Mrs. Fields has set out to change people’s perception of its seemingly ordinary chocolate chip cookie by making a *mega* version of it. Released this November, Mrs. Fields’ Mega Cookie weighs in at 5 1/2 ounces of yummy goodness, making it almost three times the size of a regular cookie from the brand. Whoa, right?
Before you let the giant cookie’s size scare you off, we’re here to tell you it’s not that intimidating. Sure, it’s the size of a small cake, but it’s totally perfect for sharing. We know because Mrs. Fields sent us a couple ahead of the surprising release, and they taste just like what you’d expect. With a super soft and chewy texture, it’s packed with lots of chocolate chips and a bold chocolate-forward flavor. It’s even tastier than the regular-sized recipe.
Mrs. Fields’ CEO, Dustin Lyman, explained how the dessert brand’s latest menu item differs from its standard fare in a statement, ultimately revealing the true motivation behind the extra large (literally four inches wide and 1 1/4 inches tall) take on a classic. “The Mega Cookie is dramatically different from our other classic treats — it’s big, bold, and incredibly decadent,” he said. “It’s our 40th Anniversary and we’re celebrating the milestone with a super-sized cookie experience just in time for the holidays.”
Seriously, what a treat! In their press release, Mrs. Fields revealed the delectable ingredients involved in creating such a ginormous cookie. The Mega Cookie, they said, is made with real butter, brown sugar, eggs, and chocolate chips. All those base ingredients combine to form that soft, brownie-like texture we experienced firsthand. If you’re feeling eager to try the Mega Cookie right this second, it’s available at any of Mrs. Fields’ 200 retail locations nationwide and will cost you about $4.
