Very Crumbly - Not the Best
on July 30, 2011
I thought I would love these based on the glowing reviews. They are simply okay. I doubt I'll buy them again. I love that they are gluten free but that comes at a price. The cookie part is always in pieces. I pick up a cookie to take the first bite & never make it to my lips before half the cookie ends up on my lap or the floor. What remains in my hands is also crumbling. It seems the mere act of picking up the cookie causes it to have structural failure. The inner part of the cookie stays true. The addition of gelatin might have something to do with this.
The taste is okay. What flavor they have is tasty but there's not a lot of it. The best thing about them is they come packaged 2 in a pack. This makes them very convenient to take on the go & you don't have to worry about an open box going stale. The box states that the packaging is non toxic aka green. Not a lot of companies can make that claim.
Even though I am not thrilled with these, I plan on trying the chocolate creme filled & the vanilla creme filled either when I find them at the store or when amazon offers them with the super saver shipping.
On a final note, just for the heck of it, I put them in the toaster oven to have a breakfast treat with my tea. They taste a bit better this way, but still fall completely apart - except for the gelatin filling which needs more figs.
