Lindt Dark Chocolate Cookie bar, your PGT-endorsed Galaxy Cookie Crumble replacement.

As a space committed to all developments related to the Galaxy Cookie Crumble bar: They are no longer selling it at Cost Plus World Market. (Teardrop.) I last spotted one in a Vancouver British imports shop last November, so it would seem distribution has changed.

However! I am thrilled to also let you know there is a new chocolate-cookie-bar game in town, and it tastes nearly the same: Lindt Dark Chocolate Cookie bar! It is so good–trust me on this. So far I’ve only found this kind of bar at Target (they sell the other kinds at Bartell Drugs, but not Dark Chocolate Cookie), meaning that it’s also about half the cost of the Galaxy.

Oh hell yes.

For fans of international cuisine, I bear good news: The Galaxy Cookie Crumble candy bar has arrived from across the pond!

After tasting my first bar of the crunchy-yet-luxurious British chocolate 3 1/2 years ago, I soon added a nonchalant walk down the international (cough, foreign candy) aisle to my grocery store trips. For all their Maltesers and Mars Bars, there was nary a Galaxy to be found.

Then, from time to time, my friend Laura and I began finding them in our go-to British candy shop in Victoria, BC.

I’d almost forgotten my long-lost British friend when, on Saturday, I found it: smooth, chocolaty, cookie-crumble sumptuousness!

Fresh off the boat, they’re now available at Cost Plus World Market. The new season of Downton might be a few months off, but consider the Galaxy Cookie Crumble sweet consolation in its absence.
