Cybele’s Free to Eat Cookies are Mom-Made and Free of Top Allergens

4

Warning: Once opened, you will not be able to stop eating these cookies! I still remember my first taste of Cybele’s Free to Eat Cookies at a trade show years ago. Allergen-free or not, these are some of the best boxed cookies!

My opinion was validated two years later at Expo West. As we chatted with the vivacious company founder, my husband and niece happily sampled every flavor of Cybele’s Free to Eat Cookies. Tony went back for seconds, and my niece who can eat gluten, dairy, eggs, and nuts, proclaimed the cookies “best of show”.

Tasting Notes for Cybele’s Free to Eat Cookies

Each bite of Cybele’s Free to Eat Cookies was full of buttery goodness, and had a homemade “just like mom used to make” taste. We finally picked up some boxes for home, and were still dazzled by the flavors and tender goodness. Please note that the photos I took show the old packaging. However I’ve included images of the new packaging above and below.

Chocolate Chip

We all adored the Chocolate Chip. The flavor is just sweet enough, vanilla-rich, and perfectly salted. Pretty much spot on. The texture is soft and tender, but not overly chewy. And of course, the best part is the loads of delicious semi-sweet chocolate chips within.

Chocolate Chunk Brownie

These cookies are true to their title. Each bite is reminiscent of a tender vegan brownie with generous chocolate chunks. It’s a true chocoholic’s dream with full dessert-like intensity.

Oatmeal Raisin

This flavor has delightful buttery goodness, earthy sweetness, and an oat-rich yet tender texture. This variety is just a little chewier and a touch less soft than the Chocolate Chip. I haven’t tried freezing them, but my bet is that these Cybele’s Free to Eat Cookies would make killer ice cream sandwiches.

Each bite of these allergen-free cookies is full of perfectly sweet goodness and a homemade “just like mom used to make” taste. The Chocolate Chip are tender with VERY generous amounts of chocolate chips, the Oatmeal Raisin are chewy and buttery, and the Chocolate Chunk Brownie offer a delicious double-dose of the good stuff.
