Ben’s Cookies – England’s Best Cookies Here In Singapore

Ben’s Cookies - England's Best Cookies Here In Singapore
by

Yes, Ben’s Cookies are here in Singapore! These coveted cookies known for ‘baking with chunks, not chips’ founded in England Oxford in 1984, have found a place at Wisma Atria.

“The cookies at Ben’s are, quite possibly, the best in the history of cookie-making.” That is what the Lonely Planet people describe their cookies.

Some of my friends were obviously thrilled, “Don’t have to bring back from London anymore.”

Ben Cookies’ spot is at the prominent Wisma Atria basement where everyone has to walk through to get to Ngee Ann City. You almost can’t miss it.

Cookies are sold at $2.95 per piece, $14.75 for box of 5 but you would get 2 free, so technically it is $2.10 for a cookie.

The gift tin of 8 cookies is priced at $28.00, in contrast to England’s price for the same item at £12.95 ($26.90 or so). Finally, not an overpriced overseas imported item.

There are different flavours to choose, from Dark Chocolate Chunk, White Chocolate Chunk, Milk Chocolate Orange, Coconut, Ginger & Dark Chocolate, Cranberry & White Chocolate to Triple Chocolate.

Having gotten a box of 7, I wanted to take just half. It looks crisp and brittle on the outside.

Then I took a bite. Hmm… ohhh… doughy, chewy, soft, almost like bread. Oh there is a chunk of melted chocolate, let me just finish that. The entire box, gone in 2 days (shared with my family of course.)

The feature of Ben’s Cookies is the chunks of Belgian chocolate within, which I could imagine would taste divine when toasted for a matter of 10-20 seconds.

Plus, they are free from GM ingredients, artificial additives, colourings and preservatives, and in my opinion, not too sweet. Bearing in mind they are about 400 plus calories per 100 gram though.

I obviously liked them enough. A friend preferred the smaller stiffer types, another may convert from Subway. Opps.

Tell me what you think. Are Ben’s Cookies the best?

  1. Hi Daniel,

    I just stumbled upon your blog today. The qualities of the photos are excellent. And your reviews are comprehensive. The one on Waroeng Penyet made my mouth water.

    I’m a foodie myself but am lazy to write about the dining experience 😉 I would rather just eat! I’m a native of the Philippines and am hoping you get to try, write, and most of all, enjoy the experience.

    More power to your blog! Happy eating!

    Cheers,
    Judith

  2. For me, these are the best cookies I've ever had. I spent 3 years in Oxford and I have contributed a significant amount to Ben! I am overjoyed it is here now, but I can foresee that in the long term, it's spelling TROUBLE for me! Yes Daniel, it's not an overpriced import. It is already expensive in the UK! But worth every penny!

  3. I was disappointed with the Singapore branch, tried them on the 2nd day of opening. The cookies were ‘uncooked’ inside. Way too wet and goey and was even a little cold inside. Felt like they just put the cookie dough into the oven straight out from the fridge. Pity, I loved them in London…

    • That’s a pity. I had really good ones – maybe that’s what happens when they don’t keep QC consistent.

      • hi mam judith,nag wwork ka po ba sa bens cookies singapore??bens cookies kuwait po kc ako.pwede ko po ba mahingi ung email address nyo po?thank u and Godbless

  4. If you like chewy cookies, you can try mrs fields, they’re much cheesier than subway’s and a cheaper alternative to ben’s. Pretty sure they can be found at any ntuc outlet
