Look at what you made me DoUX, DoUX Cookies. Sigh. Excuse the perhaps-overused T-Swift pun, but eating your soft cookies have unleashed my inner sweet tooth that I never knew I had. But hey, at least the box says that the cookies are stress-free and egg-free, right? You guys are officially saving the world, one baby chick at a time.
So. Here’s how it goes. DoUX Cookies have six soft cookies in its core collection. Two chocolate-based, and four vanilla-based. I think the former is generally sweeter compared to the latter, so Hot Coco and Chocolate Sea Salt are the chosen ones when you’re in need of a sugar high. Or if you’re a chocolate enthusiast, of course.
Having said that, my personal favorite is Confetti, a vanilla cookie with white chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles. Almost Smores comes close in second place, thanks to the gooey marshmallows. When dipped in milk, those two successfully create a party in my mouth.
The tricky part is when one encounters DoUX Cookies for the first time at the occasional pop up bazaar. Instead of getting the easy way of ordering one each of that six core collection, there will also be limited-edition flavors thrown in the mix, such as Red Velvet or Martabak. It gets worse when the friendly four co-owners start talking everything soft cookie and all you can do is try to resist trying them all. It’s pretty obvious that DoUX is first and foremost a labor of love, and the result shows.
Whether you prefer your soft cookies chewy, cold, or warm, DoUX Cookies is ready with a set of instructions on how to do it. Though I think the best way is to eat ‘em is when the cookies are still a bit chewy in the middle (plus dip a little into milk), considering that the cookies can survive to up to two weeks, I might have to stock up a bit for when the need for something sweet hits.
