Delicious and energizing
I like to eat one of these after lunch...it gives me energy to finish out my workday. They are only mildly sweet but for me this was a plus.

Chocolate Snakaroon vs. Emmy's Drk Cocao Macaroon
I like doing side-by-side taste tests, and I LOVE macaroons, so when I saw that both Emmy's and Laughing Giraffe Organics had a chocolate macaroon offering, I thought, WHY NOT? Here are my findings....
Both cookies have a nice chew and are not overly sweet.
Emmy's macaroon is flatter in shape and slightly smaller than the Laughing Giraffe's (LG) version. Three macaroons come in a pack, and mine weighted exactly 2 oz total (as stated on the package). They are denser than the LG cookie and have slightly more chew, but little, if any, chocolate or coconut flavor. They are also a little dry and slightly bitter with a distinct "box" taste (although they came in a plastic bag). They cost 97 cents each, but even if they were free I honestly can't recommend them at all. I ate two of them for the comparison and gave the last one to my chickens.
The LG macaroons were better, and I will eventually eat them all rather than make them chicken food (they go well with coffee and tea), but I stopped short of recommending them because they have only a mild chocolate and coconut flavor and they are a little dry. Eight macaroons come in a bag and all together they weighed 6.5 oz,, which is half an ounce more than the bag indicated. I like the generosity, particularly since these cookies pencil out at 93 cents each. To buy them again, I'd need a moister cookie and either more chocolate and/or coconut flavor. However, if you like a mildly sweet, slightly dry cookie with a touch of chocolate and coconut flavor to go with your coffee, you might like the Laughing Giraffe Chocolate Snakaroons.
