Cookie time! Cookie time! ūüôā

Cookies are amazing. Chewy, soft, crunchy, chocolatey, sweet, buttery, there are all SORTS and kinds of cookies! What’s REALLY awesome, is when the cookies taste good, AND they are good for you. Which leads me too..

Mi-Del Cookies! This company makes a bunch of products, including the 3 that they generously sent me that I am going to review today. The lucky three today are the Bite Sized Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, the Gluten Free S’Mores cookies, and the Maple Munchies cookies. Let’s begin!

Bite Sized Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies- well, first off, I think bite sized is just tooo cute! These are tiny, about the size of a penny each, which means a serving size is¬† 23 cookies (30 grams). That’s my kinda serving size! They are a light brown in color, with mini chocolate chips. I tasted a few, and I certainly could taste the oatmeal part of the cookie. It was slightly salty and buttery tasting, and really not too sweet. What was a tad disappointing was I didn’t really taste much of the chocolate part of the cookie. However, I think these would be good with a glass of ice, cold milk. 3 stars

Gluten Free S’mores- The package states these are “Chocolate Graham Cookies with Marshmallows”, and these come in 90 calories packs. I was actually impressed, because I got a decent amount of these cookies for 90 calories! Each cookie is a dark brown in color, with little white specks. They are about the size of a half- dollar, and actually quite thick. How’s the taste? ….
AWESOME!
I really enjoyed these. They were crunchy and crispy, and a sweet chocolate cookie. The little marshmallow bits tasted like little bits of vanilla icing. Really tasty, and I really enjoyed the CRUNCH these provided. The only down side in my opinion was that they lacked fiber, and contained corn syrup solids. Otherwise, 4 1/2 stars!

Maple Munchies- the package describes these cookies as “Maple Shortbread Cookies”, and these come in a 100 calorie pack.¬† Now, I’m a big fan of maple, so I was happy to try these. They are about the same size as the Gluten Free S’mores cookies, but not as hard or crunchy, and a much softer melt-in-your-mouth cookie. They did have a buttery, shortbread taste, with just a slight maple taste. I do wish they had more maple flavor, and were a just a bit sweeter, but they were still quite good. 4 stars

Overall, Mi-Del Cookies certainly do not disappoint! I highly reccomend trying at least the Gluten Free S’mores cookies, as those were very delicious. I think I might even dip them in some marshmallow fluff for some added enjoyment! ūüôā

Bite-Sized Oatmeal Chocolate Chip- 23 cookies (30 grams) is 130 calories, 6 grams of fat, 18 carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 7 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein.

Gluten Free S’mores- 1 pack (23 grams) is 90 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 17 carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, 7 grams of sugar and 1 gram of protein.

Maple Munchies- 1 pack (23 grams) is 100 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 14 grams of carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 4 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein.

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! ūüôā
Oatmeal Raisin Snaps- 5 cookies is 130 calories, 4.5 grams of fat, 21 carbohydrates, 1 gram of fiber, 10 grams of sugar, and 2 grams of protein.

Midel makes a whole bunch of products, and they have a gluten free line. Midel makes the cookies and snacks without preservatives, trans fats, or artificial ingredients. Some of them are even dairy free! I got to try the Arrowroot, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Caramel, and Chocolate Sandwich varieties sent to me by the company.

Arrowroot-uhhh, Deliiishh! Nice and buttery flavor! These were sweet and crispy animal shaped crackers. Too cute! I particularly liked the polar bear and the camel. Almost too cute to eat ūüėČ These have a light vanilla flavor as well, and i think they taste better than the original animal crackers. They aren’t as dry or bland in my opinion, and have more of a buttery/vanilla flavor. 4 stars!

Chocolate Chip-These were good! The cookie is crispy and has a buttery taste to it. They have a golden brown color and have a good amount of chocolate chunks in them. They have the right amount of sweetness- not overpowering at all. A good Chocolate Chip cookie replacement! (plus- you get 5 in a serving! whoop!) 4 stars!

Chocolate Caramel- these were bite sized caramel goodness! At first it’s a strong chocolate flavor, but then, a sweet caramel flavor floods your mouth. These are really good, and good for munching on ūüôā Each is also the size of about a penny, and you get to eat 23 of them for only 110 calories. Wooo! I’m giving these 5 stars ūüôā

Chocolate Sandwich- yum!¬†Very good. It’s very chocolatey, and has a nice crunch to it. The wafer part is crispy but soft at the same time. I also like the cream on the inside. Sweet and smooth, like it should be. 4 stars ūüôā

¬†So, viola!¬†Cookies for those of you who are sensitive to gluten that taste good! Hey, Midel’s cookies are good for those who can have gluten as well ūüėČ Overall, i’m giving them 4 stars. All natural, yummy treats everyone can enjoy.The only downside is that they are short of fiber.
