What I Like

  • Individually packed: practical for snack time.
  • Made of plant based protein.
  • Wide variety of flavours.

What I Don't Like

  • Individually packed: big amount of plastic waste.
  • Chicory root extract can cause stomach ache.
  • Taste may not be suitable for everybody.

The Complete Cookie should be a convenient source of plant based proteins that taste downright delicious. Are tasteful and nutritive due to the up to 16g of plant based proteins and 10g of fiber. This also causes satisfyingly firm and chewy vegan cookies. These vegan cookies are non-GMO project verified, Vegan and Kosher friendly. Ingredients don’t include dairy, soy, eggs, high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners.

However the individually packed disposal can be really practical for office and trip snacks, the plastic bag packaging means a big waste in my humble opinion. Also, you have to check how the chicory root extract and fibers the cookie contains react to your stomach. Surely I guess you won't want to suffer from unpleasant gases.

However, crunchy texture can become sandy texture, causing easy shelling. It will depend on how crunchy you want your snack to be. I guess it is a perfect alternative to a vegan dessert preparation with a cream and crunchy contrast.

You can consider them a bit dry in texture and with a soft flavor, not especially in a good way. Also, they are not a cheap alternative in the market considering the size of the bag.

I guess you surely are tempted to at least three of all these delicious options. Have you chosen your favorite one?
