A traditional cookie with a subtle flavour. Orange flavored cookies. Swedish recipe. Traditionally, Thins are served with tea or coffee, a light in-between meal snacks, to complement ice cream and desserts. These ingredients have been carefully selected to faithfully match those used at our Swedish bakery. Product of Canada.
I have been a fan of Anna’s cookies for years and the ginger have long been my favorites, so when I saw this price I jumped. Too fast. The shipment arrived in about 10 days (awfully slow for such a huge company, IMO) – cookies appeared to be well-packed in their own little case. However we opened them to find that each and every box, of twelve, contained cookie crumbles. Not one single cookie in shipment arrived unscathed; OK, I guess, to crumble on ice cream, etc. – but definitely not what we’d wanted. Returning all 12 today; we’ll see how Amazon handles that.

Be careful what you order along with these cookies. We made the mistake of getting a 5 pound bag of Gummi Bears at the same time. They apparently fought the whole way to our house, and the Gummi Bears won! They don’t call them “thins” for nothing you know. The packing job was not the best, and many of the thins had turned into crumbs. Time for a chocolate pie crust I guess.
I was very diappointed to find there were trans fats in these cookies.
Ginger is one of my favorite flavors – however not trans fats.
I would not buy them again until the trans fats are removed.

In the market for some healthy snack choices, I picked up a box of these cookies at my local IKEA store. What a wonderfully delicious treat for barely any calories! Plus, a serving is a sizeable 6 cookies, so you can munch on these and feel satisfied. At only 133 calories, and 5.2 grams of fat (only 1 gram saturated fat), this is a perfect choice for those looking to lead healthier lifestyles while still eating great-tasting foods.
I’m looking forward to trying all the available flavors!
Nice cookie. Much like a “tea” cookie. Not too sweet. Very low carb. Highly recommended. Children love them, adults do too.
Blueberry thins are very light and delicious. They are a nice snack and a great way to finish a good meal, that just something extra.

Just like all the other flavors of Anna’s thins. A real winner. Must be diet food, no?
If there good enough for the King of Sweden (as the box indicates)they are good enough for me. They also have other flavors, all good and the price is right.
Anna’s Thins almond cinnamon cookies are delicious, both my husband and I love them, however, they arrived with half of each box in crumbs. Someone should figure out how to pack them. I know they’re light and delicate but there should be some way.
I just received my first grocery order from Amazon. Included in my shipment was a 12 pack of Anna’s Ginger Thins. Mine arrived in excellent condition. Just a few broken cookies. They are quite delicate by design after all. I wouldn’t hesitate to order fine cookies like these from Amazon again. Great cookies. Great price. Tax free. Free shipping. My goodness, what’s not to like? Don’t live in fear, order some cookies. They’re fantastic, and so is Amazon for providing them.
I enjoy this brand of cookies, but this flavor just isn’t very good. It tastes a bit like stale coffee.
I’ve been reading through some amazon reviews concerning groceries, because honestly I was a bit hesitant to order food online. Some of the reviews were really bad, saying that they received open packages blah blah, others were of satisfied customers. I went with the latter and ordered, and I’m glad I did.
My first box of Anna’s thins was purchased at IKEA cause they are swedish cookies, and I fell in love with them. They are the perfect cookie for me. They are so thin (meaning less calories!) and bursting with flavor. The Chocolate mint is my favorite! They use good cocoa and real peppermint oil! Nothing artificial. And the price is perfect at Amazon with free shipping!!! I received the box is perfect condition with all the individual boxes inside ALSO in perfect condition. So I have to say I will be ordeing more groceries from Amazon. I highly recommend this cookie it’s very well balanced, and not icky sweet, just right.
We love these cookies, and have eaten them for years. Sadly, (although double boxed) two thirds or more of the cookies arrived badly broken. Very few cookies were whole, they still taste good, but they would not be suitable for serving.
Yes, some of the thin crackers are broken, but it was obviously not due to Amazon’s shipping– the box containing the crackers was thoroughly wrapped in bubblewrap which was carefully packed with other packing material in a larger box. A few of the crackers at one end of each 5.25 ox box are broken, but they taste just as good as the whole ones. Very nicely gingery. Not, to be frank, as gingery as Trader Joe’s “Triple Ginger Thins”, but TJ’s does not ship, and the closest one to Miami is in Atlanta… so these will do quite nicely. I’ve signed up for a subscription.
My mother suffers from digestion issues and these cookies are one of the few things she can eat to settle her stomach. They have been a Godsend for her. Highly recommend this product!
I LOVE the ginger thins, so thought I would try some of their others. These were the worst of the bunch. (I also tried almond cinnamon & chocolate. These tasted like they had been cooked too long and they tasted burnt. To look at them, they were only a little brown. I LOVE lemon coolers and these didn’t have much of a lemon flavor at all. I would not buy them again.
Love Anna’s cookies but ordered this many did not work. The last six boxes even though they had previously been unopen began to loose the lemon flavor and the last four boxes the cookies became limp. Will still continue to buy Anna’s cookes but not a dozen at a time.
I love these cookies. They are very tasty and a great little snack. They are also very light on the stomach.
It tastes so good and I love it very much!
I agree with the other buyers that this cookie is very easy to break into small pieces.
If the packing can be improved, I will give it 5 stars.
I totally love these cookies , BUT the cookies are all crumbs.The cookies are all broken. Looks like the shipping lads played football withthe packages.
A really high quality cookie with a delicate tang of blueberry and a slight buttery taste. Finely milled flour, so the texture is not coarse. Very, very nice.
This brand is also sold at Ikea as a scandanavian-type cookie and Amazon’s sale price is well below Ikea’s.

