The Cookie Monster Strikes Again

Well, it was only a matter of time that hubby asked for more cookies from the box that Newman’s Own Organics sent us to sample a while back. And this time he convinced me that we should open two bags at the same time: one “for us” and one “for the toddler.” He chose the Newman’s Own Organics Orange Chocolate cookies for “us.” I had one as soon as he opened the bag, just to make sure I would get one… And it was a good thing I did because when I wanted to get another one a few days later, they were all gone… I really enjoyed the orange/chocolate combo, and I liked that the cookies were small.



“For the toddler” he chose the Newman’s Own Organics Cinnamon Graham Alphabet Cookies.
 

I have to say that the toddler truly enjoyed a few of “his” cookies, but I certainly noticed that the majority of the cookies were eaten by none other than the cookie monster, aka hubby! I also enjoyed a few of the cinnamon graham cookies; they are delicious. I love all things with cinnamon, and alphabet cookies are just so much fun… Plus they are small, and the serving size is 10 cookies and 120 calories (I think; I’m writing this from memory…). I felt very satisfied with just 5 cookies and still got my cinnamon/sugar fix.

Question: What’s your favorite cookie? I think I’d have to say snickerdoodles; I told you I love cinnamon…

And don’t forget, you still have until tonight, Thursday, January 21 at 9:00 p.m. PST to enter my Core Performance for Women giveaway. The toddler will draw a winner tomorrow morning, and I will post the winner later in the day.

Be well,
Andrea

  1. lol at the "cookie monster"!

    It's hard to pick just one favorite cookie. I love oatmeal raisin cookies and ginger snaps.

  6. Isn't it sometimes hard being married to a guy with a sweet tooth?! I talk to these women who say, "my husband/boyfriend hates sugar!" but Nick is more addicted than I am! He would have been just like your hubby, and eaten most of the cookies. Of course, these are somewhat healthy (healthier) so I guess it could be much worse! Nick is just crazy, he would eat an entire sleeve of Girl Scout cookies if I were there to stop him! I wouldn't stop him though, obviously he has to learn on his own (haha, as if he's my kid).

    Favorite cookie: Anything with chocolate and peanut butter! Girl scout cookie Tagalongs :)

  7. Both of those cookies look like winners. Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices!

    Favorite cookie would have to be peanut butter chocolate no bake cookies. I try not to have them around because they are irresistible ;)

  9. Haha - I have a cookie monster in my house, too!

    Hands down favorite cookie - Chocolate chip!

  10. Orange and chocolate is always a winner in my book! But my favorite cookies would have to be shortbread like Lorna Doone if they are purchased and Snickerdoodles or peanut butter if homemade.

  11. Yum! I love all kinds of cookies! Chocolate chip ones are probably still my favorite!

  12. These look very yummy! I can't say I have a favourite cookie. I'm actually not a big cookie person. Treats for me go more to the savory side of the scale. But I can plow through more than my share of homemade chocolate chip if they're put in front of me and I have a recipe for peanut butter ginger snaps that are a-mazing!

  13. Lindt dark chocolate with orange is one of my favorite chocolate bars, so I can imagine the cookies taste great! I haven't had a newman's product in awhile, but I love their fig newtons!

  15. I love Newman's Organic cookies. Plus, they support such a great cause, too. Man, what cookie, DON'T I like? Hah. I dunno if I could pick just one. ;)

  16. Those look SO good!! I only see this brand at our Kroger and they're pricy here - boo!

    My fave is chocolate chip - simple and fab! (i don't get upset if PB or oatmeal is in there though!)

  18. hrm my comment didnt post! but i said something to the tune of it being impossible to pick a fave cookie!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh those are 2 flavors we actually didn't get! We've already eaten the chocolate chip and the chocolate chocolate chip and are holding out for espresso chocolate chip :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. oh those look so great. I think my favorite cookie is oatmeal by far. Cant beat a great soft chewy oatie!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh I can't pick favorites. It's so hard. Some of the kinds I like best are chocolate chip, oatmeal chocolate chip (not oatmeal raisin!), and white-chocolate macadamia. mmmmm =)

  23. I cannot resist a fresh baked chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven! num, num, num!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am with you on the snickerdoodles - just a hint of crunch on the outside, but still chewy on the inside - yum!

    Happy Friday!
