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!

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.
