Barbara's Hand-Made Cookie Pies are not ALL Natural

Who doesn't love getting a cookie pie in the mail? Well, I don't when I feel I have been mislead.

We were sent a Barbara's Hand-Made Cookie Pies Gourmet Oreo Creme Cookie Pie. The first clue this pie was not all natural was the word Oreo! These pies were promoted to us as all natural because they are "made with 100% natural butter cookie crust". Well is the crust all natural or is it just the butter? Clearly the toppings are not.

Our assortment wouldn't be complete without a version of OREO TM which reigns supreme as the best-selling cookie in the world. The OREO TM , tradition is carried forward with our Cookie Pie version. Appetizing sweet white crème sits atop a home-made butter cookie crust and is then garnished with genuine OREO TM pieces for an irresistible classic treat. Taste it and you'll know why OREO has a legacy all it's own. If you're looking for a gift, this variety can't miss. It truly is the best of the best and beloved by everyone. We use no added preservatives and only kitchen-fresh ingredients in our recipes. Each Cookie Pie is made fresh, then shipped to you. For maximum freshness and quality, they can stay at room temperature for approximately 7 days. If you don't plan on eating your cookies right away, we recommend refrigeration (for up to 14 days) or freezing them (for up to 3 months). Wholesome and pure ingredients go into each one of Barbara's Cookie Pies such as unbleached and unbromated flour, pure creamery butter (not oil), pure chocolate (not 'coatings'), whole eggs, pure vanilla extract (not artificial flavors,) premium preserves, fresh nuts and so on - overall the best quality ingredients we can find. As a small business, it can be challenging to obtain these products cost effectively, but after numerous kitchen tests and tastings, we taste the difference and hope you will too.
Amongst the scary ingredients are high fructose corn syrup and vanillin.
 

I was surprised that a serving is only 260 calories; that's the same as some granola or nut bars.

disclosure: The products described above were sent to us as free samples. Prior assurances as to the nature of the reviews, whether positive or negative, were not given. No financial payments were accepted in exchange for the reviews. The reviews reflect our honest, authentic opinions.
