Reviewing Insomnia Cold Brew & French Toast Cookies, Dunkin’ Jelly Filled Chocolates, & More.

This snack review has Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough Bites, Starburst Swirlers Chewy Sticks, Dunkin’ Donuts Jelly Donut-Flavored Filled Chocolates, Insomnia Cookies 2023 Limited Edition Vegan White Chocolate Cold Brew Latte and French Toast Cookies, as well as their Blueberry Pancake ice cream. My favorite out of all these were in the insomnia cookies and ice cream. I expected the Starburst sticks to be more than a stick but I guess it was as advertised.


Double Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough Bites

Score: 6.5 / 10

Front box of Double Chocolate Fudge Brownie Cookie Dough Bites.

Tastes a little like brownie, it’s like a very sweet chocolate in ball form. The texture is a tad crumbly as it breaks apart quickly when you bite into it. It isn’t hard, it’s on the softer side. Despite the Cookie Dough branding on it, it isn’t at all chewy or like a their regular Cookie Dough Bites.

While the company has been around since 1997 with their original Cookie Dough Bites, I’m not sure when this version was released, although reviews date back to several years ago.


Starburst Original Swirlers Chewy Sticks

Score: 5 / 10

Front package of Starburst Original Swirlers Chewy Sticks.

Tastes identical to starbursts but in a fairly thick, stick form. They are each individually wrapped and a bit difficult to open. I expected something more or different.

Released April 2020. Found at Five Below.


Frankford Dunkin’ Donuts Jelly Donut-Flavored Filled Chocolates

Score: 7 / 10

Front package of Frankford Dunkin' Donuts Chocolates Donut-Flavored Filled Chocolates, Jelly Donut Flavored.

Very sweet. Has a sweet white chocolate-like, semi-hard shell where the inside is a sweet, artificial tasting jelly. Biting in, due to the slight hardness, it does break apart. The jelly inside tastes close to the one you’d find in their donuts but it’s just a little different.

Released August 2023. Found at Five Below.

Insomnia Cookies 2023 Limited Edition Vegan White Chocolate Cold Brew Latte and French Toast

Scores
Vegan White Chocolate Cold Brew: 6 / 10
French Toast: 7 / 10

Several Insomnia Cookies in a box including 2023 Limited Edition Vegan White Chocolate Cold Brew Latte and French Toast.

Vegan White Chocolate Cold Brew
Tastes more or less like a semi-sweet chocolatey cookie. I didn’t taste any explicit coffee or latte flavor. Texture is slightly more crumbly than their regular cookies but still holds its shape.

French Toast
Semi-soft and slightly chewy textured cookie. The taste is about as close to French toast as you can get. It has a cinnamon, bread-like taste with a hint of syrup in the background where all of it comes together resembling French toast.

These new cookies were released for a limited time August 2023 to celebrate back to school.

Insomnia Cookies 2023 Limited Edition Blueberry Pancake Ice Cream

Score: 8 / 10

Holding a cone of Insomnia Ice Cream, limited edition 2023 Blueberry Pancake.

Fairly sweet but not overly so, these tastes a lot like blueberry pancakes! You can taste the blueberry, the light buttery pancake, as well as syrup too. Mixed in are little chunks of this soft bread stuff (which is not pancake otherwise it would be too soggy) and blueberry swirls.

This new ice cream was released for a limited time August 2023 to celebrate back to school.
