Keebler Gingerbread Men Cookies: Not Up To Snuff With Keebler's Usual High Standards

Jan 14, 2012

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Nice gingerbread shape, colored sugar, cookie tray form.

Cons:Weak taste, overpriced, seasonal product.

The Bottom Line: They look cute but looks aren't everything.





The Keebler display had three different kind of holiday cookies for sale; the gingerbread ones were the ones that I really wanted because I have a slight addition to hard gingerbread cookies. Even though these are a seasonal product the box has a "best by" date of April 2012 so if you see these on clearance chances are you will be able to polish them off before they are expired. Even though I love gingerbread cookies both soft and hard, these were barely three stars. Keebler usually produces some tasty treats and even if they aren't something that I care for someone else in the house will polish them off. I found it really ironic that the first one I grabbed out of the last box looked like this: http://twitpic.com/82tsee

Visually these are like almost all of the other gingerbread cookies you'll find on sale during the holiday season. They have an almost identical shape to the Stauffer's Iced Gingerbread Cookies but instead of there being an iced coating there are red and green colored sugars. The imagery on them could be a little nicer but for a cookie tray type of cookie these don't look bad. They are baked inside a tray so the raised areas on them give them more detail but the face could definitely use some work. The sugar sprinkle mix isn't heavy but you can expect about a teaspoon of loose sugar at the bottom of the foil bag.

Like almost all gingerbread cookies that are made to be hard, these are prone to losing their snap if they are not sealed up properly. A plastic zipper bag is all you need to keep them fresh. You can dunk them in milk but not hot cocoa or coffee; they do tend to fall apart with hot drinks. The boxes are ten ounces so it's a little smaller than some other gingerbread cookie products but the price is about three dollars a box so they are priced higher. I bought one box before the holiday and picked up a couple more when they were marked down 50%. Save-A-Lot started marking down things two days before Christmas but there were still tons of all three Keebler seasonal cookie there after the holiday.

A serving is considered five cookies; that's not bad but if you try these and like them you might have trouble sticking to that number. Each serving contains 150 calories, 4 grams of fat, 26 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of protein. Per the Keebler warning "Contains soy, wheat and milk ingredients. May contain tree nuts". If you have a food allergy read the box before consuming as they can change the ingredients at any time.

Why didn't I like these as much as other gingerbread cookies? The taste. It doesn't have a true gingerbread taste. Maybe I am spoiled by some of the homemade ones that I got over the years or the recipe that I sort of perfected for homemade ones. The taste is weak and pale; I know that they are making these to appeal to the masses but the ginger and nutmeg taste just isn't there. They do have a nice snap and crunch when you are eating them but to me they are weak in flavor. If you don't bake and are looking for something with color and seasonal appeal for a dessert tray then these might be a nice pick but don't expect them to have a top shelf taste to them.
