Camy here! And yes, I realized I just posted about marshmallows and now I’m posting about Teddy Grahams. What can I say, I’m on a food kick.
(Come to think of it, when am I not on a food kick?)
Anyway, I hadn’t eaten Teddy Grahams in years, but my friend Dineen brought a box when she came over one day. Actually, I don’t think I had even eaten a graham cracker for a year or two up until that point.
I’d eaten Teddy Grahams before, so I knew what to expect. But somehow, it was like eating them for the first time. She brought the chocolate Teddy Grahams, and they tasted just like the chocolate cookie part of an Oreo!
I was pleasantly surprised. I like the cookie part better than the icing in the middle, so this was like eating the best part of an Oreo.
Anyway, it got me hooked. I went to the store and got me a box for myself, and I’ve been happily munching ever since.
What is it about these little Teddy Grahams? I mean, they’re only bear-shaped graham crackers. Why are they so good? And no, they do not have crack in them (I checked the ingredients label).
Bear-shaped cookies. And I love them. And I don’t know why. Maybe this is harking back to the disturbing psychological reasoning behind why I enjoy biting the heads off of marshmallow Peeps.
So are there any cookies that are, for whatever illogical reason, your downfall? ’Fess up. Confession is good for the soul.
