REVIEW: Mi-Del Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
Mi-Del Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
This weekend my hubby and I took a quick trip to Maine. (This is a real treat with the current high gas prices.) Right before headed home, we stopped at the grocery store for some goodies for the ride home. You know, water, fruit, chips, etc. I was in the mood for cookies. So, I picked up a package of Mi-Del Chocolate Sandwich Cookies. The price, for gluten-free cookies, was pretty reasonable. The package cost $2.69.
Turns out, I didn't end up eating them in the car. Once we got home, I felt like a snack and opened the package. (Let me just say, the folks at Mi-Del have done a good job matching their package to the blue Oreo package we all know and love(d).) I had high hopes for the cookies. I've sampled several other Mi-Del products with good results.
Then I bit into the cookie...it was hard. The cookie wasn't crisp at all! Under the pressure of my teeth (and I had to apply more pressure than I should have) the cookie broke but it was a rather jarring experience. Chomping through the cookie, my first impression was confirmed. The cookie didn't have a nice sandy Oreo-texture. No, this cookie was hard, dry and bland. The texture did not scream out "Oreo" at all. Big disappointment there.
I didn't even finish my cookie. It was that bad. (And I am always a girl who finishes her cookie!) My hubby was curious about the cookie; so, he took a bite. He agreed that they were bad and didn't finish his cookie.
Summary: Packaged to look like a gluten-free Oreo. This cookie looks and smells like the real thing. Sadly, it doesn't taste like an Oreo cookie or even a very good cookie! I would avoid this brand for eating out of hand. If you need to grind up a cookie for a pie crust, this cookie would be ideal.
