Chez Sha's Review and Giveaway

Cookies are warm and comforting. On a cold winter's day or even when it's snowing, baking is what I love to do. There's something about those fluffy white flakes falling that gets me in the baking mood. Cookies transform us back to our childhood and we associate these sweet treats with positive, happy thoughts.

Chez Sha's serves up fabulous sweet treats. For years, their love of baking and perfecting just the right combinations of spices has been the delight of family, friends, co-workers, schools, and various agencies.

Their passion for baking and cooking is attributed to the culinary roots of their Louisiana heritage. They are set apart from all others by a rich taste that has been cultivated as if it was an art form. Their distinct spices, delicate blends of the freshest and most savory ingredients and intricate balance are what make Chez Sha unique and delicious. Since 1992, they have prided themselves on the superb quality and taste found in their products. (Taken from website.)

Whether you are craving a variety of soft and chewy cookies, or pralines, Chez Sha's has you covered.

I was sent a tin of chocolate chip and cranberry with walnut cookies.


The chocolate were my favorite. They had a hint of something extra in them that I couldn't quite place. It tasted sort of ginger-y. It gave the cookie an extra notch of personality, which I enjoyed. The cookie was chock full of chocolate chips which I absolutely loved. It was flavorful, soft and melt in your mouth delicious. I wanted to eat all of the chocolate cookies at once, but I controlled myself :)

I didn't enjoy the cranberry walnut cookies too much. I don't like walnuts combined with cranberry, and I don't enjoy fruit in cookies though. I know people enjoy cookies like this though.
