Medifast Chocolate Chip Soft Bake Cookie Review by Lori

Meet my friend Lori, she is awesome!  


I asked her to write a guest review of the Medifast Chocolate Chip Soft Bake Cookie!


I got my first box of Medifast chocolate chip cookies today! I was very happy to see that they also enclosed a free cookie sample! WIN!

The box is typical for a Medifast product, all the instructions on the side and nutritional information on the back. And my favorite, the big fat logo "Made in the USA"! I love buying American made products!


I mixed the cookie with water according to the directions.... 2 TBSP. But, I didn't feel that was going to be enough, as half of the mix was still dry. I added another tablespoon. This mix is suppose to stay sticky and thick. The box says to microwave for 1 minute and 15 seconds, I followed that exactly. Then let the cookie sit for a couple of minutes to cool. My first thought was "wow, this smells really good!" I "pooped" the cookie out of the container and noticed it was a little too crispy. Maybe 1 minute would be long enough in my microwave. The texture was pretty good! The cookie could have been a little sweeter, maybe a packet of Splenda would liven it up a bit! I didn't taste or even really notice that it had chocolate chips. :( I could learn to love these in time.  



Overall I would give it an 8 out 10.
