Pamela’s Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies

PhotoThis cookie holds a special place in the heart as well as the mouth. For those of us who discovered our gluten intolerance back in the 1990’s this was the first “safe” cookie we sampled. What a relief it was to know a delicious cookie was out there in stores. Even though today there are gluten-free cookies everywhere, Pamela’s remains a favorite.

MAKER: Pamela’s Products

TASTE: Rich. Not too buttery. Excellent chocolate quotient. Satisfying. This cookie is a staple within the Federation. Yum!

TEXTURE: Highly dependant on atmospheric conditions; i.e., if you leave them out they get hard—not stone-hard, just nearly crunchy. Out of the box they’re surprisingly variable in texture, which leads me to believe that their packaging process is a bit random. For example, I’ve had a lovely Pamela’s cookie (mind you, they’re all lovely—all cookies are lovely) that has been nearly bendable and pliant and I’ve had other just-out-of-the-box cookies that are nearly crunchy, like they’ve been setting out.

SIZE: This is one UFOey cookie. Nice aerodynamics at about 3″ diameter, maximum height 5/8″ tapering down to 1/4″.

SWEETS & FATS: Pretty sweet tasting. 0% honey content. High in calories and saturated fat. For optimum cookie enjoyment don’t read its nutrition facts.

PRICE: Not cheap.

NOTES: Cookies, cookies, cookies!
