REVIEW: Limited Edition Chips Ahoy Sour Patch Kids Cookies

Limited Edition Chips Ahoy Sour Patch Kids Cookies

Thankfully, the candy pieces in Limited Edition Chips Ahoy Sour Patch Kids Cookies aren’t chopped up Sour Patch Kids baked into the cookies.

Because if they were, I’d be freaked out by a gummy arm or leg sticking out of the cookie or an eye of a Sour Patch Kid half-buried in the cookie looking at me with a look of vengeance.

Instead of dismembering the popular candy to make these cookies, they have small colorful fruity-flavored chips and even smaller gummy fruity bits that’ll get stuck to your teeth.

Although these are Chips Ahoy cookies, you need to get out of your head that they’re chocolate chip cookies. You will not find brown chocolate chips. You will not see the word “chocolate” anywhere in the ingredients list.

What you will see is that the cookies look like what might happen if Crayola and Chips Ahoy collaborated using actual crayon pieces. What you will smell with these cookies is something that reminds me of a fruity breakfast cereal with a citrusy emphasis.

They smell nice, but when it comes to flavor, it’s not as appealing, and these might be Chips Ahoy’s Swedish Fish Oreo. For those of you too young to remember that limited edition Oreo, it was a variety I imagine nine out of ten Oreo fans would consider the titleholder for Weirdest Tasting Oreo Flavor. It also combined a beloved cookie owned by Mondelez International with the flavor of a beloved gummy candy owned by Mondelez International.

Most of the bites taken from these Chips Ahoy Cookies have an odd taste. Both candy bits have some sourness, but it seems to be more noticeable with the chewy nubs. And that sour flavor doesn’t go well with the rest of the cookie.

But the worst part is the aftertaste, which makes me wonder if I just ate an orange Flintstones vitamin or someone forced a fruitcake into my mouth. On the bright side, I should be glad the cookies aren’t as sour as the candy, which would’ve made these even less palatable.

There were a few decent tasting bites that reminded me of a lemon cookie, but, overall, Limited Edition Chips Ahoy Sour Patch Kids is the titleholder for Weirdest Tasting Chips Ahoy Flavor.

  1. Funny story, I got a 5 lb bag of sour patch kids recently and on the back was a recipe for sour patch kid cookies. It simply told you to put whole sour patch kids into any sugar cookie recipe. They were surprisingly good? Not sure how they compare to these.

  2. How does something like this even get the go ahead?? This doesn’t even sound appealing on paper. I LOVE all things sour but some things just shouldn’t be done, and this is one of them.

  3. You need to have a child reviewer on hand to specifically tackle these products that are clearly marketed to the 7 y/o palate. No adult should have to take the bullet for something like this.

  4. These were weird, but I actually liked them. It appealed to the inner kid in me.

    I wouldn’t say they’re super delicious, just okay. They were more fun to eat for the novelty factor more then anything.

    You were right when you said some bites tasted like a lemon cookie. Other times, it felt like I was eating bubblegum ice cream in cookie form.

  5. I just had them today and I find them oddly tasty but I understand how someone would think differently. Definitely couldn’t binge eat them,there overpowering fruit flavor makes them very sweet. It’s a fun novelty buy fee sure
