Let’s get the warnings out of the way first. These cookies are not a low calorie food source. Excess consumption may have a laxative effect. Keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times … Seriously, you might be saying “Hey The Glucoholic, how do you have time to do all these reviews when you spend so much time in the restroom?” Not to worry, The Glucoholic is pretty sure at this point that if you stick to the posted serving sizes you should be just fine.
Opening the pack of two (the suggested serving size) there is the distinct aroma of peanut butter. The pleasure of that is quickly checked as you realize that the texture of the cookie is more like a ginger snap baked with oatmeal than the soft, chewy peanut butter cookie your mom used to make. Applying enough bite force to break off a piece does provide you with a good workout, followed by the reward of tasting significant peanut butter flavor. The cookie has adequate sweetness, and is surprisingly filling.
Due to the ingredients the cookie does leave quite a bit of debris on the palate. Between the peanuts and the whole grain and fiber the remnants remind you somewhat of Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies when they are a little too dry. The taste is not unpleasant, but for those of you that are really picky about texture this might be bothersome.
