World of Snacks is on a mission to locate the best snacks in the world. So far we have reviewed cookies, cakes, chips, chocolates, and candies from 34 different countries. At the beginning of this year we started selling snacks from England quickly followed by American, German, and Mexican Snacks. Each month this year we are going to expand ourinternational snack store to include a new country and their best items. For our review today we are comparing two of the best chocolate chips cookies in the world, well at least two of the best sellers.
All Americans should be familiar with Nabisco Chips Ahoy. Released in 1963, this much loved snack is the bestselling chocolate chip cookie in the country. In fact only one cookie sells more than Chips Ahoy, and that is the king of American cookies, Oreo. Just like Oreo, there are a wide range of version in and outside of the United States. The chocolate chips cookie we are using in our taste test is the classic, original Chips Ahoy.
The competitor for our early claim to the world’s best chocolate chip cookie title is the Mexican Chokis by Gamesa. Gamesa, like Nabisco, is a long established brand. In fact, the original Gamesa brand is much older and was started in 1921. Just like the American Chips Ahoy Cookie, Gamesa Chokis is the bestselling chocolate chip cookie in its home country of Mexico. So although we love home-made and a variety of other chocolate chip cookies, these are the most purchased in North America.
For our comparison of American Chips Ahoy VS Mexican Chokis we did a non-blind taste test with 7 US adult males aged 25-35. Several of the testers have been involved in other comparisons taste tests including our article on Whoppers VS Maltesers. Being I am familiar with the preferences of most of the tasters I thought I had a decent idea on how the results would turn out. I was wrong! We’ve been at this for about a year and a half and not once have we had a 100% unanimous result on a comparison (until now). All of our testers hands down preferred the Mexican Chokis over the American Chips Ahoy.
So why are Mexican Chokis the best tasting, bestselling chocolate chip cookie in North America? Multiple reviewers claimed that the Chokis tasted more like a home-made chocolate chip cookie. They were crunchier, sweeter, and seemed to be fresher. The main complaint with Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookie was they tasted too processed, something that we hear often with American snacks.
Do we dare claim the Gamesa Chokis to be the best chocolate chip cookie in the world? Not yet, so far we are confident that it’s the best massively produced chocolate chip cookie in either Mexico or the United States. We have yet to review any chocolate chip cookies from Canada, so we are not sure if it’s really even the best in North America just yet. We aim to find out though! If there is a chocolate chip cookie in North American that you prefer, be sure to comment below. If you’d like to compare American Chips Ahoy VS Mexican Chokis on your own, we do offer both for sale here in the US with international shipping. As always, keep on snacking world!
