Throwing Away the Cookie
I have been trying to decide whether or not to indulge in this Kashi cookie. Kashi makes good products and this tasty little cookie has oatmeal, dark chocolate and 3g of fiber. Still, 130 calories seemed a lot for one cookie.
Well, my decision has been made for me. Yesterday, I received and e-mail from Kashi explaining that one of the facilities that baked their Oatmeal Dark Chocolate cookies shared a line with products involved with the recent peanut recall. Luckily, the cookie was a sample and Kashi was able to alert me:
...Therefore, we have voluntarily recalled all of our Kashi TLC cookies, including the cookie sent to you. If you still have the cookie, please throw it out just to be safe; we would never want to put our consumers’ health at risk.
I've also been holding on to this Hollyberry cookie that someone shared with me around the holidays. I finally wrote to Hollyberry to ask for nutritional information. I was given the following link:
I clicked on the health holly choices and my cookie didn't make the cut. Hmmmm, maybe it will also be recalled. I'm going to hold on to my Hollyberry cookie for awhile. Maybe I'll conduct an experiment to see if it will be unchanging like a McDonald french fry or a Twinkie.
