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 your 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 the price is for four very large cookie sandwiches. I found half of one to be more than sufficiently satisfying.

Would I buy this again? While I wouldn't make these a regular purchase, they were a hit in my household.

Would make a nice cookie platter with the lemon creme cookie too! TJ's is really expanding with their vegan stuff.
Hey Alek! I agree, I love the options and I didn't feel like I was missing much in terms of taste from these.

Needless to say, I plan to get these! They look and sound delicious.
Hey Timothy! Can't wait to read your review on these!
Calorie count at 340 per cookie is pretty hefty. Once it's in your hand and traveling to your mouth with regularity, it might be difficult to NOT consume the entire cookie. Guess you could cut it in half first.
Hey Judie! These cookies are the size of my hand and I was actually cutting these in half. Half a cookie was very satisfying. Thanks as always for stopping by!
This version sounds like something i would totally love...! When something is very rich and chocolatey it doesn’t take much to make me happy so maybe the half a cookie serving is realistic.
I think part of what’s exciting about this being vegan is that now anyone with a dairy allergy or egg allergy as well as vegans have a delicious dessert option
Hey Ttrockwood! I'd love to hear your thoughts on this if you try them!
Right on description of the delicious sandwich cookies, unfortunately Trader Joe’s discontinued them in June!!!
They carried the TJ name, but is there any way you can find out who else might carry them?
