So, today's review is of Trader Joe's Ginger Cats Cookies (for people). They are labeled as "lowfat" with no artificial flavors or preservatives.
A 16-ounce tub of cookies will set you back $2.79.
A mom's (my) take: Well, these are certainly cute, especially if you're a cat person like I am. I enjoyed the flavor of these cookies quite a bit...they have a very strong ginger and spice taste...and a little heat. The ingredients list on the package lists "ground red pepper;" I love the spice, but I wonder if little ones would. The texture is what I wasn't crazy about. They were so crunchy, I felt like they were over-baked. I was expecting, and would prefer, that Teddy Graham-type texture here.
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars
A teenager's (kiddo's) take: Of course, I love the cats (having two myself), and the taste is that of a home-baked, authentic gingerbread cookie. I italicized ginger because it is spicy. Really spicy. It does take a minute to deliver the kick, so you have a bit to enjoy the buttery, well-baked taste.
