Ok, welcome to my First World Problem of my extremely thrilling Saturday night.
When you haven’t had something for a while, you start to remember it fondly even if you didn’t like it in the first place. Like – would I have EVER said “OMG I love store bought cookies above all others?!” four years ago? ha, NO! But, I’ve had cravings the last few weeks for Albertson’s chocolate chip cookies. Boring, plain, chocolate chip cookies. Out of a bag. Nothing fancy. Nothing special.
And yet, why did I get a little misty eyed when I saw this photo?
All I want for Christmas is a good, solid, not too soft, not-grainy chocolate chip cookie that doesn’t fall apart when I eat it. IS THAT SO HARD TO FIND? Sigh. It’s tough being gluten free some days. SO tell me – do you have any faves that you think meet my criteria above? I will kiss you right on the lips if you do!
I have an itty bitty Amazon problem. Perhaps because I have a prime membership and am sucked in by their free shipping. And also perhaps I under exaggerate my problem. It’s more than itty bitty. It’s a big problem.
But Amazon has gone and pissed me off.
Have you ever noticed that when you’re googling something that’s purchasable (google is also a verb according to wikipedia, which knows everything) Amazon always has a link to their store for said item. So when I googled “gluten free fortune cookies” I was STOKED to see that Amazon had some for purchase!
Until I clicked the link.
REALLY Amazon? You cut me deep, Amazon. You lied to me. I did search for them again once on the site and came across these babies:
Fake Fortune Cookies
And while those look tasty – THAT’S NOT WHAT I WANT. That is not a real fortune cookie! Never mind that they’re cookies. With a fortune inside. I want a perfectly shaped fortune cookie – not a coconutty toasty wannabe cookie.
But, I might buy them anyway. Even though they’re not prime eligible. And even though they’re imitation fortune cookies. Because I am a sucker.
