Divvies - Cookies & Chocolate Bars

Lori Sandler is a cookie-making genius! She is the baker behind Divvie's, a bakery inspired by her son's life-threatening food allergies. She set out to create treats without dairy, eggs, or nuts that would be good enough to share and I think she has succeeded. Divvie's sent me a sampler package of two of their cookies and one of their chocolate bars to try. I couldn't wait to dig in!

Being a bit of a chocolate fanatic, I had to open the Choco-lot brownie cookies first. But, before I did, I admired the cute packaging, which is something they are known for. Their logo has cookies dotting the i's and the packaging looks great. But, do the cookies taste as good as they look? Oh my gosh, yes. The choco-lot brownie cookie is one of the best vegan chocolate cookies I've ever had. It is incredibly soft and moist and loaded with chocolate chips. It is melt in your mouth goodness with sugar on top, literally.

Then, I got to the sugar cookies. These cookies are harder than the choco-lot cookies, but they are still somewhat soft.  They also had sugar on the top of them. They were very good, but I would have preferred them to be a bit softer.

Lastly, I tried the chocolate bar.  I really wasn't that excited about it as I haven't been into peppermint in a while, but wow! First of all, again, love the packaging. It is called, "Bingo! Benjamint Crunch." When I opened it up, I noticed that the bar was divided so that 3/4 said "mine" and 1/4 said "yours." That is so cute.  The chocolate itself was delicious dark chocolate with little peppermint bits -- tasted like a peppermint patty and I loved it.

Divvie's has done an excellent job creating cookies, chocolate, and many other items without dairy, eggs, or nuts. I know they target their marketing towards kids, but this stuff is good enough for adults too. Trust me, you'll never know anything is missing!