After dinner I always tell my wife that I need a ‘light cookie snack’. These are the perfect solution to that request! Simply delicious; very flavorful and highly recommended.
I don’t really understand what the buzz is about for these cookies. They aren’t really minty or sweet which is what I was hoping for. They are kind of bland with a weird initial taste and really aren’t that impressive. I thought dipping them in hot chocolate could improve them but even that didn’t really help.
They aren’t horrible but certainly am not ordering them again.
Thin, chocolate and inviting. Just a hint of mint. In fact these are much like the overpriced cookies sold door to door by female scouts- but they are not enrobed in chocolate. Excellent with a cup of tea. Plus you can have a few without too much guilt.
These ginger thins are great. They are an excellant snack and great with coffee. I recommend these highly and I am sure that when purchased by anyone they will feel as I do “THEY ARE GREAT”
I was craving my absolute favorite GS cookie in October and went on a desperate search for a possible equivalent. What I have discovered in these delicious thin wafers is amazing. Defying all appearances, OMG these are soooooo good. I won’t mourn for GS cookie season any more. These are wonderful “consolation,” and now I’ll buy the GS simply to support GS. I have no trouble believing that these were originally created for a King, as the box says. Don’t be alarmed; they look dry and thin in the classic European manner of visual understatement. They taste MARVELLOUS, but no one steals them because they LOOK — eh — blah. But in the mouth — AAAAAAH — they melt into a perfectly balanced, luxurious mint chocolate that I now crave on an ongoing basis. Not just good, they’re OMG good!
I first found these crisp ginger cookies being sold next to the coffee at my local grocery store. They are really perfect with coffee or tea. Each cookie is delicate and deliciously crunchy. The ginger flavor is mild and there is a hint of cinnamon and cloves. They remind me of cookies I once found in Holland. Although these are made in Canada from a Swedish recipe. These may contain peanuts, milk powder, whey and lactose. So if you have allergies – beware! I will definintely buy these again.

I could munch on these cookies all day. They are thin and VERY flavorable.
There are several different flavors as well. A good buy!

As a kid, I had neighbors from Sweden, and the wife would always make ginger thins for me and her kids every Friday after school. After her husband died and she moved back to Sweden, I never really ate any cookies as good as hers. The ginger snaps that come in the big brown bag taste alright, but just too hard. I found this brand at a Walgreens about a week ago and I’M IN LOVE. I just wish they came in a bigger box~ I haven’t ordered them from this seller yet. The cookies are very fragile. I could almost bet that I would have a box of powder by the time they arrived. For anyone looking to buy this brand, try looking around locally. If not in a typical store (like for example Walgreens, Winn Dixie, any other grocery store), try looking for the nearest European market. There’s one near me where I buy my Lion Bars from, so there may be a different brand of ginger thins there.
One of our local stores carried these for Christmas, then stopped carrying them. We fell in love with the crispy cookie with the ginger bite and so ordered a case. Usually that would mean about half way through we (family of four) would be terribly tired of these, but not so with anna’s ginger thins. They are just so delicious with a wonderful crunch. They are also really good with some nutella spread on them and sandwiched together.
