Don't bother

The cookies taste ultra ORDINARY, and nothing special about them at all.
All I can say, is: DONT BOTHER.
They have become passe. No longer worth the hype.

YAWN.

Rude attitude
The cookies is nice, but the owner attitude is horrible, threat client not polite at all, during the 1hour long Q, not show the cookies is finish, and, when we go the day after, the old lady also tell us only can buy 1tin and even lie to us the cookies is finish even we line up early morning. After a quarrel, then she let us buy 3tins ~ and stock available.
NO NEXT TIME,i wont buy again

Not bad, but not worth waiting 45mins for.
First off, the cookies tasted quite nice. But not worth waiting 45 minutes in a queue, for what were essentially fresh-baked cafe-quality cookies.

Overall consensus? Too much hype, and really a bit expensive for a tin of cookies.

Nice cookies but not really worth the wait
Went to queue half an hr before the shop opens. The queue already stretched right to the main road at 7-11. There were a few locals who queue right in front (probably stationed there before sunrise n would asked u if u wish to pay more to buy from them and save u the queue time. DO NOT DO IT.

Firstly u r paying more than u shld be paying n u probably just have to wait a few more mind as the queue clears pretty fast once the shop opens. Secondly, taking up their offers will encourage more of such chance takers who want earn easy quick bucks out of others. Anyway, the day i queue, nobody took their offers n they decided to leave the queue once the shop opens.

The cookies r pretty nice n the butter-y aroma is nice. It's an experience to queue for this. But I wun queue there for an hr just for this, again.

Overpriced and overhyped
Dec 2013 • Solo
Most would attribute long queues to good, bargain products.

A tin of biscuit costing about US$18 is too overpriced. There are much better things to bring back from HK.

For those who want to give it a shot, some things to note:
1) Be there early, but not too early. There are early birds at 8am just to be first in line when it opens. Joining the queue during mid-day would only give you a wait about 45-80mins.

2) Find out the various outlets

3) From past comments, there seems to be times during the day where queues would be extremely short. Something to consider.

4) Research prices and types beforehand

Great cookies - great story to tell
Dec 2013 • Couples
We stayed in the same building and happened to stumble across the very long line of people queuing for this cookie. We joined the line the next morning because of curiosity and we were not disappointed with it: The cookies tasted, smelled and felt very tasty and fresh! And, we had a cool story to tell when sharing them with people at home.

The best time to cue is queue is early morning (before 8 am) because during that time all attractions and shopping malls are still sleeping and you are guaranteed to be included in the "Morning Quota". Beware of Christmas and Chinese New Year, as the queues tend to become extremely long. In the afternoon, the cookie shop opens at 4 pm for those who cannot get up early enough.

Not queue-worthy, buy fish skin instead!
Dec 2013
It was the most un-Hong-Kong thing I've ever heard of. Wife biscuits, Wontons, Fish skin crisps, Yes! Butter cookies? Hmmm. So we decided to check it out. There were no queues! Amazed, we dashed into the shop. The winter sun had just set and the cookies have already run out. Only cranberry nougats left. (They're better than the cookies by the way). Two extremely sullen young ladies were at the counter. They answered in monosyllables even when we spoke in Cantonese. Can we place an order? Nope. Can we sample the cranberry nougats? Nope. What are the other varieties available? They pointed sullenly to the chart behind them. I'm not coming back I declared. My fellow traveller however did the next day and queued for a full 30mins. Her friend returned three weeks later and queued for three and half hours!! Verdict? They taste like freshly baked cookies do. No big deal. Yes those with nuts tasted of freshly toasted nuts and the coffee flavoured ones were fragrant but certainly not addictive and certainly not queue-worthy. Don't bother if you see a long line. You would do better to stroll along the streets and buying up big bags of deep fried crispy fish skin.

The cookies are delicious!!!

When I reached the shop, the lady told me to queue outside the TST MRT to wait for the turn to get the "ticket" before I can enter the shop to buy the cookies. It was quite long queue. The lady from the shop will come out to give each of us a pink ticket as a "pass" to enter the shop. When we entered the shop, we need to queue again to place our order.

I bought 3 small 4 mix and 1 big 4 mix. On the day, 8 mix was not available. The small 4 mix is HKD65, big 4 mix is HKD120. Two days later, i passed by the shop about 6.30pm. It has not many buying the cookies so we can escape from queuing outside the MRT. I wanted to buy the 8 mix small. I thought the price is the same as 4 mix. It is more expensive, HKD105 small 8 mix. As my cash on hand is low, i need to reserve some for others so i decided not to buy it :(

There are "stall" selling the same Jenny Bakery cookies at Mansion Building without queuing. But the price is much more expensive.

I will go back to grab for 8 mix in my next trip to HK.

Have been a great fan of jenny cookies for years... it has never failed to make me excited when i managed to find its outlets. I must be the lucky one, no q when i was at TST outlet on Monday afternoon and managed to purchase both 4mix and 8mix.

i simply love its buttery taste amd the fragrance of the coffee cookies! Hope it continues its standard forever!
