As I child, I LOVED Chips Ahoy cookies. Back then, there were only two varieties; Original (Crunchy) and Chewy. I was all about the Original. I absolutely HATED the Chewy variety. To me, they did not have a ‘chocolate chip cookie’ taste.

As I grew older, I noticed my taste buds changing. I started gravitating less to the sweet snacks and more to the saltier snacks… except for donuts. Donuts was my sweet tooth’s kryptonite. I could (and still can) pass up a chocolate bar, but I was Homer Simpson around donuts.

When I saw Lamarr Wilson do a taste test of these on his channel, I was intrigued. Could they REALLY put the taste of a cinnamon donut into a cookie? I honestly didn’t think this would be possible. Despite my hatred of the Chewy variety, I bought a package to test them out.

Where these differ from normal Chips Ahoy cookies is they contain NO chocolate chips. Instead, they are made with Cinnamon & Apple flavored chips. Truth be told, I could not taste any of the apple flavor in these.

I also don’t think these are as chewy as the normal Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies. From my memories, the Chewy variety crumbled VERY easily. These cookies have a good form to them and didn’t crumble, even when bit into.

The most amazing thing about these cookies is they actually DO taste like a cinnamon donut. I’m not talking the kind that are pre-boxed; I’m talking about the ones that you’d find in your local grocery store’s bakery, with the crystallized cinnamon and sugar topping.

The main problem I see disabled people having with these is opening the package. While it does have a pulltab on the top, the plastic does not fully separate, and can become twine-like. These thin plastic 'strings' probably could cut, if you're not watching what you're doing. I don't see any major issues with chewing, since these are soft and take minimal effort to chew.

Cinnamon Donut Chips Ahoy cookies are available from most major retailers, starting at $2.99.

These cookies have changed my opinion about Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies... They are delicious and PERFECT for the Holiday Season!
