Too pricey to indulge in frequently

You'll smell them before you see them. Famous Amos Cookies have a strong, fresh aroma that'll unwittingly pull you in as you're walking past. Before you know it, you're struggling between their white chip macadamia cookies or the no-nut chocolate ones.

Prices are rather hefty though. At $10.90, a mere 200g bag of sheer goodness can be easily devoured by one in a few minutes, so be sure to savour every crumb! Alternatively, you can always make a trip to JB to load more back at a cheaper price.

That distinct aroma
Overall Score 
 
3.0
Whenever I smell a very distinct aroma, I know that a Famous Amos outlet is nearby.

This is the one shop that I will turn to whenever I want to get someone something lovely. I love how the cookies are baked freshly everyday and has a nice crispy but hard texture.

The downside? It's very expensive. It is just something that I will indulge in one in a while.

I don't eat cookies that often but I always like the cookies from Famous Amos. They sell really nice cookies that are of bite size so it is easier to consume when you are on the go. Other than the normal cookies they sell, they also sell cookies that are shaped like a lollipop which are on a stick. These can be given to friends or family members as a present as it is in a nice design.

Since these cookies are made on the spot, it is really fresh and you do not have to worry that they are the cookies not sold from yesterday. The price may be a little more expensive compared to other cookies sold at other places but the taste is worth the price.

lovely but very heath cookies and brownies
Overall Score

Lovely cookies and brownies are sold at Famous Amos. The brownies are customizable, and they make unique replacements for birthday cakes.

My usual pack of freshly baked cookies would be a mix of macadamia chocolate chip cookies and macadamia white chocolate chip cookies. Although I am rarely able to tell the difference between both flavours after the mixture, since the cookie and macadamia taste covers the chocolate taste, but the feeling of having the mixture makes me feel satisfied of eating both chocolate flavours.

My friends gave me a brownie, replacing the cake, for one of my birthdays. They drew a cute face, using sweetened cream, on it. It was an interesting and memorable birthday cake, and we all enjoyed the brownie for desert too.

The cookies and brownies are quite sweet, and are not suited for those who are not fans of sweet snacks. They are rather heaty as well, and it is advisable to drink lots of cooling water after eating them. At the various Famous Amos outlets, there is rarely a queue, perhaps due to the price of the items as they are a little expensive. And I will only treat myself to this snack, once awhile, treating it like comfort food for some unhappiness that has happened.

One of the many Famous Amos’ branches in Singapore, probably the one that gave the deepest impression was the branch along the walkway in Wisma Atria, whereby the little cookie stall had this delectable rich and thick chocolate-y aroma that seeped into the passerbys respiratory passageway. It has a wide variety of small cookies and brownies, which often we ended up making hard decisions on which ones to get.

I joined the queue and one of their staff was really polite with my orders at the counter. Though the cookies might be on the higher end of the price tag as compared to other eateries and restaurants which provided a selection of their signature cookies, the taste was great, but it wasn’t what I have expected from the aroma that I’ve detected- rich, thick and chocolate-y. It is definitely different from those ready-packed Famous Amos cookies lying on the shelves of the supermarkets; it’s freshly baked and hot from the oven.

The price of a few pieces of cookies for 100g might be a put off for those who think that it might be bit expensive. Yes it is, and there are far better cookies than Famous Amos in Singapore. I hope that Famous Amos’ could be able to ensure that they are affordably priced in the future.

Whenever I walk past Famous Amos, the aroma always flow into my nasal passage and send a message to my brain, which is telling me to buy some before leaving. I heed the advice and walk to the counter with my friends. The service crews are polite and waited patiently for my order. I've chosen chocolate with macadamia nuts. When I receive my cookies, I can feel it is still slightly warm, this is how fresh the cookies are. The crunch from the cookies and the taste of chocolate makes me so happy. I can't tell the texture of the nuts as the bits are quite small and disappear quickly inside my mouth.

After three pieces, I got sick of it and stopped eating it. Probably I felt too heaty while having the cookies and I don't wish to get a sore throat from my indulgence. If the cookies are less sweetened, I will be able to pop in more pieces into my mouth. Overall, it is definitely worthy to buy a packet of 100g and share it among friends. If only the price can be lowered then everything will be perfect.
