Recently, my family had the opportunity to try Chrysalis Cookies Frozen Cookie Doughs, which are all dairy-free.
I have a very hard time being critical of allergen-free foods. So many of them are made by small, startup companies, often run by a person with a food allergy or a relative of a food-allergic person. They are trying hard to do a good thing. They are being gutsy and starting their own businesses. So I really, really hate saying, “Nice try, but your product tastes like dirt and has the consistency of sawdust.”
It’s like when you’re teaching your kids to clean the house. Sure, they do a crappy job and there are still crumbs all over the floors they just swept, but they tried. And you want to praise them for the effort, if not the actual result. “Ok, yes, your product tastes bad, but, hey! It’s dairy and wheat free, and it’s so healthy! Good job, Honey!”
Fortunately, this is not an issue I had to face when reviewing Chrysalis Cookies because they are AWESOME. Twenty cookies were delivered to our house, and they were gone in less than twenty-four hours. The kids and I will eat just about any health-conscious treat, but Scott will not. When eating the Chrysalis Cookies, he said, “You know I don’t take cookies lightly. I wouldn’t say these were good unless I really liked them. These cookies are good.”
We received a sample of each of their five flavors: Unbelievable Chocolate Chip, Old Fashioned Molasses, Granny’s Chocolate Crinkles, Very Vanilla Sugar, and Chewy Cranberry Oatmeal. We liked them ALL. I kid you not. They are all great, with a wonderful, chewy texture, good flavors, and the perfect amount of salt.
The 1.5 ounce frozen cookie dough portions are packed in 36-count bags. You just place them on a baking sheet (the phrase you’re looking for to describe mine is “well seasoned”), let them thaw so you can flatten them out a bit, bake, and EAT. I mean, “let cool, then eat.”
I would love to see these cookies in every coffee shop, cafeteria, and grocery store in the country.
