This is an American Style cookie at its finest. An XXL serving full of calories. And a bit more on top of that. This is an American style, the worst one.
I’m sure you know that feeling when you see something that seems to be fantastic. But when you come closer to it, it turns out to be much worse than it appeared to be. And I’m pretty sure disappointing is only one of a few negative feelings that may strike you at that moment. And, well, this is what happened to me with this Weider All American Cookie Dough protein cookie. If you bothered that at all.
This protein cookie from Weider smells brilliant! Absolutely amazing. If you ever had a chance to smell a real, homemade cookie dough, then this is it. A real, an American Cookie Dough smell. This cookie is decidedly tough on the outside. In contrast, it’s comfortable soft inside. And crumbly. Also, it won’t stick to the teeth. However, that’s the last good news here. It’s pretty dryish and not too tasty, so a sip or two may be needed while eating it. Anyway, let’s get to the point.
This protein cookie smells lovely, so you expect it won’t taste worse, right? Unfortunately, not.
This cookie is terrible in its taste. It’s dreadfully bitter, crumbly and not sweet at all. Also, what shouldn’t be a surprise, there’s bitter aftertaste too. And the overall experience is shockingly bad. I’m wondering who accepted this something for selling?
Anyway, I was really struggling to eat this Weider protein cookie. But I wanted to eat the entire one, just for you. I did it. And that’s enough for me. I don’t want any more of it. Because besides the taste of it, there are a couple more reasons for that. Macros.
Hold tight, because it’s going to be spectacular. Twice. Ok, a single 90g of this protein cookie from Weider delivers a staggering 445 kcal (nope, it’s not a mistake). There’s also 23g of fat (this is not a mistake, either), 38g of carbs (including 17g of sugar) and 22g of protein. Does it sound bold? I think so, but that’s not the whole truth.
The thing is, the cookie weights not 90g, but… more than 105g! Say what? Yep, that’s right. This cookie weights 105.6g, so its real macros are something like this: 520 kcal(!), 27g of fat(!), 44g of carbs (including 20g of sugar) and 25.6g of protein. And still, these are most likely not the most accurate numbers though. Well, this is what we call a real size XXL.
Is it necessary to say anything about ingredients? These are also in an American style, so there are added sugar, palm fat, glucose syrup and glucose-fructose syrup. Should I suggest anything regarding a slight tune over here?
Can I have an XL size of this cookie, please? No worries, this is your XXL size. And don’t forget about this on top of that.
Weider Protein Cookie All American Cookie Dough deserves for its name for sure. This is a lovely cookie when it comes to its smell, but everything else is just a piece of sh*t here. Sorry. Its taste (it’s disgusting!), dryness, macros or ingredients. They’re all terrible. And that weight making this cookie a real XXL cookie with 520 kcal and 27g of fat per serving. Absolutely disaster.
Will I ever go back to this protein cookie? No. Do I need to say anything more here? Maybe something like ‘there is another similarly overall bad protein cookie on the market’.
