Our Review Factors

What were we looking for in these cashew cookies?

Related Products
*Based on Mishry's internal reviews and ratings

The taste and texture of these cookies were the prime deciding factors in which brand would be titled our Top Pick.

The price, packaging, and ingredients were taken into account too. 

1. Taste

We were looking for fresh cookies with that rich buttery flavor. We gauged the freshness of nuts and whether or not the cookies had the adequate sweetness. 

We also gauged the intensity of flavors, that addictive mix of butter + sugar, and if it tasted synthetic.

This should be something that would pair well with a cup of tea or even when nibbled on without a beverage.

2. Texture

A well-baked cookie/biscuit has a golden brown surface and a slightly darker brown base. We were looking for cookies that had a firm, crisp bite, some crunchy bits of nuts, and was not too crumbly. 

3. Other Parameters

We gauged the price, packaging, shelf life, appearance, and other non-tasting parameters here.

Our Review Process

Not all cashew cookies are made the same, is what we learnt during our cashew cookies review. Some are made with cashews and butter, others boast of cashews and other nuts in their ingredient list. 

Primarily, we chose brands that are available across major stores, online and offline. 

Whatever the brand offered as their version of a cashew cookie – we chose that variant to test. The sample could have just cashews, or a mix of cashew and almonds as well.

Cashew Cookies – Detailed Review

Our detailed experience with all contenders are explained in this section. 

1. Cremica Cashew Cookies – Mishry Top Pick

Why did Cremica Win? Our Experience.

We kept going back for seconds and thirds of Cremica Cashew biscuits. This was the clear indication that it was our Top Pick.

These cashew biscuits were well-baked, super crisp, and fresh. The cookies were neither too hard nor too crumbly. The nut bits added a crunch to the bite. The sweetness was well-rounded, they had the characteristic flavor of butter, with a delicate sweet, vanilla-like aroma. Thumbs up for absolutely no rancid/sythentic aromas or flavors.

Despite being packed without a tray, none of the biscuits were broken or cracked. There were a few crumbs, but nothing worth deducting points over.

2. Britannia Good Day Cashew Cookies

Our Experience

Right of the bat, these were some pretty good cashew cookies with slightly lesser cashew bits than our Top Pick.

There are five individual packs, and the biscuits are stacked without any tray. These cookies had wave patterns on the surface, and a rich milky-vanilla aroma. Crispy but these melt in your mouth, the texture was impeccable. We quite liked the taste- these were sweet enough to be nibbled on as is, but would also pair well with a cup of masala chai. The cashews lent their nutty flavor and overall, these cookies had a buttery flavor.

Why Cremica trumped Britannia? Our Top Pick had a better, nuttier cookie with a more balanced flavor profile.

3. Sunfeast Mom’s Magic Cashew Almond Cookies

Our Experience

Sunfeast Cashew Almond cookies were mediocre. They looked well baked, as the surface was an appealing shade of brown. 

Sunfeast cashew almond cookies were crisp, which spoke of their freshness. Nut bits were sparsely added and they did not enhance the texture or bite of the cookie. 

However, when it comes to taste, the cookies were not really ‘cashew’ cookies. They had more of a butter cookie flavor. Infact, these smelled more buttery than they tasted. The sweetness was not overpowering, sugar has been added proportionately.

4. Parle 20-20 Gold Cashew Almond Cookies

Our Experience

What we liked? This was the only contender with AMPLE nut bits on top and are crisp.

What could have been better? These cookies had a super crumbly texture. Sadly, in terms of taste too, these were disappointing. We could not really taste cashew nuts, this was dominant on the flavors of milk and vanilla. What demoted the experience further was the robust presence of artificial flavors.

5. UNIBIC Cashew Badam Cookies

Our Experience

These emitted a dessert-like aroma, somewhat similar to marzipan. These had a crisp bite, perfect for dipping into warm beverages but did not taste good. Unibic cookies were TOO sweet and the flavor of nuts was not fresh. 

We also noticed a stale aftertaste like that of nut oils.
