Who Ya Gonna Call?
Sometimes I decide to do something and half way through I wonder what possessed me to do such a thing? That may have happened today when I agreed to go on a 20km hike on a “trail” that was muddy at best and consisted largely of continuous ups and downs over slippery rocks and logs. It sure is a good thing I packed some commando cookies… Is your hike dragging on too long? Commando Cookie! Is your boss on your case? Commando Cookie! Got a 4pm hunger craving? Commando Cookie! In-laws are coming, the house is a mess and your dog just died? Commando Cookie! Commando Cookie! Commando Cookie! The commando cookie is trained to operate quickly and aggressively in especially urgent, threatening situations. It has the ability to restore energy and renew your zest for life, (or at least your taste buds). November’s issue of Bon Appetit may call them Chockablock Cookies, but Commando is definitely what they are. How else would you describe a cookie that is packed with dried cherries, apricots, cranberries, raisins, dates, pecans, cashews, almonds, coconut, oats, dark chocolate, bittersweet chocolate and reeses pieces chipits? I suppose ‘amazing’ would be another way of describing them, but I’m a fan of commando.
I think these cookies should actually be marketed to adventure junkies. What other cookie is willing to risk life and crumb, nay, enjoys risking it, to be by your side when you’re in a crisis? Just look at the little commandos, they’re deep in the wilderness, climbing over rocks and loving every minute of it! They’re ready to jump into any situation you’ve gotten yourself into, eager to save the day. They’re really the heroes of the cookie world. If adventure is your name, these cookies are your game. Commando Cookies!
