Your choice: to die for, or from.

I've been chasing MissyDWolf with a stick ever since she started picking up packages of these and the Wegman's Mini Shortbreads and tossing the bunch in the cookie jar. These are true '5-out-of-5 Stars' cookies, two bites is all you get out of one, and that's just enough for the sensible individual. A second cookie for the third bite is the absolute stopping point since the fourth bite will leave one clearly understanding the meaning of 'too much of a good thing is not good' (these things are sweet and rich).

Yeah, macaroons are good for a few bites.  Beyond that, they're kinda nauseating.

The cookies I have in the house right now are these oatmeal cookies from the Dollar Tree.  Dry, brittle, not much flavor.  I get them because they're not compelling at all.  Great for when you're trying to shed some pounds and just feel the need for some sorta crappy snack once in awhile.

Correct about macaroons...and pretty much the 'justification' used for the shortbreads, but I can't buy it. The shortbreads are almost as great, but even one of each is too much sweet in one sitting - again, 1 and 1/2 is the limit. One might suspect Wegman's took a lesson from the old Lay's Potato Chip ads ("Bet you can't eat just one!!")

I bought frozen macaroon dough from a co-worker (who was selling it on behalf of one of her kids).  When I got around to making them, I discovered that they weren't as good as I'd hoped.  That is, they were OK one bite at a time.  Took me a long time to finish them up.

As I've gotten older, I find rich, sweet desserts to be completely unappealing.  Plain cake, plain cookies, plain ice cream---that's more my speed.

I can eat a whole bag of Macaroons at once without blinking an eye.

They're awesome with coffee.

You guys are just pussies.

That's the way I am with ice cream.  I can eat an entire half-gallon (or whatever size it is these days) in one day.

As far as cookies, Chips Ahoy cookies are pretty addictive to me.  Actually, the Walmart equivalent is better (and cheaper).

Awhile back, I finally tried Double Stuff Oreos.  They were too sweet.  One-and-a-Half Stuff would've been perfect.

Y'know, they're so sure everyone loves the cream...personally, I'd murder a bag of just the black cookies.

I miss the old Hydrox cookies.  I liked the cookie better than the one used in Oreos.

Ouch...and precisely THAT was 'the straw that broke the camel's back'.
I was going to crank up this thread a few days back, but I started today with *2* coconut macaroons and a cup of black coffee. The coffee just couldn't take over the deadly 4th bite of macaroon - had that overly suguraly-sweet bile-style taste in my mouth for a half hour.

^It's actually the coconut doing that, not the sugar. Because the coconut stuff is all oil-derived. And with you drinking coffee, which is water-based, the two were fighting each other off, meaning the flavours of the coffee never touched your tongue which was coated in oil.

I chase Macaroons with coffee that's been sweetened with flavored creamer & can still polish off as many as you can throw at me.

DeadThat just sounds so unhealthy and 'jitter-inducing'. When you were young, were you one of those undiagnosed ADD medicine-requiring brats that used to get dragged out of kindergarten by the hair, after 'milk & cookies', right as 'story time on our blankets' (next thing was 'nap time') started?

No, I was always very calm & docile as a kid. Never really got into much trouble in school until junior high. And even that didn't last too long. As soon as the Miami vice squad cop's family & their juvenile delinquent kids moved away from across the street about halfway through the school year (thank God), I went back to being a nice, well-behaved kid again.

Until high school, anyway.

ShockedConfusedAwwwww heck.
Went 'sleep munching', last night.
Or MissyDWolf did.
They're all gone...and now I want one with my black coffee.
She likes claiming the shortbreads....some are left and she's still on vacation in Dreamland.
Think I'll tell her she ate them, too.
Maybe I'll feed her one in her sleep, as a sloppy little prank.
