Every day, when my sisters and I got home from school, we were greeted with a glass of milk and a plate of store bought cookies. My mother stored the cookies in a large ceramic apple cookie jar that sat on our kitchen counter and I honestly don't remember it ever being empty. Cookies are still my favorite comfort food but are also my nemesis because I cannot be trusted with a bag of cookies. My absolute favorites are crisp ginger cookies, but I’ll eat any named brand bagged cookie. Honestly, if given a choice between a glass of fine wine or a cookie, hands down, I’ll take the cookie every time.
My current number one favorite food flavor is salted caramel. I adore it in/on anything – could honestly eat it on cardboard! When I heard that Oreos had limited edition salted caramel cookies I decided to do my best impression of Emmy.Four cookies = 140 calories so I figured I could handle eating just 4 cookies a day as long as I went to the gym the day I eat the cookies. Without further ado…
First impression. The cookies are thin, never had or seen the thin version in person and they look a little weird. I miss regular Oreos. But, don’t judge a book or cookie by its cover.First bite - UMMMMM?? Very disappointing. Barely taste the salted caramel but liked how crisp it is. It’s very sweet…not impressed…think I might stop now and throw out the remaining cookies. Why waste calories on a cookie I don’t love? On second thought, since I did go to the gym this morning will force myself to try another cookie. UMMMMM, it’s a bit better. Still can’t taste any salt but I ’m getting used to it. Think I need to try another one…they get better the more you eat. Okay, 4 is my limit for the day. I like them but definitely don’t love them.
Was as I good as Emmy? NO! Were the Oreos as good as advertised? NO. Going to give these to the husband so that he can bring them to his co-workers. Me, I’m going to buy a bag of ginger snaps! What’s your favorite cookie?
