It’s the COOOOKIE MONSTEEER! Bad Diet by Glenn Jones of Glennz Tees has been a popular vote getter for some time now and is finally available as a T-Shirt. I have to admit that I can totally relate to this T-Shirt because I love a good batch of cookies. In my house, whenever there is a fresh batch of cookies, I transform into a cookie eating machine. Or, whenever there are Chips Ahoy or Oreos in stock inside the pantry, I can guarantee that they wont be there for long when I am at home.
I’m not sure about you, but different cookies provide me with different cookie vibes. Let’s say for instance that I want to feel nostalgic, then I’d go with a tray of store bought Chips Ahoy. If i’m feeling especially nostalgic, I’ll zap a couple of Chips Ahoy cookies in the microwave for a few seconds. I used to love doing this as a kid. And if I’m feeling daring and nostalgic then I’ll pick up a bag of Chewy Chips Ahoy!
Sometimes when I’m at the mall, I get cookie urges. The only place to go is Mrs. Fields. The standard chocolate chip cookie is my favorite but if I’m really craving chocolate then I’ll go for a chocolate chocolate cookie.
If I’m feeling like eating a “Hawaiian” cookie then I’d have to drive myself all the way to Kailua town and order a pound of assorted cookies from Chip and Cookie. The founder of Chip and Cookie was the original founder of Famous Amos cookies. Yes, Wally Amos (founder of Famous Amos) sold the brand to the Kellogg Company and then years later started Chip and Cookie in Hawaii. If you’re ever in Hawaii, I recommend checking out Chip and Cookie, they serve up excellent bite sized cookies. Think Famous Amos before Famous Amos became mass produced.
Of course, nothing beats a home cooked batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies. Moms always make the “best” cookies and my mom is no different. Although she’s been using pre-made store bought dough more often, every once in a while she’ll bake a batch from scratch. These are the best. Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies made from scratch and with heart trump anything that can ever be bought.
