Tesco's Finest Soft Eating Orange and Cranberry Cookies Review
Now here's a very strange coincidence.... my boss returned from a trip to Cape Cod this weekend, and as is customary, he brought into the office for our delectation some of the local produce - in this instance, a box of Cape Cod Cranberry Cookies. I was just tucking into one of these when I thought I would check out your site to see what was on offer for "Biscuit of the Week" and was quite spookily surprised to see that you too had been reviewing cranberry cookies!
The Cape Cod variety, unfortunately, bore little resemblance to any cookie I have previously eaten and in fact bore a marked similarity in texture and flavour to over-sweetened sawdust - no attempt here to "balance out any potentially overly sweet taste" as Tesco's evidently achieved so successfully. In fact, there were no large pieces of anything, least of all cranberry, in the cookie at all to give any degree of interest whatsoever, despite the picture on the box, to which the cookies bear no resemblance... (in fact they looked like semi-digested dog biscuit... trust me on this!) The back of the box claims that "our cookies will carry you to the clear, sunny beaches of Cape Cod, giving your senses a long deserved vacation from the average fare..." Actually, this is curiously apt, given the fact that my poor boss endured a week of continuous rain during his stay in Cape Cod last week, so in both instances the promise did not live up to the reality!
However, despite my harsh words on the subject of these cookies, the 10 chaps with whom I work researched them so thoroughly that they soon put paid to the entire contents of the box, so sadly there are now none left for me to photograph for you - you will have to be content with a picture of the empty box! It just goes to show what people will eat when there is no other choice.... Unfortunately we don't have a Tesco on Guernsey, so we can't compare the two varieties; have to see if Safeway have anything similar to offer!
