12 Days of Celiac Christmas: #5 Enjoy Life

Today I’m reviewing Enjoy Life Crunchy Cookies! If you’re gluten-free and don’t know Enjoy Life, you are missing out! I’ve enjoyed several of their products before – Enjoy Life Plentils, Enjoy Life Mega Chunks, and Enjoy Life Double Chocolate Crunch Granola. I’ve always appreciated the fact that they’re FREE OF 8 COMMON ALLERGENS, gluten-free (obviously) and made in a dedicated facility. Don’t you just love not having to worry about anything!

I had the pleasure to receive some sample packs of cookies (thanks Enjoy Life), but I also had an opportunity to try them in Go Picnic snack boxes and at the Gluten Free & Allergen Free Expo in Chicago last year.

There are four flavors of the Crunchy Cookies: Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate, Sugar Crisp, and Vanilla Honey Graham.

The Chocolate Chip cookies were great for a crunchy cookie. They weren’t overly sweet, and I like that they feature the dairy-free chocolate chips!

But be careful, with these – and all of the crunchy cookies, make sure you seal them all properly after you open them, as they can get stale and soggy quickly! I recommend a ziplock bag for them – that is, if you can’t finish them all in one sitting!

Ingredients: Flour Mix (White Rice Flour, Buckwheat Flour, Millet Flour), Chocolate Chips (Evaporated Cane Juice, Chocolate Liquor (Non-Alcoholic), Non- Dairy Cocoa Butter), Palm Oil, Evaporated Cane Juice, Brown Pure Cane Sugar, Natural Flavor, Salt, Vanilla, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Baking Soda, Xanthan Gum, Rosemary Extract

Not surprisingly, I like the Double Chocolate flavor the most – because I can never get enough chocolate. The cookie isn’t too chocolate-y, not sweet enough to give you a toothache, but sweet enough to satisfy a chocolate craving. Again, they feature the awesome non-dairy chocolate chips.

Ingredients: Flour Mix (White Rice Flour, Buckwheat Flour, Millet Flour), Chocolate Chips (Evaporated Cane Juice, Chocolate Liquor (Non-Alcoholic), Non-Dairy Cocoa Butter), Palm Oil, Brown Pure Cane Sugar, Evaporated Cane Juice, Natural Process Cocoa Powder, Natural Flavors, Vanilla, Salt, Baking Soda, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Xanthan Gum, Rosemary Extract

The Vanilla Honey Graham were my least liked of the Enjoy Life Crunchy Cookies. Although I love graham crackers, these were more like graham cracker sugar cookie hybrids. They were good, just not my favorite of them. However, when we taste tested these with two non-GF dudes, one of them liked this the best!

Ingredients: Flour Mix (Brown & White Rice Flour, Buckwheat Flour, Millet Flour), Palm Oil, Brown Pure Cane Sugar, Evaporated Cane Juice, Honey, Natural Flavors, Vanilla, Salt, Baking Soda, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Rosemary Extract

We had company over and made a batch of high-end pour over coffee (we’re coffee snobs) and did a cookie-dunking taste test. The Non-GFBF lovingly poured my coffee in my South Beach mug I picked up when I was doing a focus group in Miami – hardeeharhar. Their mugs are both from Intelligentsia – an amazing coffee place from Chicago. We dunked the cookies in the coffee and declared the Sugar Crisp victorious.

The Sugar Crisps were great – a crispy sugar cookie. Now, I like my sugar cookies warm and soft, but these were a great way to have shelf-stable sugar cookies in a hurry! I could even decorate these cookies with icing for the holidays and maybe even pass them off as my own! 🙂

    Let’s see-I’d say the sugar cookie and the graham!
    I miss both and would love to find a cookie to eat as my nighttime cheat! 🙂

    I LOVE their crunchy cookies, especially the chocolate chip cookies. I told a lady at Whole Foods who looked lost in the g/f cookie section–she was telling the guy she was with that she didn’t know what to get “her”–to get them. 🙂

    Since I haven’t seen the double chocolate yet, those are the ones I’d like to try. People, if you haven’t had the sugar cookies–oh yeah, so yum, almost as good as the chocolate chip. And I keep buying the graham ones to make a pie crust and then eating them instead. LOL. 🙂
