Intention Cookies (DISCONTINUED)

0

Recently we tried the four flavors of Intention Cookies from Bountiful Vegan. These cookies are as big as your face, so we broke them up so that everyone could try all of the different flavors.

Here they are. The measuring spoons are for scale.

The varieties are:

  • Prosperity–Choco Choco-Chip
  • Harmony–Lemon Snickerdoodle
  • Well-Being–Coconut Pineapple
  • Love–Chocolate Chip Orange

    Choco Choco-Chip cookie on regular-sized dinner plate. Huge!

Everyone liked Choco Choco-Chip the best, but we liked all four varieties very much. The Harmony and Well-Being cookies have a crisper consistency, while the Prosperity and Love chocolate chip cookies are a bit softer. I liked the creative mix of lemon and Snickerdoodle flavors in the Harmony cookie and the chocolate-orange combination in the Love cookie.



Taste Testing.

Intention Cookies are marketed with the idea that you read the intention on the back of the label and what you are asking for (love, well being, harmony, prosperity) will come to you as you eat. Maybe I'm just too Presbyterian, but this is a little New-Agey for my taste. If I purchase these cookies, it will be for their wonderful flavors and consistency, not for the promise of prosperity, or whathaveyou.

The kids wished that the cookies were smaller, so that they could have one all to themselves, and so that they would be easier to take along to events where we might need to provide dessert. I like the idea of packages of smaller-sized cookies. Scott thinks that they need to get away from the Intention idea entirely and just focus on the fact that they've created fantastic vegan (and therefore dairy-free) cookies.

These cookies are available on Bountiful Vegan's website for 4/$10. Currently the ingredients are not listed on the website, which is a change that needs to be made for us compulsive label readers. I would also like to see photos of the cookies on their site.
