@bwiderski Not having had either of them, I can’t say for sure, but I think these are smaller and more “fancy” than the mega-tub of TJs cookies. Also as some mentioned, pretty and “bringable” to events and as gifts (or side-gifts). Compared to “hey you’re fat enough already, a 3lb tub of cookies won’t make a difference. Merry Christmas!”
I just read the teaser email, the main page description, and all the forum comments thinking that “destrooper” was a joke because these aren’t stroopwafels. Then I actually looked at the picture and my world view shattered.
I just bought one, and I don’t know why. Perhaps a combination of pre-prandial distress, and giftability. With shipping, these are costing me 20.8¢ per cookie, a bit high, but actually much lower than some of the fancier Pepperidge Farm flavors at 56¢ apiece.
Well, Black Friday’s over early for me, having already ordered a fancy wall clock for the kitchen, a Roku for the master bedroom, and a year of Hulu at $1/month. Time for a turkey sandwich…
Received mine today and they are very good. The problem is – they need to find a better way of shipping them. Mine were all bit size as opposed to being a waffle. I guess I could use them like a graham cracker crust on a cheesecake.
