Adam misses Oreos®. Most gluten-free eaters would probably agree. Kinnikinnick sent me their gluten-free version of these chocolate creme sandwiches. Here are our thoughts. 🙂
Allergy-Related Information: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Nut-Free
Pros: I love how these cookies look! They look just like the real …er… traditional chocolate creme-filled cookie! I love companies that supply allergy-free eaters with traditional-looking sweets!
Cons: No cons here!
Pros: I love that you can taste the chocolate in these cookies! You can taste the real cocoa in every bite, and it’s impressive. They taste real!
Cons: I was disappointed with the creme filling in these cookies. It was more of an icing than a creme. Bummer. I also felt that the cocoa overshadowed the creme. They almost need to be “double-stuffed” in order to enjoy the creme center.
Pros: I like the texture of these cookies because they’re authentic to the gluten-filled/traditional cookies. I also like them because they would most-definitely work for a crumbled pie crust or dessert “salad”.
Cons: Adam found them too crumbly to his liking. That’s such a big thing to gluten-free eaters, so to have them a little dryer is great for recipes and not-so-great for snacking.
What I Love
I really love that Kinnikinnick has focused on alot of the aspects of traditional Oreos that most-remembered and missed for gluten-free eaters. They look right, they have the right consistency, and they’re a great treat.
What I’d Improve
I’d definitely improve the creme-to-cookie ratio as well as work on the cookie flavoring so that the cocoa powder is less overwhelming (They’re almost bitter).
Overall Rating: B-
