Cookie Sticks

"Marc and Tricia of Aretei Food Corporation have been producing classic baked products out of their home in Marikina Valley Philippines for many years now. In 2008, as the demand for their products grew, they established a community-based commissary in the property next to their home. From art cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes and artisan breads now comes a fresh take on cookie classics! Cookie Sticks introduces an interesting twist to the classic cookie that everyone loves. Instead of selling the cookie in a traditional flat and round shape, we sell cookies in stick form." (source)

When I found out about Cookie Sticks at last year's International Food Expo, they were only offering a handful of flavors. Today, they already have a total of eleven flavors divided among three lines - Classics, Premium, and Best of Philippines.
Cookie Sticks
For the Classics, they have the following: Oatmeal Choc Chip, Cookies & Cream, Choco Chip, and Snickerdoodles.
Prices: P35 (Stookie) | P60 (Mini) | P120 (Medium) | P230 (Large)
Cookie Sticks
Snickerdoodle is a type of cookie made with butter, sugar, and flour rolled in cinnamon sugar. Cinnamon actually has a natural spice to it because of a chemical compound named cinnamaldehyde (I had to look this up), so yeah, this one's mostly sweet with a slight kick. The sugar adds some texture to it, making it more enjoyable to eat.

The Oatmeal Choc Chip is a lighter snack compared to the Snickerdoodles. It's a good choice for those looking for a healthier cookie option. Even the chocolate chips aren't sweet, plus you'll find chewy oatmeal bits in every bite.

For its Premium flavors, there's Coco Sugar Oatmeal, Almond Butter, Brownie, and White Choc Chip.
Prices: P35 (Stookie) | P80 (Mini) | P150 (Medium) | P280 (Large)

The Coco Sugar Oatmeal is yet another healthy treat offered by Cookie Sticks. Instead of using regular white sugar, this one uses coconut or palm sugar which contains trace amounts of vitamin C, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron, and copper. It also has a lower glycemic impact compared to white sugar, so it has lesser risk of hyperglycemia or high blood sugar.
Cookie Sticks
My personal favorite is the Almond Butter. It's the most crisp among the flavors I've tried. It has just the right amount of almond extract to it so it's not too overwhelming. And the best part is, they don't scrimp out on the almonds slices.

Lastly, for the Best of Philippines, there's Mango Cashew, Malagos Chocolate Raisin, and Kalamansi Almond.
Prices: P90 (Mini) | P170 (Medium) | P300 (Large)
 Cookie Sticks
Our household favorite is the Mango Cashew.  It contains dried mango bits and lots of cashews in it for a uniquely Filipino treat. It has both crunchy and chewy qualities, and a faint mango flavor that will make you come back for more.
Cookie Sticks
Each flavor comes in various sizes so if you're still in the process of finding your favorite, I recommend buying it in mini or medium sizes first. You might have a hard time picking just one though, because they're all yummy!
