While we’re super proud of our scrumptious cookies, there’s only so much patting ourselves on the back we can do before our hands get tired and we start looking a little silly. Fortunately, some kind folks have started patting our backs for us! Phew. We’re thrilled to share some pretty sweet awards we’ve been honored with recently.
We were named one of 2018’s Best Snacks in the November edition of Health Magazine! The selective list is comprised of delicious snacks that “satisfy — while still keeping you in the healthy-eating zone.”
We’re so happy to see some of our other favorite snacks on the list too, like Hippeas and Simple Mills Gluten-free crackers. Although we’ve cleary got a major sweet tooth, we sure do appreciate a salty crunchy treat with clean ingredients. And we’re so glad Health magazine noted that our cookies “deliver nutrition and sweet satisfaction.” We aim to satisfy.
KeHE Distributors is a natural and organic foods distributor founded in 1953, and at their recent show in Salt Lake City, more than 2,200 industry professionals were in attendance to choose the best new natural and products on the market.
There were 10 companies selected for the “Best of New Products Awards,” and Maxine’s was very honored to be awarded “Best of Snack Foods.” Hurrah!
In order to select the Healthy Food Awards, the editors over at SELF magazine taste-tested more than 250 healthy foods you can find at the grocery store. (Um, where can we sign up for this job?) They write, “We looked for foods with minimally processed ingredients and considered factors like sugar, protein, calories, saturated fat, and sodium. But above all, the food had to be tasty and satisfying.” We couldn’t agree more their priorities and are so excited to have been named twice on their list of “13 Healthy Sweets You Can Get as the Supermarket”!
Our Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies were awarded “Best Oatmeal Cookie,” with the generous team at SELF noting, “As far as oatmeal raisin cookies go, these are the best of the bunch. They have a soft, delicate texture that our editors were obsessed with and just the right amount of raisins per bite. Each cookie also has 2 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber.”
And if that wasn’t enough to make us blush, our Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies snagged the “Best Chocolate Chip Cookie” crown. Huzzah! SELF goes on to say, “One of our editors liked these cookies because they didn’t feel like they were sacrificing flavor for health… The whole almonds in these are also a draw, because they add a crunch and flavor that pairs perfectly with the chocolate.”
We feel you, SELF. We really do. Sacrificing flavor is never an option at Maxine’s Heavenly. It’s always “and” and not “or” in our kitchen. And we look forward to continuing to bake you delicious treats that are both mouthwateringly irresistible and made from clean, wholesome ingredients you can feel good about.
Who says you can’t have your cookie and eat it too?
