Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Investigate the range of cookie style biscuits available in a local supermarket Write a short report on your findings Invent a new biscuit product which you think would appeal to a target group such as teenagers To answer the question given I will; 1. Investigate the range of cookie styles available to buy. For this I visited my local tesco in Mansfield. I carefully examined the packets of cookies that lined the shelves in the biscuit section of the supermarket. 2. I will look at the packaging, nutritional information, ingredients, flavours available, price vs. amount and if it was suitable for vegetarians. I will include the notes from my findings in this report. I will use pictures off the official tesco website to emphasize how the companies advertised and attracted the customers by its packaging to buy the products. 3. With the information gathered I will devise a questionnaire and ask 20 teenagers to complete it. I will then evaluate the questionnaire and construct a recipe (and include an equipment list) that suits the needs of the young adults. 4. I will make a time plan to plan out the time I will conduct each method or technique. This will guide me through the practical, time-wise and so I know what I am doing. 5. I will carry out the recipe in a practical lesson at school. When they have been cooked I will ask people to taste my cookies and rate them. ...read more.

I then asked people to try them and honestly comment on the taste, texture, size, appearance etc. This is what they said; "Tastes good" "Very nice, chewy - this is good!" "Gorgeous - chewy, soft, all around yummy!" "Nice consistency, very tasty and cooked to perfection" "Very good, just perfect!" "The texture is spot on and tastes really nice. I could eat ten of these!" "Well good" "Really nice" "Soft inside and the chocolate just melts on your tongue, heaven" From the comments I think that my cookies were a success and tasted nice. After tasting them myself I thought that they were soft, a bit chewy, and sweet - but not too much, the chocolate melted on my tongue which was really nice, slightly larger size than medium. I think that my cookies suited the needs of the answers from the questionnaire. ...read more.
