Tasty Morsels: MI-DEL Ginger Snaps

I know we'd all like to assume that since we bought something at a natural foods store that it's good for us, but unfortunately that just isn't the case. Remember the cookies from Alternative Baking Company? They looked wholesome, but when I took a closer look, they turned out to be 500 calories per cookie!

So when I saw MI-DEL Ginger Snaps, I was slightly cautious. I'm a huge fan of anything made with ginger (Reeds Ginger Brew and candy), so I was hoping for the best, but expecting the worst. The package has that little USDA organic label on it, and says "O grams trans fat." Sounds good so far, right?

Want to see if these cookies are worth your time? I'd love to show you a picture of these tasty cookies and the nutritional information, so

Serving Size 7 cookies
Calories 150
Total Fat 4g
Saturated Fat 0g
Cholesterol 0mg
Sodium 140mg
Carbs 25g
Fiber 1g
Sugar 12g
Protein 2g

Seven cookies? Now that's a realistic serving size I can live with. I'll tell you though, it was tough not eating the entire bag (this is why I take my seven out of the bag and put the bag away). They have the perfect crunch and are made with organic whole wheat flour (that's the first ingredient), organic molasses, and organic ginger. These ginger snaps are so unbelievably tasty, with real spicy ginger flavor. I think I'm in love.

Of course these aren't as healthy as a cup of broccoli, but I'd still feel good snacking on these. Plus the ginger can soothe a tummy ache, so they're a perfect treat for after dinner. I definitely recommend giving them a try.

seven cookies is really generous, but i'd rather just buy one large cookie from the whole foods bakery or something once in a while instead. i think if i had a bag of those cookies around, they would be gone in a day or two. it would be way too easy for me to take a couple every time i passed by them, and try to justify it because they are relatively low in calories.
