Lucy's Gluten Free Cookies

I have been meaning to share with you for months the ultimate in yard art:

Your eyes do not deceive you this person has the tail end of an airplane in their front yard.

I admit this is not the best photo, but I was trying to snap the pic while driving (not terribly safe).  

I am not sure what the significance is to them, but it is definitely different.

Today I want to share with you some cookies that I have sampled and absolutely fallen in love with.

Like all good moms Dr. Lucy Gibney created these cookies when she discovered her child had severe food allergies.

They have a dedicated bakery in which they select only the finest ingredients to ensure that none of the common allergens make their way in.  In fact peanuts and tree nuts aren't even allowed in the building.

The cookies are:

Gluten free
Contain no peanuts or tree nuts
0gm trans fat
0mg cholesterol
All natural

I know what some of you might thinking.  That the cookies won't be very tasty because of they are gluten free or that they just can't be good if they are vegan.

Well I am here to let you know that is just not the case. 

I was sent 3 varieties to try:

Currently Lucy's offers 7 flavors total:

Sugar Cookie
Cinnamon Thin
Chocolate Chip
Oatmeal Cookie
Ginger Snap
Maple Bliss
Chocolate (which is a chocolate cookie with chocolate chips..my favorite)

The flavors are out of this world and the cookies have just the most delicious crunch to them.  Should you not scarf the entire box down the cookies will retain their crispness for several weeks once opened. 

All of the varieties are good by my favorite (no surprise to my husband) was the chocolate and chocolate chip.  These cookies had tons of chocolate chips in them and my sweet tooth craving was perfectly satisfied with one or two cookies (that doesn't mean you don't want to eat the whole box just that you will be satisfied after 1 or 2).

However let me say that the maple bliss was perfect with a scoop of coconut milk ice cream and the ginger snaps had quite a bite to them (a little too spicy for my children, but I enjoyed them very much with a cup of hot tea).  So for those of you who aren't chocolate fans the maple and ginger can provide a delicious treat.
I always like to share some love when I have a product to sample so I would like to offer to one of you, my wonderful readers, a chance to win a box of Lucy's cookies (so you can taste the deliciousness for yourself).

  7. Wow that is a bizarre piece of art on their front lawn! I bet it's got an interesting story behind it. You'll have to knock one day and ask them ;)
    Those cookies look amazing! I would love to try them, but I don't like the idea of you paying the shipping costs to get them to me (if I was indeed the lucky winner). I'll ask my cabin crew friend to look out for them next time she's in the US x
