I love cookies.
People know this.
It's why I received messages like, "Did you see the new Chips Ahoy cookies? The ice cream flavored ones?"
I heard about them. But I could't find any in stores.
I was getting irritated.
Especially when people kept talking about how tasty they were. Well. For the most part. Some weren't impressed.
I went to the commissary one day and my heart started beating quickly when I saw this display:
I could try the ice cream cookies!
The display didn't have ANY of the ice cream flavored cookies! Only the regular ones. I circled it like three times and scared the elderly people shopping there. They probably thought I was high.
"This is a TEASE," I muttered, which probably frightened the customers around me even more. Ahh, she's talking to herself too!
It took another week and then the store finally had the proper cookies in.
I got these:
I thought, "I should drag Tommy from his cave and help me taste this."
He's 12. He's in his room playing video games a lot. Or watching YouTube videos. His room usually smells like a Taco Bell fart and dirty feet. It sort of smells like what I imagine Lindsay Lohan's breath to smell like.
"Tommy!" I called.
"WHAT?" he answered.
I disturbed the bear.
"Do you want to help me try cookies? There are a lot of kids who would love to be in your position. Some kids aren't allowed cookies, if you can believe it. I didn't get cookies growing up. I got fruit. Which, don't get me wrong, is delicious, but sometimes you want a cookie. You should never deny a child a cookie. Michelle Obama would disagree."
"You talk a lot," Tommy said from behind me. His hair was poking up all over. I have to remind him to brush it.
"Running your fingers through your hair doesn't count," I've said many times.
"Try a Root Beer Float cookie," I offered.
Despite his face, he liked it.
I did too.
I mean, it's not as tasty as a REAL root beer float, but it's a tasty cookie.
Then we opened the Mint Chocolate Chip flavor.
"I like this one the best!"
That's one of his happy faces. Ahh, the life of a tween.
I agreed with him though. The Mint Chocolate Chip flavor was better.
I might try the Dulce De Leche next. I will NOT try the mocha, as coffee flavored stuff makes me want to throw up all over the place.
If you only wanted to buy one flavor, I'd go with the Mint Chocolate Chip.
