|Cookie is larger than it appears here|
As I was wiping the crumbs from my face I noticed that the wrapper I had thrown on the floor said things like “vegan” and “organic”. Hmm. I picked up the wrapper. I chewed slower and actually started tasting what I was eating…I was in love. Bailey approved too. These cookies were pure yumminess!
I also noted, sadly, that the serving size was 2, and that one serving was 220 calories. Oops. Another hour on that danged trainer.
In my defense, really, who eats half a cookie?
Anyway, I saved the little piece of cardboard from the cookie container and hopped online. Wow. There were lots of flavors. I sent an email commenting on how much I liked their cookies. To my surprise, I quickly received an email back with a generous offer to send me a few other flavors to review.
Um, so I get to eat cookies? OK. But only in the name of scientific study so I can provide information to other interested parties.
That’s right, I am only doing this review for you.
And before I get started – I am doing this review hoping you all don’t think I am advocating eating 440-480 calorie cookies (YIKES) on a daily basis. But as a snack or treat to split with a friend (or two…or three) I think these cookies are a great choice.
Because Alternative Baking Company Cookies taste great and are :
- Vegan (no dairy, no eggs, no honey)
- Trans-fat free (no hydrogenated oils)
- Cholesterol free
- Contain no artificial ingredients or refined sugars
- Are made organic flour and organic sugar
But these are really very good.
Like I said before, each cookie contains 440-480 calories, really too many calories for a treat, but really perfect for sharing. These cookies are so generously sized that I was satisfied eating only half the cookie.
The Low-Down (or is it the Down-Low?):
All of the cookies I tried were very moist and chewy. These cookies were NOT bland or flavorless at all. They did lack the usual “buttery” flavor that homemade cookies have, but I did not mind because the overall taste and texture made up for it. How do you guys do that?
As far as what I thought about the individual flavors I tried, here is what I think:
Double Chocolate Decadence – I ate this whole cookie. Snort. That should tell you it was really good. Very chocolaty and good. The only think I would say is that you could tell by the flavor of the chocolate chips that they are vegan chocolate chips, because their flavor is much more subtle and a little different than a normal chocolate chip. It was still good though.
Lucius Lemon Poppy – This was like a lemon poppy seed muffin in cookie form. This was extremely tasty.
Great job Alternative Baking Company! And thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to review these amazing cookies!
Disclaimer: I bought my first (few) Alternative Baking Company Cookies on my own. Then I was given three cookies to review. I ate them like the pig I am. Snort. This review is entirely my honest opinion and not affected by the gift of cookies from ABC.
