{Gluten Free Review} Enjoy Life Crunchy Cookies

A few weeks ago Enjoy Life contacted me again to see if I wanted to try one of their newest product lines, an allergen free crunchy cookie. They also have a line of "soft" gluten free, allergen free cookies and to be honest I don't really like most of them. They are a bit too soft, kind of mushy, and the flavor is odd.

So with a bit of hesitation we tried the crunchy cookies. They come in four flavors, Crunchy Sugar Crisp, Double Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Chip, and Vanilla Honey Graham. So far, Michael and I have tried the double chocolate chip and the sugar crisps. Michael loved the double chocolate chip. As a matter of fact, I had two cookies from the box... he ate the rest of them. These have a distinct "oreo" type flavor to them and they are definitely crunchy & crisp. We loved them. The other flavor we've tried are the sugar crisps. I really like these a lot. Michael hasn't tried them because they don't have chocolate in them. However, my vanilla loving self has really enjoyed the crispness and flavor of these cookies. I would definitely buy either of these two flavors. I don't know what the retail prices for the cookies are (most likely, much more expensive than you would pay for a box of Chips Ahoy)... but I'd probably pay up to $5 a box.

These are very tasty cookies, but don't expect health food here. After a gluten free flour mix, the 2nd ingredient in nearly all of these cookies is evaporated cane juice (that sneaky "healthy" name for sugar). The serving size is 2 cookies and they average 110 calories a serving. So be mindful of your serving. I have to say, while I generally could eat a whole box of anything sugary and crunchy, I am satisfied after eating 1 or 2 of these cookies. They have a great crunch and a satisfying sweetness.

A few other products by Enjoy Life that I like quite a bit: their new chocolate granola and their allergen free chocolate chips & chunks!
