Lucy’s Cookies: A Product Review
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend…but cookies run a close second!
The nice folks at Lucy’s asked me to take their chocolate chip and sugar cookies out for a test drive. What a torturous life I live (insert dramatic flair here)…NOT!
Given my aforementioned fondness for cookies, I’ve tasted many of the brands out there and Lucy’s are one of my favorites!
Lucy’s really distinguishes itself from others on the allergy-friendly cookie market because their cookies are gluten-free and are also peanut, tree nut, milk, and egg-free (Important Note: Some products do contain garbanzo flour). They are all natural, vegan, non-GMO, and with zero grams of trans fat and zero milligrams of cholesterol. How many grocery store cookies do you know that can boast that? For those of you watching your waistline, the cookies are more Weight Watchers friendly than many of their counterparts on the market.
Lucy’s Sugar Cookie is by far my favorite! It has a pretty sugary-looking finish with a crisp crunch that melts in your mouth. It is the perfect complement for a glass of milk and these cookies are easy to decorate with icing for special holidays or occasions.
Overall I’m not a huge fan of chocolate chip, but I actually liked Lucy’s Chocolate Chip Cookie! It had a rich, homemade, buttery taste with the same crisp crunch of the Sugar Cookie. These too go great with a tall glass of milk and would be easy to decorate for special occasions.
Lucy’s Cookies has quite a selection of goodies that would be great all on their own or even incorporated into a recipe (think using crushed ginger snap cookies for a key lime pie crust):
- Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Maple Bliss Cookies
- Ginger Snap Cookies
- Chocolate Cookies
- Cinnamon Thin Cookies
- Oatmeal Cookies
- Sugar Cookies
- Holiday Sugars Cookies
- Chocolate Mint Cookies
- Brownie Cakes
- Snack ‘N Go packaging for some cookies
I love that they offer such a variety and I think it is especially important for kiddos that can sometimes get burned out on allergy-friendly cookies that are only available in two or three flavors.
