Chips Ahoy! And Sour Patch Kids Have Teamed Up To Create The Sweetest Cookies

Mixing candy and cookies together usually creates undeniably delicious treats. But the candies that usually get mixed in with the dough are typically sweet, like chocolate chip, sugar frosting and even peanut butter. Not tangy treats like Sour Patch Kids or Skittles. But a lot of strange things are happening this year, so is the existence of the Chips Ahoy! Sour Patch Kids cookies really that shocking?

Instagram account @junkfoodleaks_ first blew the whistle about this being in the works in December 2019. This shocking development had a lot of people hitting the panic button as the combination goes against the natural order of cookie combos. But apparently, nothing in the world could’ve stopped it. Not even the pandemic. Because it’s finally here and it’s as curious as its name suggests!

? S O U R B O Y E ? @sourpatchkids: lol what if we put our candy on your cookies? @chipsahoy: ew lol gross. @sourpatchkids: haha yeah jk you're right…unless??..?? -Let me be clear. I wanted to hate these so bad. This is a concoction crafted only by those crazy enough to think that it could work. But you know what? It kinda DOES work. I don't get it. I really don't. There's the chips ahoy flavor you love. It's there. It's prominent. And then…there's sour patch kids……. works…. I'm serious. I didn't think this would be anything other than vomit in cookie form. But I like it. I actually like it. I'm ashamed that I like this Frankenstein cookie. I'm gonna keep it simple. It gets a ?6.8 ?from me. Not amazing. Not bad. But I could likely only tolerate like two at a time. Don't get me wrong: I'll get a box of these when they hit shelves next year, but I'm not gonna dunk this thing in a glass of milk…unless…?? ??????

The new Chips Ahoy! Sour Patch Kids cookies offers an interesting mix of flavors

Several snack sleuths on Instagram have discovered that the Chips Ahoy! cookies are no longer a concept but a curious reality. Needless to say, it’s caught everyone off-guard. And the reactions are pretty interesting. Some expressed their excitement towards trying the whacky cookies like @dadbodsnacks and @candyhunting. But @junkfoodbanter was more upfront with his disbelief that Chips Ahoy! actually went through with the concept.

I’m sure you’ve heard, but if you haven’t, the rumors are true. @sourpatchkids has infiltrated the @chipsahoy factory! And someone must have been falling a sleep cuz those crazy cookies are rolling out now. The official release is the beginning of May but some have spotted these in Dollar Tree’s already. Crazy right? No, not the release dates, the cookies! They’re CRAZY!! I intend to get my hands on some eventually (stupid COVID) and will review, so sit tight. It’s not like many of us should be going anywhere anyway, am I right!?!? HA! All this does is make me sad. But, YAY FOR COOKIES! I don’t care HOW crazy they are. #new things are always welcome in the beginning. . . . #soursweet #sourpatchkids #chipsahoy #cookies #newcookies #newsnacks #snacks #quarantine #covid #sour #sweet #dadbod #dadbodsnacks #instadaily #instagram #instafood #foodgasm #foodagram #f52gram

But let’s get real – trying new things at least once is what makes life exciting. So we’re more than willing to grab a pack of these off the shelf when we can and try it out to taste whether it’s a hit or miss. I mean… has Chips Ahoy! ever churned out a bad batch of cookies ever in its history? Will this break their deliciousness streak? Will the sour flavor of the candy overpower the cookie’s sweet taste? Or has Chips Ahoy! figured out how to balance them? The only way for us to find out is by taking a bite of one of these Sour Patch Kids cookies.


It’s slowly trickling into the market as we speak


“This is not your average cookie.”

We may have to wait a bit longer to solve the flavor mystery but @candyfunhouse has already sampled them. And according to the account, the Chips Ahoy! cookies comprises of the iconic chocolate chip cookie with chunks and pieces of the tangy candy mixed in. In fact, the overall look of the cookies reminds us so much of fruit cake or cookies with M&Ms, for some reason…



The sweet and sour cookie combo will officially be available nationwide by May. However, they’ve reportedly been spotted at several Dollar Tree locations. So if you’re itching to taste for yourself what @candyfunhouse is talking about, plan a trip now. Each 226g pack will set you back only $3. These cookies are marked as a limited edition offering, so you’d best grab a pack before it vanishes!
