Pamela's Cookie Review: Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chunk

I have to confess something.  I have been meaning to write this review for a long time and I'm only doing it today because I wanted to eat a cookie.  My camera was handy so I thought I'd take a few shots of the cookies before I indulged.  Boy, do I feel industrious today!

I'll be doing reviews of Pamela's Ginger Cookies and Peanut Butter Cookies in due course - probably on a day when I feel like eating a ginger cookie or a peanut butter cookie.

I really like the Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookies that Pamela's Products makes.  They are soft, not crunchy - I like that.  The chocolate chunks are big and of a nice-quality chocolate for a packaged cookie.  In fact, I would say that these are better than most packaged cookies you can buy in the store, wheat or no wheat.  The only criticism I have is that they are a little inconsistent from package to package.  The most recent box of cookies I bought was a little drier than usual.  Usually they come out of the bag almost moist.
Pamela's cookies are all wheat-free and gluten-free.  Many of them, including the Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chunk Cookies, are also dairy-free, although the ingredients list does specify that they may contain traces of milk.  They are not vegan as they contain eggs.

As for value, I think that they are priced appropriately for high-quality gluten-free packaged goods.  There are nine cookies per box.

Great review! You got it dead on, that is exactly how they are packaged, I wasn't sure if I was the only one that thought that.

These cookies got me into deep weight gain trouble. When I was first diagnosed with Celiac in early '06, I bought these cookies and ate them in one or two sittings. They are delicious. Your description is indeed accurate - soft (which I usually don't like), for sure. But the softness is made up for by the rich chocolately flavor of the cookies. I found them to be even more enjoyable after sitting in the frig overnight.
