Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Burton's Maryland Cookies White Chocolate Confirmed sighting: Burton's Maryland Cookies White Chocolate
Posted: 19:39 Fri 03-Mar-2006. Price: 65p. Location: Bog standard food and wine shop in Leytonstone. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Jack Malvern" reports: My ability to eat a whole packet of Maryland Cookies in a single sitting expired at about the same time as my NUS card and student discount at Thresher, but this white chocolate variant is certainly tempting. Maryland has long been among the ruling elite of the non-wrapped biscuit world, suiting both the dunking and non-dunking communities with its chocolate-studded crumbliness. (Serious dunkers would point out that they are better to dunk in milk than tea, since they have a tendency to fall apart in hot drinks.) This version, unsurprisingly, replaces the dark chocolate chips with white. It doesn't radically change the flavour of the biscuit, so I would put this as the second best in the Maryland dynasty behind the caramel flavour. Well worth a nibble, though. (Slightly interesting fact: Maryland Cookies are not sold in Maryland, although Burton's Foods claims that the recipe was brought to Britain in 1956.)

...I too have seen these promoted as "New" recently, though they're clearly just another variant on Maryland's White Choc and Strawberry or Triple Choc themes. While, in other chocolatey chunks, Merba Rainbow Cookies also seem to be popping up a lot nowadays (eg 62p/ 150g in Camden Morrisons) - "Even the kids like 'em!" proclaims the packaging, no doubt to the relief of parents worried that their children somehow wouldn't be tempted by biscuits literally chock-a-block with what appear to be low-budget Mini Smarties.

Comment: Maryland are mostly rubbish. The only ones I liked were white choc and strawberry and the toffee apple flavours. They are good for dunking though I must admit.

Comment: Another new variant is the chocolate fudge brownie ones with pieces of real fudge in. Very nice!

Comment: Real fudge eh? As in the soft or crumbly variety?

Comment: Now that will lead to a tablet/fudge debate as in Scotland fudge is soft whereas tablet is crumbly.
