Store bought cookies versus freshly baked cookies: Which is better?

Which cookie do you like better, store bought cookies or freshly baked cookies? This has been a question that has been bugging us for quite a while now. Some people enjoy the freshness and taste of a freshly baked cookie, and some people swear that you really can't beat the convenience and the variety of store bought cookies. So, which one is actually better? Today, we're going to compare the taste and freshness of the two as well as the pros and cons that both bring to the table. Let's get started!

Quality of freshly baked cookies and store bought cookies

When it comes down to quality, we can break it down into two sub-categories which are taste and freshness. Let's start with taste. Freshly baked cookies will almost always win out against store bought cookies. This is because store bought cookies are generally mass produced and use cheaper ingredients in order to save on costs.

On the other hand, freshly baked cookies are made with higher quality ingredients and each cookie is usually made to order, meaning that they can be tailored to your specific taste preferences and some shops even do customized cookies. But this isn't always the case, as some shops still use cheap ingredients to compete with store bought cookies.

If you aren't sure which shop to get your cookies from, here is the best shop that has cookies for sale in the Philippines.

Pros and cons of freshly baked cookies versus store bought cookies

First, lets look at the pros and cons of buying store bought cookies over freshly baked homemade cookies.

The pros of store bought cookies are that they're usually cheaper than freshly baked cookies, they have a longer shelf life so you can buy them in bulk and store them for later, and there's generally more variety to choose from.

The cons of store bought cookies are that, unlike freshly baked cookies, the quality is often lower since mass production generally uses cheaper ingredients, and you don't get to customize them to your specific taste preferences. On top of that, some if not most of these cookies contain some preservatives, so if you're trying to avoid those then store bought cookies are definitely not the right option for you.

Now, let's look at the pros and cons of freshly baked cookies.

One of the things we love most about freshly baked cookies is that oftentimes they are really good — especially if they're created with really good ingredients. If done properly, these cookies can come out really good, and it really all depends if you'd like your cookies think and crispy or chunky and gooey.

The possibilities for flavors, texture, and size are endless if you get freshly baked cookies from a shop that knows its stuff. Besides the fact that these cookies are not readily available at the market and can go stale quickly, they are amazing. And if one there is one disadvantage of choosing freshly baked cookies over store bought ones, it's the fact that a lot of people will be asking for a bite or a whole cookie from you because freshly baked cookies are that much better than store bought ones.
