looking for parve dairy free cookies that are in supermarkets

Again mostly looking for stuff I can get pre packaged from a supermarket.

Most of the sugar free stuff in the cookie aisle is ou-d - I'm looking for parve dairy free cookies.

I found D-Liteful Baking Company at my local store. Looking for others.

Thanks Cheryl

      In the New York area, at least, the most common pareve cookie is Stella D'Oro's Swiss Fudge Cookies. There was outcry and a serious drop in sales about 5-6 years ago when they tried to make them with a cheaper, dairy chocolate. They aren't sugar-free; you were unclear in your post as to whether that was necessary for you.

        I'm in Orlando Florida - but I have relatives in Stoughton MA and in Queeens NY that I could call on to get me stuff

          I was at our local CVS pharmacy this morning(NJ) and all the Stella D'Oros cookies were labeled kosher pareve. I'm surprised they wouldn't sell them in Florida.

            My local Stop & Shop carries pareve Kinneret frozen ready-to-bake chocolate chip cookies.

          1. Shoprite now has a line of "mini" cookies (under their own ShopRite brand) that are OU - Parve, pas yisroel and yoshon. They have chocolate-chip and a couple of other flavors. The CC cookies, at least, are excellent. And they are very inexpensive.

              Do you know the specific name of the "mini" cookies? I'd love to go to my shoprite and ask for them. Are they located in the bakery section or the cookie section?

              1. re: gigig99

                They are called (surprise) Shoprite mini chocolate-chip cookies & they are located in the cookie section.

                1. re: hanistor

                  I tried the shoprite cookies, about as mediocre as any cheap cookies I have ever tasted. As long as you just need any cookie and don't have to taste them they would be fine!

            2. Supermarkets generally don't carry lines of pareve cookies, because the national brands carried in supermarkets are all milchig (aside from Stella D'oro, as mentioned). But if your local supermarket has a kosher section or aisle, you might check there for the "Jewish" brands, which will be pareve. You'll find the most pareve lines in the Jewish supermarkets, in every large Jewish neighborhood. . You can also find them in health food stores, which stock them to satisfy the needs of their dairy-free customers.

              1. Try Natural Ovens-- made in WI, hashgacha from the CRC in Chicago., if not in your supermarket. Not cheap, but quite good.

                  Trader Joe's has kosher pareve merangue cookies.
