I opted for the chocolate chip ones – I wanted to really “taste” the middle of the Middle. I grabbed a box on the middle shelf.
I rushed home (I was this close to opening it in the car), and threw down my bags in a frenzy. Never mind the groceries I just bought that needed to be refrigerated. Screw the new clothes I just bought on sale. Who cares about the DVDs of 70’s sitcoms I found at Best Buy at a ridiculous price because I was the only person that probably watched them. There were cookies to be had.
The cookies appeared unassuming at first glance; looked like nothing special. They sat almost smug, like they knew they were hiding something, all lined up in a row. But in one bite, there it was. It was like chocolate fudge icing wearing a cookie Halloween costume four months too early.
I’ll admit I am a bit of a cookie snob. I would typically prefer to bake my own cookies rather than buy them in the store. When I do buy cookies whether it be from a grocery shop or a bakery, I’m kinda critical of ’em. I have to say though, these were pretty darn good. And what makes ’em even better? A short amount of time in a microwave, or in my case, a toaster oven.
Needless to say I will attempt to make my own batch of Middles. But that’ll come later; right now I’ve got a box of cookies to go through, straight to my middle.
