Is it the taste, the texture or the nutritional values, what made us like Kikibix 100% Whole Grain Gur Chana Cookies?

We appreciate the detailed and clean ingredient list.
The nutritional values per two of these whole grain cookies are :Energy : 41.8 kcal, Fat : 2.2 gms, Carbs : 4.84 gms, Protein : 1.21 gm, and Total Sugars : 1.65 gm.

Aroma + Appearance
These are round shaped cookies with a dark brown hue. The white sesame seeds on top seem well-toasted. The aroma of jaggery and saunf is dominant in these cookies. It feels reminiscent of the winters in Delhi.
Taste + Texture
Because of the numerous blends of flour used, the overall mouthfeel of these cookies is grainy. The sweetness is perfectly balanced, and there is no overpowering jaggery flavor. Infact the caramelly sweetness in combination with the delicateness of saunf is pleasing.
Texture-wise, it is crunchy but it does have a slightly dense bite. The noticeable crunch from the sesame and almonds enhances the texture even further.
When compared to regular maida cookies, these were harder to bite. This is not a con, but rather an observation we came across while reviewing.

- Good sources of fat and sugar used.
- Well balanced sweetness.
- Fresh taste. Absence of stale or rancid taste.
