Think twice about ordering these through the mail, though. Mine arrived with the chocolate melted everywhere. Only half of the cookie is covered in chocolate, so your fingers won't get messy holding onto the other half. I happily ate these melted and messy, though! I loved them, but they didn't taste like your typical ginger cookie... more like a shortbread cookie. Either way, I recommend them and I'll keep an eye out in stores where they're stored at safe temperatures.
If you like trying different brands like I do, I also recommend Pamela's ginger cookies. They're soft, rich, and even taste like they're made with chocolate (but, surprise, they aren't!).
The texture was the greatest disappointment: they were coarse, granular cookies without the snap. To be fair, making the texture of any gluten-free baked good is challenging, but there is room for improvement. MidelMi-Del, Swedish Style Ginger Snaps, 10-Ounce Bags (Pack of 12) does a better job getting the texture right for a gingersnap. I was actually hoping the texture would be more like Pamela's Spicy Ginger Cookies
with Crystallized GingerPamela's Products Spicy Ginger Cookies, 5.29-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6). Those have a firm texture with a bit of give in the middle.
I was also hoping for a stronger ginger flavor, as found in Midel and Pamela's products. The ginger is there, but it is initially subtle, gaining in heat with more chewing or a greater quantity. I think the idea of the cookie half dipped in chocolate makes it special, but there again, the chocolate was not as strong or rich as it might have been.
I shared them with two other people to get their response. One thought they were just okay, lamenting the mildness of the ginger; the other liked the texture and flavor, and was very happy to finish the box!
I was a bit disappointed in the texture of these cookies. First, they were crumbly and stuck together in the package, which was a bit messy. Second, they seemed to have lost their firmness, like a cookie that is past its freshness. The taste itself wasn't bad: the dark chocolate--which covers half the cookie, in a dipped fashion--was good, and the cookie part had a nice flavor, although there was only a very slight hint of ginger; as a ginger lover, I would have appreciated a much stronger bite.
Overall, I found these cookies to be just okay. Perhaps they would be better purchasing them fresh from the grocery store, but I would not order them myself online.
Like another reviewer noted, the cookies don't fare well in a hot mailbox (which isn't their fault, but did result in the cookies being welded together by melted chocolate). The cookies have a somewhat soft and chewy texture, and each has a half-dip of dark chocolate. Unfortunately, there's not enough ginger in these cookies for me to have identified them as "ginger" in any way without the label. Overall, the impressions I got were simply "soft and sweet" - and, in fact, TOO sweet.
Considering their rather steep price, I'd pass on these in the future...though as I said, if it's really hard to find gluten-free cookies these might be worthwhile for someone who has more restricted dietary choices than I do.
The ginger cookie is not particularly strong in ginger or spice flavor. The cookie to chocolate ratio is chocolate heavy. What makes it so palatable is probably all the super sweet chocolate they use to cover up the slightly bland ginger cookie underneath. There are 8 cookies per box and four boxes per pack, if you buy them from Amazon. Tip for those who want to try these, order them on a chilly day or you'll get a box of crumbly goo like I did.
I gave these three stars because I think they have the potential to be good. And for how limited gluten free cookies and bread options are out there, this is not bad at all. Could have been a lot worse.
