I received some complimentary samples of Yes! To Cookies cookies a couple of months back. I don’t like to “sit on” reviews for this long, but I don’t like to write negative reviews either. I have been thinking about the “right” way to write the review and now believe that I am ready.
Yes! To Cookies were born when a man was trying to create a cookie for his love who suffered from severe insulin dependent diabetes. Traditional cookies with starch & artificial sweeteners caused her blood sugars to rise. After many, many attempts, he came up with the perfect starch-free, sugar-free cookie that didn’t cause a rise in his love’s blood sugar. Some Yes! To Cookies facts from the site:

Cocoa-Licious flavor: Erythritol, Cereal Fiber Psyllium*, Butter, Egg, Whey Protein Isolate, Cocoa Powder, Psyllium Husk, Organic Gum Acacia, Natural Vanilla flavor, Spices, Cellulose HP-SA, Sodium Bicarbonate, Rebaudioside A (as a sweetener) and Salt.

I have to honest here, we did not care for these cookies at all. The strawberry-banana blitz tasted like bubble gum. The cocoa-licious tasted chemicaly. Jon, Lindsey & I all sampled both flavors & we all had the same opinion. I do want to point out that we don’t have to follow a sugar-free diet, so there may not be many options out there available that don’t raise the blood sugar, which is a big concern for diabetics.
Have you tried these cookies?
