Curiously Scrumptious Cookies for People with Diabetes and Celiac Disease

Apr 23, 2007

Ginger Cranberry

Curious Cookie makes some really good cookies. I had intended to eat one while writing this review, but curiously, there were none left. The staff had eaten the entire sample pack.

The cookies are concocted with pure, natural ingredients like Madagascar vanilla and Bavarian chocolate, but without trans fats, chemicals, genetically modified ingredients, or preservatives. In short, they have lots of good stuff and none of the bad stuff, a rare combination indeed.

As a thoughtful gesture for those of us who tend toward gluttony, Curious Cookies are individually wrapped, thereby encouraging us to eat one cookie at a time rather than an entire box at one sitting.

There are two special cookie lines, one for people with diabetes and one for people with celiac disease.

Suitable for people with diabetes are the sugar-free, low carbohydrate cookies made with Splenda, which have only 11 to 13 grams of carb per cookie. They come in flavors of Coconut, Ginger, Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Macadamia Nut and Mocha Chocolate. Calories counts range from about 120 to 130 per cookie; (They’re not fat-free, that’s for sure.)

For people with celiac disease, the gluten-free line is also lactose- and casein-free. These cookies are available in Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Lemon Chocolate Chip, Ginger Cranberry and Chocolate Chip, and have about 21 to 22 grams of carb per cookie. Calorie counts range from about 140 to 170.

You can buy the cookies online at www.curiouscookie.com or 877-YUMMY-2-U.
