cookie of the week: glutino chocolate vanilla creme cookies

welcome to a new feature on our blog called 'cookie of the week.' we had been planning to do a review of a few different cookies a while ago, but it seemed like there were too many for just one post. the longer we waited (procrastinated) there seemed to be even more cookies on the market to choose from. I am not, nor have I ever been a huge cookie fan, but when I see a new gluten free cookie that I have never tried before, I get curious. I think I am strung along by the temptation that maybe, just maybe, I will strike gold and find THE BEST GLUTEN FREE COOKIE EVER. well, I have to admit I have not found that elusive cookie. I have found some decent cookies however, but I have also been met with huge disappointment. it doesn't help matters that the cookies that are often the most disappointing, are the most expensive! 

I was very excited recently to stumble upon an Oreo look-a-like, made by Glutino, and I have to admit I was intrigued. as soon as I saw them I started replaying all those warm and fuzzy Oreo television commercials over and over in my mind, I could remember splitting the cookies open and eating the creme filling first, and dipping the rest in milk...I'm sure you get the nostalgia here. these Glutino Oreo look-a-like cookies are called Chocolate Vanilla Creme Cookies. it's not short and sweet like the name Oreo, but that's ok, it kind of reminds of when no name brand foods came along. I am sure for most people a chocolate vanilla creme cookie will always be an Oreo!

so how do they taste? pretty good! certainly not the same as I remember an Oreo tasting like. but they are nicely sweet, and chocolatey, you can pull them apart and follow your heart. dip them in milk, and you will feel like a kid again. these cookies are well priced compared to other gluten free cookies. one package of cookies costs around $5.00, and you get about 24 cookies, sorry I didn't count them, I just ate them! this is pretty good since one of the other cookies we are going to review costs the same but there are only two cookies in the package!!!

the Glutino chocolate creme cookies are of course gluten free, and they are also dairy free, yeast free, and kosher. they do contain soy, eggs, and corn. perhaps the only negative is that they are not organic, but hey, it's an Oreo look-a-like!  happy dipping!  Andrea.

have you already tried the kinnickinnick ones? they are by FAR the most "authentic" oreo-y type cookie. i won't say they're better than these ones, but closer to the real thing for sure. ;)

I have tried both and think that these cookies by Glutino are just like an oreo and they are great with milk too!

The GLUTINO G-F Chocolate Creme Cookies are waaaay better than Oreos!
I have always been disappointed with Oreos. They tempt me with the dark chocolate look and then they are nothing but sickly sweet. GLUTINO's take on the dunk-able double-decker delight is everything and more: chocolaty, sweet, but not overly so, twist-able, playful, and delicious.
I wished I had known about Glutino sooner, even before I lived G-F.

Hell yes! These cookies are amazing!
