It is rare that I am disappointed with a Kashi product. The only reason stopping me from trying these out earlier is because of the price factor. These delicious Kashi TLC do not come cheap — retailing over $3.00 a box at most stores. I picked up the Oatmeal Raisin Flax variety when I spotted them on sale at Target for $2.99. I was happy that I finally get to try it out. The picture on from of the box is a really accurate depiction of what the cookie really looks like in terms texture. Visible raisins, whole flax seeds, oats, and walnuts are visible throughout the cookie. The texture isn’t really chewy, more like crumbly. It crumbles easily like a soft home-baked creation. With so many ingredients going on, this is not your standard oatmeal raisin cookie. Besides omega-3, the whole flax seeds added a little bit of a gritty texture to the cookie which I am fine with. I like to chew. Considering the size of the cookie, all the ingredients made it seem like a party mix into a cookie — a delicious cookie. Warm it up in the microwave and it tastes even better. The actual size of the cookie fits on the palm of my hands and is about 1/2 an inch thick and is slightly smaller than the cookie shown on the front in terms of the circumference. The inside packaging is a try with 2 sections, 4 cookies in each section. Foil packaging on the inside to keep the cookies fresh. The front of the box boasts: 600 milligram of Omega-3, 4 grams of fiber, 7 grams of whole grains. Other flavors include Happy Trail Mix and Oatmeal Dark Chocolate. One serving is 130 calories, 2 WW, 5 grams of fat (0.5 gram saturated), no cholesterol, 75 milligram of sodium, 20 gram of carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 8 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein.
