Sweet Memories of Cookies

A few readers have asked for more information about Gilbert's Gourmet Goodies and how they actually taste.  "Are they any good?"  Well, let me put it this way.  When we received our sugar cookies and snickerdoodles in the mail, my peanut allergic child and I each tried one sugar cookie.  The cookies were so good, I quickly had a second cookie and my son took his second cookie before he even completed the first cookie.  Then, we each ate two more.  The taste was great and so was the texture.  Not great for "allergen-free" cookies; great for any cookies!  Then, we realized we were getting a little out of control with the cookies and decided to stop before we completely overdid it.  We picked my older child up from school, returned home, and...ate the rest of the cookies.  There had been about 15 bite size cookies in the box.  Completely decadent, I realize.  But they were SO good.  I think the cookies lasted about 3 hours in our house.  Oh yeah, and the cookies are dairy-free, gluten-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, and wheat-free.
