Peppermint Chocolate

As we were driving home from visiting family yesterday, my daughter and I were brainstorming on how much chocolate peppermint everything we should buy before the aisles switch away from Christmas yummies and move onto Valentine’s Day. So imagine my delight when we pulled in the driveway and there was a package waiting on our doorstep from Goodie Girl Cookies. These sent us a Christmas present for being such loyal customers. HOW AWESOME IS THAT!?! These just so happen to be my daughter’s absolute favorite cookie. Gluten free Mint Slims (imagine if the girl scouts of america got their act together and made gluten free thin mints. If you haven’t ever tried these, get your booty over to the nearest Publix or Walmart and grab yourself a box. You won’t regret it. DEC_3711.JPG

Now, if you’re goodie girl-less but surrounded by Trader Joes than I can not encourage you to run fast enough and grab all the boxes of their peppermint Joe Joes (gluten free peppermint oreo style cookies).

I found, being gluten free, that both of these cookies miss the crunch of their gluten containing counterparts, so go ahead and toss them in the freezer. Something magical happens and these cookies become even more magnificient. Or you could do like my son does and crush them up and sprinkle on top of your ice cream sundae.

Whole Foods Product Review

While at a birthday party yesterday, the host surprised me with these special, little gems so I could be included in the birthday fun. SinceĀ  Whole Foods brand white bread and pie crusts are two of my very favorite things, I was super excited about these cookies.

MAR_4978These just go to show, you can’t be good at everything. Sorry Whole Foods, these were not a win for me. While they were soft and full of chocolatey flavor, they had more of a bread taste and consistency. They reminded me of the Udi’s muffins you find in the freezer section. A little too heavy and lacking in the sweet department. They weren’t awful, but definitely not winners in my books.

Now, back to that gf & dairy free white bread- it is the perfect bread for grilled cheese or any toasted sandwich and the Whole Foods brand gf pie crust is just as good as homemade.
