REVIEW: Pillsbury Limited Edition Marshmallow Cookies with Marshmallow Bits

Pillsbury Limited Edition Marshmallow Cookies with Marshmallow Bits

What are Pillsbury Limited Edition Marshmallow Cookies with Marshmallow Bits?

Stick with me here folks; these are (supposedly) marshmallow-flavored cookies with little hot cocoa packet-style marbits.

How are they?

They’re fine, but if you’re expecting BIG marshmallow flavor, I’ve got bad news.

The cookies smelled like yellow cake mix in the oven, and I convinced myself they were going to taste like marshmallows. They ended up tasting like a sugar cookie, unfortunately.

I had to convince myself the cookie was marshmallow flavored, and it still never really seemed true. Although, on some bites, I felt like I was tasting extremely subdued cotton candy, which made little sense but was welcomed.

Is there anything else you need to know?

Pillsbury Limited Edition Marshmallow Cookies with Marshmallow Bits Raw

Pillsbury Limited Edition Marshmallow Cookies with Marshmallow Bits Baked

I ate these three different ways – as dough, hot from the oven, and cooled down.

Eating raw dough may not be recommended by that giggly punk the Pillsbury Doughboy, but we all do it. It was worth it. Don’t sue if you get sick.

They’re generic sugar cookies fresh from the oven. The marbits were so melty that they just blended in with the soft cookie and any flavor was lost.

I know the joy of baking cookies is eating them hot, but give ’em time to cool, because the marshmallows harden into a nice crisp, and that’s where the overall cookie shined brightest.

Pillsbury Limited Edition Marshmallow Cookies with Marshmallow Bits Bitten

While they didn’t taste like these specifically, the texture of the marshmallow reminded me of Linden’s Butter Crunch cookies. You know, those little yellow three cookie pouches at the convenience store? I’ve loved them since I was a kid.

I added chocolate chips to a few cookies, and they overpowered any alleged marshmallow flavor.

Conclusion:

I’m no baker, so I appreciate how simple these pre-made Pillsbury cookies are. I can pretend I baked without having the mix ingredients or clean up.

They’re good enough, low priced, and require no work. Why not try em?

If you’re unfamiliar with the fast food side, they’re potato bites with melted cheese and a crunchy bread crumb coating. Unfortunately, for fans of the original, only the Bacon Cheesy Tots are on the menu this time around, and only for a limited time.

An 8-piece order has 330 calories, 14 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 0 gram of trans fat, 15 milligrams of cholesterol, 1020 milligrams of sodium, 41 grams of carbohydrates, ?? grams of fiber, 2 grams of sugar, and 10 grams of protein.

SPOTTED: Chobani Flip Limited Batch Lemon Meringue Pie

Chobani Flip Limited Batch Lemon Meringue Pie

When I first saw this photo, I thought Chobani already had a lemon meringue pie flavor. But then after a quick Google search, I realized I confused it with Chobani’s Lemon Meringue Crisp and Dannon’s Lemon Meringue. (Spotted by @goatheadjp at Walmart.)

SPOTTED: Betty Crocker Limited Edition Lemon Cake Mug Treats

Betty Crocker Limited Edition Lemon Cake Mug Treats

Hey, Betty Crocker! There’s this food trend going on called unicorn that I think might work well with your Mug Treats. What flavor is “unicorn”? It’s whatever your heart desires. Maybe have a pink, purple, or blue cake with a glittery topping. Or if you have edible glitter, that would be awesome too. (Spotted by Sarah R at Walmart.)
