The Life Changing Cookie

It has been quite a while since I’ve had a good cookie. So today I stopped by the grocery store and picked these up without any expectations, only to have my mind blown away!!! Exaggerating? Maybe slightly… But really. I think my opinion on this one will only steer you toward deliciousness.

These chocolate ones are similar to the Keebler’s Fudge Striped cookie, and having them took me back a decade (or more) to my sweet childhood of gluten rich days. Sure, they look a little anemic, but don’t be too quick to judge because the pale looking cookie combined with a chocolate dipped backing made the perfect marriage.

The vanilla ones are good too, and I will definitely buy them again…but the chocolate ones are a hard act to follow. For store bought gluten free cookies, these make an excellent snack. They are even individually wrapped in pairs for portion control!

Europe’s #1 gluten free? Yup. Verified by yours truly, the non-European!

GF Review: Study Snacks that Make the Grade

Not long ago, my best friend Karen was on a Lära Bar binge! So I decided to pick up a few flavors of the date-based bars to see what all the excitement was about, and to see if I could find a favorite for myself. Although I have yet to try them all, my current verdict: a toss up between the tart Apple Pie and the denser Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. In general, Lära Bars = a delicious study snack, and I will definitely be carrying these around in my white coat pocket when 3rd year rotations begin.

I know they don’t seem aesthetically appetizing, but if you can manage to look past that, you’ve got yourself a winning bar!
