Limited Eating

Sticking to the grocery list is important. We've all heard that. There are all sorts of tricks for not over spending at the grocery and the list is the biggest one. But items seem to fall into your cart anyway, in spite of the best planned list. My ONE, and I was very proud of it only being one, item not on the list are the Oreos to the right. 

It's rather easy to see why I would select them, isn't it? First of all, it's Oreos. Second of all, it's white fudge. It was $2.50 a box for what would be a third of the number of cookies you get in a regular size bag. Yeah, that's not really a deal, but this is a holiday item, I justified. 

I finally opened the container on Thursday. Wow are they white. They are difficult to eat, too. The coating gives easily but the cookie inside seems much harder than if I bought a regular bag. 

And these are incredibly sweet. I would be know for sitting down and eating half a bag of regular Oreos. I could only eat three of these. In fact, I've got half the box sitting on top of the fridge waiting for me. It's too much, even for a chocoholic like me to consume in one sitting. That's good, but I didn't realize how sweet these would be. 

I won't get them again. I'm glad I tried them. My curiosity is satiated. Having these on a platter along with other desserts at a Christmas buffet would be a nice touch. You can't really dunk them so they are best for the occasional nibble. Wonder if they will go stale? I guess we shall see. 

Beverage:  Huckleberry tea
