Pepperidge Farm History
The Pepperidge Farm brand began with Margaret Forgarty (surname Rudkin, after she got married), a mother trying to bake homemade bread for her son with severe allergies. After many attempts, she baked a bread so delicious her neighbors and local town’s folk fell in love with her recipe.
After selling her bread to local grocer at a much higher price than regular baked goods are sold, the popularity of her bread soared exponentially. The Pepperidge Farm brand spread throughout the US as it gained more exposure through word of mouth, expanding sale locations and interviews in Reader’s Digest.

The perfect balance of crisp cookies and rich, luxurious chocolate for a truly indulgent treat.~Pepperidge Farm website.
I wasn’t too impressed by the Milano Pumpkin Spice cookies.
The cookies have 1 layer of pumpkin spice and another layer of chocolate. The pumpkin spice layer tasted more like a single-flavored ingredient, like a food extract instead of a mixture of pumpkin puree/powder with an assortment of spices (star anise, cinnamon, cloves, etc). The chocolate layer masked the pumpkin spice flavor for me as well.
As a fan of pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie and pumpkin pie spice, the difference between the three are noticeable.
These were enjoyable to eat but I think I would’ve preferred a “pumpkin pie” cookie instead.
I got these at Target.

Would I buy the Milano Pumpkin Spice Cookies again?
Worth Trying?: At least once.
Like I said above, these cookies didn’t do it for me. I found the pumpkin spice wasn’t enough for me. I wanted more of a pumpkin pie cream in between the cookies or perhaps that’s what I expected. Many other people loved the flavor, that’s why I recommend trying them for yourself and decide if you like them.
