Yes! To Cookies recently sent me some cookies to review. They sent me a package of Cocoa-Licious and Strawberry-Banana Blitz cookies. These are the only two flavors they offer. The cookies are "Zero Gluten, Zero Sugar, Zero Starch, Zero Worries", and as far as I am concerned, Zero Taste.
Yes! To Cookies are a healthy snack for people on diets, people who are diabetic, and people allergic to wheat gluten.
I am not a dieter. I am not diabetic, and I am not allergic to wheat gluten. Therefore, I am very used to eating real foods. This means, I love food. I eat sugars and fats and carbs. I love to cook and I love to eat. My family usually centers every family activites (ok, activities in general) around food. I am not used to eating diet products.
The cookies I am used to eating are buttery smooth, melt-in-your-mouth yummy, and have a light-ish texture. Yes! To Cookies are heavy, almost like a dense bread. The flavoring it does have is not exactly tastey.
Now, I didn't want to write a review without having other opinions, so I shared my Yes! To Cookies with my family. Here is the feed back I got (and yes, I am quoting!)
- My mother said, "These taste like dirt. Actually, I think dirt would taste better!"
- My uncle didn't say anything, he just made a face like he did when I was little and made him eat a playdoe pancake.
- My sister said, "These are the worst cookies I have ever had. They taste like cinnamon, dirt and mold. They even smell bad!" (my sister is 10 years old. I always take a kid's advice, they are too young to cover the truth with niceties)
As you can see, my family did not like these. I did not like these cookies. So, naturally, I am not recommending these to anyone.
**Yes! To Cookies sent me cookies in order for me to write a real and honest review. I did not get paid for this post.**
