Enjoy Life Foods contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I would be interested in doing a product review for them. I have always enjoyed the various products of theirs that I have tired so I said yes and a few days later I received 3 boxes of their Soft Baked Cookies which are described as “Soft, chewy and totally yummy, it’s hard to believe our cookies are gluten-free and allergy-friendly. Made with natural ingredients, unrefined sweeteners, no trans fats and nothing artificial, they’re a real hit among kids big and small.”
The first of the cookies that the Hubz and I tried were the Snickerdoodle; an all time favorite cookie of the Hubz. Well my first impression was that the cookie looked good and had a great cinnamon flavor but it was just too sugary for me. I honestly have not gone back for one of these after my initial trial of them. These were my least favorite of all of them and I would say the Hubz least favorite too.
The Double Chocolate Brownie were a huge improvement over the Snickerdoodles. They actually tasted just like chocolate chip brownies and were soft and yummy. I loved the addition of the chocolate chips it was great.
The Lively Lemon were my favorite and reminded me of my Girl Scout days. They tasted just like those lemon sandwich cookies that I used to hate as a child but grew to love as I got older. I have to say these ones are yummy for adults but I would say just like the lemon sandwiches would probably not be as popular among the kiddlets.
Overall I really liked these cookies and I appreciate they are lower in sugar, fat and calories per serving than most vegan cookies. They are also nut and gluten free so they are perfect for people with allergies to these items. So two out of three were tasty but of course there a bunch of other flavors that such as the gingerbread and “no oats” oatmeal that I’d like to try out.
