It is no secret that I have a rather large sweet tooth and I make no apologies. The gluten-free cookie aisle is probably my favorite aisle in the market and I am always amazed at the constant addition of new-to-me brands that keep popping-up. One of those brands has become a fast favorite of mine – Goodie Girl.
My love affair started with their Midnight Brownie cookies. I mean a dark chocolate cookie base that is peppered with chunks of rich dark chocolate – yes, please. The cookie base is mildly sweet allowing for the chocolate chunks to really add just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering. These are perfectly crispy little pieces of gluten-free cookie heaven. Can you ever go wrong with double-chocolate? I think not. What’s nice about these is that they are not overly sweet and perfectly balanced so you can truly enjoy the robust earthiness of the chocolate flavor.
The Mint Slims are, in a word, amazing. If you miss those familiar seasonal mint cookies sold by the girls in green outfits — than these are most definitely for you. These are hands-down the absolute closest surrogate you will ever find. They are indistinguishable from their gluten-filled counterparts with the once exception that you’ll be able to recognize all the ingredients on the label. The dark chocolate base is crunchy perfection with that familiar boost of peppermint flavor that releases as you begin to chew into the cookie. As if that was not enough, these are also enrobed in a rich chocolate coating that adds a final hint of sweetness to these classic cookies.
You can learn more about all of Goodie Girls gluten-free cookie flavors on their website where you can also find a store near you that carries them or order right online and have them shipped directly to your front door. So embrace your sweet tooth and order a couple of bags because if you love cookies like I do these will not last long at all.
