Pepperidge Farm cookies always taste great either by themselves or as dessert after a good meal. In the ever-growing line of Pepperidge Farm products are oatmeal cookies. These Pepperidge Farm oatmeal cookies provide a sweet and healthy sounding new dimension to the family of chocolate and sugar-themed cookies that can be found at your nearest grocer. But are these new Pepperidge Farm oatmeal cookies tasty? Are they really even healthy?
Pepperidge Farm Oatmeal Cookies: Flavor & Quality
Pepperidge Farm oatmeal cookies, measuring right around 3 inches in diameter and about 1/3 of an inch thick, are a crispy type of oatmeal cookie. Cinnamon has a heavy influence in the flavor of these oatmeal cookies, and the overall product reminds me very much of Pepperidge Farm’s Snickerdoodle cookies – cinnamon and sugar coming together for a sweet, warm flavor.
In case you’re wondering Pepperidge Farm oatmeal cookies don’t contain any raisins or any perceptible flavor of nut – both common ingredients in many oatmeal-based cookies. While you may enjoy raisins and nuts in your oatmeal cookies (and believe me, I do, too!) it’s nice to have a smoother-textured oatmeal cookie. I would imagine this would be a draw for children, too, who generally seem to like things that don’t contain any ‘lumps.’
For a suggested price of $3.39, these Pepperidge Farm oatmeal cookies aren’t a bad deal at all. 15 cookies (5 servings) come to a pack. These definitely make great complements for milk, tea, or coffee, and – as any Pepperidge Farm connoisseur would submit – these cookies live up to the promise of flavor and quality that you’ll find in any of the company’s products.
Some oatmeal cookies are purely diet driven. Others are made strictly for taste. While oatmeal cookies, overall, tend to be a little healthier for you than other types of cookies, I would suggest you enjoy Pepperidge Farm oatmeal cookies in due moderation. While there are 0 grams of trans fats, there are 2.5 grams of saturated fat in each 3-cookie serving. 22 grams of carbohydrates and 9 grams of sugar may be an issue if you’re having to watch your glucose levels.
