Hello and welcome to National Sandwich Day, Executive Editor Laneia’s favorite holiday. This year we’re taking an avant-garde approach to the holiday, because in 2013, Laneia published a recipe for Apple Damn Sandwiches and thus our Sandwich Beat peak had been reached, and our work here was done.
Still though: we really do love sandwiches.
On another note, there is a whole range of cookie items also known as “sandwiches.” How about that? That’s what we’re ranking today. Before we get into this, I would like to say that aforementioned Laneia had a LOT of opinions about this list I was making. Specifically, she was very concerned when I suggested the inclusion of several types of cookies that she identified as “pies.” For example: Moon Pies, Oatmeal Creme Pies. So if you want to know why those aren’t on this list, you’ll have to @-reply Laneia.
The opinions of my workmates are also included in chat format.
22. Snackwells Creme Sandwich Cookies
I’m perpetually confused regarding the fact that it’s not 2003 anymore and yet, Snackwell’s still exists. Listen. Just treat yourself to an Oreo.
21. Pumpkin Spice Oreos
Even though Original Recipe Oreos themselves and all varieties therein appear later in this list, I needed to take a special time out to warn you against purchasing these cookies. You might as well just put on a sheet mask and watch a Tori Spelling Christmas special.
20. Swedish Fish Oreos
Again — we’ll get to the whole OREO Family later, but these deserved a special mention for AUDACITY.
Erin: what of the swedish fish oreos
Rachel: we rebuke swedish fish oreos
Laneia: omg riese add that to my screed please
Riese: i will
Laneia: totally forgot about that fuckshit
Rachel: swedish fish oreos are far from the light of heaven
Erin: They are… So dark
Rachel: they dwell in a place of sin
19. Sugar Wafers
Rachel: Unsolicited opinion: these cookies are bullshit
Riese: i think those are punishment cookies
Alaina: co-signing rachel’s distaste of sugar wafers
Laneia: sugar wafers are southern grandpa cookies
Stef: sugar wafers are basically lincoln logs, nobody eats those even if they’re desperate
Carmen: i eat sugar wafers
i love them
Mey: Those are my dads favorite cookie
Stef: your dad is a lie
Mey: Stef I’ll tell my dad you said that
Stef: you are also a lie
wait is carmen your dad
Several hours later, Kaelyn piped in to note, “i also like sugar wafers, cardboard sugar cookies of my heart, and their close cousin Goya wafer cookies. no shame.” Kaelyn just had a baby, so, I guess she can eat whatever she wants.
18. Duplex Sandwich Cremes
I used to eat little packages of these from the local bodega every single day, and now I have to spend the rest of my life repenting for what I have done.
17. El Fudge Cookies
Riese: Does anyone have feelings about EL Fudge cookies
Laneia: EL fudge is strictly for children, as no adult can actually eat them with any dignity or hope for their future
Erin: laneia’s right, yet again
Everybody gets so excited about Milanos as if you cannot purchase Milanos at the outlet mall. Milanos are a fraud. Milanos are soft-ish hockey pucks. The ratio of cookie to filling is all wrong. Much like heterosexuality, Milanos are well-loved and popular but I don’t really understand the appeal.
I like Oreos and so does Carmen Rios and so does milk but my right-hand woman and Autostraddle Executive Editor Laneia does not. To be fair, I am a WEE BIT weary of Oreos because you ALWAYS get Oreos in your teeth and that’s the worst! But they taste really fucking good. Here’s Laneia:
“Oreos are dry crumbly sugar chunks of gunk. you’d be better off just spooning refined sugar down your throat and calling it a day. at least that way you wouldn’t get the chocolate stuck all over your teeth (and you WILL get chocolate stuck all over your teeth if you eat an oreo.) another thing about oreos? They jumped the shark years ago with their flavor variety: marshmallow crispy, berry, birthday cake, LEMON. Stay in your fucking lane, oreos. Your dry, chocolate chalk sugar lane. Worthless.”
14. Vienna Fingers
Laneia: that is an oblong oreo!!!!
