A Snack In The Face Chocolate Chip Cookies

With the energy drink market being a multi-billion dollar industry, it is no surprise that many companies are starting to include caffeine in their products to get in on the action.  A small time company out of Iowa, called "A Snack in The Face", makes highly caffeinated (and delicious) baked goods.  Today I will taking on their caffeine loaded chocolate chip cookie.


The Look:  Each cookie comes individually wrapped, inside it's own little cardboard box.  On the front they have the company name and the outline of a hand with a caffeine molecule on it.  The package is simple but goes very well with the company name.  On the back you get the usual stuff like nutritional facts, an ingredient list, and a caffeine warning.  I cannot find one fault on this packaging.  They did everything right: they have a great name for the product, the caffeine content is listed, and the art work fits the package well.

Taste:  Before I give a run down on the taste, let me tell you about something that impressed me with this company.  We live in society, that most foods contain ingredient names that require a masters degree to even know what they hell they are, A Snack In The Face sticks to the basics.  Here are the ingredients inside each cookie: wheat flour, brown sugar, chocolate chips, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt, and caffeine.  Can a chocolate chip cookie get to much better than that?  
The taste of these are simply fantastic.  They managed to keep the cookie very moist and soft, without being overly soft.  On top of that, there is no hint of the 200 mg of caffeine anywhere to be found.  Not only is this one of the best caffeinated foods I have tried, but this is one of the tastiest chocolate chips cookies I have ever had.

Does It Work:  Each cookie contains 200 mg of pharmaceutical-grade caffeine.  On top of that, the entire cookie (2 servings) contains 514 calories, 22 g of fat, 232 g of sodium, 76 g of carb (48 g of sugar), 10 g of protein, and 52% your dv of iron, and even a small amount of vitamin A.  
The first time I tried a "Snack in The Face" chocolate chip cookie, I was nice and shared it with my beautiful girlfriend.  I was surprised at how effective that just half of the cookie was.  I was actually slightly wired and was filled with an impressive amount of energy.  The second time I tried one, I finished the entire cookie and I was more than just slightly wired.  To be honest, the 200 mg of caffeine and the sugar kicked my butt and had me going strong for several hours.

Overall Thoughts:  This small little company makes products that are HUGE in taste and they will give you, as promised "a snack in the face".  If you are looking for a great new way to get your caffeine fix, then I highly recommend checking out the great folks at "A Snack In The Face". If chocolate chip cookies are not your thing, they also sell brownies (review coming soon) and sugar cookies.  The prices are very reasonable and I cannot say enough how great these things taste (and work).

I wish you would expand your reviews to different areas! I know you are the caffiene-a-holic but I also know you are geeky and some gadget reviews would be awesome.

It's the right cookie if you need some energy-booster.

The brownies are awesome. Soft, moist, and delicious. However, the cookies are a rock hard brick, so Ide recommend some milk (or coffee) to soften them up a bit. Ill stick with the brownies myself.
