Chocolate, nutty, and fruity. But cheesy? Nah! That’s something that we don’t associate with cookies.

Amul Cheese Cookies – Detailed Review

|Shelf Life||Six months|
These cookies feature premium packaging. The glossy black wrapper looks plush but creates some hindrance as we tried to read the labels.
The cookies are placed in a tray. A 50-gram pack holds six cookies.
Visually, the cookies have a well-baked, wheatish brown appearance. They are quite identical in terms of size and thickness. As seen in the images, these are thick and chunky.
They emit a bold cheesy aroma, and undernotes of a rich buttery aroma were noticed too.
Texture- Fresh and crispy! The cookies seem well-baked and have a pronounced bite. Additionally, the buttery mouthfeel had us going back for seconds.
Taste- The primary variant of cheese used in these cookies is Cheddar. It is a known fact that the more aged the cheese, the more intense and sharp are the flavors.
The characteristic sharpness and pungency of cheese were tasted, although only mildly. As compared to aged cheddar, the younger counterpart has a milder, creamier flavor. The cheese flavor in these cookies is not overwhelming, so the slightly sweet-salty flavors marry each other perfectly. We liked how these cookies have a uniform taste throughout. The cheese has been carefully folded into the flour-butter-sugar dough.
