Treats on the Trail: WB Kitchen
Disclosure: the following products were donated for the purpose of review. The opinions are mine and true.
I’m known at work as the Cookie Queen. I LOVE COOKIES! I love to bake cookies and I love even more to eat cookies.
When we received our sample box from WB Kitchens, I don’t know if I could have been more excited. The sampler includes bars and… cookies!
Now let’s get down to business. These are seriously good bars and of course good cookies.
Each bar and cookie are unique, but most have some similar qualities. Many are Paleo, gluten free, dairy free and soy free and the ingredient list is simple. Check out the ingredients for my favorite, the Coconut Shortbread Cookie:
INGREDIENTS: Honey, Almond Flour, Coconut Flour*, Shredded Coconut*, Coconut Oil*, Vanilla Extract*, Sea Salt, Cinnamon* (*organic)
Texture. This is something that I find to be extremely important. Some companies have created bars that are horrendous. Not WB Kitchen. Their bars are a wonderful balance of nuts and filling. No weird slime or unnatural goo. The cookies are almost the consistency of cookie dough, more of a mostly baked cookie. They are thick, so its not like a chocolate chip cookie that is grossly gooey in the middle and crispy around the edges.
And… they taste delicious! There are some really good options, it could be hard deciding which ones to chose! (Just go with the sampler!)
Bars: Chocolate, Honey Nut, Peanut Ginger, Mocha Java
Cookies: Coconut Shortbread, Peanut Butter, Cinnamon Raisin, Brownie, Chocolate Chip, Maple Pecan
With any great quality product can come with a bit higher price. Each bar and pair of cookies are $3 a piece, however, you can get a little bit of a price break when you buy a case or a sampler pack. What can be a con for some (but not for me) is the texture of the cookies. Please see above.
WB Kitchen was created in 2012 by a husband and wife team (Chris and Anna Feuille) in Loveland, CO and they really care about what they make. They use organic ingredients as much as possible, the honey for the cookies is local (to them in Colorado), and they use unsweetened, natural cocoa powder. Also, check out their blog for some really great recipes! Some recent recipes found there: Coconut Milk Biscuits, Pistachio Date Truffles and Paleo Pad Thai, Kelp Noodles.
