Taste test: Fudge Stripe cookies have long been a favorite, known for years as round cookies with a hole in the middle, a full coating of fudge on the bottom and stripes of fudge on top. They've even come out with Cinnamon Roll, Pumpkin Spice, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Lemon Cream Pie versions — all keeping those signature stripes. Now we're told that the Keebler Elves messed up the striping process, resulting in these cookies. The story sounds fishy, but it seems like everyone who eats cookies could stand to benefit, so we won't dwell on it.
I opened the package to find a tray containing four rows of five cookies each, and they were indeed fully coated in fudge. I grabbed one and crunched in to find a nice crunchy, crumbly feel (complete with lots of crumbs) and lots of great chocolate. There was indeed a higher proportion of chocolate than the regular Fudge Stripes, but it wasn't too much, still a great balance between the coating and the cookies. Great with cold milk!

Smell test: Good chocolate smell, on the mild side.
From the package: “There's no such thing as too much fudge. Sometimes when things don't go as planned, the result can be surprisingly delightful! Through a 'happy accident', here in the Hollow Tree™, we else completely covered some already-scrumptious Fudge Stripe™ cookies with even more rich, delicious fudge.”