Stef: no it’s different. it’s from europe
Laneia: it’s an oblong oreo named after a body part
Stef: this is an oreo with that accent lindsay lohan has now
13. Grandma’s Mini-Sandwich Cremes
Grandma’s mini-cremes are smaller than your average cookie, because Grandmas get smaller when they get older.
12. Lemon Cremes
Uncle Al might not have his shit together when it comes to controversial flavors like “chocolate” and “vanilla,” but when it comes to Lemon Cremes, Uncle Al will make the proverbial lemonade and you will like it.
11. Jammie Dodgers
This is a nice type of cookie to eat if you are in the UK, having a tea party with your fancy British friends. I’m guessing. I’ve never had these. I just think the name is cute and I’m putting it on a shortlist for my unborn child’s name, right underneath “Uncle Al” and directly above “Laneia.”
10. Carr’s Ginger Lemon Cremes
Another gift from across the pond, this particular snack describes itself as an “English Tea Cookie,” which makes perfect sense if English Tea is code for “marijuana” because this flavor combination is perfect for that sort of activity.
9. Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter Sandwich Cookies
Trader Joe’s is constantly getting away with this kind of thing. I already feel overwhelmed by the existence of Cookie Butter, eating that shit between two decadent butter cookies is more than any woman should ever be asked to handle.
8. Maple Leaf Cream Cookies
Vapid Fluff Editor Stef Schwartz testifies that these cookies are very good and “randomly vegan,” much like Canadians themselves.
The upside to these cookies, which hail from France, land of romance and intrigue, is that they taste good. The downside is that our NSFW Editor, Carolyn Yates, is allergic to them. So proceed with caution.
Newman-O’s pack all the punch of an Oreo, but you can buy them at Whole Foods, which means they also pack the sweet carress of an organic farmer who wouldn’t want you to get refined carbohydrates or processed sugar stuck between your teeth.
5. Brussels Cookies
Pepperidge Farm may have literally ruined American cookie culture forever with their wannabe “Milanos” line, but whoever got the free trip to Brussels did not come back empty-handed. They came back with a perfect cookie.
4. Trader Joe’s Peppermint Joe-Joes
These cookies are so good it’s stupid. Again, Trader Joe’s. If Trader Joe was a butch lesbian named Taylor Jo, I’d marry her tomorrow.
3. Nutter Butters
One time in High School I was driving back to Michigan from Ohio with my boyfriend who I’d lightly cajoled into accompanying me to my grandparents’ anniversary party and he was reading me a Flannery O’Connor story and I got so caught up in the story that I accidentally drove us all the way to Indiana. So: everybody was in a really good mood, really feeling excited about things and on top of the world. Except for my boyfriend, ’cause I’d said something rude to him the night before in front of my cousin ’cause I’d felt embarrassed that he was being snobby about movies and wanted to overcompensate. I know, I was a dummy. Honestly, this boyfriend is a truly excellent person but whatever, we were 17 and didn’t know our asses from our IQs.
So, again, feeling really blessed about our predicament and the prospect of even more hours in the car together, we stopped at a gas station in Indiana to fuel up for our Return Trip of Regret. As I was pumping my Mom’s mini-van, my boyfriend went inside the station, later emerging with an ENTIRE BOX OF NUTTER BUTTERS.
Reader: it was Passover.
IT WAS PASSOVER AND I WASN’T ALLOWED TO EAT NUTTER BUTTERS AND HE ATE THEM IN FRONT OF ME ALL THE WAY BACK TO MICHIGAN WHAT THE FUCK.
Like you don’t just roll around in a pile of money next to a poor person, do you? Of course you don’t. Nutter Butters are a gift from the same G-d who wouldn’t let me eat them that particular week. I’m still mad about it.
This is basically Nutter Butters: Girl Scout Edition. If you have a good idea for a cookie, tell a Girl Scout, because she’ll make it even better.
1. Homemade Oreos by Laura
Laura Wooley began on the Autostraddle Team as Intern Hot Laura, worked her way up to Contributing Editor and then eventually Associate Editor. Then she left us for Law School and continues to work at camp. But when she wasn’t busy participating in the timeline I just described, she was probably sitting at home, making you (me) some damn good cookies.
