Are Oatmeal Cookies The Most Deceptive, Evil Snack Ever?
There are several types of sweet treats in my house. I have something to confess.
There are few things more disappointing in everyday life than encountering an Oatmeal Raisin cookie in a plate of tasty delciousness. Every single time I will probably mistake it for a chocolate chip cookie. And when you want a chocolate chip cookie, the raisins are simply mocking you with their inferiority.
I know a lot of people love the oatmeal raisin cookie. I think I heard once that it's one of my bosses favorites. I know Husbando loves them. Oatmeal Raisin are his favorite, and it hasn't caused a divorce in our household YET.
I know they're "nature's candy". I know there's nothing wrong with a raisin. I'm a fan of the chocolate covered raisin, after all.
I WILL catch some Raisinets. Raisinets are delicious. But an oatmeal raisin cookie is not good enough in terms of the cookie kingdom. Almost always there's a little moment of excitement when I think it might be something.... that's it's just not. Maybe oatmeal raisin cookies should make a compromise for all of humanity and just always include chocolate chips. Then, you can have the raisin but also get the true joy that is chocolate.
What do you think? Do you like oatmeal raisin cookies? What's your favorite cookie? Do you have a certain one that you always prefer?
