Health Valley Cookie Cremes

It’s been a while since I covered any Oreo-related products, so today I’ll be discussing another less unhealthy alternative to Oreos, Health Valley Cookie Cremes.

I was surprised at how much the Cookie Cremes taste like Whole Foods’ faux-reos. They have the same extra creamy center that’s not-quite-Oreo-but-still-mighty-tasty. Where the Cookie Cremes have the advantage, though, is in the cookie: it’s quite good… nice and crunchy, but not overly dry. They are more expensive per-cookie than their Whole Foods’ counterparts, though, and the Health Valley package contains less so you’ll go through a package much more quickly.

All-in-all, I’m quite pleased with the Cookie Cremes as a less deadly alternative to Oreos (no hydrogenated oils, lower saturated fat, etc.).

....jk goes off topic....can I just say how jealous I am that you have a Whole Foods store? I shopped there in Santa Fe last month and didn't want to leave. (the store...I did want to leave NM eventually but wanted to bring the store with me.)

Actually, there isn't one near me -- the closest is about 45 minutes away. Now that we have a Wegman's five minutes from my work, though, that pretty much satiates my health food/organic needs.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
