(SPOT.ph) There's no problem that can't be solved with a cookie—but not all cookies are created equal. Some are decidedly crumbly, some are addictively crispy. But if you're one for thick, chewy cookies that with melty chocolate chips scattered all throughout, then you'll want to check out Baking Bad—an Ilonggo purveyor that specializes in seriously indulgent cookies in different flavors!
You can't go wrong with Baking Bad's Chocolate Chip (P250/box of five), which has their signature cookie dough and generous amount of Belgian chocolate chips—there's no skimping on the chocolate here! If you like it even more chocolatey, they've also got the Triple Dark Chocolate (P250/box of five) which has a chocolate-dough base and chocolate chips , as well as the Nutella Stuffed Crinkles (P250/box of five).
Love matcha? They've got a Matcha cookie (P250/box of five) to quell those hankerings, what with its matcha-laced dough and mix-ins of white belgian chips and gooey dark chocolate. If Filipino flavors are your jam, go for the Ube Cream Cheese (P300/box of five). And for a one-of-a-kind cookie, try the fruity Jesse Pinkman (P320/box of five), which has a strawberry-based dough loaded with white chocolate and stuffed with homemade strawberry jam and cream cheese.
Beyond cookies, Baking Bad also offers other treats that would quell anyone's sweet tooth.
