Although Famous Amos is up against established brands like Cookie Bar and local favourite Cariza’s Stuffed Cookies, the Los-Angeles brand hopes to make a successful return and everyone’s satisfy sweet tooth.

But you read that right – Famous Amos is returning to the Philippines! Many of us may be too young to remember but 13 years ago, supermarkets and mini marts were stocking the crunchy cookies on their shelves. Over time they faded out. But with branches all across South East Asia, they hope to showcase why the reason behind labelling themselves as “famous”.

If you’ve walked past a bakery with the aromatic scent of freshly baked cookies, then you’ll know the struggle.  People walking past Famous Amos stalls often find themselves walking away with a bag of their signature Chocolate Chip cookies. The Chocolate Chip & Pecan are also a close second. But if you prefer a range of flavours, order from all their different types of cookies for a different taste with the same iconic crunchy bites.

You can order the baked goodies to take away in different sizes according to weight. The packaging may have changed over 45 years, but the taste remains the same. Head over to the store in June and see if that’s how you like your cookie to crumble.

The address of Famous Amos’ first store in Manila is  Maison at The Conrad, SM Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.
