There can be a fine line between candy and snack/dessert. I generally don’t review cookies, but I have reviewed Pocky and Pocky-like treats. I’ve never reviewed chocolate-filled cookies because they fall into a grey area on the candy to snack/dessert spectrum.
Fortunately, Serious?Eats?tried a bunch and crowned Hello Panda to be the champ. Koala’s March came in last, which is a shame, as I think they have the cutest Koala pictures printed on the cookies.