You can’t find Laura’s Oreos at a store, because much like Laura’s hair, they exist only insofar as Laura herself exists, and made you cookies. (Or didn’t. If she did, you’d know.)
Please remember that if you feel offended by the ranking or exclusion of your favorite sandwich cookie, be sure to comment with as much punctuation and all-caps as possible.
I suppose they are in the oreo ish family, Safeway brand mint oreos called mint Tuxedos are surprisingly good. And there is a penguin on the package. Or there used to be when I ate these all the time as a kid.
to the surprise of absolutely no one, there’s not a single pumpkin product involved anywhere in the creation of pumpkin spice oreos.
But there is in these!
Also, randomly vegan(if you don’t mind how they get the palm oil) is the regular Oreos, because people complained about the use of lard in the cream filling. My favorite use to be the 90’s Halloween edition Oreo, which was the chocolate sandwich filled with orange cream and had ghosts and witches on it vs the Oreo logo. My friend says they have a green tea Oreo that is pretty amazing.
I think I have your Swedish Fish Oreo beat. I raise you Ramen Oreo.
GET OUTTA HERE.
the only oreo i do miss are those crazy winter oreos that were dunked in white chocolate, those were fucking special.
OMG THE SILKY WHITE FUDGE OREOS NOBODY REMEMBERS BUT ME
And meeeee! I loved the fuck out of those winter fudge oreos
I remember seeing those, I just can’t remember what they taste like. I google searched to see if I can find it, but only found Winter Oreos, which are red cream on the inside, the candy cane, candy corn flavor, and spring one, which has yellow creme.
Also found this.
Those spring yellow creme Oreos confused the hell out of my partner. They brought them home all excited about lemon Oreos. I ate them 3 times and thought I just couldn’t tell they were lemon. Then we inspected the package for a friend for allergens, and happened to notice that they are NOT labelled as lemon flavour anywhere on the package. My partner just saw yellow filling, assumed then to be lemon, and brought them home. They were CONVINCED they could taste it, too.
Weird I’d think the combo of yellow, and spring to mean the possibility of having a lemon taste. What did it taste like?
So, I did find lemon Oreos(two of them in fact), but it’s limited edition flavor. One is Lemon Oreo the other Lemon Twist, both the same color.
@al they just tasted like Oreo! Absolutely no special flavour whatsoever. The filling is just yellow.
I like the idea of a sane and rational world (which has left me continually disappointed through this entire election, but enough of that), so I’ll accept Ramen Oreos as a reality if someone can put a package of them in front of me. I’ll even up the stakes: If someone can put a package of them in front of me and prove their existence, I will eat three ramen flavored oreos.
It was apparently an April Fool’s Day joke, which is good because now I don’t have to break anything.
Good to know, because I was searching for another flavor when a few pics of this came up. I take the spam flavor is also an April fools joke too?
Probably. And the fried chicken one.
How dare you make me see this with my own eyes.
I can’t un-see this for the life of me…….. Made with onions? More like made with childhood nightmares.
what hellscape is this
No Monte Carlo or Kingston and even the humble Wagon Wheel is missing. America you are missing out.
Wagon Wheels are everything. Also, would Tim Tams count here?
Monte Carlos are my favourite.
Delta creams and more…
Lemon Crisps forever!!
“Decadent butter cookies” “lacey-thin”… the description on the packages of some of these make me feel like I would never be allowed to eat them because I don’t have any fancy clothes.
I love EL Fudge, and I am not ashamed to admit it. They’re so stupid – shaped like elves, and the name of the cookie has the initials ELF – but it’s a really tasty fudge in a nice vanilla cookie.
I also like Golden Oreos more than the classic Hydrox-clone. (Yes, Hydrox came first, I have bizarre feelings about corporate bad behavior from the early twentieth century.)
I’d also put out a shout out for Le Petit Ecolier, aka Little Schoolboys. (With or without nuts! They’re a genderqueer cookie, at least in my headcanon.)
You’re right about the Nutter Butters, though.
YES le petit ecolier.
