Double Chocolate Isn't Double Yummy

NEW! Extra Chocolate! In Cookie Form!

A very good co-worker friend surprised me this summer with a box of awesomeness: Double Chocolate Cookie Crisp, featuring diabetes-inducing double-chocolate chip cookies.

The box, with a bright red "NEW" banner across the top, states that the flavour is "Double chocolate chip cookies and milk." I temporarily disagree with 50% of this statement: Until the milk is poured onto the cereal, there is no milk flavour.

Regardless, the cereal is fantastically sugary, yet lacking, however, still awesome. Original Cookie Crisp tastes like, well, little cookies. And they're damn tasty. Double Chocolate Cookie Crisp, the newest cookie/cereal combination product from the brilliant minds at General Mills, tastes more like a blast of sugar, with some chocolate chip cookies hidden in the background.

'Size increased (or decreased) to show detail... or not.The cookies in both cereals are effectively identical. I almost discribed them as virtually identical, but I hate the overused word virtually. Anyway, the only difference is that the 'Double Chocolate' cookies are coated in a chocolate confectionary coating, turning them into dark brown sugar demons, devouring your soul in the guise of nutrition. It makes sense. The cookie factory doesn't have to make different cookies. It just has to run overtime to create extra cookies, then blast them with the confectionary coating. That's how you keep jobs in America.

Upon consumption of the ultra-chocolately cookies, I discovered that they weren't quite as good as regular Cookie Crisp. I found that for snack-time, dry Cookie Crisp wasn't totally great, but pour some milk on 'em and they explode with deliciousness. Double Chocolate Cookie Crisp (DCx3) was essentially the opposite: It was fab dry, but didn't taste super great with the moo juice.

DCx3 certainly isn't raunch. Some might find it to be the most supreme cereal they've ever eaten, and would gladly trade a kidney for a bowl. I think that it's an average cereal despite the hype of more chocolate. I would not trade an organ for this cereal. I prefer the regular Cookie Crisp.

In conclusion, I don't think the Cookie Cop has to worry too much about the Cookie Crook - if they even still exist. These cookies will be relatively safe from any stealage, while regular Cookie Crisp still needs protection. One Martini-thumb up for Double Chocolate Cookie Crisp.

i wasn't aware either of these products were available in canada. I was under the impression that they needed to be smuggled in from our american cousints.

or perhaps your friend is in the cookie-smuggling business. perhaps i should become friends with this friend so i can get my hands on some cookie crisp.

ya know? I have a secret to divulge. I've NEVER tasted Cooooooookie Crisp. I always wanted to, but my mom wouldn't buy it as a young un'. Now that I'm older, they don't sell in Canada. Murphy's law. I'll believe you about the chocolate though. I hate when a good product is screwed with myself.

I love that you dubbed them DCX3. They sound so more street that way, like some kind of tailored drug. With all that sugar in them that may well be what they are. We have to make sure they don't fart around with tried and true stuff. It's like at the store when I see the new OhHenry of the week.

Moderation is the best. Too much chocolate in those cookies and it spoils the taste.

We don't have that here either. The only edible chocolate chip cookies where I come from are Famous Amos... even those are a wee bit too sweet.

You know what would be the bestest (since the nutirtional value is probably they same)? Fill a bowl with REAL chocolate chip cookies and milk.

I'm glad we're all in agreement. I'll inform the overlord that the anti-DCx3 plan will go into effect immediately, and DCx3 guards will be set up at all border crossings. We will not allow this abomination into our innocent country.

I only wish we could get regular Cookie Crisp here. Then I wouldn't have to stress about "importing" it.
