Oh, I'm so happy!!! I tried the Midel oreo-like cookies, and I didn't like them at all. Thought they had a funky aftertaste. I have been craving junk food like mad (guess it's from eating so well the past few months) and I couldn't stop thinking how much I miss Oreo's. I'll have to get some ASAP, thanks!

Some day, SOME DAY, I hope to see a faux-reo (fake Oreo), a pie crust mix, a killer baking mix that everyone on this forum raves about that doesn't have potato. I know that's asking a lot.

We finally got Trader Joes in town (YEAH!!!) and nearly every Gluten Free baked good there had potato in it. I looked at the banana waffles with longing...

So for now I will stick with the Glutano (or Glutino? Who knows) faux-reos and my Manna from Anna bread held firmly in my greedy little hands... for they are all I have.

Tell me I'm not the only one here who thinks that the fact chocolate is *not* banned is evidence of God! If chocolate was out of my life, I'd probably say just forget the whole diet and eat myself to death! I will have to try these cookies, been a few weeks since I was at the health food store and I haven't seen them yet. However, I hope Kinnikinnick has improved their packaging again, because the last bags of double chocolate almond cookies I bought were really stale. The bag had a seal on the fold, but the lining wasn't sealed shut on the inside like they used to be. These gluten-free cookies make life bearable for me, I totally had to cry when the cookies tasted like dried out crap.

YUUUUMMMMMMMMYYYYYYY! My K-Toos just came and I ate 4 for breakfast before remembering that I'm the mom and I shouldn't do that. I haven't had anything even resembling an oreo for 10 years, so I am on cloud nine. I can hardly wait to give a couple packages to the little girl at school who has Celiac. (I'm a teacher.) I'm going to wrap them up in Christmas paper and deliver them.

But a side note on Kinnikinnick bread - I ordered 2 loaves of that too, and no offense to all of you who love this company, but the bread isn't good at all. I'll take Ener-G Brown Rice Loaf over this any day.

Well, which bread did you order????? We like the "white sandwich bread". Have you tried the donuts, pizza crust, or bagels. I've got to tell you, the chocolate chip muffins are devine.

I got the "Robin's" brown rice bread. I'm allergic to eggs, soy and dairy, so that eliminated almost all the Kinnikinnick products. I've never liked white bread, so I don't know if I could stomach gluten-free white bread. The K-Too's only have soy lecithin, which I can handle. Believe me, I'm thrilled with these, so the whole order wasn't a total loss.
