No preservatives!

Posted on Jul 12, 2012

5 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

The majority of aloe vera juice has preservatives (look for potassium sorbate in the ingredients) in them to increase shelf life, so I was pleased to find this one that did not. Just look at the ingredient list - nothing but plain organic aloe vera juice, the way nature intended. The taste is fine, not particularly strong. Note that refrigeration after opening is recommended. I was so used to leaving out my other aloe vera juice brands (so I would remember to add it to my water) that when I left this one out for several warm days, it did go bad. It's the one drawback to not having any preservatives, but I'll gladly make room in my fridge to reduce my ingestion of these artificial ingredients!

Delicious and not too sweet

Posted on Aug 19, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

So far I've found all Andean Dream cookies to be well balanced in terms of sweetness and flavors. The textures are just like a cookie should be, not too hard/dry and not cakey like a lot of gluten free cookies are. Plus the quinoa gives a tiny shot of protein not normally found in cookies. They are great! This cookie is great for those looking for a decent chocolate cookie. I personally have never liked orange and chocolate paired together, but the orange is not a strong flavor in this cookie at all, and works towards making it a tasty one.

Works all day

This deodorant works fairly well and I don't need to reapply until the next day if I missed a shower for whatever reason. I barely smell anything from the deodorant container, and I don't smell any scent at all after applying. If it's supposed to smell like Tea Tree, I don't smell it. Luckily at the end of the day I still smell mostly nothing. I find the Alvera Aloe Herbal roll-on to be slightly more effective, although that one takes longer to dry. Lafe's dries quicker than most roll-ons.

Finding a great gluten free cookie is rare

Posted on Jul 12, 2012

Purchased at iHerb

I've tried various gluten free cookies, and more often than not, I tend to end up disappointed. The texture is often too cake-like, too grainy, or just plain weird. But these cookies are great! They are lighter and more airy than most cookies in general, and are quite crisp to the bite (and therefore more breakable, I think), but once you get munching, the texture is wonderfully even, and the flavor is spot on. There are just the right amount of chocolate chips, making this just as good as any wheat-based chocolate chip cookie. And if you compare the price of other gluten-free products (which tend to gouge you, especially Glutino!) this one is a great deal. The only thing I would change is the sweetness - a little less sugar would've been ideal. Great for sweet-toothed individuals, but not for those who prefer a little less.

Really tasty!

Unlike most gluten free cookies that tend to be like small, dense cakes, these are tender and wonderfully cookie-like. They aren't hard and crunchy, and are not soft or doughy either. They actually break rather easily and many of them were broken when I opened the box. I didn't mind though, because the flavor is so good I happily dumped the crumbs into my mouth. These cookies are made with organic almond flour, so there's a bit of nutrition from the almonds rather than the empty calories of refined white flour. You don't really feel like your eating ground up nuts though. The cookies are very easy to eat and the flavor is tasty! I actually like these over most normal chocolate chip cookies! The sweetness seems just right to me, not cloying or overpowering. I find Pamela's gluten free cookies to be way too sweet, but Amy's seem to strike the right balance. I think I will try the regular shortbread cookies next.

I eat it out of the jar

This stuff is so tasty, I just eat it out of the jar with a spoon for dessert. It's so much healthier than any sugary dessert, and it's filling too. It smells like toasted almonds and tastes fresh.

Crumbly but tasty

Posted on Sep 20, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

These are one of the better gluten free cookies out there. They are tender to the bite, just like shortbread is supposed to be. It reminded me a little of the chinese almond cookies I've eaten in the past, only without the trans fats. It has little pieces of almonds in there as well. Because they are so tender, they tend to arrive in pieces when delivered. I think UPS must have drop-kicked my package before giving it to me. I happily ate the crumbs with a spoon though. Very tasty!

Wholesome and organic

Posted on Oct 31, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

I love the simple, organic ingredients, and that is a huge plus. For this particular product, the peanut butter is very apparent, almost masking the chocolate. I think a little less salt would have been nice and maybe then I could taste the chocolate better. It's still not a bad product, and I don't regret trying it.

WAY too many raisins

Posted on Jan 31, 2012

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

There are so many raisins in this cereal, it's all I can taste! And because they get so hard in cold milk, I end up sitting here chewing like a cow. I paid 8.50 for cereal, not a bag of raisins. I do like the coconut, but I don't detect the vanilla that's supposed to be in there. They should call it coconut raisin crunch.

Too sweet

Posted on Jul 29, 2011

1 person found the following review helpful

I find the majority of Pamela's cookies to be really heavy on the sugar. It almost masks the flavors of anything else in the cookie! The coffee flavor is strong enough to break through the heavy-handed sweetness, however, so coffee lovers won't be disappointed. But if you prefer a milder cookie, then this isn't it.

Don't like it

Posted on Mar 31, 2011

1 person found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

This is a weird one, because it smells really good, but tastes nothing at all the way it smells. The smell is very malty, and I really enjoyed taking deep breaths of the aroma. However the taste is not malty at all. The flavor is mild enough, but I hated the stevia aftertaste. I don't like to sweeten my teas at all, so this was a real turnoff for me. The cinnamon is pretty strong, which I don't mind, but overall the taste of this tea was not to my liking. Also I didn't feel any different after drinking this tea than before it. Perhaps not liking the taste prevented me from relaxing?

If you like Kit Kat, you'll love these

Posted on Jul 13, 2011

Purchased at iHerb

Seriously, I am amazed they managed to make potato flour act like wheat. These wafers are delightfully crispy, and the flavor is chocolaty good. Kit Kat used to be my favorite candy bar, until I discovered my wheat allergy. I think these wafer cookies are even better! Not as candy-bar-sweet as Kit Kat.
