Gluten Free Product Review: Jovial Organic Cookies or Enjoy Life?4 Comments
I like cookies. No, I LOVE cookies! I pretty much like any sweet or dessert aside from strawberries in my dessert – I would rather have strawberries on their own. So, while searching for cookies to have as snacks, I came across Jovial Organic Chocolate Vanilla Cream Filled Cookies Gluten Free. Unfortunately, I wasn’t impressed. The vanilla cream inside tasted very good but the cookie itself was dry and crumbly. In two cookies there are 160 calories and 7 grams of fat (2.5 saturated), 10 g sugar, which I was surprised because the cookies are literally so light. I would try these again if the cookie itself was soft or chewy.
My favorite cookies are still Enjoy Life Snickerdoodle Cookies. I am satisfied after eating two of these cookies. They are soft, chewy, have a bit more mass to them and they taste really good. Plus, 2 cookies are only 140 calories, 4 g fat, o g saturated fat and 9 g sugar. These cookies have white rice flour and light buckwheat flour – both FODMAP friendly (as are the rest of the tasty ingredients)! I have found these cookies in all my local health food stores. If you do not see the Enjoy Life brand in your local market, just ask the store manager if they’ll consider stocking the shelves or you can always order online here.
I have tried a few other gluten-free, fodmap friendly cookies but if you have a few you like, please comment below!
