Reviews for Maine Mud Cookies
"My kids love these!!"
"consistency of a sponge, just so-so flavor"
"Strange texture, weird aftertaste. Not great."
"Okay taste, but not a fan of the cakey texture. I added almond slivers to give them some consistency, which helped, but I would not make them again."
"these were fairly good cookies..really chocolatey and rich...i also added semisweet chocolate chips but i think walnuts would also be really good!"
