Review: Emmy’s Organic Macaroons

I didn’t realize how much I like coconut and macaroons until after I started the gluten-free diet.  I guess when I had to eliminate gluten from my diet, it gently forced me to open my eyes to the other wonders that lay right in front of me.  Thankfully I was wise enough to open my eyes, because I wouldn’t have discovered Emmy’s Organic Macaroons otherwise.

Q: Are your products gluten-free?
A: Yes! We do not use any ingredients that contain gluten or wheat. Our manufacturing facility is free of gluten and we are the only company occupying the space. We can control what we bring into our prep areas. Gluten and wheat are not allowed!! We have plans to do gluten-free lab testing on our products when we have the finances to do it. Stay tuned!

I have to say that this is one time where I am pleased as punch that no one else in my house likes coconut.  That means that I can enjoy these on my own schedule, all while leaving them out in the open without worrying about the human vacuum cleaner living in my house inhaling them.  For the past couple of nights I have enjoyed three macaroons for dessert – all different varieties – so I could work through them all.  I was very impressed with the freshness of the macaroons – they were so moist!  Each and every macaroon variety is made with care and love, using high-quality ingredients.  Biting into each new macaroon was like going on a flavor trip; the Chai Spice reminded me of my favorite chai tea latte in a cute little small package; the Coconut Vanilla had just the right hint of vanilla to complement the coconut; the Dark Cacao was my favorite with a rich coconut, dark chocolate flavor; the Mint Chip was such a unique combination in a macaroon and one I had never experienced before; the Choco Orange was the perfect blend of citrus and chocolate; and last, but not least, the Lemon Ginger was just perfect with a hot cup of tea.  Now I just need to sample the Choco Chili – boy, I bet that is good!

Emmy’s Organic Macaroons can be purchased directly from the website or in select stores.  If you can’t make up your mind, there is a variety pack available where you can pick 6 different varieties for $16.95.
