Review: Om Nom Nom Cookies

20th July 2013

Om Nom Nom Cookies contacted me to sample their six vegan cookies with different flavors: Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Snickerdoodle, Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal, Orange Zested Chocolate Chip, Spicy Mexican Snickerdoodle and Ultimate Peanut Butter. They offer a mix-and-match pack consisting of six individual vegan cookies for $18. The Mix-and-Match cookies are a great way to experience all of their flavors and combinations. The cookies are individually packaged in 100% USDA-approved cellophane wrappers.

Verdict

To begin with, these vegan On Nom Nom cookies are pretty tasty and I have two favorites already: the Ultimate Peanut Butter and Spicy Mexican Snickerdoodles. These are mouth watering snacks indeed! They are 100% vegan, handmade in small batches, and individually packaged in 100% USDA-approved cellophane wrappers. They are made with whole grain flours and natural sweeteners. They don’t contain preservatives.

They have one gluten-free option for Chocolate Chip flavor, an Om Nom Nom classic. That would be awesome if they can provide more gluten-free options for other flavors.

Chocolate Chip

It is a pretty standard cookie. It is mildly sweet, light and crunchy. I found the Chocolate Chip crunchier than the rest of the cookies. I personally prefer my chocolate chip cookies chewy and soft. Plus the cookie isn’t greasy, which is a plus. It would be great if there are more chocolate chips in it.

Ingredients:
unbleached wheat flour, semi sweet chocolate chips, brown sugar, canola oil, evaporated cane juice, almond milk, tapioca flour, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt.


Chocolate Snickerdoodles

According to their description, it is “a rich chocolate cookie with a dash of premium Saigon cassia cinnamon, dusted with organic vegan sugar made from evaporated cane juice.” The texture is similar to the Chocolate Chip cookie, but in chocolate. It is mostly chocolate with snickerdoodle undertones.

Ingredients:
unbleached wheat flour, evaporated cane juice, canola oil, organic light agave nectar, cocoa powder, almond milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, baking soda, salt.


Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal

This is your ideal old-fashioned oatmeal breakfast cookie. It is massive, and bigger than the rest of the cookies we’ve sampled. It has a bit of dark syrup taste from the agave nectar with visible dried cranberries and rolled oats.

Ingredients:
English walnuts, whole grain rolled oats, unbleached wheat flour, organic light agave nectar, brown sugar, cranberries, organic coconut oil, almond milk, vanilla extract, baking soda, cinnamon, salt.


Orange-Zested Chocolate Chip

The cookie has a very calming orange zest aroma. The sweet orange zest adds a pleasing citrusiness to the chocolate chip cookie. Thanks for convincing me to go visit Florida for their yummy oranges!

Ingredients:
unbleached wheat flour, semi sweet chocolate chips, brown sugar, canola oil, evaporated cane juice, almond milk, tapioca flour, orange zest, baking soda, salt.


Spicy Mexican Snickerdoodles

This is my first time to try the flavor, plus I never had a spicy cookie before (well except for very gingery cookies). But this has a bit of awesome heat from the cayenne pepper and the sweetness from their premium Saigon cassia cinnamon. The heat is all back of the tongue. This is our second favorite, along with their Ultimate Peanut Butter. It is almost similar to the Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles, except the texture is softer.

Ingredients:
unbleached wheat flour, evaporated cane juice, canola oil, organic light agave nectar, cocoa powder, almond milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, baking soda, salt.


Ultimate Peanut Butter

This is our top favorite. It has a smooth, velvety peanut butter texture with slashes on top. There are no nutty textures. It doesn’t have a peanut butter mouthfeel, but has peanut butter flavor.

Ingredients:
unbleached wheat flour, organic light agave nectar, organic peanut butter (roasted peanuts, salt) canola oil, brown sugar, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt.
