Today I've got another dilemma for you.... How many of you are cookie eaters? If you like cookies, then I'm sure you've had the chance to sample one or two at Subway. What about Doubletree Hotels? Have you tried their cookies?
This past week I found myself in a position to enjoy cookies from both Subway and Doubletree. So out of curiosity, I decided to check out the details. I couldn't find a comparison for these cookies on the "Eat This Not That!" site. But for other cookies, follow the link.
So I decided to do my own research. Here's what I found:
Subway Cookies- Last week I went for the three for $0.99 special. I opted for one of each of the CHOCOLATE CHUNK, WHITE CHIP MACADAMIA NUT, and PEANUT BUTTER. Believe it or not, I only ate the Chocolate Chunk. I may get around to the others later. (smile) But for now, I'll just compare the Chocolate Chunk to the Doubletree Cookie.

Now for some more news. The Subway cookies weigh in at about 1.5 ounces while the Doubletree cookies tip the scale at close to 2.3 ounces. So the DT cookie is a bit larger.
If you look at the numbers and you compare one cookie to one cookie, it appears that the Subway cookie would be the best bet.
Guess what? You're probably right but I'm going for the Doubletree Cookie every time! They are absolutely delicious! Made with Ghirardelli chocolate chips and walnuts, I think they are scrumptious. I'll be happy to run a few extra miles or spend some extra time in the gym but keep those warm cookies coming!
Perhaps it's the special chocolate, or the walnuts, butter, or the cinnamon. But I love them! Good thing I only have them about twice a year. Unfortunately, I've just located a recipe on line. I think I'll try to make a batch. If you like em too..... Here's the link for the recipe: Doubletree Cookie Recipe.
I'm off to the gym!
