Review: Udi’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

It is no secret that I love all things Udi’s, so I picked up some of their chocolate chip cookies the last time I was in Kroger.  Udi’s makes 3 different kinds of gluten-free cookies – chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin & snickerdoodle.  The unique thing about their cookies is that they are only sold in Kroger stores. 

Each package of cookies contains approximately 6 servings or 12 cookies and costs $6.99  The cookies are not only gluten-free, but soy- & nut-free as well.  Upon first glance the cookies did not appear as appetizing as some of Udi’s other products, but knowing what I know about the quality of their products, I went ahead & purchased the cookies.  I am extremely glad that I made that choice because these cookies were some of the best packaged cookies that I have ever had – gluten-free or not.  I considered eating the whole container at one sitting, but am happy to report that I was able to restrain myself.  I thought it would be nice to share with Jon when he got home from school.

Based on the form/shape of the cookie, I thought they would be a crunchy-type cookie.  I was wrong.  These cookies were moist & chewy, but not overly so.  The flavor was full of buttery, chocolatey vanilla goodness.  Jon dove into the cookies as soon as he got home from school and had the same opinion as I did – these cookies rock!  I had to put a limit on the number he could eat and ended with “Please make sure to leave me 2 more”.   Like most teenage boys, this kid can eat.  I blink & food disappears around here. 

I believe that I will be making a return trip to Kroger this week to pick up the other 2 varieties of the cookies that Udi’s has in stock there.  I am sure that Jon will love the snickerdoodles and I know that he won’t touch the oatmeal raisin, which means they will be all mine!  <insert evil laugh here>

Another product that I keep seeing in stores all over from Udi’s that I have yet to try is the granola.  I haven’t picked any up because I have several packages of gluten-free granola in my pantry and can’t justify stockpiling any more.  Once spring hits and I start eating more berries and yogurt, I will begin to go through my stash again. 

Udi’s cookies can only be found in Kroger stores, but their other products can be found online and in stores across the US.  Have you tried Udi’s cookies or granola yet?  What did you think?

    I have had the granola and it is very good. It’s on the sweet side but a bit short on the dried fruit. I used it to make a Dutch Apple Pie topping as well. I actually found it at the local Marshall’s.

    I Look forward to trying the cookies, especially the snickerdoodle, my all time favorite kind of cookie!

    I hear there is a Smith’s (Kroger company) in town that has Udi’s bread now, so perhaps they will have the cookies. I will have to go check it out! My Smith’s does not have any Udi’s stuff so far. Grrr.

    I picked some of these up at Whole Foods, so they must have expanded their market since this was written. I’ve had the Snickerdoodles, the choc. chip and the oatmeal raisin. They are all divine.

    I actually bought Udi’s at Walmart recently!

    The 2 new Udi’s breads (millet/chia and flax) are quite good – got to try them at a recent expo. Interesting that the only place near me that has them is Giant – not WF or MOM’s.
