HannahMax Cookie Chips:
“Tastes Like a Cookie, Eats Like a Chip”
HannahMax Baking has been making amazing baked treats for almost 25 years. Founder, Executive Pastry Chef, CEO and mother of three, Joanne Adirim is committed to using only the highest quality ingredients available. If they can't pronounce it, there's no way they're putting it in their products! All natural crunchy cookie chips were born one afternoon when Joanne was baking for her kids, the company's namesakes, a crispy, sweet treat. After they inhaled them like a bag of potato chips, she realized she was onto something big. A delicious snack you can feel good about, Cookie Chips contain a mere 120-130 calories per serving. They’re made from the best, whole ingredients they can find like milled cane sugar, creamery butter, cage-free eggs, fine chocolate and pure bourbon vanilla. Plus, you’ll never find any artificial flavours, colours, preservatives, trans fats or GMOs in anything that comes out of the HannahMax bakery.
At Ambrosia we now carry:
Original: This is where it all started. Pure brown sugar goodness fills every delicious bite of these one-of-a kind Cookie Chips. And don’t let the simplicity fool you: Original Cookie Chips have more than enough flavour to hold their own. The original taste testers, founder Joanne Adirim’s kids, inhaled them like a bag of potato chips and we know you will too.
Chocolate Chip: This is their take of the most popular cookie around. They took their Original brown sugar Cookie Chips and added the best semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels they could find to create this crunchy twist on your favourite traditional cookie. What did they end up with? Perfection with a homemade taste, just like Mom’s.
Dark Chocolate Chip: Because chocolate chips aren’t enough for the ultimate chocoholic, they decided to take their famous Chocolate Chip Cookie Chips to the next level by making them with a rich, dark chocolate dough, using only the finest Belgium chocolate.
Cinnamon Sugar: Once you try their Cinnamon Sugar Cookie Chips, you’ll forever snicker at the sight of Snickerdoodles. They start by adding a hint of cinnamon to their Original dough, then they hand dust them with pure cinnamon and cane sugar to create the perfect companion to your morning cup of joe. Whoever said cookies aren’t for breakfast, never snacked on these!
Sea Salted Peanut Butter: Just like a low calorie sweet treat (cough, cough), their Sea Salted Peanut Butter Cookie Chips represent the best of both world’s. They added pure sea salt, all natural peanut butter and roasted peanuts to their delicious Original cookie dough to create this sweet and salty combo that will drive you absolutely nuts—in a good way, of course.
