During the last few months of 2019, there was a growing interest in cookies, both in online and in-store brands. And who could resist freshly baked warm cookies that were crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and filled with a wide variety of chocolates, nuts, and toppings?
Not us, that’s for sure.
That’s why an example of a cookie brand that got our attention is called Ben’s Cookies, and ICYMI, they’re here in the Philippines!
Founded by cookery writer Helge Rubenstein, Ben’s Cookies was a testament of love to her son Ben. Her homemade cookies eventually became so popular that she made it into the brand we know and love today— complete with the logo drawn by her good friend Quentin Blake (illustrator of Roald Dahl’s book “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”).
Even until now, the recipe remains unchanged. And Ben’s Cookies are all guaranteed fresh. That means that their cookies are always baked fresh— made with dough that’s shipped from London— to ensure a consistent soft dough. And what sets Ben’s Cookies apart from other brands? They use chocolate chunks for their cookie creations. So each bite gives you rich, chocolatey goodness ever time.
To date, there are 14 flavors included in their roster for the Philippine market. These include classics like Dark Chocolate Chunk, Milk Chocolate Chunk, Lemon, Oatmeal Raisin, and White Chocolate Chunk, along with extra chocolatey choices like their Double Chocolate Chunk, Double Chocolate & Nut, and Triple Chocolate Chunk. Premium flavors, on the other hand, include their Orange & Milk Chocolate Chunk, White Chocolate Chunk & Macadamia, Praline & Milk Chocolate Chunk, Cranberry & White Chocolate Chunk, Peanut & Milk Chocolate Chunk, Fruit & Nut. But don’t you worry— no matter which flavor you choose, they all come with the same price: P90 apiece, P450 for 5 pieces (with 2 extra cookies free) or P900 for 10 pieces (with 5 extra cookies free).
But wait— there’s more. Ben’s Cookies now offers Gelato ice cream to go with their cookies! It’s a cool add-on that provides a contrast to your warm cookie. It’s rich and thick, sweet and flavorful— freshly churned— and with 6 flavors to choose from! These include Dark Chocolate with Dark Chocolate Cookies, Matcha with White Chocolate Cookies, Vanilla with Double Chocolate Cookies, Black Sesame, Strawberry, or Capuccino.
Enjoy a single scoop for P129, a double scoop for P199, or you can even pair your Gelato with a cookie for just P180 if single scoop and P240 if double scoop. They even serve freshly brewed coffee for P95 a cup, and should you want your cookies without having to leave your home or office, you’ll be happy to know that they deliver too!
Ben’s Cookies has branches in the Podium, SM Megamall, and recently in SM Mall of Asia.
