Gluten Free Cookies: Vanilla Sandwich Creme KinniTOOS Nutrition Facts and Ingredients
Nutrition Facts and Ingredients
The slogan on the box for Kinnikinnick’s KinniToos Vanilla Sandwich Crème is, “Gluten Free never tasted so good!” and boy are they right! Kinnikinnick sent us these addictively delicious cookies to try. I’m not going to lie, I opened the package to taste them and after my initial elation as to how scrumptious the cookie was, devoured the first seven cookies in the package without blinking an eye.

The cookie itself is lightly lemony with a bit of a shortbread taste as well. That combined with the creamy vanilla frosting center is a match made in some sort of Gluten Free heaven. I opened them up, which I might add, I could do without breaking the cookie itself, and ate each half at a time, saving the half with the crème on it for last of course. They are crisp cookies without being dry and moist without being soggy. They exist in the very center where we all fantasize a cookie’s texture to be. The taste brings back a childhood memories of enjoying cookies with milk at my grandmother’s house. Well, since I can’t have milk anymore I use Hemp milk, so I tried that, and it was delicious as well. Score! I want to add though that they don’t have preservatives, which is actually a great thing. Only downside to that is once you open the package they need to be stored in a zip lock bag. I wouldn’t worry too much about that though because once they’re open, it’s tough not to eat them.

These cookies have a lot going for them. They are dairy free and nut free which is awesome. Comparing them to their glutinous equivalents, they hold up pretty well too. Take Oreos for example, which have 53 calories and 3.3g of fat per cookie. These Kinnitoos have 50 calories with 1.5g fat per cookie. Not too bad for a gluten free cookie.
