Review: Smart for Life Chocolate Chip Cookies

After eating seven packages of these on the Smart for Life "cookie diet", let's do the official review.  Here are the "Chocolate Chip Cookies" - they come six to a package, since you're directed to eat six cookies each day (and a protein and veggie dinner).

They're okay, at best.  I do like these more than the Oatmeal Raisin Cookies but it's a far stretch to call these cookies. They're definitely more like mini-muffins, but very dense.  They're somewhat dry - not as dry as the Oatmeal Raisin variety, but definitely drier than most cookies or muffins.  The white icing is okay enough.  The highlight of these are the chocolate chips - but some cookies have only one and some have six!  If they put the chips on top to help make sure they were distributed equally, it would be so much better.  

I am losing weight while eating these, but full disclosure - I'm also having some gastrointestinal issues too.  Ugh.
