Gluten Free Product Review: Jovial Organic Cookies or Enjoy Life?

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!

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox
    and now each time a comment is added I get four
    emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from
    that service? Many thanks!

    Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working
    with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet
    browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker
    then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at
    a honest price? Kudos, I appreciate it!
