When I arrived home from work yesterday afternoon, a big package from Enjoy Life was sitting on my doorstep. I cannot express to you how much I enjoy receiving even a letter in the mail (that’s letter, not bill). Getting a package is kind of a big D, and makes me giddy with excitement!
I opened it immediately and saw possibly the most glorious sight of life.
Oh hello FREE COOKIES!!!!
Four different kinds of Enjoy Life cookies. Chocolate Chip, Double Chocolate, Sugar Shortbread, and Vanilla Honey Graham. Oh sweet baby cheeses, I thought I was dreaming.
I am a self-proclaimed cookie connoisseur. I have no shame in admitting that cookies are my ultimate weakness.
In fact, when I was deciding on a name for my blog, Lindsey Loves Cookies (or LL Cookies for short, haha) was one of the names I was tossing around in my head. Because I do LOVE cookies.
But I think Happy or Hungry is a better fit. I love many different kinds of food and I don’t want to discriminate. And I think it describes me better.
Anywhoozle, I have been known to be kind of a cookie monster, so what do you think happened when I opened the box?
I busted into all of the boxes and tried all four kinds of the cookies immediately. Honestly, they were all delicious.
Let me just say that Enjoy Life is not paying me to write this. They asked me if I would be interested in trying out their cookies, and I basically said “Free cookies?! Um, YUP.” Only more professionally.
Let me also just say that I don’t typically like packaged cookies. Well, I’ll never say no to President’s Choice Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookies, but that’s about it. Soft, chewy homemade-tasting cookies are my very fave.
Since these cookies are all called “Crunchy Cookies”, I knew soft and chewy wasn’t the texture I should be expecting. But they were good, and surprisingly the inside of them was a little chewy. Not in a homemade sort of way, but almost in a toffee sort of way. I was a big fan.
Normally my fave cookies are always chocolate chip, but I was favouring the Sugar Shortbread and Vanilla Honey Graham flavours of these – loved them!
As with all of Enjoy Life products, these babies are gluten-free, and free of the most common allergens like nuts and dairy. If you have food allergies, or even if you don’t, check these out! They’re available at Superstore and Loblaws.
Well, I am off to the vet. Please say a prayer for this saucy little minx for me!
Winnie is feeling under the weather so I am taking her in to get checked out. She is the best little kitty in all the land, so fingers crossed that all is well. She may be almost 16, but she is still spry and I know she has a lot of life left in her. Positive thinking!
Have a great Saturday!
