your weekly digestion of food news to consume....and useless cookie review
This is what happens when you reach the end of the week without food inspiration. You end up desperate to find something then suddenly it's raining outside and you end up at a last resort. But at least it wasn't Safeway this time, it was Whole Foods, does that make it any better? A philosophical argument for a later time. I kind of was in a cookie mood and made a beeline to the baked goods. There I spotted bins of mini cookies and thought..ooo..those look good (enough). Then I saw a sign that said "cookies $10.99 a pound" and like WTF! Ugh. Okay, at least they were small size. As in fit in the middle of the palm of your hand. After thinking too much about which ones to get, I chose the two above and went the register hoping pricing would be the worst. Turns out these two cost me $1.76. I'll take that, considering I tried to get the ones with the most creme because that's what I do.
The peanut butter I kinda liked. The cookies were crunchy on edges and soft in the middle. The creme filling was more peanut butter but not too sweet and just a hint of saltiness to make it interesting. If they made this in regular sized cookie sandwich, I definitely get again. The chocolate one was way too crumbly for my liking. Plus, there wasn't as much creme inside as it appeared. You could sort of taste the chocolate, like it was a powder or something. Sometimes with gluten free there is extra sugar to make up loss of some flavors, but that wasn't happening here at least. Though, it wasn't enough to make me like it.
