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.

        2. 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. www.naturalovens.com, if not in your supermarket. Not cheap, but quite good.

                Trader Joe's has kosher pareve merangue cookies.

              2. I was shoprite yesterday and I found cookies in the bakery section, I think they were called "Scottos" and they were Kosher pareve and they looked amazing(don't know about taste), they looked like bakery cookies you buy by the pound. I think if they are still selling them next month, I'll be buying them for our school dinner. They were $6.99 for what looked like 2 lbs.

                1. Do the cookies need to have certification?

                    Yes since I need them for oneg for a Conservative temple

                  2. perhaps french twists would work? they are at many grocery stores and sometimes even the 99 cents store.


                    1. I know that these aren't available in regular supermarkets, but I just wanted to give a heads up about Fuesengold chocolate shortcake cookies that are available in some kosher supermarkets. They are packaged cookies imported from Holland, and are head and shoulders above any other packaged pareve cookie I've ever tasted. Stella D'Oro Swiss Fudge cookies aren't even in the same league.

                      1. Matt's cookies, available in the midwest and online, are hands down the best commercial parve cookies ever made.

                          ITA-- snacking on oatmeal raisin right now.

                        2. I've seen at many supermarkets across the U.S.A - usually in the produce section, of all places - (U) Parve ladyfingers and (U) Parve small spongecake cups (for strawberry shortcake, I suppose). I'm not sure about the brand name and, if fact, the product may be sold under several different brands... but I've consistently found these two products in supermarkets in the most unlikely of places around the country, and they always have been (U) Parve.

                          Also, Jennie's macaroons kosher [I believe (U) or Kof-K] Parve; they're available in many flavors at health food stores across the country.

                          Scotto's cookes are Kof-K Parve, and they're available at some supermarkets as well as National Wholesale Liquidators.


                          1. Today in a Key Foods supermarket, I spotted SPECIALTY BAKERS' brand Lady Fingers and chocolate and vanilla small sponge cake bases (for filling with strawberries, dairy or parve ice cream, etc.). All are certified (U) parve, and are usually sold in the produce (!) or bakery section. I've seen these products in supermarkets all over the country, including Tennessee and New York.
