Hi guys, today we have another tasty treat for (our Tasty Time) snack review!
While I was out grocery shopping this last week I picked up a container of Grissom’s Candy Bite Cookies. I was drawn in by the brightly colored chocolate candies covering the majority of the cookie tops, which you’ll see in just a moment!
Knowing already what a big sweet tooth James and I both have (plus a love of cookies in general), I wanted to test these out.
What Are Grissom’s Candy Bite Cookies?
Grissom’s Candy Bite Cookies are a colorful, childlike spectacle of a cookie. If I were a kid again, these would be the ones I begged for based on appearances alone!
These cookies are a batch of chocolate chip base adorned with bright, candy coated chocolate M&M-like pieces.
With over a dozen on them on each cookie, they cover the entire cookie top and ensure you get one in your mouth with every bite.
How Are They?
This is one of those foods where what you see is what you get.
The cookies themselves come in a plastic container that doesn’t leave much to the imagination in terms of appearances, but certainly can get your taste buds tingling as you already know what to expect!
The cookie part itself is similar to a regular sugar cookie, which is soft and chewy.
Meanwhile, the candy-coated chocolate pieces are a bit thicker than regular M&Ms, that starts to melt in your mouth a bit if you keep them for too long without chewing.
So, how does it hold up?
Overall we both thought that they really weren’t something we were all too blown away by. They definitely taste like a cookie with chocolate pieces, and we do usually enjoy these. However, there was just something a little off about the taste of these that didn’t really hit home for us flavor wise.
We’ll share a bit more details in our ratings section.

For a final analysis, I’ll share each one of our thoughts that we wrote down while trying Grissom’s Candy Bite Cookies!
To start this off, I want to say that I am a huge lover of plain chocolate chip cookies.
When I see a cookie like this one (with the bits on top), I usually go for the chocolate pieces first. Then, I take a bite of the cookie part separately.
In this case the chocolate was so bitter to me that I ended up leaving most of the chocolate in the container.
I’m also someone that is a dunker when it comes to cookies, and although there was a slightly off taste to the cookie base itself, it was a perfectly fine dunkable cookie perfect for milk, coffee, and tea.
At first these cookies looked amazing, but the coating on the chocolate pieces falls apart quickly. The cookies have a nice visual appeal, but the fact that the coating falls off so fast will make them less visually appealing over time, especially if you are moving them around a lot.
There are 12 in a container, which makes them a colorful choice for office parties or small get-togethers.
The sweetest thing about these cookies were the chocolate candy pieces themselves, though still noticeably less sweet than M&Ms.
On bites where pieces had fallen off had a strong taste of something earthy resembling wheat or oats. As just mentioned, these would be alright to bring to an office party or kids birthday, but I’m not so sure if it is something I would want to eat many of in a row. They looked a lot better than they tasted, for sure.
Overall, we both thought they were not that good and didn’t stand out too much. I would buy them in a pinch if need be for a gathering but I don’t think I personally will be picking up this flavor of Grissom’s cookies again anytime soon, if other options were available to me.
