Review: Enjoy Life Crunchy Cookies

Enjoy Life has been a well known name in the gluten-free food industry for a while now, 10 years to be exact.  They make a wonderful variety of gluten-free products that are not only gluten-free, but free of many other allergens as well.  Enjoy Life has become a brand to depend on for those needing allergen-free food & treats.

Enjoy Life introduced a few new products to their line-up earlier this year.  We finally had a chance to sample the Crunchy Cookies over the past few weeks.

I had a hard time keeping Jon away from these.  Before I knew it, he had broken into the double chocolate chip and starting making sandwich cookies using some frosting we had in the refrigerator.  Since we are trying to get him to gain weight, I didn’t have a huge problem with this.  Better him than me, right?  He devoured the box in no time at all, though I did manage to get a few excellent tasting crumbs.  Next he moved onto the chocolate chip, which he said tasted a lot like the gluten-filled Chips Ahoy cookies. I had to completely agree with him on this one, which in and of itself was painful.  Since when do teenage boys & their mothers agree on anything?  When fantastic gluten-free cookies are involved, that is when!  We were not disappointed with the sugar crisp or vanilla honey graham.  The vanilla honey graham would be the perfect base for s’mores!  Grab a Hershey’s chocolate bar and some marshmallows and you have a wonderful summer treat!

Enjoy Life products can be found in many grocery stores across the US and online as well.  Amazon is now carrying the crunchy cookies for $2.80/box or $16.43/case of 6 (when you sign up for Subscribe & Save).

Have you tried the new crunchy cookies by Enjoy Life?  Do you have a favorite?
