Byron Bay White Choc Chunk & Macadamia Nut Cookies

The following product review is for Byron Bay White Choc Chunk & Macadamia Nut Cookies. We have also reviewed other biscuits which you can see here.

Australian based Byron Bay Cookie Company signed a deal in 2007 with one of the UK’s most prestigious bakeries to produce their cookies in the United Kingdom.   Their move to being baked in the UK meant that they could be certified by The Vegetarian Society as they now contained only free range eggs. The gluten free range has also been approved by Coeliac UK and displays the Cross Grain Symbol.

We discovered the Byron Bay Cookie Company when we visited their stand at The Allergy Show in Liverpool.

The Verdict

Mmmmm… Where to start?  Opening the packet of these biscuits was a sensory delight, firstly you are hit with aromas of creamy white chocolate and faint toasted nuttiness of  macadamias.  Biting into them for the first time is an unusual experience as the biscuits are both hard and soft at the same time, the best way to describe it, is to liken it to biting into Edinburgh Rock.  The texture is powdery like shortbread and extremely crumbly and the cookies just melt in your mouth.  The flavour of the toasted macadamias blend wonderfully with the white chocolate chunks so that the cookies aren’t too sweet.

The cookies are quite messy to eat and we were left with lots of crumbs but this can be forgiven as the cookies are sooooo good.   The cookies were extremely moreish, and I think that we all agreed that they were the nicest biscuits we have ever eaten.

Byron Bay White Chocolate Chunk & Macadamia Nut Cookies are truly delicious, an absolute taste sensation.  They are the perfect bite sized treats to indulge yourself with.

Gluten Free Masterpiece.  Gluten Free Perfection in a Packet!
