I’m not really a baker. I love to cook and I love high-classing eating, but since I don’t have a sweet tooth, I can’t say that I’m in love with baking. Add “gluten-free” into the mix and I no longer know how to successfully make “normal” cookies without burning them and my lack of patience to measure ingredients like a high school science experiment (hm.. I don’t think I even measured then) has ruined my ability to bake some should-be delectable goodies. All that to say, sometimes boxed cookies aren’t all that bad.

Pros: The inside packaging is extremely wise. It is not probably that one is going to open up a box of chocolate chip cookies and eat all 12 cookies in one setting. As a result, the Andean Dreams not only put all the cookies in a foil inside bag, but each cookie is wrapped individually. Awesome!
Cons: The outside packaging for these cookies is a little over-the-top for me with its busy-ness and poor design, but it’s a box and that’s a preference.
Pros: Calling a cookie “all-natural” and vegan might scare some people off. However, these cookies offer a wealth of chocolate chips, a variety of textures, and the well-loved flavor of Chips Ahoy!® except so much better for you!
Cons: None! No bad aftertaste, no reminder that it’s “all-natural” and no fake ingredients!
Pros: These cookies are great! They really do have the same texture as the Chips Ahoy® and that’s saying something! They have a very airy texture to them and could be used with ice cream or crumbled to be a sundae topping as well.
Cons: The older they get the more crumbly they are, so eat fast!
What I Love
Finally, a cookie that tastes like a cookie should! Thank you, Andean Dreams!
What I’d Improve
I would say if you could come out with a bendy version of these, that’d be great! But hey, they’re still great dipped in milk (real, soy, almond, or otherwise). 🙂
Overall Rating: A

1 thought on “Product Reviews: Andean Dream Chocolate Chip Cookies”
This is a great review! I love the layout — very succinct! These cookies look deelish…I haven’t ever come across them here in Canada. I haven’t found a good vegan replacement for my childhood obsession with Chips Ahoy so I’ll need to do some detective work to find these.
