My Verdict: I didn’t *love* them. I thought I would. I planned on it. But truthfully, I just didn’t. It’s not that they were “bad”. I just didn’t enjoy them as much as I have other brands of gluten free sugar cookies.
The Bad: While this box of mix is such an accomplishment for the world of gluten free goodies, there are some concerns to consider with the “Funfetti Cookies”.
- According to the box, it makes up to three dozen cookies. For normal sized cookies, I believe I only got about 1.5 dozen. Even if I hadn’t burnt them and they were shaped as the same size (reasonably sized), I doubt I could gotten more than 2 dozen cookies out of the box…
- I found the cookie dough I ended up with, to be extremely crumbly – making it hard to use to form dough. It may have been something I did wrong or not as well as I could have, but that was what I found to be a struggle in using the “dough” (it didn’t actually resemble dough for the most part, but some grace is being given since I don’t always follow directions to a “T”.
The good: It’s cheap. Mine came up as under 3 bucks at Walmart. It’s decent. Like I said, I thought another brand was better. But if 3 dollars (or 2.98) is the regular price, this is the brand I will be getting for when I need a “sugar cookie” fix. The price is unbeatable.
All in all and considering the mix was under 3 dollars, it earns about a “B -” on the grading scale.
