I never would have picked President’s Choice Cranberry & Pomegranate Temptations cookies off the grocery store shelf. While I enjoy both of those fruit flavours it never would have occurred to me that they could be combined into an amazing, sweet-and-buttery cookie.
Thankfully my co-worker Bev, who also runs My Daily Bread food blog, brought a box into the office and shared the yumminess that is these cookies.
I’m generally not one for fruit-flavoured cookies and I’m particularly wary of those that contain “jelly” (these cookies are really two butter cookies, one with a fruit-and-sugar jelly center, stuck together with a flavoured cream) but I love these. For whatever reason, the cranberry and pomegranate flavours combine wonderfully with the rich, buttery cookie part and just really, really work.
They work so while that if you have a holiday party to go to, I say toss a box of these into a festival tin and then prepare to watch them be devoured.
Sadly, these cookies are only available for a limited time (I’m guessing just for the holidays) so I guess I’m going to have stock up on them before they’re gone.
Would I buy this again: Yes
Should you buy it: Yes
