Glutino Vanilla Dreams Sandwich Cookies- gluten free/ wheat free/ egg free

Gluitno vanilla dreams sandwich cookies gluten wheat egg free

Hmmm, after by disappointing experience with the vanilla KinniToos sandwich cookies, I was hoping these cookies would make up for it. There has to be at least one good GF sandwich cookie out there, right? I just remember having these types of cookies when I was growing up- there’ s just something comforting about a childhood memory of dunking sandwich cookies in a cold glass of milk.

A package of these cookies costs $4.69 in my area, but Glutino was generous enough to send me a sample to review for this site. Thanks Glutino! My favorite feature of these cookies is the packaging- the cookies are twin wrapped to preserve freshness. Smart call Glutino, because these cookies go stale in the bat of an eye if left unsealed. I love the little twin wrapped packs- they are the perfect size for snacking. Each box contains 5 wrapped twin sets for a total of 10 cookies.

These “cookie” part of these cookies have a nice crunch to them but are not hard, and have a pleasant texture that isn’t too gritty or crumbly. The vanilla flavor is mild and has a slightly processed taste that left a residue in my mouth. The filling is like a thick slab of gritty sweetness. It is not fluffy or smooth, but manages to blend well with the cookies surrounding it.

If you want a decent cookie that will fulfill your sweet tooth craving in a hurry, this cookie is your ticket. Just be sure to have a glass of cold milk nearby.

Pros: twin wrapped for freshness, perfectly sweet

Cons: filling is somewhat gritty and thick

Rating: 3 1/2 stars

    I was actually enjoying a box of these while I looked thru your site!

    My only issue with these cookies is the price. Its hard to afford them while being a college student. But, its worth the splurge.

    These are my favorite cookies of all time. I am a huge fan of the Glutino brand. I don’t think that they are too gritty. They are dense and very sweet, but I a quite a fun.

    But, I am also allergic to dairy and eggs, so it is difficult to even find a half decent cookie. But, these fit the bill!

    No kidding Katie- I wish the price of GF products wasn’t so high. It’s ridiculous!
