It seems that there are more and more people nowadays who have some sort of food intolerance whether it’s celiac disease or intolerance to some form of gluten or wheat. Or it’s an interolerance to eggs or nuts – people’s stomachs are becoming increasingly sensitive to certain foods. Luckily, there are a few companies out there that makes delicious and nutritious food for people with certain intolerances or preferances. One company that we’ve come to appreciate is Nana’s Cookie Company. Nana’s Cookie Company makes sweets that are specially formulated for those that are intolerant of gluten, wheat, dairy, and eggs. They use all-natural ingredients in their sweets and do not use any genetically modified ingredients. Their sweets are sweetened naturally with fruit juice without any use of refined sugars and their vegan sweets are packed with 12 important vitamins and minerals since it’s hard for most vegans to get the necessary dietary nutrients.
Nana’s Cookie Company is a real gem for those who are looking for something sweet to eat but can not find sweets that are not made with wheat, dairy, eggs, and gluten. Aside from baking these naturally delicious cookies and bars yourself, sometimes it’s easier to just open up a box of Nana’s Cookie Company’s sweets, unwrap an individual cookie and be satisfied. Since they are all individually wrapped, they stay fresh longer and they make great snacks to pack in lunches or when you’re on-the-go. I think they’re also great to pack in a basket to give to a friend who is either vegan/vegetarian or gluten intelorant.
Nana’s Cookie Company started as a humble little home business when the owner and creator baked cookies and bars sweetened with natural fruit juices. When her sweets became an instant hit, she decided to expand her business which is now known as Nana’s Cookie Company.
I know several people who are either vegan or have an intelorance to gluten and when I gave them a cookie bar to sample, they were surprised that the cookie was sweetened with fruit juice instead of regular sugar. I think you can definitely taste the difference between fruit juice sweetened and regular sugar sweetented cookies. The cookie bars are moist because of the fruit juice and it’s not too sweet, but sweet enough to satisfy a sweet tooth. Nana’s Cookie Company’s cookie bars are not too big and they’re great to enjoy with a cup of hot tea or milk (if for the kiddies). I was lucky enough to try their Fudgy Wudgy, Chocolate Chippy, and Peanut Butter Bites since Nana’s Cookie Company had sent me a few boxes to try and review. My son really likes the Fudgy Wudgy bars because of its rich chocolate flavor and so do I.
If you or your kids are big fans of Curious George, you’ll be happy to know that Curious George the Monkey is their official sponsor. You’ll find the adorable little monkey on their packages which would be a delight for the little kids and you can also save the packages to redeem for either a Curious George DVD or Matching Game: http://www.nanascookiecompany.com/index.html#4. When my son and I were at the Natural Products Expo earlier this year, we had the sincere pleasure of meeting Curious George the Monkey and had some fun photo ops with him too. My son and Curious George the Monkey kept hugging each other and giving each other high-fives – it was a lot of fun!
