Well, I will say that this is definitely a unique flavor for a cookie that you really don’t see too often. Bonus points for the creativity. However, I’m really not the biggest lemon fan and to be honest, I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a lemon poppy seed flavored product before in my life. I didn’t really know what to expect, so I went into this Lemon Poppy Seed Complete Cookie review basically blind.
Lemon Poppy Seed Complete Cookie Review
Hmm… I actually ended up enjoying this cookie, which was kind of surprising. As far as texture goes, it was about middle of the road compared to the other Complete Cookie flavors; fairly firm but soft enough once you get to chewing. The lemon flavor in the cookie was obviously present, but it wasn’t too strong or sour to my delight. The poppy seeds spread throughout the cookie balance out the lemon as well since it adds more of an earthy, nutty taste to offset it. Overall, it was a fairly pleasant taste.
The whole cookie totals out to 380 calories consisting of the macros 16p/60c/8f in addition to 6g fiber. The macros aren’t too bad in comparison to their other flavors, in fact it might have the lowest fat yet the highest carbs out of all the flavors so I guess it really just depends on what your personal macros are. A serving size is only ½ cookie on the nutrition fact on the back… But honestly, who’s really going to go through the process of taking the other half of the cookie and inserting it into a zip-lock bag to save for later?
I feel like I left my feelings quite ambiguous in this Lemon Poppy Seed Complete Cookie review. To sum them up… I enjoyed this cookie a decent amount, but it wasn’t one of my favorite flavors from Lenny & Larry’s. It certainly wasn’t the worst either, however it was probably more in the bottom half rather than the top half, for me at least. On the plus side the flavor is definitely unique as you don’t see a poppy seed component in too many products like this, so if you’re a big fan of that ingredient then this could be one of your favorite flavors actually as I know some people who do feel that way. Give it a try to find out for yourself I say.
