Product of the day: The Toddy Cookie

PRAISE to the kiosco dioses, because Toddy Cookies have arrived. Sweeping the supermercado and chino shelves, this crack-like cookie is one of the best (and worst) things that has ever happened to the cookie loving porteño world. Sweet, crunchy, crackity, chocolatey, chipity, put on your cookie pants because it’s time to go loco for the holy Toddy cookie.

So why are these chemical-packed additive-stacked grocery store cookies such hot shit? A glorified Chips Ahoy, the junk food snacks scene has stepped it up a notch, finally providing a good tasting option beyond the bullshit bizcochos and ghastly galletitas.

There should be a warning that comes on the package of these cookies: highly addictive, after you finish with one cookie, your hand will automatically want to grab another, making it virtually impossible to show any cookie restraint. Just after a few short months on the cookie market, this marketing experiment became all the rage – with fans erupting over the sweet treat and Toddy cookies exploding nation wide.

It’s like Willy Wonka and the fucking golden ticket, kiosco windows advertising they are in stock with Toddy.

The packaging doesn’t lie, it really is the PERFECT combination of cookie and chocolate. If you aren’t aware of Toddy cookies, I want to apologize right now for making you hooked.

And Ohhhhh SNAP. Toddy + Chungo worlds have collided as the ultimate ice cream sandwich dream team comes together to create TODDY LATTO. Hallelujah, life is now complete. My mind has officially been snowblown.

 

*Note: these cookies are banging for local supermarket standards, amongst a sea of subpar processed junk. But Sugar and Spice will still always reign supreme in the sweet world of Buenos Aires cookies.

    I met them a few time ago, when my little daughter left a half packet inside the microwave (well….we use the microwave oven for storing bread, cookies and anything of the kind!). And i swear that these cookies are really addictive, there is an alchemy on the crispy and cracky cookie that made me to eat them breathlesly until empty…..ahhhhhhhh, fortunately I have a kiosk close to my house to restore the faulty Toddy, eating another half package in order to leave it in the M.O. as if nothing has happened!..

    Sweet Lord, I just had a few (and by ‘a few’ I mean like ten) jaja! I felt so fat as my hand reached for yet another cookie. They are definitely addictive. Seriously. Somebody stop this.

    Todavía no las probé, pero todo el mundo que conozco que sí, dicen que son adictivas. Eso sí, me ofendo con eso de ghastly galletitas. Más respeto con las chocolinas y las lincoln, estarán llenas de químicos pero son ricas! Dicho esto, es verdad que la industria de la galletita en Argentina ha decaído. Cuando era chico las surtido bagley eran ricas y teníamos las Melba que le rompían el orto a las Oreo, pero mal y las manon que no solo eran ricas sino que iban perfecto a modo de sandwich con dulce de leche en el medio. Igual ahora casi ni consumo esas cosas, pero las recuerdo con cariño.

    I almost peed with laughter reading your post about T.O.D.D.Y. My friends and I and renamed them ‘GimmieanotherfuckingToddy’. I have been witness to TODDY rage and have spent vast sums of money on second jumbo packets of ToDDY for said friends. I think they should really carry a warning on the packet that “one purchase just isn’t enough” and ‘be sure to sneak a few before sharing or else satisfaction will NOT occur!’. Man they are hard not to eat. It is truly terrifying to be left in the same room as a freshly poured bowl, i defy anyone who can stand not woolfing down at least 5 before your friends has kindly returned from the kitchen with a handwhisked latte. Or another packet warning could read something like ‘TODDY can cause mild saddle-bags to occur on both men and women’ but that is just another in the list of hazards that I’ll keep for my yoga buddies only.
    Thanks for daring to crack open of BA society’s most deliciously chubbifying taboo’s !
    Ugh my stomach is literally rumbling now.

      hmm, so the package DOES lie! It should be corrected to “the PERFECT combination of cookie and artificially flavored hydrogenated oil!”

        They also use unmodified chocolate. I guess they are sneaky that way. Some of the American brands have other sneaky ways of making the ingredients list a bit harder to read. Like, they will separate the different types of sugars so that “sugar” does not shoot up to the top of the ingredient´s list. That one I saw on a very popular American brand cookie that you can find in the supermarkets these days….
