Quinoa Qookies (DISCONTINUED)


The maker of Quinoa Qookies sent me a package to taste and review. I am always appreciative when I am asked to review products! I received this package in the mail and was excited to give a gluten free/dairy free cookie cookie a try. I do make most of the treats we eat here from scratch, but it's always nice to have a quick go to option in the pantry, and I am definitely drawn to healthier sweet options for my family.

I loved that these are made with quinoa, since that is one of my newly discovered favorite foods. I had not tried it in a sweet version yet, so I was looking forward to seeing how these taste. Of course, now that my husband has celiac, I am definitely happy when I see gluten free options that are healthy for him.

That being said, when I do a review, I always look at all aspects of the product and who it appeals to. I am a pretty open minded person when it comes to food because I know everybody has different tastes. I am a lot more open about the way natural sweet things taste and I normally try everything more than once to give it a chance. Because there are four of us here, I like to have everyone give it a try so I can give a full review.

Unfortunately, the quinoa qookies were not a favorite around here. I, personally, thought they were a good representation of a natural cookie. I thought they were kind of like a shortbread. I saw another review where they were said to be chewy and mine were not chewy at all. They weren't too sweet so they would go well with a nice cup of tea or coffee. My kids and husband were not very impressed. They are the cookie people in my family and since these are gluten free, I thought I would have the man with celiac give them a try.

I also looked up the price and how to get them. I have to say that $4.95 plus shipping seems a little expensive, to me, for three cookies. I know that there are others that would be willing to pay that price, but I just could not imagine doing it. I spoke with the creator of the cookie and he said that he sold out of them at a demo he did at a health food store just recently. So, it appears that a large amount of people do really like them! So, if you are looking for a go to sweet that is gluten and dariy free, I would say these Quinoa Qookies are worth a try.
