She's managing it with diet and medication, and she's been doing pretty well with it. However, she misses her sweets.
So, I set out to find some sweets Mama Melissa could have without raising her sugar levels... and I found the sugar free cookies from Carolina Cookie Company.
For this review, We were sent the Sugar Free Gold Cookie Gift Box.
^^The unopened box^^
The cookies arrived in a gold box, with a ribbon tied in a bow. I liked that little detail, since it made the package actually like a gift.

Sugar Free Gold Cookie Gift Boxes

Our sugar free cookies are truly different, with great taste baked into every single bite. And Carolina Cookie offers three great sugar free flavors everyone loves: Classic Chunky Chocolate, yummy Peanut Butter, and Oatmeal. Perfect for anyone who is on a sugar-free or special diabetic diet, our sugar free cookies are sinfully delicious but without the sugar. When you buy gourmet cookies from Carolina Cookie Company you know they are fresh baked. Please be advised that our sugar-free cookies are not a reduced calorie cookie. They are intended for consumption by diabetics.
This was our favorite of the 3 varieties we received. Very soft and crumbled easily in the hand. It reminded us of a Chewy Chips Ahoy! cookie. The only hard bits in the cookie were the chocolate chips themselves. But I noticed sometimes when using sugar-free baking chips, they don’t melt down the best. These also left a bit of a funky aftertaste… then again, most sugar-free chocolate does.
Nice peanut butter flavor to this. Not overpowering, but not underwhelming either. The little bits of peanuts (or were they peanut butter chips?) were a really nice surprise.
These were the least favorite of the 3 varieties we received. Mama Melissa doesn’t like any type of oatmeal to begin with, and to me, the cookie was dry. It had a grainy texture to it, and didn’t really taste like oatmeal. I would have liked more of an oatmeal flavor in these.
What we really liked about these cookies were the fact that they really didn’t taste sugar-free. They reminded me a LOT of the Archway brand or the Grandma’s brand of cookies, where you KNOW they are store-bought, but they don’t taste it.
The only problem I see disabled folks having with these cookies is the inner bag they ship it. If you have trouble using sharp objects (scissors, a knife, etc) to open bags, you may need help with this. The bow may also be an issue, but it is just tied in a normal bow, so it can be untied with a pull.
As with all diabetic sweets, excessive consumption could lead to diarrhea/stomach issues. Please keep this in mind if you need help with toileting.
This is available from the Carolina Cookie website. Prices may vary.
Delicious cookies that don't spike blood sugar numbers. A complete win for diabetics or people just watching their sugar intake.
