CAVEMAN COOKIES PRODUCT REVIEW
Raisin & Walnut
Ingredients: organic honey, almond flour, walnuts, raisins, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon
We all liked the Raisin & Walnut cookies. They had a gooey sweet taste to them which was incredibly hard to resist. The flavour was familiar...took us back to the old days pre-Paleo when we could easily have some raisin cookies. The difference this time is that we could eat these babies without feeling sick or guilty afterwards.
Ingredients: maple syrup, organic honey, almond meal, pecan meal, dried cranberries (cranberries, apple juice concentrate, sunflower oil), pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie spice
The kids' favourite. Pumpkin-flavoured cookies. It did not come as a surprise since they all love the taste of pumpkin. Personally, I found this flavour too sweet for my liking but as I have said before, I tend to prefer less sweet treats. Being pumpkin fanatics, the kids quickly took note of the pumpkin flavour and their taste buds rejoiced with each bite.
Ingredients: organic honey, almond meal, raw cacao powder, cashews, chia seeds, pure vanilla extract, cinnamon, chili powder
The mayan cookie was one of my favourites. The chili flavour gave it a certain kick which complemented the cookie's other flavours. Chocolate and chili flavour combined with the super food chia? Yummm. They were not too sweet either...exactly how I like it! The kids liked this flavour as well but they were not excited about it as much as they were about New World. They were still basking in their pumpkin high at this point.
Ingredients: organic honey, hazelnut flour, almond flour, carob
Ronan loved these cookies, and kept saying he's had them before. I do not recall he's ever had carob before but he insisted there was something familiar about them. Kiarra and I did not really this flavour. Actually, in all honesty, I was not sure what I thought of it. Having just tasted the Mayan cookie, however, it paled in comparison. I may have to give this flavour a go again on its own to be able to assess what I really thought of it.
Ingredients: almond flour, organic honey, unsulfured coconut, macadamia nuts, ginger
"Mmmmm...this tastes like coconut and macaroni!!!"...hahahaha, Kiarra exclaimed as soon as she had a bite. I had to remind her it was macadamia, not macaroni, but she was thrilled at the flavour nonetheless. I love coconut and macadamia so of course it only made sense this flavour was a favourite of mine. Ronan is not much of a coconut fan but he did not mind these cookies. I'd have to say hands-down, these were my favourite. Coconut and macadamia nut lovers would likely find these cookies delicious as well.
Ingredients: organic honey, almond meal, brazil nut meal, chopped almonds, dried cherries (cherries, sunflower oil), nutmeg, cayenne pepper
Admittedly, I was not a fan of this flavour and neither were the kids. Randy, on the other hand, found this flavour to be the best. He's the odd man out, haha. It was, however, also the first flavour he got to taste (he snuck in at the end of our tasting). I was thinking perhaps if I tasted this flavour first I may have thought the same. The kids quite happily gave him these cookies and Randy gladly took them.
Overall, we can honestly state without a doubt that Caveman Cookies were out of this world delicious. It comes as a relief that we are able to find and purchase such delectable cookies that are Paleo-friendly.
