Daisy's Black and White Supreme

From Clifton, NJ comes Daisy's Black and White...SUPREME. Doesn't even say "cookie" on it!

Bought at a grocery on 1st avenue and 9th street in Manhattan, it was the only B&W left in the store. Hopefully there aren't other people doing a blog like this and cleaning house.

The first curiosity about this particular cookie is how part of the chocolate side has somehow MELDED into the vanilla side! Oh my god!



Even before unwrapping the plastic I could feel that the cake and chocolate side was soft, and the vanilla side was hard. This seems to be the norm. I wonder how hard it will be to find a cookie with a soft vanilla side?

I opened the wrapper and: SHOCK. The chocolate icing has also MELDED to the wrapper! This chocolate sure likes melding!!


Missing chocolate on right, found chocolate on left

Unfortunately, something that hasn't melded with the chocolate is TASTE. While the vanilla side was hard, ultra sugary and very vanilla, the chocolate side, though pleasing, didn't really have a strong chocolate taste. It was a struggle of the tongue to get a feeling of chocolate out of it. I took a bite of the icing where the chocolate MELDED with the vanilla, and the vanilla completely overpowered it.


In all, this was a satisfying cookie and I was happy when I ate it, but there's much better out there. Supreme? No. Daisy? Well...yes.

dear jordan
i bet you find this funny, but

in germany these kind of cookies are called "americans". i'm not 100% sure why, but i guess because there aren't that many black people in germany and the half white half black thing appeared very american to stupid bakeries...

you often come across such political incorrect names here, much worse are the "negro-kisses"

now your blog about cookies became political!

Jordan,
I'm so sorry to see that you did not have as pleasant of an experience with our Black & Whites as we would like everyone to have. That icing with the "melded" chocolate is not representative of the work that we do here at Daisy's. If you would like a cookie that stands true to what we offer you can call us

I just had my first Black & White Cookie and it quickly turned into two! They were delicious and with no chocolate sticking to the paper either.
