Welcome to day 6 of Tag Sale Tastes’ Pumpkinpalooza!
Today I sampled Pepperidge Farm Limited Edition Pumpkin Cheesecake Soft Dessert Cookies:
The ingredient list confirms that there is pumpkin in these cookies somewhere. Cheesecake is dubious.
And here’s the cookies:
When Pepperidge Farm describes these as “soft,” they aren’t kidding. These cake-like confections are so soft that they practically fall apart in your hand, almost as if the Houston humidity got to them before I did. I don’t know what possessed them to call the white chips “cheesecake” — they don’t taste like any cheesecake I’ve ever had. A more appropriate name for these cookies would have been Fall Apart Pumpkin Cookies with White Chips. They didn’t taste bad–not too sweet–and thankfully didn’t have any artificial pumpkin spice flavoring. On the other hand, you won’t have to lock the cookie jar to keep your family from polishing them off.
