We Tried Karlie Kloss' Momofuku Cookie And Here's What We Thought

Business Insider

Karlie Kloss has been hawking her "Perfect 10 Kookie" behind-the-scenes at fashion week, on her Instagram and by literally handing them out on the streets of New York City.

The cookie is a collaboration between the 20-year-old model and Momofuku Milk Bar benefiting the Feed Foundation.

For every "Perfect 10 Kookie" sold, Feed will provide ten school meals to hungry children around the world.

The gluten-free cookie  —  made up mainly of almond flour, agave and mini chocolate chips  —  is similar to  Momofuku's less-healthy compost cookie , which contains c hocolate chips, butterscotch chips, coffee, graham cracker crust, pretzels and even potato chips.

We tasted Karlie's slightly-healthier kookie today at the Business Insider office:

Here are the reviews from Business Insider reporters:

  • "Not as good as Compost Cookies, but I also don't complain about cookies."  —  Dylan Love
  • "Tasty. They're not rock-hard like most cookies. Definitely not as good as Compost cookies but a close second if they're actually healthier."  —  Alyson Shontell
  • "I'm all about gluten-free products, but it seemed like there was something missing here. It was certainly chocolaty enough, but very chewy, and not in a Chips Ahoy kind of way. It was more like eating dry oats."  —  Kirsten Acuna
  • "I'm really into gluten, but I would definitely eat another one."   —  Laura Stampler
  • "I thought the perfect 10 kookie had a disproportionate amount of nuts and oats compared to chocolate and actual cookie. It was very soft though, which I did like a lot.  This wouldn't be my first choice if presented with different options."   —  Kevin Smith
  • "Not quite a compost cookie, but I liked it. It wasn't too sweet and didn't make me feel gross after eating it."  —  Leah Goldman

Looks like the people in this office would prefer an actual compost cookie to its healthier, model-endorsed counterpart.

Not that we were complaining too much:
