It was a beautiful day here in Philadelphia this past Saturday so I decided to take a walk. It seems that I’m always in search of some kind of cupcake or dessert, so I decided to finally check out “Cookie Confidential.” I’ve been meaning to go there for quite a while now, but never took the opportunity to go. But I have to say – what a cute name for a Cookie Shop! It’s located about a half of a block from the hustle and bustle of South Street. I was surprised what a quiet, quaint place that it was. It was a bit on the dark side, and there wasn’t anyone in there when I arrived. I had the opportunity to just browse their cupcake and cookie selection.
Now, I totally understand that it’s a Cookie shop, so there’s going to be more cookies to choose from than cupcakes. But I just have to admit that I was a bit bummed by the selection of everything.I thought they were going to have a larger selection of cookies though. I was very interested in trying their Peanut Butter Cookie, but they didn’t have that. I also wanted to try the Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate Oatmeal, and Ginger Snap; they had none of those. They do have a Cheesesteak Cookie, but I can’t bring myself to try that.
I decided to get one Push-Up Cupcake Pop, and 4 cookies.
I got a Vanilla Buttermilk Push-Up Cake Pop:
I have to say that for $3, I was kind of disappointed. It was quite small and the flavor just wasn’t there. The cake was a bit on the dry side, and it really didn’t pack that vanilla-punch like I was expecting. The frosting wasn’t anything to write home about either. It really wasn’t all that flavorful – I just felt like I was eating plain ol’ frosting. So I would have to say I probably wouldn’t spend $3 on one of these again.
Now onto the cookies…
The Oatmeal Raisin Cookie was delicious! It was nice and chewy, just how I like my cookies. They weren’t bombarded with Raisins which is good in my opinion since I’m not a huge raisin fan. I would have picked the Plain Oatmeal Cookie if they had it, but they didn’t. It had a nice hint of cinnamon but it wasn’t too overpowering.
The Sugar Cookie was good as well. It was chewy and had a nice buttery, vanilla flavor. I was very happy with this cookie and would definitely get it again!
The Chocolate Chip Cookie was chewy in the middle, and a little crisp on the edges. It was packed with a good amount of chocolate chips in it and was nice and buttery. My favorite part is the chewy center!
The Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie was very chocolatey. It was packed with chocolate chips as well, and was very delicious. I was just very disappointed in how small it was! It was almost half the size of the Chocolate Chip Cookie.
The Cookies were definitely better than the Cupcake Push Up Pop; after all, it’s called Cookie Confidential! I thought the Cookies were priced a bit high for what you get though; they are 95 cents each. If you ask me, they should be about 50 cents tops for the size you get. If they were larger I could get down with the 95 cent price tag, but they are tiny!
Stop by and pick up some cookies. They are located at:
