To Health and Wealth!

Last month, I received an awesome sample box of Intention Cookies from the folks at Bountiful Vegan. I've been reviewing each cookie as I try them out. Today I sampled the Prosperity Cookie:

These gigantic all-natural, all-vegan cookies are laced with love and good intentions. Each flavor is said to bring a different positive aspect into your life, and as the name implies, this Choco-Choco Chip Prosperity Cookie is supposed to bring about a little extra moola.

I can always use extra cash, so I ate half of this fudgey cookie with a glass of soymilk and repeated the phrase "I appreciate my increasingly growing wealth" over and over. Each cookie comes with a magic phrase to recite while you nosh. We'll see if it works!

As for taste, this cookie reminded me of a cross between a brownie and a milk chocolate Easter bunny! It had a super fudgey taste, but there was something about it that seemed reminescent of milk chocolate ... and that's a great thing for a vegan that misses decent candy bars. There were a few small nut pieces in the cookie, and I would have liked to see a few more of those.

Overall verdict — Delicious, comforting, and indulgent. I feel a bit wealthier already!

Order your own Intention Cookies (or enter their variety pack giveway) on the Bountiful Vegan website. These would make awesome gifts!

Wednesday morning update: Entry is now closed for the MixMyGranola contest. I've just used a Random Number Generator to select a winner (ha, I know who it is, but I'm keeping it a secret!!!), and I'll announce when I post tonight. Stay tuned!

A cross between a brownie and a milk chocolate easter bunny!?!?! YES PLEASE!

Those just might be the most magical words I have ever heard!

I love all kinds of chocolate but my favorite (pre vegan) was milk chocolate, so this would be an amazing treat.

I love the sweet and happy ideas of these cookies. It would bring a smile to my tastebuds and to me!

Those cookies look delish! I have actually been curious about these cookies for the longest time but since no ones sells them around here I wasnt sure if it would be worth ordering them on the internet! Im glad to hear that they are super tasty and I think ill place an order. Thanks :)

I could use a cookie like that. I wonder if eating one everyday would make my loan debt go away?
