The Verdict

I am sat munching my way through my second Lemon Zest Cookie accompanied by a cup of coffee as I write this review.

There were 9 of the Gluten Free Lemon Zest Cookies in the pack.

One of the first things that struck me about these cookies when I bit into them was their premium quality.  The aroma of lemon was apparent as soon as I removed the clear wrapper, the smell was scrumptious.  The texture was crunchy, they reminded me a bit of McVities Ginger Nuts biscuits.  The cookies are light and crumbly and once you bite into them you are met with a really fresh lemony flavour, they aren’t overpowering as they are only lightly infused with lemon.  Every so often you come across of piece of lemon peel which gives you a chewy hit of zingy lemon zest. You are left with a very pleasant lemony after-taste.

You would never know that these cookies are free-from products.  They are definitely not lacking in any way whatsoever. It just goes to show that having an allergy doesn’t mean that you always need to miss out on tasty food.

My youngest daughter didn’t like these but this is understandable given that she doesn’t like lemons, so I have discounted her score in the overall rating.  The rest of the family loved them.  They are extremely moreish and I will be buying them again.

A perfect accompaniment for a cuppa!
