American cookies with chocolate chips and chunks: How to get them in Japan

Unfortunately, Nissin in Azabu area have recently stopped selling their huge (by Japanese standards) chewy chocolate chunk cookies in a single-piece package. Apparently they didn’t sell well, although some people including me used to indulge in them rather often. So now we have to learn how to deal with that.

The easiest ways to get your hands on American cookies in Japan are:

1. Starbucks. I haven’t tried this option yet, but they look rather big and scrumptious.

2. Convenience stores. Rather good, really soft chocolate chunk cookies are available at Lawson and Seven Eleven. The good news is that it is easy to get whenever the cookie craving strikes, even at 3 am in the morning.American cookies3. Costco. Not all people have a big family that loves American chocolate chunk cookies, but no worries – they can be frozen. That is, if you have enough space in your freezer.

4. Supermarkets. In fact, these cookies can be also found in convenience store and they don’t even cost more there. But supermarkets give a variety of choice, gathered at one spot: Country Maam, Aunt Stella’s, American soft.American cookiesAunt Stella’s cookies are more on the crispy side. They contain many chocolate chips. I bought these at Lawson.American cookiesWhen I try to make my cookies soft, they turn out to look more like these. Unluckily, they are neither soft, not crispy, which means that they don’t satisfy anyone in my family.American cookiesCountry Maam and American soft are ridiculously small and individually packed.American cookiesThey went fine with a cup of coffee or a glass of milk, but I’m not going to buy them again. Too many unwanted ingredients even for commercial cookies.
