During a recent trip to indulge my smoothie addiction (more on that later), I finally splurged and got The Complete Cookie. I’ll admit, everything in the smoothie store looks a little strange to me. Products all with bold words on the side, within lighting bolt clouds or bright boxes, screaming to add boosters I’m apparently missing with my average diet. But something about Lenny & Larry seemed more approachable (I say this in a voice that a woman uses who is describing two nice gentlemen at a bar). I reviewed the ingredients roughly 30 times or so, boasting “no preservatives, no dairy products, no animal products, 16 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, 0 grams of trans fat, is kosher and all natural”. No way.
While I didn’t get to try more than one flavor, the Snickerdoodle was a good sell convincing me to dive deeper into the line-up of flavors. Next up, Lemon Poppy or Peanut Butter. For you non-adventurous cookie eaters, there’s also chocolate chip, double chocolate, oatmeal raisin and white chocolate macadamia. But the Snickerdoodle was surprisingly soft and fluffy. It had the full flavor of a bakery cookie without a weird aftertaste or tongue fur that can accompany health-food cookies. Close your eyes and put it next to a cookie from your neighborhood cookie, and I’d guess you would choose this one for the win. Yes, really.
