Jovial Gluten Free Cookies and Brown Rice Pasta Giveaway

Jovial‚ĄĘ Foods¬†has agreed to sponsor another gluten free giveaway, this time it’s for their gluten free fruit filled cookies¬†and brown rice pasta. If you’re a regular reader, you may have read my Jovial Brown Rice Pasta Review¬†from over a year ago. Since then, Jovial made Food & Wine’s top pick for gluten free brown rice pasta. Though the previous review included a giveaway that has already ended, it will give you an idea of what their pasta is made of and the gluten free certification, etc.

The Facility and Certification

Their facility was specifically designed to ensure an absolutely safe product, but it is not dedicated gluten free. They bake using dedicated equipment on separate production days. And each batch is certified and tested for gluten at less than 10ppm (parts per million) through the GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group) of North America’s GFCO (Gluten Free Certification Organization).

My Review of Jovial Gluten Free Cookies

Today I am reviewing their new gluten free fruit-filled cookie line. Let me just say this. I am in heaven, alone, because they do not contain tapioca, which turns out I am allergic to (though I continue to develop recipes which contain it.) The other reason I’m in heaven is because I have fallen in love with their fig filled cookies. They’re soft and chewy, and the filling is much like I remember Fig Newton’s to be, perhaps better, since I wasn’t a big Fig Newton’s fan. I’m just a sucker for a soft cookie. This girl’s gotta have her starch! The chocolate cookies, both vanilla cream and chocolate cream, are on the crunchy side and my hubby loved all of them, as he enjoys both crunchy and soft cookies. However, his fave is the fig fruit filled ones. Check out the ingredients and photos of the products below.
