Being pregnant can be a struggle when it comes to looking for a sweet treat without all of the yucky ingredients. Thankfully, with non-GMO ingredients and organic options, Back to Nature is serving up sweetness even I don’t have to feel guilty about eating this pregnancy. Did somebody say chocolate chunk cookie? Yes, please.
I am not normally a sweet tooth person; however, this pregnancy has been all about the donuts, the cookies… the more carbs, the better. But honestly, I am really trying hard to keep my ingredients to a good level of “wholesome” and still make sure that what I am putting into my body is healthy for the baby.
I know, I know. You’re thinking that cookies aren’t healthy — they may not be, but Back to Nature’s Chocolate Chunk Cookies are made free from any genetically modified ingredients, which means no GMOs. There is also no high fructose corn syrup, and the biggest win is that their whole ingredient list is pronounceable! Containing things like whole wheat flour and semi-sweet chocolate chunks, I feel like I am in good hands when snacking on these pleasures. Knowing that there are not ingredients like soybean oil and hydrogenated oils makes it an even better choice over well-known, not-so-healthy brands that use to be at the top of my grocery list.
What I Liked
We actually broke into our first box after the weekend of the stomach flu a few weeks ago. Dusty craves carbs when he was sick and I was on my first full day of eating real meals again. We needed a treat to get our spirits back in order, and this was on the top of my list. My first thoughts where “natural cookie? hmmm..” but they did not disappoint my sweet tooth. It was a good chocolate chip cookie with good ingredients.
What I Didn’t Like
I am going to have to pause and say that even though the taste was great, I am not a hard, crunchy cookie gal. I enjoy a snap here and there, but those soft middles are my savory desire. The texture of the cookie overall was great, and Dusty, who enjoys harder cookies, really loved them. However, this was my only minor issue.
At around $4, depending on the store and where you are located, Back to Nature’s Chocolate Chunk Cookies are a great item to add to your grocery list. Back to Nature actually makes a whole line of great products in addition to cookies. I personally loved the crackers we were able to have as well, and I have been eyeing up their nuts and trail mix too. They were easy to find out our local grocery store, Fresh Thyme, and can be found at almost all major retailers, including Kroger, Ahold Delhaize stores, Publix, Whole Foods Market, and Sprouts Farmers Market.
