I didn’t grow up with a lot of baked goods. It wasn’t really a part of my culture. Not surprisingly, it wasn’t long until I started to take a liking to them. After all, who can say no to a soft, moist, and buttery cookie?
Well I certainly couldn’t.
This is the only Nestle Toll House store in BC, and in Canada for that matter (strange choice, because you would assume most chains would open their flagship store in Vancouver or Toronto). Like a bakery, all the sweets are displayed at the front of the shop. There are various types of desserts, with the majority being cookies. They also have smoothies and Nescafe products.
What went in
I went straight for the epic: the Double Trouble. 2 large cookies stuck together with a thick layer of icing.
Is it too rich? Yes. Is it too sweet? Yes. But is it awesome? Oh yeah.
You can’t think of this cookie as a snack. It’s a lot more than that, literally. Everything about it is overwhelming. Come to think of it, it was much more about “shock value” than good taste.
I also tried the Triple Chocolate Chip. It didn’t give as big of an impression, however it did taste better.
I think if they had made specific cookies, with less sugar and butter, for the Double Trouble, the end result would be much more balanced, and better tasting.
What came out
Almost 2 dollars for a regular cookie isn’t very cheap, but to be expected. The larger Double Trouble is over 3 dollars.
The staff was friendly. But there’s not a whole lot they have to do service wise.
It was a fun experience, and I wouldn’t mind trying those big cookie cakes one day. But to be honest the novelty will probably wear off quick.
