Chunkie Dunkies – you heard of ’em? If not, thank God you found your way here to read up.
Chunkie Dunkie makes cookies, brownies, and biscotti that are Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free and Kosher. You won’t find flour in these bad boys – they are made with whole raw nuts! Dina, the founder and a raw vegan chef, challenged herself to make the very best tasting healthy cookies around, and I’ll say that she has succeeded.
She sent over a big goodie basket, which included:
- Almond Butter Singles
- Mint Chocolate Chip Singles
- Chocolate Chip Singles
- Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies
- Special Assortment Package (including Carrot Cake)
One thing to realize before going into these cookies – they do not have your average cookie texture (due to no flour). I think for some people, it is important to know that. However, that does not mean that taste is tarnished in any way. These cookies are sweet, chewy, and definitely fix a craving. My favorite one was the Mint Chocolate Chip – because, holy minty goodness. I’m such a sucker for mint/choco combo. The regular chocolate chip also stood out. I am not normally a huge fan of carrot cake, but these were on point. So carrot cake lovers, this is the cookie for you.
The brownie was actually much better than I anticipated. For some reason, I thought it would be kinda dry but this was not the case! If you like nuts in your brownies, than you will love these. Chunks of fudge and nuts? Yes please.
One thing I have to point out is the fact that you look at the label on these treats and you’re like “oh yeah, I know what all this shit is!” Go ahead and look at what’s in a [accidentally] vegan Oreo. Uh… yeah. High fructose corn syrup? No thanks, I’ll take the pure maple syrup.
I am thinking I need the Cashew Lemon Cream cookies in my life, because… cashews and lemon are probably my two favorite things in the entire world. I’m drooling just thinking about how good they must taste.
So really, if you guys are looking for a sweet cookie or brownie fix and love supporting kind, giving, and wonderful companies, visit Chunkie Dunkie Gourmet Snacks.
