Product Review: Lucy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted by: Marissa on Feb. 11, 2011

In the world of chocolate chip cookies there are a lot of options. They can be soft, chewy, crunchy, sweet, mild… You get the picture. For every option out there, there is someone who craves that certain cookie. For me, personally, Lucy’s chocolate chip cookies are not what I crave most often, but maybe they are exactly the cookie you have been looking for.

Lucy’s Chocolate Chip Cookies are peanut free, tree nut free, milk free, egg free and gluten free. They are made from a flour containing oats which gives them an extra bit of bite and texture.

The cookies are very crisp. Let me say again - Very Crisp. They have a texture that reminds me more of cereal than cookies. The bonus is that the cookies are light, not a bit hard or heavy.

The oat flavor from the flour carries into the cookies, but not enough to call them oatmeal chocolate chip. They are very tasty with the small exception of an odd background flavor that I couldn’t place. For the most part, I was very pleased with the flavor.

Each cookie carries a generous amount of chocolate chips. This is a big bonus for me. The chocolate is silky and smooth with a great flavor.

Overall, I was a bit disappointed with the texture of these cookies but enjoyed the flavor. I do recommend them for people who like really crispy cookies.

    I think it's great that Lucy's cookies are so allergy friendly. However I do want to point out that for those avoiding legumes, be aware that these contain garbanzo flour. Garbanzo is a bean/legume. It's another name for chick pea. I was thrilled when the product reached Starbucks counters and I thought we'd be set because we have peanut, treenut and egg allergies plus more -but then I read the full ingredient label. Finding garbanzo flour was a complete surprise as I've never seen it in cookies myself. But just goes to show you, just because it's labeled in the front a specific way, you still always need to read the full ingredient label.
