Byron Bay Cookies Review

I am very much a tea and biscuit sort of person, and there really isn't anything nicer than a hot drink and a delicious cookie.

So when I was asked if I'd like to review a sample of cookie flavours from the international best selling cookie company Byron Bay,  I jumped at the chance, and was delighted to receive this amazing selection.

These individually packed cookies are definitely luxury biscuits, you can instantly tell they are top quality cookies, the flavours are mouthwatering to read through and each and everyone lived up to my expectations.

The Byron Bay range includes plenty of variety and all cookies in the range have been approved by the Vegetarian Society. Byron Bay are conscious of the quality of ingredients they use ensuring the best possibly taste and texture and it really comes across in each and every cookie.

The Cookies we were sent to sample included  the instantly popular Dotty Cookie, with the attractive colourful packaging  it was these cheerful cookies which my children reached for first.

The other flavours range from traditional Triple Choc Fudge to Sticky Date Ginger and Walnut and the unusual but delicious Fig and Pecan, all  of which have their own distinguished but delightful tastes.

Each cookie had a homemade quality with the perfect blend and  mix of chunky flavoured bites throughout, the way that I always wish my home made cookies to be.

Another firm favourite of ours was the Strawberry and Clotted cream, which is available in a Gluten Free variety, and is a very English flavour made to celebrate the UK bake house, as for the past few years Byron Bay have been producing their cookies in Europe making the carbon footprint smaller as the ingredients are all sourced locally.

If you would like to get your hands on these fantastic cookies then look out for them in all good independent cafe, coffee shops and health food stores priced around £1 to £1.50 each, and if that isn't good enough Byron Bay also have a range of Gluten Free mini Cookie bites which can be found in the larger Sainsburys stores  - bite sized and perfected for lunch boxes but still full of the same great quality and flavours.

You can also see more information on the cookies on the Byron Bay website, and catch up with them on Facebook and Twitter

But if you are desperate to get your hands on a selection box to try for yourself, I have a fantastic competition coming very soon, for my blog readers where you can get your hands on your very only selection box, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

Our final thought, after much hard taste testing is : these really are yummy!
