REVIEW: Lenny & Larry’s The Complete Cookie

Here is my personal opinion on many different flavors of Lenny & Larry’s The Complete Cookies. I am not biased and again, this is only my personal opinion – everyone is entitled to your own! I hope this helps if you’re trying out a new flavor or are straying away from certain flavors because of other bad reviews.

What is Lenny & Larry’s The Complete Cookie?

Lenny & Larry’s cookies are a godsend! They’re great for anyone who’s watching their weight, maintaining their macros, or trying to cut back on dessert. In my opinion, it’s one of the best alternatives to a real dessert that I have come across. And I am a dessert addict!

The Complete Cookie is filled with protein and fiber, which makes it a fast and easy way to get in additional protein and fiber into your day. They’re vegan and kosher, too. They’re free of dairy, eggs, and soy and are non-GMO. They’re made with no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial sweeteners, and no sugar alcohols…it’s amazing they actually taste good! I honestly don’t know how they do it.

Flavor Reviews

Below are the flavors I have tried and rated on a 5-star scale, with 5 stars being the best and 1 being the worst. And yes i know, I haven’t gotten to try all of the flavors they offer, at least not yet!

Birthday Cake

I was hesitant for awhile to try this flavor because I read a lot of bad reviews online. This actually tasted exactly how I expected it to taste! The biggest complaint against these guys is that it doesn’t scream birthday cake flavor when you bite into it. I’ll give them that. So get rid of that expectation. But, this doesn’t mean they taste bad!!

It tastes more like a sugar cookie with sprinkles and a very good one at that! This is one of my absolute favorite flavors by far! I’m glad Lenny & Larry decided to add sprinkles to it instead of just coming out with a plain sugar cookie. They don’t overly taste like protein and keeps you full for awhile! I would grab these in a pinch when I was running late for work and needed something to hold me off until lunch. Who doesn’t want a cookie for breakfast??

I strongly recommend giving this one a try if you’re back and forth about it. My only regret is that I didn’t try it sooner! Sometimes reviews are way too critical of the product because people’s expectations are very high.

These smell and taste incredible! 5 stars!

Snickerdoodle

The snickerdoodle flavor definitely tastes like a snickerdoodle and magically has the same sugar coating as their not-so-healthy counterparts do. This one isn’t the worst, but also isn’t my favorite either. That’s why I gave it 3 stars. I feel more indifferent about this one. It’s good but you can taste the protein more so in this than in the other flavors.

Still a staple flavor that I recommend trying! Others like this one a lot!

Chocolate Chip

I was very disappointed by the chocolate chip flavor. Being such a staple cookie flavor, you’d expect them to master this one right?! It had little flavor besides protein, it was very dense, and nothing like I hoped for it to be. I gave it 1 star, my lowest rating.

Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter is a good flavor, sold 4 star rating! Along with the peanut buttery taste we all expect, there are bits of peanuts throughout the cookie. The extra peanuts give it a bit of a crunch and make the cookie more substantial.

White Chocolate Macadamia

Another 4 stars for the White Chocolate Macadamia flavor! It tastes verrrrry close to the original flavor without all the fat or the guilt! The white chocolate brings the sweetness as the nuts keep it crunchy. A good flavor to try!

Double Chocolate

Saving another best one for last. My other favorite Complete Cookie – 5 stars for this one! If you’re a chocolate lover, you NEED to give this one a try! This definitely hits the spot if you’re craving brownies or chocolate! (especially if it’s that time of the month ladies!) I suggest giving this a try but only if you like chocolate, of course.

Let me know if you try any of the flavors above or want me to review the others that didn’t make the list!

Amateur Horror Movie Review: Flatliners

Source: Red Box
Note: I haven’t seen the original Flatliners, only the remake released in 2017.

When I first saw the trailer for Flatliners, it was one of the movies I really wanted to try to see in theaters. With it coming out around Halloween, that desire was almost impossible to fulfill. There were so many other good movies heading to theaters, too! I decided to wait until it came to OnDemand. Let’s just say everything happens for a reason.

Instead of paying almost $12 to see this movie, I only wasted about $5, which was still too much money to pay in my opinion. I honestly wish I tried to search around for a Red Box in the area.

The movie was stretched to a 2 hour film when it could have been compressed to 90 minutes, tops. So there’s 2 hours of your day wasted then and there.

Movie Premise

For those of you who don’t know, the premise of the movie involves a group of medical school students who decide to flatline (stop their heart) for up to 5 minutes at a time and then resuscitate themselves in hopes of finding out what happens once you die. It’s a hush-hush study performed in the hospital’s basement (stupid) to see any possible near-death experiences and what brain activity occurs. From the trailer, it also seemed like each student who participated in this brought some kind of demon back with them once they were brought back to life.

Somewhat interesting, right?

There’s a group of 5 who participate in this stupid “study”, and one of them never even flatlines! He’s just there because he’s the only competent doctor out of the friend group. Without him, no one would be resuscitated. I’m not even sure how any of the other 4 got into this med school.

So they all flatline, come back to life, and then they’re able to start accessing areas of their brains that couldn’t be accessed before. They begin to experience heightened emotions and intelligence. You actually see why they could potentially be a doctor one day LOL.

This only lasts about a day until they’re haunted. I thought this was going to be the scary part but I was wrong. It’s just their sins/past mistakes coming after them. Each one of them has done something shady in the past and now it’s (literally) catching up to them.

In the end, it comes down to being a story of letting go of any built up guilt you have and to forgive yourself for your wrongdoings or mistakes or else they will haunt you, and eventually consume you.

Overall Thoughts

Basically this “horror” movie wasn’t scary at all, more of a thriller, if anything. I had all the wrong intentions about it. It didn’t really captivate my attention and I found myself on my phone for half of it. The other half of the time, I was wishing it would be over soon.

If you still want to see this movie, go into it with low expectations or just no expectations at all. It had such a horrible Rotten Tomatoes rating and I watched it anyways. This will always be a mistake. Take the Rotten Tomatoes rating into consideration.

I hope you enjoyed my (very) amateur movie review on Flatliners. I love watching any horror movies, even the stupid ones! I want to watch them and review them so you don’t have to suffer if you don’t have to!!
