The Starbucks Snowman cookie has been a festive offering for a few years now. According to the company, the cookie is “a hand-decorated, buttery shortbread cookie topped with white chocolate icing and milk chocolate earmuffs.”
I thought that the shortbread cookie was reasonably buttery and crumbly, and noticeably not very sweet. The sweetness comes from the melted white chocolate icing which is denser and seems much sweeter than traditional royal icing. I personally would recommend a pairing with a beverage that has less sweetness (ie, less syrup).
The cookie is priced at $2.65 at my local Starbucks in Vancouver.
The cooking has a serving size of 82 grams and has 390 calories, 23 g of fat, 30 mg of cholesterol, 140 mg of sodium, 45 g of carbohydrates, and 4 g of protein.
I liked the presentation of the cookie but the melted white chocolate is a bit too rich for me. Rating: 3/5
