I generally prefer homemade treats. But lately, I can't seem to stay away from the dark chocolate/coconut/sweet potato cookies at Watercourse and City o City ($3.24).
What do they taste like? The cookies remind me of a giant, vegan, gluten-free Samoa. At room temperature, the consistency is nice and chewy; the texture becomes addictively-crisp after they've been refrigerated for a half-hour or so. The little bits of sweet potato make me feel virtuous, although if I gobble up an entire cookie in one sitting, I get the same sugar rush that I would get from traditional sweets. While slightly messy, the dark chocolate coating is a good compliment to the coconut (and nuts?) inside.
