Why I bought it: I was on a vegan, gluten-free kick for the evening.

Tasting notes: This has a great mouthfeel (ie. the texture is just right), but to call it a cookie seems like a misrepresentation of sorts. Even though it contains agave nectar, which is perfectly sweet, it's hard to detect it at all. In fact, this tastes a lot better if you happen to have a squeeze bottle of the nectar and drizzle it over the top. This is more like a coconut scone than a cookie.

Would I buy it again? No, but I have a feeling Grindstone's gluten-free bread, which is also baked in a wood-fired oven, is probably pretty good.

What other blogs/sites thought of it: Uh-oh, one Yelper declared, "Worst. Cookie. Ever."
