Delicious and Nutritious Cookies: WhoNu? {Review & Walmart Gift Card Giveaway - 2 winners!}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Stacy and Crystal K!}

Going into motherhood, I knew that there would be some aspects that were harder than others.

Things like sending them off for their first day of school, watching them pull out of the driveway after getting a license or saying goodbye after dropping them off at college will be among the most difficult, I'm sure.

However, there have been little things that have been hard as well that I wouldn't have thought of before becoming a parent. Stuff like encouraging them to not sing while eating, convincing them to put on shoes before leaving the house, and having to say no all the time when they continually ask for sweets (particularly when I'd like to eat them myself).

Fortunately, that last one has been made much easier now that we've all been able to happily indulge in some extra cookies thanks to the innovative minds behind WhoNu?

By taking the delicious flavor and appeal of cookies and packing them with 20 essential vitamins and minerals and 3 grams of dietary fiber, WhoNu? cookies look and taste like the family favorites that we all have... but actually have the nutritional value that the others do not.

That's right, the nutritional value of cookies. Why haven't these been around before now? Of course these aren't made to replace eating your fruits and vegetables, but we all need a cookie now and then... so why not have one that provides 20% or more of the daily allowance of vitamin C, calcium, vitamin D, iron, vitamin E, vitamin B12 and vitamin A?

When a large box containing the four varieties of WhoNu? cookies arrived, we were more than ready to dig in!

Available in Chewy Chocolate Chip, Crispy Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Sandwich and Vanilla Sandwich, the hardest part was deciding which one to try first.

Considering that I'm a big fan of traditional chocolate sandwich cookies, I pulled that box out first and removed the resealable (yay! No stale cookies!) package from inside. Peeling back the cover, I found that...

...WhoNu? definitely resembled the name brand cookies. But more than the look, it would all come down to the taste, of course. No matter how much of a "healthy cookie" they might be, if my kids and I didn't like the taste then it wouldn't really matter, now would it?

Whether eaten in bites or taken apart to lick out the filling, WhoNu? are delicious! We tried all four varieties and loved the sweet flavor, great crispiness (except for in the Chewy variety, which were nice and soft), and the overall yumminess of each one.

The only downfall I could think of is that WhoNu? cookies are extremely addicting! Plus, because they have so many vitamins, I kept telling myself that it was okay to have another. After all, a serving of three cookies gives you all of this:

I have never heard of cookies that can provide as much iron as a cup of spinach, that's for sure... but these do AND they're completely scrumptious!

For a delicious, nutritious way to provide a treat for yourself and your family, WhoNu? is an amazing alternative to other indulgent cookies. You can even replace the regular cookies in your dessert recipes with these to add vitamins in more ways than just a snack. I would love to try these Chocolate WhoNu? Sandwich Balls if I hadn't already eaten all of the cookies...

WhoNu? cookies will be in stores nationwide very soon (retailing for around $2.99), so keep an eye out in your cookie aisle!

And, thanks to the generosity of WhoNu?, two people will be able to try these delectable cookies as well as be ready to head to the store to pick up more, because...

Two lucky people will win a $25 Walmart gift card and
four boxes of WhoNu? cookies!
