I have to be honest. I prefer my cookies soft and chewy. I don’t love hard, crunchy cookies like biscotti. I do enjoy the combination of lemon and blueberry though (especially in muffins!), so I decided to give these Thinaddictives cookies from Costco a chance. Are the real fruit flavors enough to make up for their dry, crunchy texture?
Some similar snack items from Costco are the Meiji Hello Panda Cookies, Loacker Minis, Heavenly Hunks Minis, Le Bon Patisserie Original Stroopwafels, Verka Cake Rusks, Kirkland Signature Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies, Schwartz Brothers Bakery Organic Everything Bagel Chips and the Lotus Biscoff Cookies.

You can find these cookies in the aisle with the granola, other boxed cookies, syrup and jam. The item number is 1466728.
The cookies remind me a lot of biscotti, which isn’t a big surprise because Nonni’s, the company that makes them, makes biscotti too. Like biscotti, these cookies are very hard and crunchy. The fact that they’re thin makes them easier to eat, but they can still be a bit hard on your teeth and mouth! The blueberries add some chewiness too.
The flavor isn’t bad. The blueberries are my favorite part for sure. The lemon flavor is decent too. The cookies are quite sweet, but not overly so. The flavors remind me of lemon blueberry muffins, but there’s an odd taste in there that I can’t quite put my finger on.
I’ll be honest – I don’t like biscotti or super crunchy cookies like these Thinaddictives. Putting that aside, I think they’re just okay. If you like biscotti and lemon blueberry muffins, you might enjoy them.
The box contains 30 packs of three cookies and costs $11.99 Canadian, which doesn’t seem like very much for 90 cookies but they’re very, very thin!
Each pack of Thinaddictives contains three thin cookies, the packs are convenient to pop in your purse, lunch bag or glove box. They work well as a morning or afternoon snack with coffee or dessert.
The best-before date listed on the box is 19 months from when I bought it and they’re made in Canada.
One pack contains 100 calories, two grams of fat, 17 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, eight grams of sugar, three grams of protein and 65 milligrams of sodium. It’s a low calorie, low fat and pretty low-sugar snack but it’s also not a very big portion size at all!
The ingredients list is actually pretty short and sweet without a ton of preservatives or chemicals. The Thinaddictives contain wheat, eggs and almonds and may contain pistachio, barley, soy and milk.
Give them a try!
My mom likes these because they’re not very sweet and enjoys the portion control that the individual packets of three cookies the packets provide! I personally find them a little plain for my liking and would rather have a packet or chocolate chip cookies.
What do you think of the Thinaddictives if you’ve tried them?
