When it comes to self-made success stories, Melissa Blue and Melissa Mehall of Meli’s Monster Cookies are the “mompreneurs” to watch in 2019. These hard-working moms — each with three kids under the age of 14 — established a craveable cookie brand that are now available at Walmart and Super Target stores nationwide.
Friends for over 30 years, the Melissas’ cookie business started with a family recipe passed down from Blue’s mother-in-law that has been enjoyed and loved for over 40 years.
The “aha” moment was triggered when a close family member developed a gluten intolerance. While baking monster cookies, it dawned on the Meli’s that this delicious cookie was naturally gluten-free which was the catalyst to share Meli’s Monster Cookies with the world.
Skipping out on the flour, but not the flavor, Meli’s Monster Cookies are gluten-free and don’t contain any gluten substitutes like other bland gluten-free cookies. What you will taste is a delicious, moist and chewy cookie you won’t believe came out of your oven instead of a bakery.
They both now live in Central Texas and love working together on Meli’s Monster Cookies. Blue is a former gemologist and owner of Blue Diamonds for 5 years. Mehall is a former transactional attorney.
