I am going to ask Liz Holtz to marry me…and I may also ask her husband Dan to marry me too. Why this sudden confession of the heart? Because one of them is responsible for this:
Liz Lovely Gluten Free Chocolate Fudge Cookie (aka Da’ BOMB!!!!)
Liz Lovely is one of those companies that you just love.
They care about the environment:
And they care about their product:
“We bake gourmet cookies with organic & fair trade ingredients from our 100% vegan cookie bakery in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Unlike most natural food companies these days, we bake everything in our own bakery and ship it directly to people and stores all over the country.” – Liz Lovely
And they care about Celiacs!!!
When I found out they had a gluten free line last week, I immediately joined their fan club. (I’m not joking, they actually have a fan club!) And I may or may not have gushed in my sign up email about how much I used to love their glutenous cookies and that I was crazy about the fact that they use Fair Trade Chocolate. And that I was dying to try their new gluten free cookies…and that I love them. Yeah, it was a pretty long sign up email. I’m sure it got a few laughs around the office.
So when they emailed me and asked if I wanted to review some of their line for the blog…well, I blushed I was so honored. I was more than familiar with their company from my time working at the food co-op. Back in my glutenous days I was a big fan of their cowgirl cookie. All of their cookies are 100% Vegan, and even though I’m not, I can’t taste a difference!
I was sent three flavors to try: Chocolate Fudge, German Chocolate Cake, and Ginger Molasses. All Gluten Free!!!
Then German Chocolate is for you!!
Big flakes of real coconut, hunks of walnut, and the fudgiest (is that a word?) cake you’ve ever tasted!!!
Love Crystallized Ginger?
Then the Ginger Molasses Cookie is for you! This cookie was instant Christmas for me! The blend of gingerbread spices paired with the bits of crystallized ginger were to die for!! All I needed was a chilly night and cup of Nutcracker Sweet tea!
Love Chocolate? (Like I even need to ask!!)
Then the Chocolate Fudge Cookies are for you!! These cookies are SOOOOO GOOD!!! So remember the last time you were making brownies and you snuck a swipe at the bowl and felt a wee bit naughty? Well, these cookies are exactly like that, except you don’t feel naughty because this is the civilized equivalent of sneaking brownie batter. PLUS they use Fair Trade chocolate…so you really shouldn’t feel naughty at all!!
Once again I wish I were rich, and I would send each and everyone of you gluten free gals and guys a box of these cookies. There are so many times that we have to skip the cookies at the party, meeting, or random gathering that we all deserve to have an uninterrupted afternoon with these cookies.
Unfortunately I’m not rich BUT there is some good news!!
Liz Lovely is currently celebrating their ONE YEAR Anniversary of gluten free goodness and they’re offering 20% off everything gluten free!! They have a full line of Gluten Free Cookies and more flavors than featured on this post. So you too my dear readers can fall in love with Liz Lovely!
And become a Cookie Monster!!!
So on Twitter today I realized that pretty much everyone in the bloggity world is searching for sponsorship to Foodbuzz Fest!?! Hopefully this will be one situation where being gluten free works in my favor!! I’m not even sure if companies like Enjoy Life, Nature’s Path, Amazing Grass, or LARABAR do sponsorships, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that someone out there thinks I would be a great representative of their company! :)…wait, should I take the Cookie Monster picture down?
