Looky, Looky Great-Tasting, Healthy Cookies!

Got a craving? Try a little TLC…

You’ve heard us time and again drag out the tired old cliché, “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.” Not today. Not when we’re talking about truly tasty cookies that contain the least amount of preservatives, additives, and harmful ingredients and use real, all-natural ingredients!

Case in point: Kashi TLC Tasty Little Chewy Cookies – Oatmeal Dark Chocolate

These scrumptious little suckers only taste too good to be true. They’re the real deal – void of all preservatives and other junk ingredients that you’ll find in most brand name cookies sitting on the grocery store shelves!

And that, my friends, is a ray of sunshine in a world of treats clouded over by junk ingredients and harmful additives. But don’t take our word for it…take a look.

Decoding the Fine Print

The awesome ingredients found in Kashi’s Tasty Little Chewy Cookies prove that lots of Tender Loving Care went into making these cookies. If only all brands put this much TLC into their products:

  • 7 whole grains and sesame are the main ingredients that make up this yummy cookie!
  • 3 grams of fiber and 11 grams of whole grains found in each serving.
  • No hydrogenated oils or any other source of trans fats hidden on the label.
  • Brown rice syrup (a nutritious complex carb that provides sweetness WITHOUT sugar highs or empty calories) and dark chocolate chips make these cookies extra tasty, while providing antioxidants. Whatta bonus!

No matter how hard we try, we just can’t find anything wrong with these cookies. They’re healthy and tasty – and Kashi offers us a variety.

BrandAid Cookie Guidelines

To choose a cookie that you can enjoy (in moderation) follow these simple BrandAid guidelines:

For starters, be sure to watch out for front label scams like “made from whole grains,” “reduced fat” or “no trans fats” and go directly to the ingredients list for all the clues you need.

Next, avoid these junk ingredients at all costs:

  • Trans fats (partially hydrogenated oils).
  • Highly processed refined sugars, especially high fructose corn syrup.
  • Artificial sweeteners of any kind!
  • Artificial colors or flavors.

Note: Cookies made from all natural organic ingredients are a plus!

With this prescription for a healthier cookie, you’ll have no trouble filling your whole basket with tasty cookies. Or, if you don’t have time to peruse labels, grab one of the recommended BestBrands off of our cookie tray!
