Penny Brown Smackers

By

Our Awesome Planet Smacker
(P100) – Sinless Sugar-Free Cookies with Fruits-in-Ice Cream (FIC) Cafe Late Light Sugar-Free with Clifford dog, not included with the purchase.

That’s the way I like my smacker! Now, these cookies are sounding like Starbucks coffee where you need to have 15 words to be considered cool. Ok that’s the idea, why not have an extra hot cookie on an extra chilly ice cream. Or can we have an extra sugar-free whip cream on top too?

Seriously, these Penny Brown fresh cookies are making a lot of noise and I’m glad that this is just near our office. The keyword these days are fresh doughnuts, cookies freshly baked, and popcorn popped daily. The terms fresh along with the sugar-free low carb trend is here to stay and now, I’m glad that I’ll be less guilty eating my dessert especially when I’m alone.

Actually, my favorite dessert in Glorietta are Subway’s Oatmeal Cookie (P40 for 3) and Better than Ice Cream Pistachio on a sugar cone (P60). I can’t resist these desserts and now, here’s an addition to my list of favorites. I’m glad that I can order these sugar-free smacker equivalent from Penny Brown. If I have my way, this is my ideal cookie: Extra Hot Sugar-Free Oatmeal Cookies with extra chilly Fruits-in-Ice Cream Pistachio Light Sugar Free. I’m glad I beat the 15 words cool factor here 🙂 Care to share your penny brown moment?

The verdict? I surprised my wife with this penny brown smacker and lets just say I got another cookie points for it 🙂 I love it for the fact that it is fresh and sugar-free. But admittedly, the ice cream overpowered the sugar-free cookie. The cookie itself does not have a unique taste, it is like eating the sweet texture of a cookie. Orange Outbursts heart Penny Brown and calls it heavenly– I can’t blame her 🙂


A challenge that I encountered was how to take this smacker home for my wife. They did not think about the take-out packaging since it was an ice cream and would easily melt before you hit home but then we do buy ice cream to take it home don’t we? I had to put it in front of the airconditioning of the car to prevent it from melting. Upon arrival at home, I had to put it in the freezer immediately. In the end, I was still able to get these penny brown smacker shots at home. It was worth the trouble.

Last na Last na… Miggy coincidentally emailed me regarding these penny brown smackers as I was writing down this review. Thanks for the offer on the complimentary smacker, we’ll pass by again one of these days. He also emailed me the list of the combinations and other offerings of Penny Brown Cookies and Ice Cream (check out the email below).

Hi Anton!

I’d like to invite you to the Penny Brown kiosk at the Glorietta 4 Food Choices. Penny Brown is a new brand of soft and chewy cookies. It’s introducing a new concept: the Smacker! – cookies and ice cream formed into a sandwich. Customers can choose any two cookies (can be of the same or of different flavors), and choose their flavor of ice cream (we use FIC). These are then formed into a sandwich.

Some famous combinations:
milk choco chunk cookie + raspberry ice cream + white choco loco cookie
dark choco sensation cookie + strawberry ice cream + dark choco sensation cookie
dark choco sensation cookie + raspberry ice cream + milk choco chunk cookie
milk choco chunk cookie + coffee ice cream + milk choco chunk cookie

You can also come up with your own and we can name it after you =), this is a promo we’re launching soon.

Hope you can make us part of your food trips one of these days. Kindly let us know when you’re coming for your complimentary Smacker!

  1. Smacker! reminded me of the Eskimo Roll of Presto Tivoli ice cream, which was my comfort food after those nerve-wrecking accounting tests. I love their dark choco sensation + vanilla ice cream + dark choco sensation smacker. yummy! =) My dad had the Milk Choco Chunk + raspberry ice cream + Milk Choco Chunk. Sarap din! I can’t wait to try out all their combinations. There goes my diet! =) Thanks for posting this. This reminded me to drop by G4 again and try out another Smacker!

  2. Didn’t we use to have ice cream sandwiches when we were younger? Or am I just imagining that Magnolia used to have something available with two chocolate chip cookies with vanilla ice cream?
    In new york, there are some great ice cream sandwiches, Jacques Torres has a massive one that’s too big to eat properly.

  3. Hi Anton,
    i love your blog! but i do feel like the smacker wasn’t given justice… cos it looks too small. it’s really BIG – the ice cream scoop is very generous and the cookies look so small for some reason! but you’re right, it’s not just the cookies or the ice cream but the tasty combo. good stuff.

  4. Hi Anton!
    Whoa, that was such a coincidence =) Thanks for the comments, guess we should put a note that the Smackers cannot be taken home. The posters are still under prep but we’ve instructions on how to make your own Smackers at home (it’s easy!).
    Dear readers,
    Please do check out http://www.clickthecity.com too. They featured Penny Brown there. Here’s the link:

    Thanks!

  5. Got an e-mail from Funnel Cake Factory that they’re now open in the Glorietta food court, so I made a mental note to check it out. Now, you’ve given me yet another reason to head over there. I think I’ll be watching the next movie in Glorietta…

  6. hi anton!
    just read your mouthwatering entry on penny’s smackers! nice, noh? 😉 thanks to miggy and his partners for this treat!!
    my smacker will be available tomorrow! i can’t believe it — try the Emjayweejay’s Rocky Road Trip 😉 Hope to see an Anton Smacker the next time i visit 😉 good luck!

  7. Napavisit ako sa doctor the next day..hyperglycemia daw! hahaha…I went sinless sugarfree all the way din. Nagpanggap pa ako 😛 The worry factor in eating this is how fast/slow will the ice cream melt. Its like my agony when I am eating Crepes N Cream (kaya I stopped eating there na 🙁 ) But to be fair, the ice cream did not melt and made a mess out of me 🙂

  8. dear customers, we closed on February in preparation for the opening of our food kiosks in..
    1) Glorietta 2 (near Sbarro)
    2) Galleria East Wing Ground Floor (near Fridays/Gloria Jeans)

  9. i was expecting a hot cookie with frozen ice cream in between. what i got was room temperature cookie with almost melted ice cream. what a disappointment =(
    taste of the cookie was ordinary. i would rather buy subway’s cookie and a tub of ice cream and eat at home. no value-added to buy a penny brown smacker.

  10. Hi. I once tasted the ice cream cookie at Penny Brown and I loved it! I just couldn’t find the store anymore in Glorietta. Where is it exactly located? Do you have any branch in Quezon City?