My grandma used to buy sugar wafers and I would pry one wafer up and layer two perfect dove chocolate squares on top of the vanilla icing and put the top wafer back on and if you still say wafers are bullshit I will fight you
I mean but I know that’s not how opinions work, so
Sometimes opinions are just wrong.
THIS IS THE QUALITY CONTENT I COME HERE FOR
“Much like heterosexuality, Milanos are well-loved and popular but I don’t really understand the appeal.”
Ohmigod I love this post
just wanted you all to know that I’m at a train station waiting for my late cousin to have a late lunch with, I am deeply and intensely hungry, I loaded autostraddle on the train station WiFi to pass the time and this article is simultaneously the absolute best and the absolute worst thing I could possibly be reading right now considering all the factors mentioned above
i believe in you
Well. We went out for lunch (I had a sandwich, in honor of this post). Afterwards I was still so hyped up from the memory of being angsty from the hunger that I convinced my cousin to get her nipples pierced, and now she won’t stop texting me about the crusty blood on her boobs.
I guess what I’m trying to say is: thanks for believing in me, Riese?
OMG BRUSSELS ARE THE PERFECT COOKIE IT’S TRUE
This is my favorite sort of Autostraddle content.
And the Brussels cookies remind me of those assorted boxes of Pepperidge Farm cookies, which are the most decadent treat to me.
ALTHOUGH I’m going to have to step my enthusiasm back a bit because you left out Peek Freans Fruit Cremes and there’s just no excuse for that.
i’m sure these are delicious but “peek freans” sounds like something your little sibling calls you when they’re trying to use swear words but haven’t quite figured them out yet
Well, it is from the same country where towns are named things like Upton Snodsbury and Wookey Hole, so.
You make a very good point about British place names- it’s all a sneaky trick to get people to buy improbable gifts with random words on.
I have to say, from here across the pond, the only one I recognise (apart from Oreos, original variety)is jammie dodgers. Not those bizarre tea cookies. Although I now want to try about 90% of this list and require a cookie/biscuit swapping penpal immediately.
A penpal to switch foods with is basically my #1 wish list item! This needs to be a thing!
@bookcharmer @savannah Autostraddle international snack swap would be the most fun!
International cookie exchange is fantastic idea.
Maria cookies are fantastic.
Tea biscuits, more USians need to try them.
i was hoping SOMEBODY would be
DO SI DO’S!!!!
i wasted so many of my cookie selling years not appreciating how good they are but i now know the true joy of ripping open a sleeve of those puppies and enjoying a nice cold glass of almond milk. Goddess bless the girl scouts.
We run oreos through the machine at work and coat them in either milk or white chocolate. I like oreos but covering them in chocolate is too much for me. Like, eat one and you enter a sugar induced coma. No thanks.
i’m sorry can we back up and discuss “the machine” in a bit more detail
I too would like more information about this. If I ran a cookie through “the machine at work” I’d get a photocopy of a cookie and that doesn’t sound nearly as exciting.
I would get a cookie soldered to a PC board which is a little more exciting but a lot less delicious. I third the motion for more details about the machine.
Lol “the machine” is pretty vague and ominous. I work in a chocolate shop. We have a machine that makes the chocolate flow like a curtain so it can nicely coat the candy ( or Oreos on this case)
How do you ever get any work done?
We work while eating chocolate :)
I would spend SO MUCH TIME covering things in chocolate. All the things.
I think the Trader Joe’s cookie-butter-butter-cookies should get extra points for being a palindrome. Also, Pepperidge Farm, why did you give your best cookies a name that evokes the world’s most-reviled green vegetable?
WOAH, WOAH, WOAH! You leave brussel sprouts out of this. They don’t do anything to deserve this slander!
thank you for this much-needed pro-brussel sprouts advocacy
Look, I don’t even personally hold any grudges against Brussels sprouts, but you gotta admit that they’re not very popular and maybe aren’t the best thing to allude to when you want people to be impulse-shopping for delicious treats.
My outrage may have partially been because I was eating some amazing Brussels sprouts as I read your comment… While I don’t understand all the negativity around those amazing mini-cabbages, I will agree that might not be a great association for your cookie sales.
