Samoas and Tagalongs

Samoas! Tender vanilla cookies, covered with caramel, rolled in toasted coconut, and striped with a rich, chocolaty coating. Samoas from now on should be called the Jesus cookie! OH MY GOODNESS! Is it possible to fall in love with a cookie? I think I just did. Chewy and crunchy, giving you time to savour its complexities. Like chewing on a piece of coconut while bogged down in quick sand... Feeling both the sun on your cheek with the sea breeze in your hair but simultanously knowing you are about to die...

Tagalongs! Tasty cookies topped with creamy peanut butter and covered with a luscious chocolaty coating. According to Deb in Information Services it is best dipped in a hot drink for a split second. Don't care much for this one. I mean the cookie, not Deb in Information Services!

What is it with the American facination to cover their peanut butter with chocolate! While we are on the subject... what is with their urge to dip their bananas in Peanut Butter or to eat it with Ritz Biscuits (Yes Valerie, I am talking to you!) and then to call it lunch.

As a follow up to yesterday's Thin Mints... NUMEROUS people have adviced me that you have to put it in the freezer first and then eat it when frozen.

Tomorrow, Do-si-dos and Trefoils!

    Why are you hating on the peanut butter? Are you from South Africa or something?
