Product Review ~ Bodacious Food Company Geraldine's All-Natural Cookies

Today I would like to introduce you to the Bodacious Food Company who makes and sells a variety of great tasting snack foods. When you check out their product line up you will find cheese straws, all natural cookies, Jaxn's twiced-baked potato stix and more! Each of these snack lines have a variety of delicious flavors within it.

The generous folks at Bodacious Food Company sent me a large box of snack foods to try out and review for all of you. I will be breaking down these reviews into several smaller reviews so that I can adequately write about each one.

My Review: I received three 6 ounce packages of all-natural cookies for my product review. I received the Geraldine's Pecan Cini-minis, Geraldine's Key Lime Cookies and Geraldine's Italian Wedding Cookies for the review. Geraldine's uses only the finest all natural ingredients to make their delicious cookies. They never use high fructose corn syrup or anything artificial.

Geraldine's Italian Wedding Cookies: I have never heard of Italian Wedding Cookies until I received this package. These cookies have a hint of Amaretto and Toasty Almonds so if you love those 2 ingredients...you should love these cookies. I love just about any cookie that has been rolled into confectioner's sugar and this petite sized cookie is no exception. It has the perfect blend of Amaretto along with the Toasty Almonds to make a delicious cookie. I think these are great served at a fancy luncheon, tea party or enjoy with your coffee, hot tea or cocoa. They tasted fresh and were sweet but not overly sweet. I see why they call these "Wedding" cookies as they would be perfect served at a wedding on a beautiful serving tray.

Geraldine's Pecan Cini-minis: These mini cookies have the perfect blend of cinnamon and pecans all rolled into one bite sized cookie! Now...don't let the size fool ya...these cookies pack a powerful punch of deliciousness! If cinnamon buns could become a tasty cookie...these cookies would be it! I love that they are rolled into confectioner's sugar which gives them a sweet taste but not overly sweet. We have been enjoying these with our morning hot coffee and hot cocoa and find them to be a perfect pairing with a hot beverage. These make a great snack, after dinner treat or they would be great served at a party as an appetizer.

Geraldine's Key Lime Cookies: These mini cookies have the perfect key lime tropical taste that you would expect from a key lime flavored foodie product. Again, these are ball shaped cookies that have been rolled in confectioner's sugar. These little petite cookies are tropical goodness for sure! Out of the 3 varieties that we tried...these were my favorites although my hubby preferred the Pecan Cini-minis. I didn't think they were overly sweet but hubby said they were good but he could only eat one at a time as they were too sweet for him. Boohoo on him as I thought they were fabulous! I could see snacking on these with a margarita in the summertime or with a big glass of iced tea. These would be great served at all of your summer parties and events.

Overall Impression: We enjoyed sampling all 3 of the Geraldine's cookies and we both have different favorites (see above). I love that the cookies are made with all-natural ingredients and I love the size of them (petites) as they are perfect for single servings and pretty enough to be placed on a tray and served at a party or special event. Would I ever purchase these Geraldine's cookies? You bet I would and I plan on doing so!

Serving Size: 6 cookies equals 150 calories with approximately 60-70 calories of fat per serving. I think that is pretty good!

I would personally like to thank Bodacious Snack Foods for sending me the cookies to review. I think they are delicious, tasted fresh and my family enjoyed sampling them.
