Thanks to my former career as a pastry chef, I am extremely picky about baked goods. I usually make all my own donuts, pies, cakes, and cookies — you won’t find any store-bought sweets in my house. The one exception? Famous Amos. Somehow those little chocolate chip cookies melt perfectly in my mouth while still maintaining their crunch. I’ll admit I’ve eaten a bag (or five) in one sitting. But that was before I found out I have celiac disease.

Although my gluten-free diet has led me to find lots of wheat-free solutions (like this amazing GF pasta), I had been looking far and wide for years (literally!) for a Famous Amos-like cookie to no avail. That’s why I was shocked and delighted when I discovered Partake and their Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookie. Finally finding this Famous Amos taste-alike made all of the crumbly, chalky, gummy, tasteless, and sandy gluten-free cookies I’d experienced throughout my search worth it. And right now, you can score a bunch of their variety packs and mixes on sale for up to 25 percent off on Amazon for Prime Day right now.

It’s Amazon Prime Day — check out all our sales and deals coverage!

Partake is a women-owned baking brand that is a pioneer in the world of alternative foods, churning out multiple delicious cookie flavors (and other delectable items, like brownie and pancake mixes) that are certified gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and free of nine common allergens. They carefully source Fair Trade-Certified ingredients and meticulously develop recipes to deliver scrumptious and well-executed products. Partake has a vast array of inclusive and restriction-free options — think Carrot Cake Cookies and Brownie Mix — and if you’re anything like me you’ll be taking advantage of Prime Day and getting your hands on an 8-Box Variety Pack. Because who wouldn’t want to try out eight scrumptious, allergy-safe flavors of crunchy, soft, and sweet cookies? It even includes my absolute favorite flavor, the aforementioned Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I can promise you that, although all their cookies are free from wheat and animal products, they do not skimp on flavor. Made without the gums or emulsifiers that result in many GF options tasting synthetic, these treats — the Crunchy Chocolate Chip flavor in particular — achieve that perfect melt-in-your-mouth to crunch ratio. Even dunking these cookies in milk (or almond milk!) doesn’t diminish their crunch. Let’s put it this way: After watching me devour these delectable morsels, my entire family is now Partake fans even though I’m the only one with dietary restrictions.

I’ve “accidentally” eaten a whole box of these over the course of 48 hours not once, but twice in the last ten days (my boyfriend is still mad I didn’t save him any . . . ). Plus, I love how affordable these treats are in comparison to other allergen-friendly options. On any old day they’re just 4.99 a box on Amazon ( AKA roughly three cookies for a dollar). But today and tomorrow, as a part of Prime Day, you can score tons of their products with slashed pricetags. With 20-25 percent off a variety of mouth-watering goodies, there’s nothing stopping you from crunching and munching away. I know I’ll be stocking up my pantry with a variety of favorites while this deal lasts.
