Ben’s Cookies, Mayfair, London

A good cookie, with a crisp exterior and a sugary, soft centre were a huge part of my childhood growing up. We had Mrs Higgins for that in New Zealand, but sadly most stores didn’t last and the quality became variable. Super thin cookies at Queen Street I’m looking at you. I was excited to try one of the Ben’s Cookies stores here in London, which at face value reminded me of that treasured experience. And I was plenty happy.

The cookies are sold at weight (unless doing a multi-buy) and I decided to go for the chocolate and praline cookie for something around the £1.80 mark. The chocolate on these cookies is all chunky and although super sugary, is fun and decadent. Praline was a little understated but that contrast of chewiness and bite was perfect. There’s twenty varieties of the cookies and you can bet my ambition is to give them all a good go. For old time’s sake.
