Jovial Gluten Free Cookies - They Will Make You Happy!

 Its always a real treat when someone asks me to try their new gluten free product.   This time, a friend sent over 3 boxes of Jovial gluten free cookies.  Fig filled, chocolate cream and vanilla cream.  I first tried the vanilla cream.  It has a crunchy chocolate outside and smooth vanilla cream filling.  The filling most reminds of a delicious frosting, like the kind you'd find on a Publix cake - only this is much lighter somehow, but, not less tasty. 

As a self diagnosed chocoholic (with all who know me in unanimous agreement), I would have thought the chocolate creme filled would have won my heart and would have been a sure win first place for me.  Surprisingly, my heart and stomach are in utter LOVE with the fig filled cookies.  They have a soft cookie outside and oh so fabulous fig filling - the filling reminded me of my fig craze, where all I'd want to do is saute figs in olive oil until they were perfectly caramelized. 

This filling is that good and the soft outside brought me memories of a fig newton, but, I never fell in love with fig newtons, these are just better.  Its a light snack - I've hid them in my office drawer, and make sure to close the door before I eat them, who wants to share? :). The chocolate cream filled are just like their vanilla cream filled counterparts - harder crunchy outside with light frosting like cream inside. 

The good news is these cookies are easily accessible on - the link and picture of the cookies can be found below.  Let me know what you think, which is your favorite??

  1. Hands down the fig filled are best! (And I'm not just saying that since I can't have the vanilla and now since the chocolate was reformulated can't have them either!) I love that they come individually wrapped in pairs so you can just take a pack of two along with you. [Note: if you've got more than one flavor at home, the individual packs aren't labeled so don't mix them up!]
