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!

Too tempting to resist!

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 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!

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.

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.
