Caveman cookies are a company making several varieties of all natural, gluten free cookies that fit with Paleo diet principles. I don’t personally follow this type of nutritional regimen, but I do like the short ingredient lists, great packaging design, and I’m always up for trying cookies.
A pack of 12 cookies goes for around $12. That struck me as a little steep given that each cookie is only 1/2 an oz, and looks like something that could be whipped up by your favorite crunchy granola gal pal in an afternoon. Still, I recognize they’re a smaller company using quality ingredients which come at a cost.
Despite the smaller size, they were relatively filling. The indiviual wrapping is needed to keep the cookies from sticking together, and it makes it easier to finish the package gradually, rather than feasting in true caveman fashion.
These were the tropical variety, and for a tropical flavor, I’d say they nailed it. They were sticky and sweet (very sweet) from the honey, while the almond meal, coconut shreds, and macadamia bits gave a dense and chewy homemade-health bar texture.
I would definitely try the other varieties, especially if I could find them locally. Given the price, I think the online purchase would be more appealing to the paleo crowd, but if you’re just a fan of smaller companies using quality ingredients these are worth a shot.
and in case any of you we’re planning on making that joke about Rodzilla eating Caveman cookies, I hope you know that stuff about caveman eating dinosaurs is nonsense.
I’ve known this one for years and he’s never tried to eat me.
