Pros:Good, wholesome ingredients.
Cons:Taste and smell. Both are bad.
The Bottom Line: I'm glad Joseph's has a huge line of sugar-free cookies. Most of them are pretty good. But not this flavor.
Joseph's makes a lot of different types of sugar-free cookies. Some are better than others. I think I've found the worst. Their chocolate walnut variety is bad. Really bad.

These are bite-sized, crispy cookies. Each is a little over an inch diameter. They are brown in color, with little pieces of walnuts. There is something dreadfully wrong about the flavor in the cookie part of this cookie. The chocolate simply does not taste like chocolate at all. The walnuts are pretty good, they are reasonable in size, and you can definitely taste the walnut flavor. But the overriding flavor comes from the cookie, and that part's just bad.
Just as bad as the taste of these cookies is the smell. At first, when I stuck my nose into the bag, I thought perhaps the foil that the bag is made from was giving off an odor. So I took out a few of the cookies and let them "air out" for a few minutes. I gave them a whiff and discovered that it wasn't the bag. It's the cookies. They smell bad, and they taste bad. I can smell the walnuts and something else. But nothing that even hints at chocolate. I can't identify what else I smell, but I know I don't like it.
Four cookies makes a serving, which contains 95 calories, 5g of fat,14g of carb, 1g of fiber, and of course, 0g of sugar. Approximately 11 servings come in the 11 oz. bag.
While I don't like these cookies, I'm impressed with the simplicity of their ingredients: flour, maltitol, cocoa, walnuts, oil, vanilla, and baking soda. That's it! No scary-sounding stuff! The maltitol gives them their sweetness. As some people experience gastric distress by consuming foods with maltitol, be sure to start out with small doses until you're sure how you'll react.
My supermarket sells Joseph's sugar-free cookies in their own section, in the cookie aisle. Each bag is just under $4, making them a bit more expensive than most of the other brands of sugar-free cookies. Usually I find the Joseph's cookies worth the price, but not this particular variety.
