Good Intentions!

About a week ago, I got a surprising e-mail from a nice lady at Bountiful Vegan, the bakery behind the new Intention Cookies. She offered to send me a box of samples to review, and I gratefully accepted (who says no to free cookies, right?). Today that bountiful box arrived at my office stuffed with these lovely goodies:

There's Well-Being (a coconut pineapple cookie), Prosperity (choco-choco chip), Love (chocolate chip orange), and Harmony (lemon snickerdoodle).

Besides the fantastic flavors, these cookies also come with a promise of good mojo. Each cookie is named for the positive characteristic it can bring into your life if you believe. On the inside of the cookie package, there's a corresponding phrase that you're supposed to repeat while eating the cookie. It works with the Law of Attraction — think positive thoughts and positive things will come your way.

Hokey as it might sound, I believe in all that new age airy-fairy stuff. So these cookies were especially fun for me. Since I can't eat four giant cookies in one day without gaining five million pounds (and suffering from major food guilt), I decided to sample the Love Cookie today:

I don't really need more love in my life, but it can't hurt to have more, right? Plus, this humungous cookie is Chocolate Chip Orange, a combo that sounds like a match made in heaven.

The verdict: If this cookie is Love, consider me head over heels! I cut the cookie in half and heated it in the microwave for 10 seconds so the chocolate chips got all melty. A hint of orange flavor (from natural orange oil, not artificial flavors) accented the creamy chocolate bits. And the cookie had that perfect chewy bakery-fresh texture. I enjoyed it with a cold glass of So Delicious Coconut Milk.

Do I feel more love now? Actually, yes since I've found a new love in Intention Cookies! They're made with all-natural, all-vegan ingredients and they cater to my penchant for the Law of Attraction.

Look for more Intention Cookie reviews in the very near future. I'll let ya'll know what I think as I eat each cookie. In the meantime, order your own at the Bountiful Vegan website.

Wow, those cookies are so huge (from a German point of view). I would turn into a cookie monster if I could lay my hands on them.

Great review! I am SO glad to hear you liked the cookies, they definitely look delicious enough. And like you, I too believe in all that "new age airy-fairy stuff" so I would like those hocus pocus filled cookies just fine!

Those cookies have very trancy labels. I bet they did that so that cookies addicts like myself will eat too many!!! Chocolate Chip Orange would be my favorite, no doubt!

Cyn said...

Those cookies look so good! I love that there seem to be more and more vegan cookies around lately, it's so fun to splurge on them. And microwaving the cookie is genius.
