Was out for coffee today at Starbucks and I noticed that they had prepackaged cookies by the counter. I personally have not seen these cookies before but they seem to be well labeled.

We were in Toronto on the weekend and DH found these at Starbucks. I scrutinized the label and found they were OK for my kids, so they ate them. DD, however, complained of a slightly itchy tongue that went away quickly without benadryl, which makes me suspect she is slightly allergic to one of the bean flours in the cookies, or there was cross contamination with sesame or something. Haven't checked it out yet. DS, on the other hand, who has more allergies, had no problems with it.

Oh also, in case anyone is wondering, the taste is OK, but the texture is a bit different than regular cookies. They are very dry and crispy, so those wanting a chewy cookie would be disappointed. They would be handy for being out at Starbucks with no snacks for the kids. I just ate the 2nd bag since DD seemed to have a mild reaction to the first bag.

I've heard from quite a few people who've sampled/liked.

FYI from Dr. Lucy's site (and turns out, she's a real doc):

Quote:
Dear Valued Customer,

Our Quality Assurance Program incorporates three key standards you and your family can count on:

1. We only buy raw materials from carefully selected producers, thus reducing or eliminating the chance for allergen contact before we use the ingredients.

2. We use the best available methods to ensure there are no detectable allergens from our testing list: gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts and almonds.

3. We don’t allow any of these items into our bakery. In fact, peanuts and tree nuts aren’t even allowed in our building!

Our Quality Assurance Program provides delicious treats for you and your family while doing everything we can to safeguard you from these specific allergens: gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts.

As an M.D. and mother of a child with severe food allergies, I understand the necessity for strict quality standards and how to achieve them. Every Lucy’s® cookie is made with you in mind.

Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
Too bad about the chickpea flour-R can't eat them.
