Amul Chocolate Cookies Review – Crunchy, Crispy & Chocolatey
The Amul Chocolate Cookies are made using Amul Butter and Amul Chocolate. These cookies have a nice bite to them and are available in a variety of flavors.
Anand Milk Union Limited, commonly known as Amul, is the largest and most loved cooperative dairy brand in India. Based in Anand, Gujarat, Amul was established in 1946 by Mr. Verghese Kurien.
The Father of the White Revolution, Mr. Kurien established Amul to help rural farmers market their dairy produce. Gradually, Amul started expanding its base by manufacturing and distributing butter, cheese, and other dairy products.
Today, we can see Amul frozen snacks, Amul beverages, and not to forget Amul chocolates – the list of Amul products continues to grow every day!
Recently, Amul came up with chocolate cookies that are made using Amul butter and Amul chocolate. It feels like a childhood dream come true, doesn’t it?
We ordered a box of the Amul chocolate chip cookies from an e-commerce store. Was this a nostalgic experience in a bite, or did things not live up to Amul products’ high standards? Let’s find out!
The Amul Chocolate Chip Cookies have a clean ingredient list. Made using Amul butter and Amul chocolate, we were curious to know whether the Amul Chocolate Cookies have a chewy and gooey texture or a crispy bite to them?
The Amul Chocolate Chip Cookies are available in a 50 gram as well as 200-gram pack. We ordered the 200-gm box of Amul Chocolate Cookies from Big Basket, and here’s what we think.
The Amul Chocolate Chip Cookies are made using refined wheat flour, sugar, butter, chocolate chips, cocoa solids, milk solids, and liquid glucose. This ingredient list matches that of a double chocolate cookie.
First things first, the sweetness is spot-on! It is not too overpowering to cover the chocolatey taste, nor too mild where we could not taste the cocoa.
Amul struck an outstanding balance between sweet and chocolatey flavors!
The fact that these Amul Chocolate Cookies are not thin and flat could also point to the fact that too much sugar has not been used in the cookie dough. Seasoned bakers will tell you that when you end up using too much sugar, the resultant cookies could be flat and dense.
3. Bite/Mouth Feel
There is a wide range of textures in which cookies are available. While some prefer softer cookies with a fudge-like texture, others like cookies with a crunch to them.
The Amul Chocolate Chip cookies are crunchy with softer bites the chocolate chips offer. We loved the range of textures we could feel in a single bite.
The Amul Chocolate Chip cookies are flavor loaded! The use of Amul butter to these cookies adds a rich flavor.
We could specifically taste this buttery smoothness around the cookie edges.
In addition to this, the cookies have an intense chocolate flavor. We think this is because the cocoa powder has been added along with the chocolate chips.
The ingredient list says plain chocolate chips have been used. Our experience of eating these cookies further told us that pretty big chunks of Amul chocolate have been used in the cookie dough.
5. Texture & Color
To simply put it, the Amul Chocolate Chip cookies are- buttery, crunchy, chocolatey! In addition to this, the cookies aren’t dense, and they feel very light and airy.
That being said, these cookies are ever so slightly crumbly.
The use of cocoa solids adds a rich brown color to the cookies, which adds to the overall visual appeal. The chocolate chips/chunks are a darker shade of brown that doesn’t just add to the textures but also the overall look. There was a powdery coating on some pieces.
The 200-gm box of Amul Chocolate Cookies is priced at Rs 65/- You get 20 pieces of the Amul Chocolate Chip cookies packed in a plastic tray.
Chocolate-flavored cookies with chocolate chips are typically available in a higher price range. Looking at the list of ingredients where in-house ingredients are used, we think the Amul Chocolate Chip Cookies are decently priced.
These are also available in a smaller 50-gram pack priced at Rs 15/-.
Made using 22% Amul butter, you’d think the Amul Chocolate Cookies are dense and hard.
However, these chocolate chip cookies have a light and airy texture.
These aren’t like the chewy cookies that are characterized by a fudge-like texture.
The Amul Chocolate Chip Cookies are crunchy but not hard. They have a nice bite to them.
The creaminess from the chocolate chips and the overall airy texture of the cookies pairs beautifully.
