Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'm not baking cookies today, but here's another review from my trip to Boston...

What trip to Boston is complete without a stop at Quincy Market and Fanueil Hall? Two bakeries caught my eyes as I was going through the row of enticing flavors and smells. 

Kilvert & Forbes Bakeshop- Maggie's Sweets 

Their slogan under the chocolate chip cookie display read, "less butter, more chips". I don't know if they really used less butter (the cookie was chewy and just slightly sweet), but they sure used more chips! Delicious! I declare their Heath Cookie the best in Quincy Market. Super chewy with a great combination of toffee, chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips, this cookie had it all. Giant cookies are $3.50 each.

Carol Anns Bake Shop
After trying Maggie's Sweets, this was a disappointment. Oatmeal raisin, M&M, and chocolate chip varieties were available. I tried the small sized chocolate chip. It tasted like an average grocery store bakery cookie- too sweet, crispy on the edges and overly soft in the middle. Small cookies are $1 each. Large cookies are $3 each.

Do you have a favorite food in Quincy Market?
