Crave Right Cookies – Product Review

Crave Right, a small gluten-free, vegan cookie company in the Northeast, sent me some samples of their cookies to try. Their cookies are all gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, nut-free, and corn-free. They do contain sesame (one of the primary ingredients used).

Crave Right bills their cookies as a natural source of protein and fiber, and low glycemic. For example, the chocolate chip cookies have 4 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and just 7 grams of sugar per serving. One serving is two cookies, with just 150 grams. These might just be the healthiest cookies I have ever seen.

The cookies are also grain-free – no flours (not even gluten-free flours) or starches are used in the making of these cookies. The package says “Crave one, eat two,” but I have to say, I wasn’t craving at all after eating one of these cookies – a testament to the low glycemic claim.

The cookies come in three flavors – chocolate chip, sesame, and chocolate chunk.

I love that they are individually wrapped, making them a great option for on-the-go families with food allergies.

I found the cookies to be considerably less sweet than the usual cookie; I would classify then more as protein bars than cookies. They are more of an on-the-go healthy snack than a treat. Those who are not allergic to sesame or other seeds may find these a great option to add to their pantry.

Hi Colette,

I attempted to contact you through your website, but the link does not appear to be working. I hope you see my message here in the comments.

My 2.5 year old son is allergic to dairy. I was shocked to learn that the Affordable Care Act does not cover epinephrine injectors, life-saving medication for people with food allergies. I wrote a petition on asking the US Government to mandate that all insurance plans cover epinephrine injectors. Please take a look and consider sharing this petition with your followers.
