YAY ANOTHER REVIEW!!! ...2 months later... I have an awesome e-mail pal, Jamaica. When I was looking into going to baking, I e-mailed a bunch of people and she was BY FAR the MOST helpful and gave me the MOST insight and most insight out of all the tens of people I contacted. Ashamedly, I took this long to review a cookie of hers!! I grabbed the LAST vegan chocolate chip cookie (non-vegan to be reviewed in a couple of weeks!). It was wrapped up in plastic wrap and let me tell you: when I unwrapped this cookie the smell was SO inviting. I'll be honest -- I bought this one day and ate it the next, and the strong smell of freshly baked cookie was still there! The smell was comparable to a cookie I baked in the oven myself. First impression was looking GREAT. Oh, minus the one thing that made me hesitant; it was a pretty flat cookie: I got over it really quickly, though, thanks to the smell and taste. This cookie was delicious. There was something "different" about the taste of this cookie that I could not put my finger on, though. It was evident in the first few bites but I suppose I got used to it after that. Other than that one different taste, this cookie tasted like any other cookie! And I cannot get over the texture: it was super moist and very soft. This is a blurry picture, but it shows the middle of the cookie + the chocolate chunk distribution: ...okay, not a great picture of the texture, but you can make out some of the round pieces that make up the entire cookie, rather than cookie crumbs that stick together and make the cookie tough and hard. This piece is a section of the cookie that had a LOT of chocolate chunks in it, but as you can see the chunks are layered, so you're sure to get at least a couple of pieces of chocolate in every bite.
- Taste: Loved it, and despite that odd flavor, I would still give this a 9
- Crust and center moistness: VERY moist, even the next day. 10
- Value: $1.75 for a large cookie. Quite pricey for a cookie, but it is vegan, and in West LA. 7
- Overall: Definitely a must-try. 9!!

This place is a little difficult to find. It's on the north side of Pico in the middle of a section of stores. It's best if you travel west on Pico so you don't have to turn left into the parking lot. Plus, the parking lot is AFTER you pass the store if you go west so you can spot it and then turn in. Tell Jamaica Chloe sent you!!
