Vegan cookie review part deux. I figured these cookies need separate reviews. This cookie right here has certain similarities to the lemon variety like the fact it's vegan, the cookies are huge, and they are new to shelves. However, the taste on these are quite different.
If you are a fan of crisp cookies, these might not be for you. These cookies are thick, chewy, dense, and quite rich.
I want you to imagine an Oreo and a brownie had a baby. You would have something similar to these.
Except that brownie has some chocolate chips added in for extra texture and chocolate flavor.
So if you heart, hips, thighs, or soul is craving something crisp, it isn't here. If you want rich and satisfying without needing to eat the whole bag, then these should be worth a try.
When the cashier told me these were her favorite out of the two, I was surprised. I tried both and I understood.
Now, both are vegan and I know I didn't make any point to go into any depth about that. But here, as a non-vegan, I didn't feel like anything was missing.
Nor did my husband who tried these too. I didn't mention it to him.
While these didn't disappear quite as fast as the lemon cookies, it was the rich chocolate that slowed both of us down.
These are more expensive than a box of cookies on the shelf at $4.29. Keep in mind that price is for four very large cookie sandwiches. I found half of one to be more than sufficiently satisfying.
