New toasted marshmallow Milanos are (almost) the s'mores cookies of your dreams

Light, crumbly and just the right amount of sweet, the Milano cookie is clearly the favorite child of the Pepperidge Farm family. Over the years, its had quite a few makeovers — from the now-classic mint flavor to the trendy salted caramel from earlier this year.

And now it's jumping aboard the s'mores train (kind of). The latest Milano cookie flavor is "toasted marshmallow" — which is available now at Target and will be available nationwide on January 1 — in case "eating more cookies" is your New Year's resolution.

We tried 'em — well, quite a few of 'em — because, much like all their other variations, they're very addictive. It's very easy to go through a bag of them without realizing it as you write an intro to an article.

However, they're not very different from original Milanos — buttery and shortbread-y, which, of course, isn't a bad thing — but we think they could have easily taken this cookie to the next level. The "toasted marshmallow" is more like a thin swipe of Oreo filling; I didn't find anything "toasted" about it, but one of my colleagues said she detected a tiny toasted flavor. Either way, we both agree that if there was just a touch of graham cracker flavor added to the cookie, it could have been called "S'mores Milano," which would have been awesome.

But alas, they didn't do those things, so they're pretty much the same as regular Milanos. Maybe I'll try to toast them myself and see what happens. Or I won't, and I'll probably end up eating a whole other bag by the end of the day anyway.
