Enjoy Life Snickerdoodles

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the gluten-free diet, so I'm not real sure what's good and what's not. I've seen quite a few of you talk about the Enjoy Life line. For some reason in my city the Wild Oats doesn't carry much of a selection of that line, but last night I was able to find the largest selection yet (I had to go to 3 different Wild Oats). This one carried Enjoy Life cookies. I tried the chocolate chip (not so great), but the snickerdoodles were pretty yummy !! :D

Just thought I'd share if anybody else was curious about them.

I actually like all of them but the gingersnap, although my husband liked those.

They have snickerdoodles, chocolate chip, double chocolate brownie, no-oat oatmeal and the gingersnap.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I always liked the Gingerbread Spice and the Snickerdoodles best :)

Me too! But beware, they go bad really fast if you don't eat them quickly! Mine got really hard in 2 days (after opening the plastic) but I did have them in a sandwich baggie....when I mentioned it to someone at Whole Foods, they said it was because there are no preservatives.


EnteroLab test positive for gluten intolerence and 2 gluten intolerence and celiac genes

DQ2 and DQ3 sub type DQ7 in December 2005

Gluten-free since Enterolab test, December 2, 2005.

Lame Advertisement Test positive for gluten intolerence in Sept 2005.

THEN found out that my fathers mother had nontropical sprue, she passed away at 40 from (stomach) cancer, had holes in her intestines when they caught it. I had no idea....

The snickerdoodles are good, but the "no-oats" oatmeal are NASTY! I took them to work to share, and people agreed they were something you would eat when you wanted to punish your mouth....

I never liked bread anyway.....

I really liked the gingerbread ones too. The snickerdoodles are good, but I didn't much care for the chocolate chip. Have you tried their snack bars?? My kids and I LOVE the carmel apple bars. They are quite tasty!

Not a problem at my house :D I go through about 4 boxes a week :o

The chocolate chip don't settle well for me (perhaps I'm spoiled by working in a chocolate store?), and the fake oat chip thingys in the other bars feel harsh to me so I tend to avoid them unless there is an emergency (like having already bought out all of the stores snickerdoodles). The gingersnaps are nice too.
