Alternative Baking Company Colossal Chocolate Chip Cookie

You would think that after doing this blog for 3 years now, there would be a post or two about Alternative Backing Company (or as I lovingly refer to them as, ABC) Cookies. Shockingly, there isn't. I really don't know why, because ABC Cookies were there at the beginning of my Veganism. You can always count on them to be at mainstream places like coffee shops or the airport. They've definitely saved my life a time or two! It's hard to pin down a favorite flavor, I mean off the top of my head I would say Simply Vanilla Bean (which is unfortunately discontinued at this time) but I also love Phenomenal Pumpkin Spice, Luscious Lemon Poppyseed, Peanut Butter Persuasion and of course old school Colossal Chocolate Chip.

Colossal Chocolate Chip is about as classic as you can get. A big ole' honking chocolate chip cookie! I think the secret to ABC's success is that their cookies don't taste healthy or, god forbid, "Vegan." For example, if my Dad were to have a bite of this cookie, he would be none the wiser to it's Veganness. It's just a good-ass cookie that everyone can enjoy. It's not low-fat or particularity healthy, but it's cholesterol free, you can pronounce all of the ingredients and it has zero trans fats, which is more than you can say for a typical chocolate chip cookie. If someone reads this and has yet to eat an ABC Cookie (doubtful, but possible) please make your way to the nearest ABC Cookie retailer and buy the whole collection. And don't forget to yell at me because you now have a cookie belly.

  1. These were my midterm staple in college. Pumpkin, lemon poppyseed, and the chocolate chocolate chip are my top 3. They also have a line of gluten free cookies that I haven't had the chance to try yet, but I am sure they are also great.

  2. I'm with you. ABC's were my first vegan cookie addiction, and I still give in to weakness if I steer towards them at the store. If they came up with a toffee or caramel flavor I'd be in deep trouble. ;)