Why am I having so many feelings about vegetables this week? I blame this shitshow of an election.
You come in here and insult sugar wafer cookies??? AND Milanos (though like, your criticism about ratio is well-aimed but that’s why you buy the double-stuffed ones, DUH)????
And I know I’m the weirdo with a hatred of peanut butter (exception: nutterbutters, but that’s mostly nostalgia and stockholm syndrome from them being the only thing that a.)my dad would bring hunting and b.) at this job i worked at for two summers for lunch/snacks), but come on stop ruining decent cookies and cookie-related lists with foul peanut butter cookies. And placing them above sugar wafer cookies (which come not only in vanilla but strawberry and CHOCOLATE). Shame on you.
I do appreciate that macaroons and jammy dodgers are on this list because they are quite delicious. Also, Americans (on the east coast/NE/whereever the fuck Wegmans has expanded to include), if you really want to get jammy dodgers, Wegmans has them in the international foods aisle, depending on the store. So you can have this deliciousness. (Unlike jaffa cakes good god those were terrible but thank goodness that opinion wasn’t shared by the South African exchange student we were hosting at the time or my friend whose mother is English because otherwise those would have gone to waste that one time I bought a lot of them.)
Thanks for the Wegmans tip on the Jammy Dodgers!
Also, sugar wafers are delicious and also gross. I hate/love how they coat your teeth in sugar muck as they dissolve in your mouth. I buy them from the vending machine at work and they pair perfectly with crappy work coffee. I don’t know that I can defend Milanos, though. Those things are just trying too hard.
YES you just solved the mystery of milanos for me. i remember really liking them, but then i had some recently and was like why are these so boring and bad? i had forgotten double-stuffed existed!
also i am WITH YOU on the hatred of peanut butter cookies. they are a travesty, and nothing was more disappointing as a kid than nights at camp when nutter butters were the only dessert option.
I adore Jammy Dodgers. I always end up with a lot of cookie on me though, leading an ex and I to begin referring to my tits as “crumbcatchers,” a moniker which has stuck.
Sugar wafers always make me think of Sunday school or vacation bible school from my church attending childhood. There was always a big plate of those near the coffee setup and we would get them for our snack in the afternoons. Probably because they were cheap as hell.
In conclusion, Swedish fish Oreos can suck my dick.
I too vowed to name my first born Jammie Dodger the first time I saw those cookies! Destined for total badassness and joy, that kid would be.
Milano cookies are the best IF you buy the dark chocolate ones. Then they are happiness in a bag.
Although they aren’t sandwich cookies, no cookie discussion is complete without Keebler Fudge Stripes. It’s a constitutional amendment that even non-Americans have to abide by.
I can’t handle the name; it’s too much lololol. Also: Golden Stream granola. Ahahahahahahah nope.
These articles are a choking hazard. They should come with a warning: do not consume objects the same diameter as your wind pipe while reading these articles.
Because I was eating olives and became afraid for my life after cracking up three times before I even got to item 20.
This aggression (against E.L.Fudge) will not stand, man!
I was actually eating some like 30 minutes ago and loving every bite. You shannot take this joy away from me!
seconded! i haven’t had any in ages, but now i feel a strong need to amend that
1) Food City cells packages of 100 fake oreos for 1$, so I take them apart, remove the icing, and pretend I’m eating chocolate sugar cookies. #neveroreos.
2) The sugar wafer cookies: the basement of the building our lab is in has a little honor-system fridge where you can buy Nutty Buddies, which is the PB version of wafer cookies, for 35 cents per package. Entire scholarly publications have been produced fueled entirely by Nutty Buddies consumed at all hours by desperate grad students. I normally can’t abide PB flavor in anything, but this is just the right amount, and a nice light crispy chocolate wafer. Heaven.
