In this post, I will be reviewing Lenny & Larry’s Birthday Cake Complete Cookie. I have seen this flavor around quite a bit lately, with many products touting it as tasting like a piece of white, creamy cake. It will be interesting to see how Lenny & Larry’s pulls this off.
I like the flavor of birthday cake, but not all products are created equal when trying to replicate its flavor. There are cookies, candy, and ice cream that I have tasted with the birthday cake flavor, some good, some not so good. We’ll see how this cookie stands up. I have reviewed many of Lenny’s & Larry’s cookies, including White Chocolaty Macadamia, Coconut Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, and others, and I liked them all so far. Let’s take a look at the ingredients.

Also, understand that this cookie is high in sugar and carbohydrates, so if you are watching these in you diet, keep this in mind as well. The cookie has dietary fiber, which is one of the things I like about it.
My Honest Review
When I opened the packaging, I get a very tiny smell of sugary cake, nothing too overpowering. This cookie is a bit thinner than others Iv’e tried from Lenny & Larry’s so far.
The texture is soft and moist, with the tiniest bit of grainy crunch, but the cookie does not taste grainy. I get no overt flavor of protein, and although the cookie does taste a bit like a sugar cookie, it is really not very sweet.
I would say the taste is mild, and it does taste good. There is a bit of an aftertaste, but nothing that lingers. I am drinking a bottle of water with the cookie, and if you try it, I would suggest a beverage while consuming it.
The cookie would make for a great snack, and with some fiber and protein, it is much more nutritious than a regular sugary cookie. I would suggest that you give this cookie a taste, as it is mild and filling.
You could even use this cookie as a way to get some extra protein in your diet along with a workout program. I don’t honestly think anyone would benefit building muscle with this product, but it would be good to get some extra protein and fiber. It is very tasty. Give it a try.
