Maker of Mouthwatering Chocolate Chip Cookies Given Top Honor in Annual Libby Awards

Norfolk, Va. -- Lucy's Chocolate Chip Cookies have won the Libby Award for Best Vegan Cookies from peta2, the world's largest youth animal rights organization. The fourth annual Libby Awards ("Libby" is for "liberation") to honor animal-friendly people and products. Visitors to peta2.com helped peta2 determine the winners by voting for their favorites in each category.
Norfolk resident Dr. Lucy Gibney started Lucy's after learning that her child had severe food allergies. Lucy's cookies are great-tasting and gluten-free, and they are made without common allergens and other objectionable ingredients such as milk, butter, eggs, casein, peanuts, and tree nuts. Lucy's also makes vegan sugar cookies, cinnamon thins, and oatmeal cookies--which is good news for chickens and cows who are abused on factory farms. No longer available only to Hampton Roads residents, Lucy's cookies are now found at Whole Foods and Starbucks locations nationwide.
"We commend Lucy's for offering products that are as good to animals as they are to your taste buds," says peta2 youth outreach coordinator Paige Snyder, "and peta2 is proud to share a hometown with this progressive business."
Lucy's won out over other popular vegan cookies, including Flying J Chocolate Chip Cookies, Thanks-A-Lot Girl Scout Cookies, Uncle Eddie's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Nabisco Iced Oatmeal Cookies.
Thirty-eight Libby Awards were given out this year, recognizing everything from the most animal-friendly athlete and record label to the most animal-friendly rock band and clothing company. Winners will receive plaques and will be featured on peta2.com.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
