Tasty, crunchy, sweet ginger cookies

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:tasty cookies, molasses and ginger, low fat, no cholesterol

Cons:sugar, calories

The Bottom Line: tasty cookies from Nabisco, a brand that I trust


Whenever I think of ginger snaps, I think of an episode of “Nero Wolfe” in which an ill-mannered man eats ginger snaps at Wolfe’s desk, getting crumbs all over and throwing the fastidious detective into a fit of rage.

These cookies can be messy when they “snap”. You can break them apart with your hands or bite into them. They are very crunchy. I like crunchy.

Product description

These little cookies come in a 16 ounce box by weight, and it costs about $4. They are plain, with no frosting. They don’t need any frosting. They are made with real ginger and real molasses, two of my favorite sweet flavors.

Little children seem to think that the spice in these cookies is too strong, and besides, they want frosting, so I can eat all I want without them begging for me to give them some.

I like to eat them plain, but they are also good for popping into the edges of a bowl of pudding, or crumbling up for a different kind of fruit cobbler crust, or dipping into milk. Sometimes I crumble some of these cookies into a bowl of oatmeal for a different texture and flavor. They do say that variety is the spice of life, and ginger is my favorite spice.

If you get really ambitious, you can seal up some of these cookies in a Ziploc baggie and pound them until they crumble, then use them as a spicy alternative to graham cracker pie crust. Just add a little butter or shortening, so the mixture sticks to the pie tin.

The box says that one serving is four cookies, with 120 calories, and only 20 calories from fat. There is no saturated fat, no trans fat and no cholesterol.

The ingredients are pretty much the same as most cookies, except for the ginger and molasses:

Enriched flour, folic acid, sugar, molasses preserved with sulfur dioxide, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, leavening (baking soda, calcium phosphate), ginger, salt, soy lecithin (emulsifier).

Recommendation

If you want a treat that the kids won’t be begging you to share with them, this is it. Ginger snap also have lots of uses in deserts such as pies and puddings, so go ahead and experiment.

Thank you so much for reading my Epinion!
