I first had Dare cookies when I was younger thinking they were just ok. Then as an adult I saw raves coming from Chowhound about them. I thought that it was neat just to be able to find them, but they were still just ok. Now, my girlfriend bought me some Dare Bear Claws, banana bread flavored. Simply amazing for a boxed store bought cookie. I don't even love banana bread and these are simply awesome. Tonight I'm going to try to find the chocolate chip type. Oh, and by the way, the ingredients are pretty decent. I normally don't like soft cookies either but try these out--the flava is perfect.
