I was impressed with Jovial’s einkorn pasta (had it a few times) and thought I would give their cookies a try. I don’t normally purchase processed foods, but thought I’d give it a go. Well, I hate to be so negative, but these are not worth it. Judging by their description (and price!!!) I expected something far better. Like the first reviewer noted, they aren’t too sweet, which is a nice change from your typical boxed cookie. That’s about the end of the positives for me. The cinnamon and ginger flavor is very bland (really rather stale-tasting, and I’ve purchased these twice now, just to be sure I didn’t get a bad/old batch). Also the texture is terrible. I’ve had imported cookies before and they were better than this. They are dry and almost tough…they remind me of why so many people don’t use whole wheat for cookies. To be fair, I have baked with einkorn myself (you can buy it online…Jovial sells it, but so do other places, the best price I’ve found is from the website with the grain’s name itself). Einkorn is a lovely flour to bake with and tends to yield a light and tender product, so I really don’t know what they are doing to these cookies. If you dunk them it helps, but I sitll won’t purchase them again. Disappointing…
For those of you who enjoy a true Italian desert with your coffee or tea, jovial cookies are amazing. Not sickening sweet like American cookies, but a cookie rich in flavor
Jovial Ginger Spiece cookies are a joy
For those like their cookies to be not too sweet, and that has a rich texture and substance. I don’t know exactly what this einkorn flour is, but it does give Jovial cookies a “malted milk” taste that becomes so addictive that you won’t be able to stop with a few. The perfect cookies to have with coffee or tea.
