I buy a lot of GF products from the grocery store. I buy them once, try them, and that’s usually the last time it happens. Why do I buy? I can cook all my own food, I certainly don’t need convenience foods, but I like to test things out to see how good they are. I like to see how other pastry chef’s are doing in creating good GF goodies.
I got in touch with Glow Gluten Free, who I found out about through the magic of Twitter. I got all four flavors of their cookies. Several days later there was a knock on the door and the postman handed me a box. I yelled, “Cookies have arrived” and a flurry of activity ensued at my house. We all gathered in the kitchen hovering over the box. The box was opened and WOW-look at the packaging! Cool packaging, just enough to cover the product and not enough to be environmentally wasteful. Gorgeous colors, nicely done logo, great photography-just WOW! Because of the packaging I was excited to eat the product.
Crinkling of cellophane from inside the box. Crunching and munching all around the kitchen. Just so you know, of the five of us in my household, 3 are not GF, two are GF (me and the baby). Two non-GF pre-teens loved the Double Chocolate. Went around with crumbs in the corner of their mouths for the rest of the day. Non-GF husband loved the Gingersnaps. Baby-Double Choc and Gingersnaps. Me-(in order) Double Choc, Gingersnaps, Choc Chip, Snickerdoodle.
Quite frankly I was surprised at their awesomeness. Crunchy cookies on the first day. I did an experiment and left them open for several days. First of all , they got a little soft which was delicious too. Second of all, they did not get stale and gross! After several days open they were still flavorful and delicious. That is amazing news!
Bottom line: buy these cookies! They taste good, smell good, look good and have a small ingredient list. They are GF/CF and all-natural. Please go to their website to find out which retailers carry Glow Gluten Free! Note to Texas: there is only 1 place in Texas where these are carried! Ask you local stores to carry these, you won’t be sorry!
