PRODUCT: Jalapeño Chocolate Chip Cookies

Way back in 2005 we ran across SparX Cookies, a delightful chile-infused cookie line featuring Ancho Oatmeal Raisin, Cayenne Toffee Pecan, Chipotle Chocolate Chip, Chipotle Double Fudge and Jalapeño Peanut Butter flavors.

What a great idea. The cookies were so good, we couldn’t stop eating them. Unfortunately, the line seems to have vanished into thin air. The website doesn’t connect and we can’t track down the owner. But SparX remains a happy memory: sweet little cookies, each specially kissed with a matching chile. (If you have the 411 on SparX, please let us know.)

When we came across Chocopeño, “the world’s first jalapeño chocolate chip cookies,” we had high hopes. Alas for us, they weren’t the sweet, sizzling cookies from SparX. They were chocolate chip cookies with a strong vegetal kick of jalapeño.

We weren’t happy with that flavor profile, and gave the rest of the cookies to anyone who wanted to take them home.

Then it turns out that the home crowd—boyfriends and husbands—really liked Chocopeño.
