Orion: Chokochip

It’s been a while, but I’m back! Since my skin isn’t thick enough to allow me to take out my camera and snap photos of my food, I have elected to review snack food instead.

First up, we have Orion’s chokchokhan(moist) chokochip. The box says that these are “wonderfully moist and soft chocolate chip cookies”.

Orion’s Chokochip lives up to “moist and soft” very well. It lives up to it so well that it should not be considered a cookie, but a compressed chocolate cake.
It also has a strong thick chocolate flavour reminiscent of a brownie. Or solidified hot chocolate.

Verdict: 7 out of 10 Damns
I really was expecting a cookie…

Price: 1500 won/box

Puffy: Cookie Puff

Isms and I are big fans of World Square, we always seem to be walking around there during our outings and we decided we will try Puffy’s cookie puff.

It was quite a line, people were actually rushing to be in front of us. I’m guessing it must have been quite yummy.

Isms started taking photos while lining up.

A whole box of uncooked cookies being lay out for rising.
I have to say the service was quite fast, we were already at the counter.
The girl who served us was pretty cold, took our money and we were then expected to move over to the other side to collect our puffs.

And Isms and I had a cookie puff each.

It looked crispy and smelt pretty good. Till….

Isms took a bite.
I took a bite after all those photos.

It was not crispy at all. How did that even seem to be like a cookie at all?
The filling was a tad sweet and milky. Not creamy at all.

Verdict: 5 out of 10 damns
It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t bad. It was just… so-so. The service was cold, but fast.
