Product Review: Yes! To Cookies

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:

  • Zero Sugar
  • Zero Starch
  • Zero Gylcemic Index
  • Zero Digested Carbs
  • Zero Worries

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.

Strawberry-Banana Blitz flavor: Erythritol, Cereal Fiber Psyllium*, Butter, Egg, Whey Protein Isolate, Psyllium Husk, Organic Gum Acacia, Natural Strawberry, Banana and Vanilla flavors, CelluloseGum, 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.

Yes! To Cookies can be purchased on Amazon.com, a location near you or on the Yes! To Cookies website. They are available in mix form or premade.

Have you tried these cookies?

  • I just wanted to leave you a quick comment letting you know that I really enjoy reading your posts and this post has made your stock go up even more with me. While I completely understand that you don't want to give anyone in this small and help-centered community a "bad review" it is nice to hear someone's honest opinion. I think you phrased this in a way that doesn't discourage other people who may be sugar-free from trying them, and you gave your honest opinion. Everyone has different tastes and I glad to know that your palate didn't care for them, but at the same time I know about Yes! To Cookies and can share this brand with families who are both sugar and starch free. Thanks again! Tinsley

  • Tinsley – Thank you so much for your nice comment! :) I pride myself on being honest, so I couldn't have written anything but the truth here.

    I tried these today and was NOT impressed. Very expensive, with very little taste.I would have to say NO to these.
