Dr. Lucy's Cookies Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
Does someone you love have an allergy to wheat/gluten (Celiac Diseae)? How about an allergy to milk, eggs, peanuts or tree nuts? Or maybe you're vegan? Well, I know people with all of the above mentioned allergies. My husband is allergic to tree nuts, and it's very difficult to find him treats like cookies that don't say "may contain traces of..." on the package. Luckily he's not as allergic as some people I know, and he takes his chances a lot of times on those cookies, but every once in a while he's not lucky and has a reaction. There was also a period of time shortly after we were married when he was having terrible stomach trouble and doctors thought he might have Celiac Disease. It turns out he doesn't have it, but he went on a gluten-free diet for a while and it did actually make him feel a lot better. But those gluten-free cookies from the store don't always taste good...which is why I'm so happy to bring you a review of Dr. Lucy's Cookies!

Dr. Lucy's Cookies are gluten free and made without milk, eggs, peanuts or tree nuts. They have a dedicated bakery where they use the very best allergen control methods to help safeguard you and your family. They also use the best available testing methods to exclude these allergens. But this doesn't mean that the cookies are tasteless. Just the opposite! Every crispy, crunchy, delicious Dr. Lucy’s cookie has a light airy texture people love. And, of course, Dr. Lucy's Cookies are Kosher Pareve certified by Star K!!

My Take
Dr. Lucy's sent me samples of each of their cookie flavors: Sugar Cookie, Cinnamon Thin, Chocolate Chip, and Oatmeal Cookie. Of course, I tried the Chocolate Chip Cookies first, and I was not disappointed. They were absolutely delicious!! I do prefer a soft-baked cookie, but I didn't mind that these were the hard-baked kind. And apparently neither did my family since, after a few days, the box was empty... Hmmm... So we moved onto the Oatmeal Cookies. The consensus is that they're good, but not as good as the chocolate chip ones. (Well, what do you expect from my chocoholic family? lol) My hubby also says that he would prefer them with raisins. The next up were the Sugar Cookies. They taste good, but are a bit too sweet for my family. We tend not to have too much sugar in our diets, so they might be ok for someone who is used to it. Then again, they are SUGAR cookies. :-) Lastly, we tried the Cinnamon Thins. These are also a bit too sweet for us, but they were good nonetheless.

Pros:
  • Dr. Lucy's Cookies are are gluten-, milk-, egg-, peanut- and tree nut-free!
  • The cookies are also vegan and certified kosher.
  • This is a somewhat guilt-free snack at only 130 calories per serving (3 cookies).
  • The cookies are delicious, so people with food allergies won't feel like they're missing out.
  • There are four great varieties to choose from.
  • You can buy boxes of cookies for the home and/or "grab & go bags" for easy portability.
  • If you buy a Dr. Lucy's Cookies Variety Case from Amazon, the cookies are quite inexpensive.
  • You can also buy Dr. Lucy's Cookies at a store near you.
Cons:Cost: You can buy a Dr. Lucy's Cookies Variety Case from Amazon (that's eight boxes; two of each flavor) for $16.08! ($$)

Overall: We give Dr. Lucy's Cookies a 9/10!

One of you very lucky readers will win a gift basket of four boxes (one of each flavor) and eight grab & go bags (two of each flavor) of Dr. Lucy's Cookies!

The flavor I would most want to try is chocolate chip oatmeal! I love chocolate AND oatmeal, so how could I go wrong?

My whole family has a LOT of allergies, including food, but my dad is the only one with a nut allergy. So I would be excited to share these with him. :)

GFC follower as PinchingAbe and I would love to try the oatmeal ones. I have a wheat allergy and sometimes react to oats, so I tend to avoid them. I do wish they were soft, though, but if they taste good, they'll soften up in some milk!
