Every time I pass by Famous Amos, I cannot help but feel lured by its aromatic scent of freshly baked cookies (there is ALWAYS this smell!), that they even label their ovens with a sign "free smells", clearly a good ploy to "seduce" people into purchasing their cookies. If you give in to temptation, there are no regrets, however, as the cookies taste just as good as they smell (or even better). On top of the wide variety they offer you, all their cookies are simply to-die-for. Every flavor gives you a whole different experience that yet leaves you with the same lasting and satisfying impression. Their cookies are so perfectly baked that they are crunchy yet melt-in-the-mouth.

If you get the chocolate chips, they taste like high-quality ingredients and certainly makes you feel like your money was worth the "top grade" chocolate. If you get the one with macadamias, you will find its crunchiness perfectly complimenting the excellent cookie.

Overall, Famous Amos has the best cookies ever.

Famous Amos 's baked goodies are just one of my favourites ! Be it their cookies, their muffins and their brownies, oh my gosh, they are all such a delight! I have no idea what they did to the batter but to me, their baked goodies have this distinctive taste that totally differs from the others. It almost seem as though that they are ''branded products". I mean not only they taste excellent, they are actually quite pricey and for that, I usually get the smallest pack which is at 100g and it costs me around $5 ? Nevertheless, I think its worth every penny!

The usual choices for me would normally be the Chocolate Chip and Pecan Bite-Size Cookies as well as the Rocky Road Chocolate Muffin or Chocolate Chip Brownie with Macadamia Nut. The Chocolate Chip and Pecan bite-sized cookies are just simply rich and sweet. Oh, and yes, definitely, crunchy! The Rocky Road Chocolate Muffin is basically a huge chocolaty muffin with toasted walnuts as toppings and they are so moist ! It is rather filling, so I guess its best if you share it with someone because you won't be able to finish it by yourself. Last but not least, the Chocolate Chip Brownie with Macadamia Nut, a little clingy on the tongue, suitable for all the chocolate lovers out there. Rich with chocolate, you can literally feel the chocolate melt in your mouth and the Macadamia Nuts add the perfect crunch to the brownies with every bite. Simply, scrumptious in satisfying your sweet tooth! A must try !

Famous Amos cookies are, as the name suggests, famous; famous for its delectable taste, rich chocolate scent, as well as its relatively high price. The cookies are crunchier than other cookies, relatively hard, but nevertheless delicious. Their double chocolate chip is a must-try for chocolate lovers, because they are generous with the chocolates. The chocolate with macadamia nuts is a perfect mix between the chocolates and nuts, making the taste of the cookie more balanced and not as inclined towards the sweet side.

If you have seen the packet of cookies sold in snack shops or supermarkets, the taste of the freshly baked cookies are very different from the packed ones. The cookies are best eaten fresh, even if they are not warm. It is as if freshness itself is a taste that we are able to feel. The packed ones do not taste as nice, but that is probably the reason why it is much more affordable.

As you might have seen, the price of 100g ranges from about $6-8, which is considered to be relatively expensive for that amount. However, as an occasional indulgence, it is definitely worth the price. Be prepared to spend more, as it is hard to stop yourself from wanting more!

Now (obviously) the title is a joke, but honestly the first thing you will notice upon coming near a Famous Amos store, is the aroma. It fills your nostrils, overpowering your senses. As you search for the source, you zoom in on the Famous Amos logo. Then you start moving slowly towards it, the scent grows stronger and stronger until you reach the counter. That's what happens to me every time I get near a Famous Amos store.

Do not be fooled by the price. This is good value for money. Once you bite into the cookie, you will realise that it was worth every cent. My personal favourite, is the one with Chocolate Chip and Cashew nuts. Both fillings compliment each other very well but if that does not suit you, worry not. There are plenty of other choices for you to select from.

If you ever see a Famous Amos store, don't think. Buy first, regret later. Although if you actually tasted the cookie, you'd agree with me there is nothing to regret.

Famous Amos has always been my favourite brand for cookies since young! Without fail, my family would buy me a heart-shaped cookie from the store and present it to me as my birthday cake annually. Having said that, Famous Amos provides its consumers with a wide array of 'packages' that are specially done for special occasions such as birthdays or even Valentine's Day.

Being a huge Famous Amos cookie lover, I never fail to forget to purchase at least a 100 grams of No Nut Chocolate Chip back home. Whenever I go shopping at Wisma Atria, its fragrance always lures me to its store successfully. Seeing all those freshly baked cookies, I can't resist but to give in and purchase a packet to enjoy the goodness!

