That’s… a really long title.
Since today is gym day I decided to try the new vegan cookie from Starbucks. (They’re also giving you double stars if you use the app to pay!) It’s a pretty big cookie, which means lots of calories, so I’d recommend sharing with a friend!
The almonds and macadamia nuts give it a really nice flavor, and the cranberries are a good alternative to raisins too. Plus, the pumpkin seeds add nicely to the texture! However, it has orange and lemon zest in it, and I’m not the biggest fan of citrusy deserts… I probably wouldn’t have bought it had I known it beforehand. 🙄 But if that’s your kind of flavor you’re in for a treat!
It’s a soft chewy-ish cookie, and they can warm it up for you too! You can order your drink with almond milk to compensate for the extra calories, hahaha. 😉 It’s 390 calories to be exact. For comparison purposes, the (non-vegan) chocolate chip cookie has 570 calories. That’s like, a whole meal worth of calories! 😰
Man, I miss the days I didn’t count calories…
Anyways, all in all it’s a tasty cookie if you like orange zest, but it’s a treat better shared with a second person (so you can eat without the guilt 😜).
I hope this was helpful! Let me know if you’d like to see more review posts like this one. I love reading reviews before buying anything, I feel like I avoid wasting money when I do so!
Have you tried the macadamia oat cookie? What did you think of it? If you haven’t, are you thinking of giving it a try? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
PS: what do you think of the signature on the pictures? I think I finally found one that I like!
Although it’ll only work on plain backgrounds. Editing pictures in photoshop was so much easier, I need multiple apps to try to achieve a look I’m okay with, but it’s never the way I actually want it…
See you next time!
