Sunday Stealing from the Cookie Jar

Questions to get to know each other.

1. Do you eat Oreos?

Sure.

2. If you eat Oreos, which are your favorite – original, double stuff, golden original, golden double stuff, Oreo brownies, Oreo ice cream?

I’m convinced that “double stuff” is the same size as the actual “original” from the 90’s. I might not be wrong: https://www.cnn.com/2013/08/21/us/oreo-high-school-experiment/index.html

3. Do you twist your Oreos apart?

Sometimes.

4. Are you able to pass by a plate of cookies and not take one or are you a bit of a ‘Cookie Monster’?

I can resist. Unless a princess is offering. One never says no to tea and cookies with a princess.
*Gender and royal blood are unrelated to being a princess.

5. Tell us about your favorite cookie. Crunchy, soft, chewy, crumbly, other?

Chewy white macadamia with craisins.

6. Have your tastes changed since you were a kid?

I guess?

7. Enquiring minds want to know if you are a dunker and, if so, do you dunk in milk, coffee, or tea?

Sometimes, and whichever is around. Why isn’t rootbeer an option here? Or Sarsaparilla?

8. It is that time of year and they are selling them on every corner and in front of every store! Do you buy Girl Scout cookies and if you do, which is your favorite?

Apparently they aren’t doing that stores and corners attack in my state. Instead, I see three mothers in the break room all selling them on behalf of their daughters. Which implies you either buy three boxes or have one or two people mad at you for the year. So no, I’ve been getting mine from Keebler rather than deal with a diplomatic nightmare.

The last time I bought some was straight from a dealer a few years back. There were some lemon Georgia ones. Savannah Smiles? Sadly, she passed away from cancer.

9. Raw cookie dough. Yay or Nay?

I’ve had some. It’s okay.

10. Do you like cookies with filling?

Sure.

11. Do you prefer organic cookies?

This is such a strange question. People went to a place. The food was good. It didn’t have the famine issues they knew. They killed the people and burned all the information on how to do this. Then, about two-hundred-fifty years later, there was a huge movement to try to figure out this big secret, but this time they called it “organic,” and charged two to four times the going price of stuff.

Please don’t ask this Native American about organic. It’s just embarrassing for both of us.

12. Large cookies, or small cookies?

Large. I have big hands.

13. Do you like familiar flavours in cookies?

Sure

14. Do you make your own cookies, or buy them?

I don’t bake. So either buy, or my Snookums makes them.
Mostly I eat the imaginary ones with the princesses.
If imaginary ones had real calories, I’d weigh 800 pounds by now.

15. Please tell us something random about your week!!
menchies mint froyo
My cousin-in-law sent me this picture. Later, when I asked her about it, she said she meant to send it to her husband, but hit the wrong Dorner in her contact list.
You might note that she went to Menchie’s. She got mint and chocolate frozen yogurt with oreo cookie peices. (And whipped cream and a cherry.)
Considering today’s topic, this random text goes well.

  1. Love how that random picture fit the theme!

    And thank you for the links to the Oreo debate. I’ll have to share that with my students. 🙂

    1. Glad to help you come up with a cookie debate for class.

      And yeah, I couldn’t believe when those things lined up.

    I always get upset when I see mothers (or grandmothers) selling things the kids are supposed to be selling. I sold my own Girl Scout cookies..and Christmas stamps…and anything else a group I was in asked us to sell.

    1. They’re nurses and work absurd hours, so I’m guessing it’s the attempt to contribute because you can’t be there. Too busy keeping other kids alive. So, I don’t know. I cut them some slack. But I just can’t piss one of them off. It’s really a diplomatic nightmare. You have no idea. Okay, maybe if you watch certain medical dramas you have some idea. Ha ha.

  2. I love white macadamia cookies! YUMMY! Loved your answers! Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

    No, you would not want to diss a Princess. lol

    1. I get invited to a LOT of tea parties with princesses and a wolf. (Kid wants to be a wolf, be a wolf.)

  3. That is just so funny. I didn’t discover Oreos until I did summer camp in 1976. And they arrived here some time later. Now they are everywhere, even in Cadbury’s chocolate, which defeats the purpose of that fabulous Oreo chocolate flavour, to my mind.
    Find on Twitter:

    1. People tend to call Oreo flavor “cookies-n-cream,” which is fine… until they came out with a cookies-n-cream flavored Oreo. And everyone lost their minds.

  4. I always loved Oreos when I lived in the states, so it was a huge shock to discover they didn’t exist in New Zealand (back when I first came here). Now they are available in supermarkets here, but they don’t taste exactly the way I remember them….

    1. That seems to be true of a lot of international food. Though I hear Coke/ Coca-Cola is the same everywhere.