Because of how expensive it is, as much as I am tempted to get these little cookies and experience a little of heaven, I would get away from the store as fast as I can, stepping out of the zone where the air is filled with the aroma of the cookies.

It was like that, till the moment my brother brought it home, and all hells broke loose. He bought the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts cookies and I was so addicted to it. I don't even need to control my hands to pop it into my mind, it just happened. Then my mom joined in and we had a cookie fight all together, not to mention my brother's involvement in it. Nevertheless, it finished in a jiffy, and the next day I head down to the store and get another 200g of it which amounts to around $11. It is quite expensive considering how fast it finishes, blame it on the bite-size cookies that makes it so easy to keep popping into your mouth.

Needless to say, another cookie war broke out and this always happens whenever Famous Amos got home. Another one of my favourite is the chocolate chip cookies that is equally delicious. It isn't as sweet as the white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts cookies, but equally good. Once in a while, I would get Famous Amos to share with the family, it's another kind of family bonding.

If you are wanting to try new flavours but not sure if you would like it, try asking the staff to test try the cookies, the staff are quite generous in this aspect to let you try out the flavours!

Famous Amos cookies are one of the best out there. They're crunchy, they have an delicious aroma, and boy do they taste good. Take one bite and you'll find it difficult to stop your hands from taking another, and another, and another. My personal favourite is No Nut Chocolate Chip.

People who prefer chewy cookies might not fancy the crunchy Famous Amos cookies, but they are still worth a try - you might just change your mind about what you prefer! One downside is the price of the cookies, but if you make a trip down to Malaysia, you'll find that the price is almost halved as compared to Singapore.

Also, this may shock you, but from what I heard, the distinct Famous Amos smell you never miss out whenever you pass by a store is actually a marketing gimmick. The aroma is deliberately made so strong to attract customers. It sure has worked!

We all know their iconic smell. The tendrils of the scent of freshly baked, chocolate chip cookies waft into your nostrils and wrap around you, pulling your helpless, salivating, body towards their store. Just me?

I jokingly refer to Famous Amos cookies as ‘atas’ cookies among my friends, because boy, are they expensive. I usually end up at Subway whenever I need a strong dose of cookies, but Subway’s soft cookies are no replacement for Famous Amos’s crunchy, crumbly cookies. If my cravings hit on days when I feel particularly rich, a.k.a at the start of my allowance, I’d usually get 100g of Chocolate Chip and Pecan - the nuts just add to the crunchy goodness.

Instead of Chips Ahoy, I usually get Famous Amos in NTUCs too. Though not freshly baked, it still tastes as good, and is definitely a worthy substitute nonetheless!

How do their cookies smell sooooo goooood? I find it extremely difficult to stop myself from buying a bag of cookies whenever I walk past one of their outlets. The distinct aroma of their cookies is sure to tempt ANYBODY, whether they eventually give in or not.

My favourite cookie flavour is the White Chocolate Chip. Even as I'm typing this, I can see the cookies vividly in my mind and my craving is getting stronger by the millisecond. I highly recommend their cookies to everybody, young and old. They will delight you. For sure.

One thing that stops me from getting their cookies as often as I would like, is the price. I don't remember exactly, but a 100g bag can cost about $4 to $5. Having said this, perhaps their cookies can be reserved for special occasions, as gifts to friends, or as a once-in-a-while reward to yourself.

Famous Amos were the first fresh baked cookies that i purchased many years ago. Till now, the whiff of fresh baked cookies still overwhelmed me everytime i passed by the outlet at Jurong Point and i cannot stop myself from getting some to go.

My personal favourites are those with Macadamia nuts as i find that the choc taste blends very nicely with the Macadamia nuts. The freshness of the cookies is probably the best selling point of this brand. Although i can get Famous Amos from supermarkets, my perception is that those are simply factory made and have tons of preservatives in them. But buying them right of the oven, well that is a totally "fresh" experience.

The service staff at the branch is also great and often provided friendly service with great smiles on their faces. In terms of the value, well, i do wish that it was cheaper but for the occasional indulgence, the price is still worth it.

But i think one thing to note is that as i get older, my taste buds has start to change and the sweetness of the cookies seems to be getting too strong for me and the kilos are building up. But again for the occasional indulgence, well, what's a few more kilometres of running for the great taste of famous amos :)
