We received some vegan treats from Liz Lovely in the mail recently. Very exciting! Check out their About Us section - I don't think there's a better mission statement out there. I love their story. I think everyone dreams about quitting their jobs and moving to Vermont and starting a cookie business. Well. I do.
We got three kinds of cookie: Dark Chocolate Pretzels, Ginger Snapdragons and Lovely Oh's.
My favorite out of the bunch were the Lovely Oh's: these are a chocolate dipped mint Newmans O's style cookie. They were delicious!
The dark chocolate covered pretzels were also tasty. The pretzels were pretty thin though so it was mostly chocolate with a hint of pretzel.
The Ginger Snapdragons were probably my least favorite. I love ginger but the flavor was pretty intense in these cookies. String Bean loved em though so it really just depends on how gingery you like your cookie. They did have a really nice consistency though and even had candied ginger on top!
These are the kind of sweets to eat very slowly. They're rich, dark and intense with flavor. Liz Lovely is not for inhaling but s a v o r i n g.
If you do the Valentine's Day thing, then Happy Valentine's Day. These would be great gifts for your crush...
