I’m pretty sure this is one of the OG Complete Cookie flavors in addition to chocolate chip. At this point, I’ve tried both their peanut butter and double chocolate peanut butter swirl flavors. Considering the double chocolate peanut butter swirl cookie was derived from their peanut butter and double chocolate flavors, I already had a good idea of what to expect before I wrote this Double Chocolate Complete Cookie review. I did like the double chocolate component in that cookie, so logic tells me I’m bound to like this flavor as well.
Double Chocolate Complete Cookie Review
Logic prevails. I did up enjoying this cookie which should come as no surprise. The chocolate flavor in this cookie was quite strong. In addition to the strong chocolate base of the cookie itself, there’s a lot of chocolate chips that are pretty flavorful and abundant. Both of those aspects coming together creates the ‘double’ part of the double chocolate title, I guess. I found it delicious, but it was a little on the rich side if I’m being totally honest. I could see how it could be too much for some people to consume the whole cookie at once, but I LOVE chocolate so this was no problem for me. If you’re one of those people who’s kinda ‘eh’ on chocolate though, then this might get a little rich for you after awhile.
The entire cookie totals out to 380 calories consisting of the macros 16p/54c/12f in addition to 8g fiber. Considering the strong flavoring of the cookie and the chocolate chips, I was expecting this to be a little bit higher in calories so the macros aren’t too bad all things considering. Still high though, obviously, but not that bad compared to some of their other flavors. A serving size is only ½ a cookie, but saving half of the cookie for later just seems like leaving a job unfinished and I’m not about that life.
I knew what to expect going into this Double Chocolate Complete Cookie review, and I’m happy to report those expectations were met. The chocolate flavor was indeed very strong due to the chocolatey base combined with the chocolate chips. For chocolate lovers and Lenny & Larry’s cookie lovers, you’re bound to love this cookie. For sure. For the people who aren’t as crazy about chocolate as other flavors though, then the chocolate flavor might be a little too rich for you after some time. For reference, I liked this about the same as their peanut butter flavor, but not as much as their double chocolate peanut butter swirl flavor since that takes the best of both worlds and combines them.
