A bit too sweet for me (I prefer Mother's minichocolatechipcookies), but they're my girlfriend's favorite. And since I just proposed a month ago & she said 'yes', I gotta learn to compromise, right? --I bought both brands
When the Chips Are Down....
...this is a darn good product!
Pamela has long been known for her excellent gluten/wheat and dairy free products. Her baking mixes are nonpareil. So are these cookies. I attended an Autism Fair on July 24, 2010 and these cookies were being passed out as free samples. People descended on those cookies like a flock of falcons and I felt lucky to be able to snag one. Even so, they were a BIG hit and I ended up getting a bag for guests. Within minutes those cookies were gone.
Hats off to Pamela! (You will also want to check her website for more good recipes and products).
This is coming from a chocolate lover. I ordered the "extreme chocolate" cookies thinking I was up for a challenge. Well, they are good but not great. I can't believe I'm saying this but the chocolate is actually overwhelming. I'm saving the rest of the bags to make a chocolate crust for my cheesecake but I won't order this type again. I do agree that it almost tastes like the top part of an oreo but with more intense taste. My husband hated them and my 3 year old wasn't fond of it. On the other hand, I have been ordering the chocolate chip flavored ones. They are awesome! It has a perfect balance and a hint of vanilla. My family loves it and even my co-workers too!
I've been struggling with food intolerance lately, and by far the worst offender is sugar. Be that as it may, for some reason I don't have a problem with these cookies although they do contain sugar in the form of evaporated cane. They taste wonderful with just the right amount of spice and taste great dipped in coffee or milk if you can have that. I'd never know I was eating wheat-free gluten-free, or as my husband calls it, a "cookie-free cookie," had I not read the package first. I like ginger snaps to begin with, and these taste great. They are a bit larger than a quarter, are crisp rather than soft, and have 130 calories per 4-cookie serving. No trans fats; 10g sugar.
