Review: Sweet Alexis (peanut, nut, dairy, and egg free) plus discount!
Posted by Annie
I received a package from Sweet Alexis, and what an amazing package it was! It contained two decorated cookies, chocolate chip cookies, ginger cookies, pumpkin raisin bread, and banana bread. All of their products are peanut, egg, dairy, and egg free! Sweet Alexis was developed by a mom whose daughter, Alexis, has multiple “life threatening” food allergies to the following: All dairy products and derivatives of dairy, eggs, shellfish, all nuts, including tree nuts and peanuts, mustard and cherries.
She also has environmental allergies and is asthmatic. She is so severe that three separate doctors have refused to perform skin tests on her for fear that she would go into anaphylaxis. These products are made by a mom who KNOWS all to well the battle of trying to keep our children safe from their allergens. She has had a long, scary road, and battles every day to stay safe. You can read her story here.
The first thing my girls wanted to tear into were the beautifully decorated cookies. My one daughter loves pink, so she chose the Heart Cookie. My other loves blue, so she chose the Patriotic cookie. My girls said the cookies were so delicious! They wouldn’t let me have a taste, so I have to take their word for it.
Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite, so I dug right into those. I took a bite, and it was one of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever tried! I can honestly say, I have a new favorite cookie! They truly are delicious! They are soft and have large chocolate chips. I hate to admit, but I gave my girls and hubby one to try, and ate the rest of the bag myself! It took me three days to eat them, so luckily the bag is resealable. They stayed fresh and soft, even after I opened the bag repeatedly. My family agreed that these were some of the best chocolate chip cookies they have tried. There will be people who say, they are just chocolate chip cookies, how good could they be? Once you have had a Sweet Alexis chocolate chip cookie, all the rest will fail in comparison.
I am not a big fan of ginger cookies, and my husband is not a big fan of sweets, but he opened the bag, had one, and said, “Wow, these are good!”. I tried one and he was right. They are good! They have just the right amount of ginger to make them taste good, but not be overwhelming. The texture and consistency of the cookie is great too. Both of my girls thought they were yummy too! Both cookies were the perfect size, and tasted like fresh-baked homemade cookies! I cannot say enough about how great these cookies are!
We then tried the breads! Both were amazing. The banana bread rivals my home-made banana bread. Both breads are soft and moist, and very tasty! I love pumpkin, and never considered putting raisins in it, but it was really good and tasted like a spice bread. The tops were soft, like when they are home-made. I honestly, cannot find one thing bad to say about any of their products. They were just downright GOOD! I was amazed that they are peanut free, nut free, dairy free, AND egg free! I would have never guessed.
