The short of it is that they're:
- Don't taste healthy (or fruity) - just decadent chewy double chocolate cookie goodness
- Very rich and great with the extra walnut crunch and melty pockets of chocolate chip goodness throughout
So what if they're a little crumbly? They may make a bit of a mess, but it's so worth it. OH MY GOSH, are they delicious - and very chocoholic friendly. Plus, the ingredients make them mom approved. ;)
What I mean by that is that they pack 2 servings into what any unsuspecting consumer (especially little kids) would think is a single serving packet. And, though it's a massive, mall-sized cookie that most people (unless they're trying to gain weight) don't need, it's hard to stop at just half of the cookie. Besides, the cookie is filling and flavorful enough that half of it (aka one serving) would otherwise do.
That said, the whole cookie filled me up as much as a sandwich would and kept me going (I had it as a work snack) from the ER, to the blood lab, to the endoscopy, to the ICM, and back again. ;)
You know I love these! Chocolate? Walnuts? Fudgy goodness without refined sugar and with whole grains as the first ingredient? Yes, please!
