Byron Bay Cookies Review and Giveaway (closed)



I was delighted to receive some wonderful cookies from Byron Bay Cookies this week.  


For those of you not familiar with Byron Bay Cookies, they are a company originating from Australia baking some of the most amazing cookies, selling in over 40 countries.  I know what you're thinking a cookie all the way from Australia, wow that's some food miles.  But that's where Byron Bay Cookies are different. In 2007, wanting to keep with the company’s green credentials and use as many locally sourced ingredients as possible, Byron Bay Cookie Company signed a deal with one of the UK's most prestigious bakeries to produce the cookies in the United Kingdom.  Many of the ingredients have been sourced from within 50 miles of the UK bakehouse!

The move to being baked in the UK meant that they could be certified by The Vegetarian Society as they now contained only free range eggs. Byron Bay Cookie Company have also searched all over Europe to find a candy covered chocolate bean that is free from cochineal and gelatine which has resulted in the ever popular Dotty™ and Clowning Around cookies being able to gain Vegetarian Society approval. The gluten free range has also been approved by Coeliac UK and displays the Cross Grain Symbol.





Having tried a number of the cookies one of my favourites was the Lemon and Macadamia Nut Shortbread Cookie it had a real zingy flavour.  There is no stinting on the size of the cookie either, they make the perfect mid morning or afternoon snack with a cup of tea. Which is great for when you're at work and have a case of the munchies like I did this week.  Watch out for their trademark  Dotty™ cookie, my niece made a beeline for this one as soon as she spotted it.  There are so many different varieties to choose from and I still have one or two more to try, there's time yet for my favourite to change!


There are 14 of the individual cookies to choose from, including 5 from their Gluten-Free range.  Every six months they release a seasonally inspired cookie, at the moment there is the Winter limited edition Dark Choc Orange Cookie.  


Byron Bay Cookies can be found in selected Sainsbury's and all good cafes, coffee shops and selected health food stores.  You can find out more on their website http://www.byronbaycookies.co.uk/ Like them on Facebook www.facebook.com/ByronBayCookies or follow them on Twitter www.twitter.com/ByronBayCookie

I was sent a box of cookies from Byron Bay Cookies free of charge for the purposes of this review, the opinions expressed above are my own.
