The awesome (AWESOME!) folks over at Liz Lovely make the best vegan cookies.... err, strike that.... the best dang cookies on the planet, vegan or not. They also run a coolio little fan page over on Facebook where they often give away these circles of yum to overjoyed fans. Recently, I was one such lucky winner, and just yesterday I received the most wonderful present on my doorstep:
Opened, it revealed a package of every one of the rich and decadent flavors LL makes. That's 8 packages of two huge cookies each, for those of you keeping track. Check 'em out:
For the record, you're looking at Macaroonies Sock-it-to-Me, Peanut Butter Classics, Ginger Snapdragons, Cowboy Cookies, Cowgirl Cookies, Goats a' Grazin, Chocolate Moose Dragons, and Snicker Dudes. It's enough to make my head spin... and my waistline grow!
Regarding the latter, should you choose to read the nutritional info on these guys (and really, you might want to skip it), you could assume there's been a mistake. But, no, it's true that each one of these cookies has about 400 calories a pop. They are cholesterol and cruelty - free, of course, but there's been no skimping on fat, sugar, or chocolate here, and that makes for great taste! However, it also means that if a wee person like myself eats the two cookies that come in a package, I've eaten about half my caloric intake for the day. This knowledge will not keep me from eating through this whole box though, so I've come up with a win-win situation I think you'll like:
I'm giving them away! (Ok, well not all of them, but most. I gotta have my faves, and so does the husband). This way I don't eat my way to bigger jeans, and I get to share with you all some of the yummiest treats the world has to offer. How to win, you ask? Simply leave a comment on this posting stating why you'd like to try some vegan cookies between now and May 22. On said day, I will pick 5 people at random to each get a package of cookies. If you're picked, I'll have you send me your address, and off to the post office I'll go. A few days later you'll have super-moist, tooth-aching goodness to consume courtesy of your friendly vegan blogger.
So, go ahead and enter. Vegans, others, family, friends, strangers, lurkers - you're all encouraged. I can't wait for you to try these cookies!
