Best store-bought cookie? Tate's, says Consumer Reports
Consumer Reports taste testers tried 18 store-bought and fast-food cookies, including Nabisco's Chips Ahoy, and deemed Tate's "excellent" for its buttery flavor, homemade taste and smooth chocolate chips.
Three fast-food cookies -- from Starbucks, McDonalds and Subway -- were rated "very good"; they were "soft, buttery and chewy." Dunkin’ Donuts Triple was rated a little lower because it was "slightly tough" and had "gritty chips."
The lowest-rated? Weight Watchers, the cookie with the least fat and fewest calories, "was soft and chewy but felt chalky in the mouth and had small, gritty chips and a strange, nonfood off-taste."
