THESE days, it seems like bigger is always better: Boxy jackets, chunky sneakers, oversized bags and yes, palm-sized cookies! Cookies are well-loved treats of all ages, as a snack, dessert or just a sweet craving. Whether it’s paired with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee, a cookie is a no-fail pick-me-up. And with larger portions’ rise to popularity, cookie lovers are spoiled to indulge—sugar and calories be damned! If you’re on the lookout for some cookies to try, here are five must-tries:
The cookies and cream cookie has a beautiful melted marshmallow right in the middle of the cookie and for those who love it bittersweet, the espresso speculoos cookie is a delight. You can get this in the regular size or in six-ouncers.

The chocolate walnut and the dark chocolate walnut are bestsellers, but the double dark chocolate and dark chocolate peanut butter are worth trying too.

For the chocolate lovers, Inglorious’ Melanie cookie has three kinds of chocolate: milk, dark, and white. If you want a little texture, the Carmel has caramel chips and cashews.
The Rich Cookies
True to its name, this one is all about sinful concoctions: the red velvet cookie has a generous chunk of cream cheese in the middle, while the triple chocolate chip cookie looks like its 40 percent batter and 60 percent chips—and that’s not a bad thing.
Jean Marie Gourmet Cookies
Why choose one when you can have all three? A sampler box has the chocolate chip, walnut and oatmeal, so you can try everything.
