Ah, yet another one of my favorite reviews… COOKIES! 🙂
Betty Lou’s is a company that makes a large assortment of foods, from granola bars to protein balls, and even cookies too! They make products that cater to the needs of many, such as products that are gluten free, dairy free, organic, etc.
The folks at Betty Lou’s were super generous and sent me some of their products, including 3 of their Johnny & Fred’s Chewpreme cookies. These cookies are 100 calories each, and come in 3 flavors, White Chocolate Brownie, Oatmeal Raisin, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. They are your standard size cookie, at 1 oz each, they are not too big but not bite sized, and are made with all natural ingredients.
I tried the White Chocolate Brownie one first, as it looked the most exciting. It was a dark cookie with white chocolate chips throughout. I took a bite out of it, and, WOAH! This cookie is GOOD! It was FUDGY! Just like a brownie! Sweet and chewy, with a lovely chocolatey flavor. The white chocolate chips were so tasty, crispy and sweet like vanilla. this one gets 4 1/2 stars and is my favorite of the 3 cookies.
Oatmeal Raisin- This one was also very good. Very moist and softer than the others, it tasted just like homemade. It was buttery, and very sweet, especially with the raisins, and had a light cinnamon flavor. There were also little pieces of walnuts that added a nice touch. Deeeeee-lish. 4 stars
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip- This one was the smallest in size of the three. It didn’t have a very strong peanut butter taste, and overall really tasted like a chocolate chip cookie with a slight “sweet” peanut butter taste. It sort of reminded me of when you buy a peanut butter flavored protein bar, how it has that “sweet” peanut butter taste. Otherwise, it was actually quite good! There was a good amount of sweet, milk chocolate flavored chips. I even put 1 half of the cookie in the microwave- yum yum yum! The chocolate chips melted and were all gooey, and it just really made the cookie. 4 stars
Overall, I really enjoyed these cookies. I can’t believe they are only 100 calories each, and have no trans fats or artificial ingredients/preservatives! I think they are great as a snack with a glass of milk, a yogurt, or some fruit, and are a great, natural way to add some sweetness to your day. I also like that they each have some fiber (2-3 grams per cookie), and actually are a decent sized. If you’re a cookie fan- I would give these a try! 🙂
