Homemade vs Store-Bought Cookies: A Taste Test for Kids

Imagine the joy of baking cookies in your grandmother’s kitchen, the aroma filling the air as the oven works its magic. Now, picture yourself biting into warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven. Can you taste the love and care that went into making them?

At Hook’d Up Bar and Grill, we believe that homemade dishes have a special touch that can’t be replicated. That’s why we conducted a taste test with a group of kids to determine whether they could distinguish between store-bought and homemade cookies. The results were fascinating!

The Great Cookie Test

We presented the kids with a variety of cookies and asked them to identify whether each one was homemade or store-bought. The challenge was on to see if they could detect the subtle differences in taste, texture, and appearance.

Chips Ahoy vs Homemade

The first cookie was a classic chocolate chip cookie. Its golden-brown exterior and unmistakable chocolate chips made it a dead ringer for a store-bought Chips Ahoy cookie. The kids marveled at the familiar smell and taste. However, one keen observer noticed that homemade cookies tend to be crunchier. In the end, they all agreed that this particular cookie was homemade.

Oatmeal Raisin Delight

Next up was an oatmeal raisin cookie. Its thin appearance and aroma of cinnamon sparked intrigue. The kids were torn between the two options, as both looked and tasted like homemade cookies. After much contemplation, they settled on the correct answer — it was indeed homemade!

Suspenseful Sugar Cookies

The final challenge featured sugar cookies, which proved to be the trickiest. The perfectly shaped cookies without any distinct texture left the kids puzzled. Some argued that they must be store-bought due to their flawless appearance, while others believed the lack of texture pointed towards homemade. In a surprising turn of events, the kids got it wrong. The cookies were actually store-bought!
