Chips ahoy! has pulled a fan favorite from the shelves – and fans are literally crying over it.
Overall, the snack brand is one of the best known in households today.
But companies are often forced to make difficult decisions and discontinue certain products.
And that’s the case with Chips Ahoy! Brownie Chew Places.
A customer asked on
In response: Chips Ahoy! broke the news and said that the “Limited Edition” variant was “no longer available.”
And let’s just say the message wasn’t well received by the customer.
“I just fell to my knees in tears,” the brownie chewy flavor fan wrote in a reply.
While prices may vary by location, the brownie flavor was previously available at Walmart in a 9.5-ounce package for $3.99.
The cookies were described as “soft” on the outside while containing a “chewy brownie filling.”
The chewy brownie flavor contained 10 grams of added sugar per serving, palm oil, corn syrup, baking powder, artificial flavors and caramel coloring.
Walmart customers were generally positive about the discontinued product, rating it 4.1 out of five stars.
One described the product as a “soft chocolate chip cookie filled with a fudgy brownie, perfect with a cup of coffee to satisfy those sweet afternoon cravings.”
Another customer said in a positive review: “They are soft and when you lay them down.” [them] For a few seconds in the microwave they are really delicious.
While their favorite may no longer be available, some fans may fall in love with other iconic Chips Ahoy! Types of cookies.
One of them is inspired by the Hershey’s chocolate that is filled into the cookie.
The Hershey’s Chip Ahoy! Cookies sell at Walmart for $3.88 in 14.85-ounce packages.
Also, Chips Ahoy! makes a flavor that combines its cookies with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
These sell for the same price as the Hershey variety.
However, if you only want to combine brownies and cookies, you may need to use a different brand.
For example, Walmart makes turtle brownie cookies under the Marketside brand in its bakery department.
They sell for $4.98 each in six-packs of 13.5 ounces.
