Food Review: Cookies Flavor Enhancer

By Mike Thayer

Cookies Flavor EnhancerMy go to off-the-shelf rub and all-purpose seasoning is Cookies Flavor Enhancer. It’s a great all purpose seasoning, does justice on a variety of meats and heck, it’s even good mixed with a little mayonnaise for a bologna sandwich.

The promo on the bottle is no lie, it's great on pork, beef, chicken, seafood, baked potatoes, spaghetti, chili, eggs, wild game and more!  It truly is, I've tried it on all the above and why I always have a bottle of the stuff on hand.

It goes beyond that too, shake some on lettuce salad.  Combine Cookies with some olive oil for a marinade.  Want to give those french fries a bit of a kick?.....  Cookies.....

The flavors in this mix are simple but balanced and when I say simple, simple is a very good thing.  Sometimes a person can over-complicate flavors by doing/adding too much.  Cookies is very nicely done with a combination of salt, pepper , garlic, chili powder, meat tenderizer and red pepper.  The mix literally enhances flavors just like the name implies.

Cookies Flavor Enhancer gets five out of five Bachelor on the Cheap stars, it's priced right at just over $3.50 for an eight ounce bottle and in my opinion is the best all-purpose seasoning out there.

5 stars

So where do i find cookies? I live in AZ. Friends use to get it for us in IA but they are no longer able to travel and I will not pay the asking price at Amazon!

Have you tried the Cookies website? You can order from there:

I too absolutely love this seasoning especially on chicken. It was also surprisingly tasty when I sprinkled it on some fresh veggies and grilled them up with some boneless pork ribs, similarly seasoned. I love these on hindquarters. I always cut the skin loose, leaving it attached at the bottom, and sprinkle a decent amount of seasoning on each side of the meat and then fold the skin back on it and give it a lighter sprinkling. Baked for 40-45 minutes, depending on the size, at 375 and side with some mashed potatoes and a choice of other veg, delicious!
The only thing I have found that I don't like it on is ground beef. New users may want to try to use it sparingly as it is kind of salty and has a bit of a nice spicy kick to it. I also recommend buying the smaller 8oz bottle and refilling it from the larger 35oz since it's easier to season smaller pieces of meat/veggies with unless you have giant hands.
