Chocolate Chip Cookies Without the Chocolate Chips

The #1 craving I have had this pregnancy?

Chips Ahoy! Chocolate Chip Cookies…
without the chocolate chips.

Does such a thing even exist?

To be honest I have never liked chocolate much. I actually don’t like most sweets and have not craved many sweets with either pregnancy.

But there is something about the carb-laden “cookie” part of Chips Ahoy! chocolate chip cookies I have always loved. The crunchy texture with the perfect balance of sweet and salty…mmm!

So yes. While this can be chalked up to a weird pregnancy craving, I have always loved the non-chocolate part of Chips Ahoy! chocolate chip cookies. Pregnancy just made it about 100x worse.


I’ll take one sans chips, s’il vous plait.

According to the Chips Ahoy! website, there are FIVE varieties of its ubiquitous chocolate chip cookies available to the public, ranging from “Chewy” to “Chunky,” “Chewy Gooey” to “Made with Reese’s.”

So why not one without the chocolate chips?

And, because I realize the whole point of chocolate chip cookies is to include the chocolate chips, I would be more than satisfied with a “with less chocolate” version.

Think about it. Nabisco could save money on ingredients while charging the same amount as the other varieties.

It’s a win-win situation.

Here’s to hoping that someone at Nabisco would happen upon this post!

P.S. — I’m sure some of you are wondering why I can’t just bake a batch of cookies myself. Well, I may be an okay cook but I am a horrible baker. I also believe that it just wouldn’t taste the same…I need it from the source, I tell ya!

  1. I realize you posted this in July, but I couldn’t resist responding. I’m on a quest for the perfect chocolate non-chip cookie. Can’t even blame it on a pregnancy :-). I found a really great baker on Etsy and custom ordered her chocolate chip cookies without the chips. She also includes buttercreme frosting. They were heavenly.

    The shop is Tookies:

    Oh my goodness – I am sitting here eating some and I’ve always thought the same thing. Great cookie batter but the chips just become too much for me! Wish they could create some batches to test run. Would definitely make them more fun to dip in milk :)

    I have been wanting them to make choco chip cookies without choco chips my whole life!!! I can’t figure out why they keep adding more and more chips arrrrgh!! I am not really big on choco but the cookie part is sooooo yummm!! i would be willing to settle for less choco as well if they’re not willing to go without any

    Hi. I just happened to come across your post and had to comment. My husband loves chocolate chip cookies without the chips….sooooo, no blaming pregnancy here, lol! Therefore, I make my usual Nestle Tollhouse cookies withOUT the chocolate chips in them. D-lish!

    a LONG time ago Chips Ahoy ran a promotion where if you got a bag without chips you won some sort of massive prize. I cant remember what the price was, but it was something so big that you had a really small chance of finding them. This was at least 20 years ago. I remember as a kid thinking how if I found the bag without chips it would be hard for me not to just eat them, as I always felt the same way about chocolate as you.
    I stumbled onto this post trying to find info about that old promotion actually haha.
