Papa John’s is now serving up jumbo-sized cookies, dubbed the Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie. The fresh-baked new mega cookies come in a small box and are cut into 8 slices. I added one of the new cookies to my order for $5.
How Does It Taste?
I’ve seen desserts in this style before from pizza places, but this is the first time I’ve seen a big chain offer a jumbo-sized fresh baked pizza cookie. I was ordering a pizza from Papa John’s online and saw some ad that suggested I add an oversized fresh-baked cookie to my order for only $5. A big chocolate chip cookie the size of a small pizza fresh baked and delivered to my doorstep for $5? Sold.
The Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie was slightly smaller than I thought it would be, but it was still a lot of cookie. The cookie was cut into 8 slices, however, the folks back in the Papa John’s kitchen must have been busy that night, because they couldn’t even take the time to properly cut this thing down the center. This resulted in a half of the cookie slices being larger than the other.
The cookie slice was easily pulled away from the cookie. As a matter of fact, no pulling was necessary. The slice of chocolate chip cookie lifted out with no tugging whatsoever. It almost seemed as if they cooked 8 individual pie-shaped cookie slices and then stuck them in a circular pan.
The cookie itself tasted pretty good, but it’s really difficult to screw up a chocolate chip cookie. If I think back to the worst chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever had… wait… nope, I’ve never had a bad chocolate chip cookie. The chocolate chips were melted and gooey just the way I like them to be. The cookie was not fresh-out-of-the-oven hot, but it was sufficiently warm. The cookie was at a temperature where no cooling was necessary to eat it.
Texturewise, the Mega Chocoalte Chip Cookie found a happy medium between slightly crispy golden brown and soft-baked. The only thing I didn’t really like about this huge pizza-cookie was the fact that the very outer edges were pretty hard, but this might not be the case with every order of these, since I did order this pretty late at night.
Overall I really enjoyed the Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie. I’d definitely consider adding another one of these onto my future orders from Papa John’s.
The Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie from Papa John’s is an oversized, but not huge, fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie. The cookie came in a box and was cut into 8 slices. The temperature of the cookie was somewhere between warm and hot. Unsurprisingly, the cookie tasted like a fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie. I didn’t try it, but I think a scoop of vanilla ice cream over this would have been awesome. Chocolate chip cookies fans won’t be disappointed with the Mega Chocolate Chip Cookie.
What I liked: Warm and gooey, nice chocolate chip cookie taste, good amount of cookie for the money.
What I didn’t like: Outer edge was a bit hard, adding hundreds of calories to an already calorie-filled pizza meal
