When I heard about Dr. Lucy's new line of gluten free/vegan cookies, I knew I had to try them. I had tried the chocolate chip cookies once from Starbucks and thought they were delicious, so I knew I was bound to love the new Maple Bliss, Chocolate, and Ginger Snap varieties! Lucy's was very generous, and sent me six boxes of the new flavors to review - 2 of each flavor! Isn't the packaging adorable?
This was my favorite flavor. Reminiscent of pancakes, the maple is strong but not overpowering, and the cookies (much like all of Lucy's flavors) are very crunchy and satisfying. Nice and sugary. It also reminds me of eating maple sugar candies, the maple sugar shaped like acorns? Does anyone know what I am talking about? Delicious. You would have no idea this cookie was gluten free!
I also have a soft spot for gingersnap cookies, so these were great. I loved that there were whole pieces of crystallized ginger in the cookies; they added an extra punch that I was not expecting. I loved the strong ginger flavor, and the added ginger pieces made these a better alternative to your typical gingersnap cookie.
How can you go wrong with chocolate? These cookies have a solid chocolate flavor and seemed to be the favorite among my friends. Not much more I can say about these. They were yummy!
Overall: The regular cookie connoisseur would have no idea these are gluten free. In fact, my friends couldn't tell; I took a box of each flavor to my staff meeting on Monday, and my team loved them! One RA even said "tell those people they get a 10/10, because these are really good!" They get a thumbs up from everyone here in Ohio :) They are very crunchy, and even though I'm a half-baked cookie kinda girl, I really liked these. I also like that you can eat three cookies for 120 calories - it makes me feel like less of a fatty when I eat multiple!
