The Starbuck has launched its Chinese New Year cookies and I decided to sample their cookies. There are 3 types of cookies, namely Kumquat cookie, sesame pineapple cookie and pumpkin seed and kumquat cookie. Each cookie comes in different colour packaging, red, orange and burgundy red. Each box comes with 10 cookies. The slightly expensive cookie is the sesame pineapple cookie costs at $16.80 while the other 2 cookies cost $15.80. On average basis, each cookie costs $1.60. The sampling coo
The sampling cookies are not displayed on the store but they can be sampled upon request. I approached the crew . The crew was very polite. Not only that, the crew was generous to offer me the full size cookies.
In the store, I could only taste 2 flavours. They were sesame pineapple cookie and kumquat cookie. Both cookie has the size of $1 coin and thick of 1 cm. The sesame pineapple was coated with black and white sesame seed outside and wrapped with pineapple filling. The pineapple filling was still young and did not add must colouring. The pineapple cookie did not have must flour coating so I was consuming sesame seeds and pineapple filling. As I bite the cookie, the sesame seed crust was still crispy. This combination of pineapple cookie was unique.
The next flavor which I had tried was the kumquat cookie. It was the original shortbread cookie but it has citrus peel. As I bite the cookie, I tasted the rich tangerine. The cookie was not too rich in butter flavor.
Surprisingly, when I asked for the last flavour which was the pumpkin seed and kumquat cookie, the crew was not able to offer me as they did not have the sample in the store. I decided to move to other outlet and ask, still there was no store. I have left my contact with one of the branch manager store and hope I could try the last flavour.
Between the 2 cookies, I gave both flavour equal ranking. I like the 2 cookies.
