Merba's Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Cookies

Merba's Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Cookies

We have seen Merba’s Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Cookies a few times at the Watson’s stores, but our previous experiences with awful cookies left us with skepticism towards these less well-known brands. Well, Merba might be a popular brand overseas but locally, you can hardly find it in common supermarkets. But after seeing it time after time, we decided to give it a try.

The opening of the packaging revealed a strong hazelnut fragrance. The cookies weren’t too hard and stiff, but were towards the crumbly texture. In fact, the texture reminded us of a crispy crepe-like biscuit, which shatters into pieces upon biting into it. The cookie was decorated with big chunks of milk chocolate chips and chopped hazelnuts. The chocolate chips were soft and melts in our mouths. In contrast, the chopped hazelnuts were crunchy and tasted pretty fresh. We’re glad we bought Merba‘s after all.
