ChocolateBet: June 28, 2008

Chocolate of the Day:
2 cookies/1 serving
Aunt Gussie's
Chocolate Chip Almond (sugar free, gluten-free cookies)
Very Good; can't really taste the almonds.
Wt: 29 grams in 2 cookies/6 oz. (170 g.) total box
Calories: 130 calories in 2 cookies
Cost: $6.99 box
Purchased from Piazza's, in Palo Alto, CA

I can't eat wheat/gluten, so it's nice to continue to find gluten-free chocolate-containing items on the shelves of a local grocery store. I didn't see that these cookies were also sugar-free until I got home. (I bought two other flavors of these cookies that were not sugar-free.) The maltitol used as a sweetener doesn't seem to affect the taste, but my stomach is grumbling a bit five minutes after eating these. (Warning label on the box cautions about eating too much maltitol.) I think I'd rather take my chances with a bit of sugar.
