Last year, Pepperidge Farm filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Trader Joe’s, claiming that Trader Joe’s Crispy Cookies infringed the Milano trademark owned by Pepperidge Farm for its incredibly scrumptious chocolate filled sandwich cookies that are the snack equivalent of crack cocaine. Pepperidge Farm claimed that while Trader Joe’s Crispy Cookies were square, they had rounded corners that made them ever so similar to the Milano. However, Pepperidge Farm has apparently decided it does not have a case, and it withdrew its claim and the judge dismissed the lawsuit.
We had to know if Trader Joe’s Crispy Cookies were as good as Pepperidge Farms’ Milanos, so we bought several boxes of each, a few gallons of milk, and performed a thorough analysis. Which is better? You will have to find out for yourself.
