Jack and I are both suckers for Key Lime...and I guess you know how we feel about cookies. A 12-ounce package of cookies costs 3.99.

A mom's (my) take: These remind me of mini wedding cookies...a crumbly cookie with a nice coating of powdered sugar. The flavor is a very tart Key Lime. I wanted to love these guys, but I have to tell you...they smelled weird. I realize this makes me sound like a crazy person, but I couldn't get over it. The cookies are good, though...
Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars

A teenager's (Jack's) take: These small cookies pack a big punch of flavor. That is, the key lime flavor is very tangy and prominent. Not too much, but it is definitely strong. The buttery cookie inside isn't too crunchy, or too soft, and provides a very pleasant aftertaste. I really enjoy these little guys, and aside from tea, they could definitely work by themselves as a sugary, tangy pick-me-up.
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

  2. I bought these last week - thought I'd love them - but I didn't either! There's part of the cookie that gets stuck in your teeth and is really salty - after the rest of the cookie is gone. I don't know if I got a bad batch - but I'm returning them.

  3. I loved them, too. Crushed them up and used as a crust for a chocolate cream pie. Sadly, they are gone at my store. Done until 2016. I've marked my calendar to look for them again.
