Recently I joined Influenster , an exciting product testing group. They sent me a box of products. It's my job to test them and let you all know what I think. I received these free products from Influenster for product testing. The items were complementary, but the opinions are all my own.
QUAKER SOFT BAKED COOKIES - RAISIN
The first product I decided to test was the Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookie from Quaker... mostly because I was hungry. I was a little concerned about the raisins. I hate raisins... it's a texture thing. The first thing I noticed when I took the cookie out of the package is that it seemed really moist and was a really big cookie. This was no tiny, crunchy cookie, people. Quaker was serious about this. I broke the cookie into three pieces. My husband, my three-year-old, and I all tasted the cookie.
Husband: "Pretty good... Flavor is kind of like an Archway cookie... I'd definitely eat more."
Son: "Mmmm...." Do you like it? "Yes." Tell me about it. "It's... weird... like a cookie, but a muffin... yeah... a muffin... can I have this for breakfast tomorrow, too?"
Me: Soft. Chewy. Hardly noticed the raisins except in flavor (a good thing for me)
Result: I would buy these for my family. I order my groceries online through www.peapod.com and they run $2.69 or $2.79 for a package of 6. These have 170 calories per serving. I can see this as a nice little afternoon snack and it does seem like a "healthier" cookie option for my little kiddo than chips or some of the other cookie options on the market. This was super yummy and the other flavors look tasty as well: Chocolate & Almond, Cranberry & Yogurt, and Banana Nut are available from my grocer.
After eating the cookie, I thought maybe I should have taken a picture of it... too late!
