The menu lists several types of cookies, but they seemed to never have any. I think I stopped in at least 5 times when they were out. Finally, one time they had cookies, but only one type: snickerdoodles. Not what I'd normally pick. The cookies were all individually wrapped in saran wrap. They didn't look particularly good, but looks can be deceiving, as I learned from the delicious cookies from Quiznos, and they were free after all.
The menu said the cookies were $1.50, but the sign located in front of them said $1.65. I was charged $1.65 + tax. They should update their menu! (This was on both the physical menu in the store, and online).
Anyway, after the snickerdoodle, I still went back a few more times to try other types, but again, they were always out. I finally asked when they expected to have cookies, and the staff member told me that they make a big batch early in the week, and just sell them until the run out. I was always going in on Saturdays and Sundays, and they'd long since run out. This also explains why they tasted stale and not fresh ... they weren't!
After that, I did try visiting earlier in the week, but still no cookies. A few times, I saw little cheesecake bites. But they had flies swarming around them and sitting on them, and they were not covered in any way. Foolishly, I eventually tried them too.
Meh. Won't be going back.
|Raspberry Cheesecake Bite. $0.95.|
I didn't get one on my first several visits when I saw the flies swarming around them, but I was so sick of being disappointed by the lack of cookies that I finally tried one. I didn't have high hopes, but I think I still haven't gotten it through my head that cheesecake can be horrible. Even after the bad one from Jack In The Box, I still think, "hey, it is cheesecake, how bad can it be?"
Answer? This was far worse than the Jack In The Box one. That one at least had a nice consistency.
There was a little graham cracker crumble base, unremarkable. Then, the cheesecake. It had the worst mouthfeel of perhaps anything I've ever tried. I can't even describe it. It was like ... smooth paste? Not good. And it didn't taste anything like cream cheese or cheesecake. On top was a little bit of raspberry swirl, which did indeed taste like raspberry. It was the only redeeming factor.
I passed this off to Ojan, without warning him that it was horrible. He thought it was so bad that he spit it out.
Would never, ever get again. $0.95 seemed like a good price for a little cheesecake bite, but ugh. No.
