Midel Cookies

Author: Healthnuttxo

 

There’s nothing quite like a cookie. Some have cute designs, some are sweet, some are rich, some soft, chewy, etc. I think it’s hard not to have a favorite cookie!

What is hard, however, is finding cookies that are both tasty but don’t have things like preservatives, trans fats, artificial colors, flavors, etc. However, Midel Cookies make a large assortment of cookies that are all natural and still taste good. They make gluten free, organic, bite sized and more types of products, to fit the needs of a variety of people.

Midel Cookies were nice enough to send me a box of some of their goodies, and I decided to review about the Vanilla Snaps, Oatmeal Raisin Snaps, and the Organic Bite Sized Snickerdoodles.

Vanilla Snaps- these were quite delicious. They had a nice vanilla and buttery flavor, and I tried these with my cousin who agreed they tasted very similar to a sugar cookie. And,well,- these CERTAINLY live up to the “snap” part of the name! They are very crispy and crunchy, and overall a very hard cookie. However, they do have sort of an “off” texture with the crunch- as they are also a bit “sticky”. I mean “sticky” as in once you chew them, they kind of stay in your teeth and are a bit chewy. That’s the only drawback to this cookie- for taste, alone, I would definitely give it 4 1/2 stars, but the texture bring these down to a 3 1/2.

Oatmeal Raisin Snaps- yum!! These taste just like homemade oatmeal cookies, but crispy! These had a better texture than the vanilla ones, and were very sweet! You could taste the cane juice, but they also a nice buttery flavor, just like the vanilla ones. I tried these with my mom, who enjoyed them, but thought they needed more of a raisin flavor. I agree, and I also think they would be great with some milk. 4 stars

Organic Bite Sized Snickerdoodles- these are TOO CUTE! They are literally the size of buttons, and just perfect to eat one by one, or by the handful. When you open the bag, oddly enough, they smell like cinnamon graham crackers. But, they taste like sweet shortbread cookies, with a slight vanilla flavor. Very soft and almost a “bready”/crumbly texture. Or, almost like a biscuit-like cookie. Warning- these are totally addictive! Especially because they are small, you really could just keep eating these by the handful! These get 4 stars because they are a bit high in saturated fat, and have no fiber, but are still good!

Overall, these cookies are yummy. Quite addictive, and very tasty. Some drawbacks are that they are low in fiber, and a bit high in sugar. Yet, they are cookies, so I wasn’t really expecting low sugar counts and high fiber anyway. I would give them a try- you might like them! 🙂
