Milano cookies

Milano cookies • this painting is sold

Milano cookies are a trademarked dessert manufactured by Pepperidge Farm as part of their series of "European" cookies. They are of the sandwich form, with a thin, rich layer of chocolate as filling. The baked halves are reminiscent of oval vanilla wafers and are notable for their texture, which is promoted as being crumbly yet smooth.

The Milano was created as a result of Pepperidge Farm's original cookie concept, the Naples, which was a single vanilla wafer cookie with dark chocolate filling topping it. The problem this posed was that Naples cookies would end up stuck together when shipped to and sold in warmer climates. The company resolved the problem by sandwiching Naples cookies together, creating the new Milano variety. To this day, Milano is the most popular brand sold by Pepperidge Farm.

The original variety used a filling of dark chocolate. Many additional varieties have since been marketed, such as milk chocolate; other flavors include a layer of mint or sweet orange paste in addition to some form of chocolate.

Milano cookies have primarily been marketed towards adults, as an indulgence food, rather than children.
