CLOSED: Dr. Lucy's Gluten-Free Cookies Review/Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed, congrats to Danielle, comment number 32! Winner chosen via random number generator on random.org.

Recently, a friend of mine was diagnosed with Celiac disease and as a result has to keep to a Gluten-free diet. This may sound challenging to some and like kind of a downer to others, but not with great companies like Dr. Lucy's around!






I became interested in Dr. Lucy's after being at the house of this friend of mine, and hearing all the other benefits of a gluten-free diet, such as the fact that you will have more energy if you eat gluten-free since it is so much healthier for you! I received 3 packages of Dr. Lucy's cookies to review, and let me tell you, they are SO GOOD!


Here's the basics of how Dr. Lucy's came to be:
“When Dr. Lucy Gibney discovered her child had severe food allergies, she got down to some serious medical research—in the kitchen. Today, Lucy's gluten-free, allergy-friendly are a delicious alternative for those with and without special dietary considerations. 

Lucy’s cookies are made in a dedicated bakery where we use the best available testing methods to exclude specific allergens: gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts.

As an M.D. and mother of a child with severe food allergies, Dr. Lucy Gibney brings understanding and first-hand knowledge of the importance of strict quality standards and how to achieve them. With clear ingredient and allergen information on our packaging and careful selection of all raw materials, she employs the very best methods for quality control.”

That's right, Dr. Lucy's cookies are super allergy-safe as well! That's great for our family, because Chip had really severe peanut and egg allergies growing up and still doesn't do well around peanuts. The cookies I received to review came in Ginger Snap, Maple Bliss, and Chocolate. Wait until you hear what I have to say about each of them!

I tried the Maple Bliss first, and was pleasantly surprised. We have tons of maple-syrup farms in Maine, but despite that fact I don't think I'd ever had a Maple cookie, so this was a first for me! It was almost like a sugar cookie, but the hint of maple was really delightful, and you could totally taste it. I really enjoyed dipping the Maple Bliss cookies in a nice, hot cup of tea, and we ran out of these first!

The Ginger Snap cookies were definitely my favorite of the three. Angie, age 5, said "thumbs up!" I think these were her favorite as well. Let me say, the ginger taste in these cookies is so fresh - it's unlike anything you've ever had before. I literally had to limit myself on eating these ones, they were so good!

Finally, I'd saved the Chocolate cookies for last. These cookies were so rich and should really be eaten with a glass of milk - they were that chocolately! It's amazing to me that even though all three of these cookies tasted better than regular cookies, they all have only 40 calories each! With a serving size of three cookies, these make a great 100-calorie snack!

If you're worried that gluten-free cookies will somehow taste different than normal cookies, you can stop that right now. These cookies were awesome, and I didn't even notice that they were made with different ingredients than usual. In fact, I'd much rather have these cookies than everyday cookies since all the flavors were so much richer and I felt good just knowing they were better for me!

On a side note, I have to add that the packaging of these cookies is super cute! Each box was a different color and all had a tiny, floral pattern which I loved! Even the wrapping on these cookies is delightful, as if the cookies inside weren't good enough already!

BUY IT: Please head over to Dr. Lucy's site and purchase some of these awesome cookies! They're great to serve at any holiday party, especially the Ginger Snaps, and in today's modern dietary world they're a safe choice as well. I also know that any college kid would love to receive a couple boxes of Dr. Lucy's in a care package! And of course, Santa wouldn't mind finding a couple Chocolate cookies under the tree ;)

WIN IT: Dr. Lucy's has been very generous in donating the same three boxes of cookies that I received to one lucky winner of a giveaway! The winner will receive one box each of Chocolate, Maple Bliss, and Ginger Snap cookies. The mandatory entry is to visit Dr. Lucy's and tell me what type of cookies you think you'd enjoy the most! This giveaway will close December 13th at noon, US entries only.
