Selma’s cookies are omnipresent in Disney Theme Parks. You’ll find them branded as Minnie’s Bake Shop cookies (usually individually sold), and you’ll also find them in the bakery counters at most Disney bakeries (including Main Street Bakery, Frontierland’s Prairie Outpost and Supply, Sweet Spells in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and more). So I figured I should review one, even though it’s not specifically made by Disney chefs…
At first, I was highly skeptical. I mean — these are often pre-packaged! They’re not necessarily “fresh made” that day, right? But, I have to admit, once I tasted this chocolate chip peanut butter cookie, I wouldn’t have cared if it had been made the night before, the week before, or the year before!
It might be pre-packaged, but this stuff is awesome! I have no idea what the story is on preservatives here, but the HUGE, soft cookie is extremely moist and full of flavor. There’s nothing dry, crispy, or dull about this.
And I loved the giant peanut butter and chocolate chunks all throughout the cookie. They added tons of flavor without being “crunchy” the way some chocolate chunks can get (you know what I mean — those cheap, chalky chocolate chips that have zero flavor and only server to annoy the consumer?). Nope — everything works very well in this cookie.
So, I must admit that I have no qualms about this cookie — or the line of baked goods that Selma’s creating for Disney parks. I’d gladly go back and sample several other flavors the next time my sweet tooth is ready to take on a challenge!!
