Momofuku Milk Bar Eats


Happy National Cookie Day! Since February, I’ve been trying some of the products in Momofuku Milk Bar. Most are actually cookies, so this is an appropriate blog post!

If you live in New York, Toronto, DC, or Sydney, you’ve probably heard of Momofuku. Founded by famous chef David Chang, Momofuku is a group of Asian style restaurants with an upscale, modern feel. The most famous restaurant in the Momofuku group is Noodle Bar. However, Milk Bar is Momofuku’s dessert shop, filled with delicious baked treats.

I will be honest. I have kept these Milk Bar treats since February. I know that sounds disgusting, but they’re sealed and have been kept in the environment they should be in. As far as my health goes, so far I have had no ill-fated symptoms.

I’ll begin with one of the most famous treats: Crack Piemilkbar

This really is Crack Pie. It is one of the best tasting pies ever. It is sweet, like caramel sweet. It also does taste like caramel. And the crust! If you love the crusts of cheesecakes, you will love the crust of this pie just as much! The inside is soft and a bit chewy.

Up close shot. Look at that powdered sugar!

Honestly, you will want more of this pie after one bite. It truly lives up to its name.

COOKIE TIME!

 

First up is the Fruity-Pebble-Marshmallow Cookie.

So, apparently my notes for this cookie have disappeared. I do remember it being sweet and pretty much tasting like Froot Loops in a cookie form. I mean, it does have “Fruity-Pebbles” in its name.

As you can see, it’s a colourful cookie. I think it’s the perfect cookie for this month – it looks quite festive. Just serve it with something rich like milk to tone down the sweetness.

The next cookie is the Corn Cookie. I know, it sounds strange but it had no hint of corn at all. When you cook corn, it’s sweet and this cookie was sweet.

It smelled and tasted like a sugar cookie. I wish I could say more about this cookie but it really just tasted like a sugar cookie.

Out of all the cookies I bought, it was more yellow in comparison, which makes sense since corn is yellow. It wasn’t bad but it was nothing special. If you’re curious how a corn cookie tastes like, it wouldn’t hurt to try it.

As a Canadian, anything maple flavoured grabs my attention. This Maple-Coconut-Pecan Cookie had to be tried.

When I opened the package and took the cookie out, there was a strong maple pecan smell. So if you’re a pecan fan, you will love this cookie.

milkbar8

It was quite nutty and chewy. The chewiness is definitely from the pecan. It was almost like I was eating an oatmeal cookie. I don’t remember how sweet it was, but I don’t think it was as sweet as the Corn cookie.

I do wish it had more maple taste than maple smell. I think that was the disappointing part of this cookie. The pecans really took over in this cookie. It was a little too nutty for my liking, so I don’t think I’d repurchase this one.

The last cookie for today is “The Ritz” Cookie. And yes, it does contain Ritz crackers (if you can read it in the ingredients list on the package).

I actually ate this cookie today (the others were months ago) so it was a bit stale. It wasn’t ridiculously hard, but I did place it in the microwave for a bit to soften it.

The cookie does have the Ritz cracker appearance to it. It’s got the grainy texture and yellow “Ritz cracker” tint to it.

milkbar15

Like the Corn cookie, this pretty much tasted like shortbread. It was richly sweet. I originally planned to eat another cookie after this one, but its sweetness was more than I expected. For those who aren’t big on sweets, I would suggest sharing this cookie. I couldn’t get any hint of the Ritz crackers though. I did get a buttery taste to it. I would say that’s partly from heating it up. I like how this cookie looks but for its taste, it’s nothing special.

So far, the Crack Pie is my favourite Milk Bar treat. However, I will say that even after ten months, these cookies are still tasty. They’re probably not as soft and chewy as how they should be, but that’s something that a microwave can fix. A Crack Pie on the other hand will harden after months being the fridge. So when you buy that, try to eat it ASAP.

I do have three more cookies to try. I was going to try them all tonight but since “The Ritz” Cookie was sweeter than I expected, I had to stop. So, stay tuned for continued post! 🙂

It's more metal to suck balls without using a plastic straw 🤟
⠀
I love bubble tea and the amount of it I've been drinking made me realize how much more plastic waste I've been contributing. So recently I've made the switch to using metal straws.
⠀
While I might have to carry my straws with me and clean them myself, to save the Earth and reduce the effects of climate change, I'm willing to do it.
⠀
Earth is not just for our generation but for our future kids' generation and their kids. It is our job to make sure the Earth is still alive and kicking for them 🌎

I'm back! Nice to meat you all again 🍝
⠀
I've been MIA because of my phone. My almost 5-year old Sony Xperia Z3 bootlooped twice and I had to factor reset it, wiping everything, and I didn't get to back up all the internal data. Then my phone also corrupted a microSD card with new food photos I had, so I lost those too.
⠀
So I've been looking for a new phone, and now after 11 years of being with Sony-branded phones, I'm now part of #TeamPixel ✌️

Minus the five years of data that I lost, my phone and I are tapiokay now! 📱

Let's get 100% real here: Almost broke down because my phone died on Tuesday and currently can't afford a new phone. Luckily, factory resetting my phone fixed it! I also never backed up my phone for the 5 years I've owned it, so I lost all my contacts and other data not on my SD card. (So if you have my number, text me yours because I lost ALL. DA. NUMBERS.)
⠀
Thank you to @maestroannie for letting me use her phone for these photos! 🙏

Summer means it's Ribfest time! It's a yearly tradition for me to hit up any Ribfest I can in Ontario. Today I went to the @oakvilleribfest. Besides ribs, always gotta get the blooming onion, deep fried cheesecake, and funnel cake!

A nice, cold drink makes the summer heat beerable 🍺

I've been missing Iceland a lot lately and have been craving Einstök beer. Here's a #ThrowbackThursday post to when I ordered a non-alcoholic, alcoholic beer in Iceland. Read about this funny story on my travel account ✈ @asyoutravelit.

What's your favourite beer?
