Glow Gluten Free Cookies

I have been meaning to review Glow Gluten Free cookies for ages, but I haven't gotten around to posting until now.  I have to say the packaging attracted me initially when I saw them at Whole Foods.  They are just so bright and cheery that you can't help but pick them up to see what they are all about.  I was a bit dubious about buying them though because A) they are about $8 a pop, which is steep in my book when it comes to cookies of any sort and B) they aren't soft-baked, but the novelty won out over my wallet and I bought them.

Picture 5Now, I'm a milk and cookies kind of person.  I like to dunk my cookies in milk until they are soft and then eat them, so finding a good dunkable cookie is high on my list. 

Kinnikinnick's KiniToo's meet that requirement and then some because they are lactose free, but I digress.  Anyway, the Glow cookies are good in flavor, but they are hard and crumbly, making for a poor milk dunking cookie, which was disappointing for me, but not a deal breaker.  In fact, I think that if they made a soft-baked version of their cookies they'd have a real winner because while there are tons of gluten free cookie options on the market, not many are soft-baked. 

I do enjoy Glow cookies despite their crunchy texture and after visiting their siteI feel less guilty about eating them because they are supposedly lower in fat and calories than other snack foods. Who knew?!
