49. Soft Baked Santa Cruz Oatmeal Raisin
The official cookie sponsor of retirement homes nationwide, the Santa Cruz is a little dense with a powerful cinnamon flavor, like a gingerbread cookie without the ginger. It's good, though it'd be even better if there were more oats and fewer raisins. Your grandmother might disagree... with everything, actually.
48. Tahoe Milk Chocolate Macadamia Nut
I mean, it’s still a shortbread cookie with chocolate, so that’s something. But there is a powerfully bitter artificial flavor here that I couldn’t shake. It's definitely not what comes to mind when I think of macadamia nuts.
47. Crunchy Almond Milano Slice
Dismissing the fact that the Milano Slice inherently confuses me (why would you only give us half a Milano?!), this cookie looks good enough with its smearing of almond-covered chocolate. Yet one bite revealed that same weird nut flavor as No. 48, which just makes me yearn for the OG Milano. And not half of one, either.
46. Pumpkin Spice Milano
The cookie itself is still good, but the flavor of the pumpkin spice amounts to nothing more than cinnamon and “orange dye” flavor, which spoils the poor Milano. Still, we're sure the basic crowd will love it!
45. Tahoe White Chocolate Macadamia Nut
Somehow this works a lot better than the milk chocolate chip version. Trying to get to the heart of the artificial nut flavor takes me to the bottom of the ingredient label, which reads, “Tree nut meal: almonds, cashews, pecans, walnut." But hey, those are all nuts, so... yeah.
44. S'mores Soft Baked
We’ve got your standard soft cookie here, which is pleasant and always fun to eat, but there’s no discernible flavor of s’mores to be found anywhere. The addition of graham cracker chunks into the cookie would send it over the edge. As it stands, the campfire dreams are dampened.
43. Raspberry Chocolate Milano
The raspberry is pretty off on this one. It tastes a bit like a cookie you'd eat to combat a sore throat.
These are pretty similar to the Lisbon -- a hard, round cookie dipped in chocolate with even more chocolate baked in -- only sans the extra chocolate. And the extra chocolate goes a looooong way on the Farm.
41. Dulce De Leche Milano
Opening the bag brings on a powerful smell of caramel, but the taste isn't as rich as it lets on. It's kind of like a weak Werther’s cookie.
