As promised, I made a second trip to French's for further investigation, hoping to find out what all of the hype was about. This second visit did not disappoint. I tried some of their smaller cookies, which qualify for the $2 off dozen Thursdays, making them $2.98 per dozen.
My favorite cookies were the chocolate walnut (brownie-like and very gooey) and the shell-shaped butter cookie dipped in chocolate (very buttery, melts in your mouth). The shell cookie takes me back to my pre-school days when we got butter cookies every day at snack time. Mmmm... I also tried the small chocolate chip cookie. It was much crispier and flavorful than the large chocolate dipped chocolate chip that I ate on my first visit, but I would still skip it. I will be heading back for my two favs, but only on a Thursday. $4.98 is way too much to pay for a dozen of tiny cookies.
