Best Cheap Chocolate Chip Cookies
Published on By Gina Martinez
Chocolate chip cookies, allegedly invented by accident more than 75 years ago, are now the most popular variety in America. There's no shortage of brands and variations to choose among. As shoppers know all too well, Nabisco and Keebler have a lock on the snack aisle in most grocery stores. Their cheap chocolate chip cookies compete against other stalwarts such as Famous Amos, Pepperidge Farm, and Entenmann's, which tend to have slightly higher prices. Many retail chains also stock chocolate chip cookies under their own private labels and some bake up batches right in the store. Meanwhile, at artisanal bakeries and gourmet markets, a single cookie might cost more than an entire package of supermarket treats.

Nabisco's traditional Chips Ahoy cookies are increasingly subject to add-in innovations, from white fudge to "candy blasts," but these thin, crisp exemplars remain a satisfying companion to a glass of milk.
Nabisco Chips Ahoy Chewy Review
Chips Ahoy Chewy cookies garner praise for their moist texture and abundance of semisweet chocolate chips, although some reviewers deem them mushy. Try microwaving them or pairing with ice cream.
Market Pantry Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies Review
These soft Target-brand cookies left the tasting panel disappointed with their synthetic appearance and taste. The price tag may be tempting, but testers found the cookies oily and bland.
Keebler Soft Batch Review
These chewy Keebler cookies claim some admirers, but most reviewers are put off by the taste and unpleasantly spongy texture. There aren't enough chips per cookie, and the chocolate tastes artificial.
