Have you ever needed coffee so badly that you wished you could eat it as easily as you can drink it? (No? Just me?) new Pepperidge Farm Milano cookie flavors answer the call of caffeine lovers everywhere, arriving just in time to snuggle up with a hot cup and a full bag as the cold winter weather arrives. Two new Milano cookie flavors are now available at Target and they’ll make your holiday season extra happy and bright.
Both flavors – Caramel Macchiato and Irish Coffee – promise to give cookie connoisseurs something new and delicious to enjoy during the holidays. You better believe I’m gonna fill “Santa’s” cookie plate with both. Coffee-loving moms everywhere will be snacking on Milano’s new flavors as soon as bedtime rolls around on Christmas Eve, and there’s absolutely no shame in the game.
I first tasted a Milano cookie at my best friend’s tea-themed birthday party in third grade. The combination of this crispy, wafer-like cookie and smooth, delicious chocolate had such a fancy feel that it melted in my mouth. I was immediately hooked – and I mean immediately. After the party, I gushed about my new found love for Milanos all the way to the grocery store where my mom quickly introduced me to the mint variety I claim as my favorite to date.
I’m sure the new drink-inspired cookie flavors will give my mint obsession a run for its money. Can you imagine biting into a crispy Milano cookie and being struck not only by the taste of their famous velvety chocolate on your tongue, but also by the same intensely rich caramel notes found in your favorite coffee drink? It feels like a little slice of heaven is waiting inside a cookie bag, just waiting to be devoured by your coffee-crazed self.
And let’s talk about Irish Cream, shall we? Although I am fully aware that Irish Cream in itself is not exactly a coffee drink, it is a basic coffee supplement that gives your cup of coffee that extra little kick we all need to master the madness of the holiday, so it matches the cafe theme perfectly. Even if you’re not one to indulge in a liqueur regularly, if you’ve ever had the pleasure of sipping a cup of intensely roasted Irish coffee, you know the warm, fuzzy feeling that even a small sip brings. Pack this creamy delight into a bite-sized cookie, pair it with delicate chocolate and you have Irish Cream Milano yourself.
Cookie lovers everywhere are going to be clamoring to get their hands on Milano’s two new flavors ahead of the holidays, and they’ll likely end up in the shopping cart of every Target errand you do this season. Each 7-ounce bag retails for $3.89 and contains 15 delicious cookies, made without any artificial preservatives.
So when you’re arguing with your three kids at Target as you desperately scour the aisles for the perfect gift to take on your cross-country trek to see Grandma Mary, now you can bribe them with the promise to open a bag of new Milanos as soon as you cross the queue. And don’t forget to save a few for yourself too. After all, it’s the holidays. No one deserves cookies more than you.
