We were all a bit put out when Starbucks did away with their Valencia
To make up for it, they gave us the KIND bar, which is good, but is not anything exciting. I guess they’re still trying to make up for it, but adding some more gf products.
One of those recent additions is Lucy’s Cookies. A friend of mine, who is a manager at a local Starbucks, brought me some samples to try.
At first bite, I wasn’t sure about the Sugar Cookie. There was something a little different about it. Then I figured it out… oats! You can taste the oats (gluten-free ones, of course), but it takes a moment to figure it out.
The cookies are very crisp and airy, and covered in sugar. After that first cookie, I decided I really like these. They have a unique oatmeal/sugar cookie flavor, that I find endearing. Plus, 4 cookies only have 1.5 grams of fat (and 16 grams of sugar; 25 grams total carbs, but 2 of those are fiber).
I am enjoying the last of the box, all by myself, while Carter and Charlie play outside in the beautiful sunshine and Corice and Sarah are upstairs, supposedly napping.
