Byron Bay Cookies review

Here at The Madhouse, we were all very impressed when a box arrived from Byron Bay packed
 with goodies for us to sample. While the grown-ups oohed at the indulgent-looking individually wrapped cookies, the kids aahed at the big Smartie-studded Dotty ! The only question on everyone's lips was, where to begin ?

We'd already tried (and reviewed here) some of the wide range of flavours of Byron Bay Cookies in the past, but we were still very impressed with the exciting flavour combinations. We received :

Sticky Date & Ginger with Walnut
White Chocolate Chunk & Macadamia
Fig & Pecan
Lemon Macadamia Nut Shortbread
Milk Chocolate Chunk
Triple Chocolate Fudge
and a multipack of their limited edition Dark Chocolate & Orange.

All three Madhouse mini-testers immediately went for the Dotty, attracted by the bright colours (and promise of chocolate !) of the Smarties, but the great thing is, the cookies are so big that you can easily break them in half or even into thirds to share out.

The fact that they are individually wrapped - because they are designed to be sold at the tills in coffee shops so that you grab one on your way out with your coffee-to-go - led me to think that they would be the ideal snack to stash in my handbag for the kids to munch on the way home from school (or when they started getting whiney when out and about), but this was actually a bad idea because they are too crumbly and break into tiny pieces in the pack. Obviously, this is a crying shame because they're far too tasty to be wasted so we decided to leave them safely in the biscuit tin and eat them at home instead !

The flavours are natural and fresh and the cookies are perfectly crumbly and indulgent so if you want something special for your tea break, they're absolutely ideal. Byron Bay also use locally sourced ingredients and free range eggs in their recipes.

In fact, I only have one gripe and that is that the Dark Chocolate & Orange recipe is a limited edition for the winter because they are so lovely, I'd like to eat them all year long !
