I recently had the fun opportunity to try several package of Tate's Bake Shop Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies that Tates was so generous to send on to me. As I pulled the packages of cookies out of the box when it arrived my first step was to check out the ingredients. I know Tate's had great basic ingredients last time I had the chance to try some of their cookies and I was more than pleased to see that this bake shop has stuck with it and provided another cookie that had all ingredients that I recognize and more importantly can actually pronounce!
Actually these cookies are made with the exact same ingredients you make a homemade batch of cookies with. This brought a smile to my face and as I took my first bite of the Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie I could tell right away that the simple ingredients showed through in the flavor of the cookies. They honestly taste just like homemade ones, but without all the mess! Not only do they taste homemade, but they also look it. We've all seen the generic style, store bought chocolate chip cookie that no matter how many you pull out of the package they each look exactly the same (just not natural in my personal opinion). Well not here! Each cookie has a little different shape and look, but all have the same great taste and a crunch meant to go with a big glass of milk or better yet to accompany a bowl of homemade vanilla bean ice cream!
In case my word isn't good enough, how about the fact that this Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie won GOLD in the Cookie category in the 2011 sofi™ Awards, presented at the Fancy Food Show (known as the Oscars® of the specialty food industry) in Washington, DC.

Gluten Free Options!
If you are thinking that wow, wish I could do this, but I can't have gluten. I'm with ya, because we've had to cut all wheat and likely next all gluten out of our son's diet as we figure out what is causing him to show signs of a food allergy. When I was perusing Tate's Bake Shop website I noticed they have an array of gluten free cookies. Check it out and let me know what your think!
