Chips Ahoy! just unleashed a bold new cookie on the world

There's nothing more comforting than biting into a delicious chocolate chip cookie -- you can practically taste the nostalgia just thinking about the classic dessert.

Well, the folks behind your favorite snack just went and did the unthinkable. They reinvented the wheel and made it even better.

Chips Ahoy! THINS are a thinner, crispier version of the cookies you grew up with, and they come in two fun flavors -- original and cinnamon sugar.

Now, before any health nuts go getting confused by the slender nature of the product, Nabisco is stressing the fact that these are not a "diet" cookie -- just a crunchier cookie.

Sorry, Weight Watchers.

In celebration of the August 1 launch, foodie innovators across the country are offering limited edition products inspired by the new THINS -- and they all sound incredible.

At ice cream hot spot 10 Below in New York City, fans will be able to order their ice cream with either original or cinnamon sugar THINS crushed in, topped with a full, glorious cookie.

At Stan's Donuts in Chicago, cookie monsters will be able to experience a special chocolate chip cake donut covered in a vanilla glaze, topped with Chips Ahoy! cookie crumbles with a THIN at the center.


And at Alfred's Coffee in Los Angeles, customers will be treated to FREE COOKIES with their beverages.

But hurry! All of those special treats are limited edition and are only available while supplies last.

Thankfully, the THINS are here to stay, as they are a permanent addition to the Chips Ahoy! line.
