If you’re after a big protein cookie and you don’t care about anything else, then this is a cookie for you. Packed with protein, energy and a bit of fat should fill you for a while.
If you don’t like cookies, then this is not a post for you. And if you don’t like cookies made of oatmeal and raisins, then… well… then we don’t know what to say. Anyway, if you aren’t one of them, then read on to find out why this cookie is not too bad after all. Because it’s not perfect for sure, but it’s not too bad either.
This cookie welcomes you with a lovely and intense smell. Both oatmeal and raisins are easily detectable. And we would lie if we said it doesn’t encourage to bite into it. And it won’t be too difficult, as the cookie is softish and easy to bite into and chew. However, keep in mind it won’t be easy to eat without a sip of water or any drink, as this cookie it considerably dry. It is also slightly chewy and only barely sticks to your teeth.
When it comes to taste, it’s a bit of let down.
We expected, as promised on the package, to enjoy ‘oatmeal & raisins’, but we got a bland buttery taste with a raisin to be found here and there. There’s also easily detectable baking cookie aroma and all we can say about it is it’s just OK. Fortunately, there’s no weird aroma nor aftertaste at all, but is it something that makes that difference here? We don’t think so.
Do we want another serving after the first one? Well, considering we know its pretty average (but not too bad) taste and its macros (a massive one!), then no, one serving is just fine.
So what about macros here? A 75g cookie is a big boy with an enormous 300 kcal per serving, 9.2g of fat, 30.5g of carbs (of which only 5.3g of sugar) and a sturdy 23g of protein. On the ingredients list, we’ll find our ‘favourite’ added sugar and palm oil. There’s no any syrup here, but again, it doesn’t make any vital difference.
Can it be a sustainable cookie on the go? With this taste and macros… Nope.
This is not a cookie for fitness cookie monsters.
Not that it’s a bad cookie. But it’s not anything we’d be missing. Not bad taste is still a bit different than what cookie’s packaging states. And it’s a bit dry too. It surely won’t do the job as a sweet treat, neither a fit treat. And it can be only considered as a regular cookie with a higher amount of protein. But is it enough to be the first choice?
Will we ever go back to that cookie? That being said, we honestly don’t think so.
