Country Ma'am cookies

25 Comments

From Fujiya comes two new Country Ma’am chocolate chip cookies using Japanese ingredients -- Miso Caramel and Kingoma. Ingredients used are the well-known Maruya Haccho Miso from Okazaki, Aichi Prefecture and the premium sesame Kingoma.

The Miso Caramel cookies are made with Maruya Haccho Miso kneaded into the caramel cookie dough, adding depth and a rounded flavor. Sweet chocolate and caramel chocolate are used. Crushed Kingoma is used for a crisp, fragrant flavor.

The retail price is 157 yen with 5 pieces per package.

This sounds good. A lot of their other types are good, but very sweet. This sounds a little less so. I'll try it when it comes my way... But, I won't get too attached, because when you try & love a new product, it 's almost a certainty it will be discontinued! ;^P

Well that pretty much throws the American country-style marketing image out the window, doesn't it?

I like Country Ma'am cookies, but miso flavour? Hmm...

I wonder whether this, like 95% of the cookies made in Japan, contain shortening and trans-fat.

Feeling a wee bit queasy now. Why spoil a winning formula, I say? I wish they'd leave Kit Kats alone as well. Imagine my surprise when one sleepy morning I bought an apple flavoured one by accident... .

Miso cookies with chocolate chunks? Sick...

Baibaikin, have you tried the soy-sauce flavored Kit Kats? ....Yuck. A real eye-opener.

And I thought green tea flavored Kit Kats was weird enough!

Are you kidding me? Green tea chocolate is awesome.

Don't know of any ma'am in the country that makes miso caramel cookies. But who knows what that Elly May is up to nowadays. Sun's coming up, got cakes on the griddle. Life ain't nothing but a funny, funny riddle. Thank God I'm a country boy.

>Are you kidding me? Green tea chocolate is awesome. Guess I've led a too sheltered life - I'll have to try 'em next time! There're not wasabi flavored Kit Kats, are there?

Miso caramel??? Hmmm....

I always think these cookies taste half-baked.

@ kirakira25 : I think you're right, they give me the worst ogida, but 'love 'em, just the same... I like the idea of miso paste in the dough, with sesame. It might take that sweetness down a notch. Now all they have to do is leave 'em in the oven an extra 3 minutes!

This sounds really interesting, maybe I could try to make this kind of flavour into ice cream...as for kit kat, I've eaten chilly-flavored in Nagano, really nice, tastes like normal chocolate for about 5-6 seconds...

"This sounds good."

It does not. Miso-Caramel? Good grief! Might as well make Natto-Strawberry.

There're not wasabi flavored Kit Kats, are there?

There are! I personally liked them, myself!

I am intrigued by these cookies! I wonder if any of my local markets have them-- I will have to check. Although I don't like the copious amounts of transfats and oils here either, if these flavors taste good together, I might try to make a homemade version!

Seawolf, there's tons of weird ice-cream already. You should try them. When in Shizuoka, try the Wasabi-flavored one. Sort of like your chilly-flavored Kit Kat...

@ Sarge: Next up, curry roux & choco chips! ;^P

But... why would you do that?!

i think miso being used for the cookie is ama-miso (sweet miso), doesn't taste like miso soup at all. miso cookie sounds terrible, but it tastes good actually!!

Not a great deal of support for miso caramel cookies, it would seem. And rightly so. Meanwhile, feast your eyes on this collection of KitKats... http://foodnetworkhumor.com/2009/06/kit-kat-flavors-from-around-the-world/ All so wrong.

@Baibaikin - Thanks! You really made my day!

Come on, while they we criticise them for a lot of stuff, their food is superb! I will be giving these a shot for sure!

American Soft is a better cookie, but Country Ma'am is quite good. They keep trying to tweak the flavors, but nothing comes close to the vanilla chocochip ones.

This whole thing with salty-weet (shio caramel, miso caramel)? I never understood it.