3) Mint milanos are the best cookie. Also thin mints. :v
1. I just took the reader survey and included a comment about desiring more snack based content so a+++++
2. I respectfully disagree about oreos and milanos and el fudges???? Milanos and el fudges are great for dipping if you like something to kind of start to dissolve when you dip it…which I do…
3. can we talk about all the different oreo flavors of the past couple years? My parents in their burgeoning old age have started trying to buy one of EVERY NEW FLAVOR. But there’s only the two of them in the house eating them so mostly they end up with just a pantry full of stale, weird-flavored oreos. BUT sometimes they’re good and this way I have someone to tell me which weird oreo flavors to try (oreo thins = yes, smores oreos = a missed opportunity for the name “smoreos” and also yes).
anyway does anyone else’s family collect cookies or what
Gingerbread oreos are a great find! They are so unlike oreos and just simply delicious
I became obsessed with cinnamon roll Oreos recently. But then I ate too many and kind of got sick of them. But they were great at first!
as I was buying some chocolate oreos tonight the cashier also extolled the virtues of the cinnamon oreos! or are cinnamon and cinnamon roll separate flavors?
i wrote this 4 u owl
THANK YOU CARMEN SANDIEGO
i cannot BELIEVE you ranked NUTTER BUTTERS over PEPPERMINT JOE-JOES.
WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE.
Reading this post really made me realise that I do not like sandwich cookies- unless they have ice cream in them. Although Laura’s cookies do look pretty good!
This is why It’s Its are the truly perfect sandwich cookie.
I love Oreos, I replace the icing with peanut butter and they are amazing. I think y’all forgot about Trader Joe’s Triple Ginger Snaps, I just finished a tub right before I spotted this article. I’m very sad
It’s because they aren’t sandwhich cookies, I so just caught that
What about the peanut butter Oreos, then?
the peanut butter ones are more of a peanut butter frosting, they are to sweet. IDK what to say other than I am a jiffy girl
ALSO CANDY CANE JOE JOES ARE VEGAN.
Sorry, I just get really excited when there are cookies other than Oreos that I can eat.
WAIT WHAT??? THIS IS EXCELLENT NEWS.
i have so many opinions about this. i think sugar wafers being southern grandpa cookies is possibly exactly why i like them. i remember eating them at my grandparents with ice cream. strongly advise adding ice cream into the equation.
also, the only acceptable oreos are double stuff oreos. the cookie is not good enough to feature as prominently as it does in the regular ones. i do agree that it’s a problem how they get stuck on your teeth, but every now and then i kind of want them as a guilty pleasure. i REALLY want laura’s homemade ones. i’ll take eight, thanks.
Absolutely beautiful work! my congratulation to you :)
I would really appreciate it if you would also review my bar catering equipment profile!
such a beautiful piece :’) and a big congratulation to us all
a megan upon us all
I rebel against this article and fully intend to go buy several packages of double-stuffed E.L. Fudge cookies to binge on this weekend. Because I deserve it and I adult the hell out of shit. :P
Ok so someone insulted jaffa cakes and now I can’t find their comment and I am VERY UPSET about the orange jaffa slander.
Also, yay for Jammy dodgers, but you should have included garibaldis (I’m not sure they count, but the raisins are ‘sandwiched’ so…, crunch creams, custard creams,
And oh my friends. You ignored the bourbon. Not just an alcoholic beverage of doom, but a biscuit of champions.
(admittedly a lot of our biscuits are ranked on ‘how well can this hold up to repeated dunking in hot tea?’ specifications.
Bourbons are those biscuits that are always left in the bottom of the biscuit tin and you eventually give in and eat them because you’re that desperate for a chocolate hit, only to find they’ve gone stale.
I mean, they’re no hobnobs.
But if you’re talking sandwich biscuits they’re pretty awesome.
Do purple Snacks count as sandwich biscuits? I feel like Snacks are always sitting on the fence between a bar or a biscuit. But if they count then I think they’re probably the best we’ve got.
I know not of what you speak…
Oh! Oh, those. They’re a bit like Twix really, aren’t they? A chocolate bar offering.
And custard creams! (I admit to liking them better than bourbons though…)
Omg, thank you. I, too, was insulted by the Jaffa Cake slander. The king of snacks!
Although technically they won to be considered cakes, not biscuits, so I can let it slide, haha.
I find this list insultingly US-centric and demand compensation in the form of delicious cookies being shipped over here please and thanks.
