Review: Smart for Life Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

After over a week on the Smart for Life "cookie diet", it's time to do an official review.  Here are the "Oatmeal Raisin Cookies" - they come six to a package, since you're directed to eat six cookies each day (and a protein and veggie dinner).

each of the six cookies on one plate - note the big range in appearance.

So... how do they taste?  Well, they're not horrible but I wouldn't call them good.  I wish there were more raisins - I have had at least three cookies with one only raisin in each of them.  When this is all you're eating until dinner, you cherish each raisin. ;)  Despite the variation in size, they all weigh within 10% of each other (yep, I weighed each of them individually).  There's some spice cake flavor in these - with nutmeg, cinnamon and "natural flavor" listed in the ingredients.  They are a bit dry, and you definitely need to drink a lot of water with them.

I dislike these a little more than I dislike the chocolate chip cookies - but they are working to help me lose weight, so I don't truly despise them yet.
