Udi’s Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies
As I was walking through the grocery store tonight to pick up some milk, I passed by the Udi’s display and saw a new product…Chocolate Chip Cookies! I was so excited that I bought a pack and I obviously couldn’t wait until I got home to try one. I got in my car and opened the pack expecting a nice soft chewy chocolate chip cookie.
Unfortunately these cookies are not soft like Udi’s awesome gluten free bread. I was a bit disappointed with my purchase, but decided to try softening the cookies by warming them up in the microwave. After dinner I put three in the microwave for about 30 seconds and they softened up a bit. Tomorrow I will try dipping them into milk, but they are a tough cookie….don’t chip your tooth if you try them! They have a great flavor, but they are a bit too crunchy for my liking. Try them out for $5.99.
UPDATE (01/16/11): So over the past couple of weeks I have purchased a few more packages of these cookies from different grocery stores. None have been as tough as the first pack that I purchased, but they are not as soft a cookie as I would like. The molasses in them does give the cookie a nice toffee flavor; I just wish they were softer cookies.
UPDATE (03/10/11): After two comments were received that these cookies are actually soft, I went and bought another package from my local Kroger. This is about my fifth package, however I haven’t purchased any in the past month because I had given up on these cookies. I think that Udi’s and Kroger must have resolved their issue of selling tough cookies because these were soft! I noticed that this package also had a sell-by date sticker, whereas the first four packages I purchased had a best freeze-by date printed on the side of the package. Now the packages also have a lot number. Kroger chain stores are apparently the only place that these Udi cookies may be purchased.