This is some quality content.
Also Jam Fancies own my heart. They are infinitely better than Jammie Dodgers.
“Much like heterosexuality, Milanos are well-loved and popular but I don’t really understand the appeal”
THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE READ ALL DAY!
I did not realise I had SO. MANY. FEELINGS. about sandwich cookies until this list!!
1. True story re: Pumpkin Spice Oreos. They should come with a warning. Thank you, Riese for this PSA.
2. I sort of want to try the Swedish Fish Oreos, because I grew up eating them both–separately. But I recently ate Oreos again, and found them disappointing. And then I bought a bag of Swedish Fish recently, and they were ALSO disappointing. So maybe the combo would be a black hole of disappointment I just shouldn’t go near.
3. Stef is totally right about the Maple Leafs. They’re delicious and I ate a box of them too quickly after a friend brought them back for me one time.
4. Macarons? Not all macarons are created equal, and while some are the most amazing things I’ve ever eaten, some have also been the most terrible.
5. MINT MILANOS FOREVER. I don’t care what anyone says. These are little ovals of perfection. I could leave the rest of the Pepperidge Farm collection if I had a never-ending supply of Mint Milanos. I also have super sweet memories of sharing them with my mom and brother so…
You FORGOT stroopwafel which is the best darn sandwich cookie that exists, 2 waffle cookies with a layer of Caramel inside, the perfect size for resting on the rim of your coffee mug so the Caramel gets all soft and gooey, so good, yum yum.
Also I love wafer cookies, especially Voortmans strawberry wafers. Maybe I’m a grandpa at heart.
Second the stroopwafel, would also like to add the tim-tam for consideration.
I tried to get the stroopwafel on this list but she wasn’t having it.
OH MY GOSH! THE TIMTAM! *YES*, DUDE! HOW HAS THIS BEEN LEFT OUT? ? ?
Stroopwafel!! If macarons are on here, then stroopwafels definitely should’ve been. They’re my FAVOURITE.
I feel like a great injustice has occurred, as Fudgeos seem have been left out completed
Thin Mints cookie sandwiches with vanilla ice cream in the middle. Yup. It’s good. I finished a whole box and then proceeded to finish all the ice cream after stuffing my face with my creation…….. I have a sandwich cookie problem….
Aww come on guys, I think you are being a little harsh on Snackwells! I may have a special place in my heart for these cookies because my grandma always gave them to us when we visited her, but there is NO WAY that they are worse than Sweedish Fish Oreos.
Also, I just cannot get into Cookie Butter. I once was supper excited to buy peanut butter cups from TJ’s and when I got home I realized I accidentally bought Cookie Butter Cups. I tried so hard to eat them, I even froze them thinking it would help, but they were just so sweet that they made me sick. I ended up having to give them away.
The snack wells devils’ food cake cookies are such a puzzle. They look AMAZING but they taste like ‘a punishment cookie’.
I LOVE DARK CHOCOLATE MILANOS.
When I visited Sweden last year I ate tons of junk food. Mainly these damn Ballerina “mousse” cookies. Holy hell. Like a chocolate sandwich cookie with fluffy chocolate crème. And no high fructose corn syrup because it’s banned! Sweet mother of pearl….
As a British person I’d like to confirm that Jammie Dodgers are excellent. As sandwich biscuits go they’re up there with pink wafers, and just above chocolate bourbons.
WHERE ARE MY CUSTARD CREMES AT
AND MY BOURBONS.
I used to live in England and the number one thing I miss (besides my friends there) are the amazing tea cookies and biscuits. Hobnobs, bourbon creams, jaffa cakes, custard creams, Jammie Dodgers, they are all amazing.
Now I’m left wanting a sequel called ‘Ranking 22 More Sandwich Cookies Recommended by Comments’. I can’t even imagine how half of these might taste.
shoppers drug mart brand candy cane oreos saved my life.
Alternative title: the flavors of my feelings, ranked;
I’d like to thank the Academy. I feel so very honored to be the baker of the very best sandwich cookies in the world. Y’all should make some STAT because they are as easy as they are delicious.
