Let’s admit it. Bangkok has not seen decent cookie stores for a while since the departure of Mrs. Fields from Thailand last year. Yes, we miss that American-style soft-baked goodies filled with hearty chunks of nuts and chocolate chips.
But we don’t have to wait anymore. Ben’s Cookies, one of the world’s most famous cookies from Britain, is now open on the G floor of Siam Paragon right next to the Californian juice purveyor Jamba Juice. And yes, expect the lines to go massive.
Here in Bangkok, the cookies come in all best-selling flavors like Double Chocolate & Nut, Macadamia & White Chocolate and many more. The cookie is priced at B75 each and can be purchased in paper boxes (B375 for 7 pieces/B750 for 15 pieces) and tin boxes (B365 for 4 pieces/B645 for 8 pieces)
Opening the first store in Oxford’s Covered Market in 1983, the brand became worldwide sensation with people forming lines for the cookies with chewy texture and super-gooey fillings and has now more than 30 outlets spanning the globe in countries like The United States, Japan, Singapore and Kuwait.
