When these cookies landed on my desk, I immediately was taken back to my childhood. Bahlsen Hit sandwich cookies could be found on the table at my grandparents house when I would go visit. And I’m not that young, so these cookies have been around a long time! They still taste as good as they did when I was a kid! I love cookies, so much so, that was my nickname, “Cookie” or “Cook”. I think my children have gotten my cookie loving genes!
These cookies come in a fun shaped tube package that got the attention of my youngest. “Mom, have you taken pictures of those cookies yet?” he would ask me. I think I accidentally tortured the poor little guy for maybe a week or more before I could get around to write this post! Every time he walked by the computer, he saw the cookies sitting there, staring at him, waiting to be opened. So before heading out to his brother’s hockey game, he was able to enjoy some cookies that he had so long been waiting to try!
And he loves them! “Mom! These are the best cookies ever! Where did you get them?” I am sure he says this about every cookie he eats, but it was really cute watching him finally enjoy a cookie, or two… maybe three! These cookies are pretty big sized vanilla cookies with a pack of cocoa crème filling in-between. Bahlsen suggests on their website that “dunking in milk completes the experience”. The vanilla cookies are light and crunchy and paired with the cocoa crème, it’s a tasty treat!
Even though my grandparents have passed before they could meet their great-grandchildren, a little piece of them has been passed down to them with this cookie. I told my sons that I grew up with this cookie and I remember eating them when I was their age. I am thinking that these cookies would be good around a nice fall campfire. Toast a marshmallow and place it on top! That would be delicious!
For over 125 years, the Bahlsen family has been creating these crispy biscuits and cookies. Bahlsen also supports sustainable cocoa cultivation and uses UTZ Certified Cocoa.
In one of the Mayan languages the word “UTZ” means “good”.
UTZ Certified is a program and a quality seal for the sustainable cultivation of coffee, cocoa and tea. Sustainable agriculture supports farmers, workers and their families in reaching their objectives and at the same time contributes to the protection of our natural resources – now and in the future.
For the cultivation of sustainable, certified cocoa, the cocoa farmers are trained by UTZ Certified in the areas of business administration, social working conditions and environmental management. This then helps them to work more successfully, attain higher yields, and increase the standard of living for the whole family.
Get yourself a package of Bahlsen Hit cookies and enjoy! There’s plenty in the package to share – or uh, nibble, nibble upon!
