Did I happen to get your attention with that title? The product review I have for today, sure got mine…
Liz Lovely makes cookies, and safe to say, some of the best cookies ever baked. I mean, come on, German Chocolate Cake, Coconut Lemon, Oatmeal Raisin, Chocolate Moose Dragons? If there are cookies offered in those flavors, you know you’re in good hands.
The second I saw Liz Lovely’s cookie company website, I had to take advantage. I ordered myself the Newbie Gluten Free Gift Sampler consisting of German Chocolate Cake, Oatmeal Raisin, Triple Chocolate Mint, and Coconut Lemon flavors. I also added the Gluten Free Chocolate Fudge cookie, because who can pass up a fudgie cookie? And really, who would want to? Katie wouldn’t.
The Gluten Free Triple Chocolate Mint and the Chocolate Fudge flavors were my favorites. Soft, but not too soft, with a slight outer crunch to the crust. Moist, but still crumbly when bitten into. Covered in a sugary fairy dust, or just some product of magic. The dark chocolaty cookie, the Chocolate Fudge Cookie, sprinkled with chocolate chips throughout, made a truly delicious cookie. And I’m putting it all out there (on my cookie making abilities) when I say that Liz Lovely cookies are some of the best I have ever had. *GASP*
The Gluten Free German Chocolate Cake, which includes fudge, walnuts, and coconut, had a textural component, that for me, grainy yet pleasing. The taste was dead-on to what a German chocolate cake would taste like. And I liked it. The Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin was super good and reminded me of real, fresh, gluteny, oatmeal cookies. Coconut Lemon, also gluten free, was very macaroon-like with the flaky coconut, soft lemon cookie, and the sweet/tangy taste.
So good, I was sold at one bite. And with it being gluten free and vegan, what is not to love? They use all organic ingredients, pay their employees a livable wage, buy only fair traded ingredients, and has the cutest website. The ingredients, although using sugar (I usually use a sub such as honey or dates), are all real ingredients… and when you want a cookie, you want it sweetened to perfection, right? At least I do.
I did not get paid for this review, nor did I get free cookies, but nonetheless, the kind people at Liz Lovely did help me out when I contacted them about purchasing some goodies, and make such a great cookie with a conscious behind it, I’m now, and will continue to be, a die-hard customer. My jeans better get used to it…
Thanks for your help Cowboy Dan!
*My cookie making abilities are just fine. Actually, I do make pretty damn good cookies, but for comparison purposes, this allusion to sub par-ism was used. But Liz Lovely’s cookies were some of the best I’ve ever tasted. Really.
And… THE Cookie Swap is coming. Get ready!
