While munching down a Chips Ahoy, I got to thinking...what is the best ever packaged cookie.
Oreo comes to mind first as the most popular.
Poll forthcoming.

A bit off topic but I have an issue with Little Debbie.

I've been eating her products for the better part of forever. Mom used to pack those oatmeal cream cookie things in my lunch as a kid. They were big, cream filled, oatmeal goodness on my palette.

Fast forward to last week. It had been ages since I had one of those little slices of oatmeal goodness. Probably the better part of 10 years. So here I am, grocery shopping and I walked past the Little Debbie section (she hasn't aged a bit!) and the boxes of cream filled oatmeal cookie things were calling my name. In a moment of weakness, I snatched up a box and took it home with me.

Earlier this evening, I finally cracked open the box to relive my youth. To my shock and horror, the large oatmeal pies had been replaced by their mutant dwarf cousin! These things are tiny! I was so angry!

Oh yeah, it seems that LITTLE Debbie has lived up to her name. Those once large cream pies have now been the victim of corporate down sizing. Little Debbie is obviously in this for the money and not to please me, the consumer.

That bitch.

Speaking of Little Debbie, I have always loved Nutty Bars. I recently saw a box of Nutty Bars labeled "Peanut Butter Wafers". They were by Little Debbie, too. WTF is that? Although they were at the $1.00 store.

When I was a kid, those oatmeal pies were HUGE. Now they are almost 1/2 the size they used to be. Next time you drive by Little Debbie's plant, stick your head out the window, raise your middle finger and yell, "YOU BITCH" at her for me.

It's the same piece, a little smaller box. ($1.29 Nutty Bars' wholesale is too high for them to sell for $1). They're made exclusively for dollar stores, prepriced $1.05 so they can charge $1 and it looks like a deal.

Also: Why does everyone call 'em Nutty Buddies? They're Nutty Bars. :)

I used to love Oatmeal Cream Pies. In fact, I liked 'em so much that my mom got me like 10 boxes for my birthday about 12-15 years ago.

After finishing off those 10 boxes in about a week, I don't think I've ever bought another box since then.

Packaged cookies are not as good as homade. Plus many of them are loaded with trans fat. So my vote goes for the the Fig Newton! No trans fat, and you can't make them at home. Pretty tasty too!

These Mrs. Fields White Chocolate Chunk Macadamia Nut cookies I'm eating right now are pretty tasty.
My favorite packaged cookies come from John's Super, a lil grocery store that has locations in Excelsior Springs and Kearney, MO. Some cheap, cheap off-brand; I don't even remember the name. But they have these "coffee cookies," which is to say, hard, crisp oatmeal cookies with a layer of icing on them. Most delicious shits ever.

You just wouldn't believe how much cheaper Arkansas is on tags than either Oklahoma or Kansas. I can tag in any of those states. Ar wanted $15 vehicle property tax + $27.75 for tthe tag. Both Oklahoma and Kansas wanted more than $100 property tax + the price of the ttag. So I drive the 100 miles once per year.

Boy, I'm glad I live where I do. DE tags = $20. Flat.

AR, OK, KS charge property tax every time you get tags renewed?

This should be a whole new thread.
