they were ordinary triple chocolate chip cookies, very similar to Chips Ahoy. So would I buy them again? They were a bit too crunchy for my taste, I prefer eating soft chewy cookies. Plus for the price of 19.99 kunas ($4 dollars) you can buy several pieces of the local baked pastries. Sorry El Tequito but these cookies need a heavier dose of chilies to be called Chili Cookies. What strange foods have you come across when you go grocery shopping?
(Disclosure Note: A few years ago when we lived in Colorado I followed a recipe for double-chocolate chip cookies and I over baked them! So I placed them outside the balcony to rid the house of the burnt smell, well I didn't count on my small neighbor, the squirrel, to enjoy my burnt cookies.)
