Enjoy Life Soft baked Snickerdoodle Cookies- gluten, dairy, peanuts tree nuts, casein, potato, sesame egg, and soy free cookies

These small, round cookies come 12 to a package, and since it has been literally years since I have had a snickerdoodle, I thought I’d give these a shot. I found them while shopping at a natural foods store with my mom in the twin cities area in Minnesota, where I grew up. ( And no, I do not have the MN accent anymore! If you are from there, or have visited, you know what I am talking about.) Plus, I haven’t tried any of the Enjoy Life cookies yet.

When I opened the box I was impressed that the clear a packaging was shaped to separate these soft cookie. Too bad the packaging didn’t work. Each row of cookies was mashed together in one large snickerdoodle tower. I think the cookies need to be a bit larger to fit the grooves in the packaging. Anyway, the cookies separated with minimal damage, so it wasn’t a big deal.

When the packaging says that these cookies are soft baked- they are not joking. They are, in fact, very soft and chewy with no crumbling. You can literally sink your teeth into one of these small cookie confections. There isn’t any chalkiness or grittiness, and the texture is pleasant and not at all gluten-free tasting. These cookies are coated with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar, and for me, this was the only resemblance of a snickledoodle flavor. The cookies themselves are sweet and fruity tasting, thanks to the healthy dose of date paste and fruit juices in the ingredients. In fact, I could see and taste small chunks of the date paste. (Too bad I am not a huge fan of dates.) There is a strong spice flavor comparable to soft gingerbread. Overall, they are decent cookies.

Pros: Soft and chewy, nice spice flavor, excellent texture
Cons: Doesn’t really taste like a true snickerdoodle, fruity flavor, flawed packaging

Rating: 3 1/2 stars

    I have not tried the Snickerdoodle variety of this brand. But my son enjoys the chocolate chip and double chocolate flavors.

    I trialed the snickerdoodle and the chocolate chip, and I must confess that the snickerdoodle had me hooked! If you are okay with the date-like flavor in the chocolate chip, then you likely won’t have a problem with it in the snickerdoodle, as I thought the overall flavor melded better. I agree, not traditional snickerdoodles, but tasty!
