It's Cookie Time

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

When Tony was in town this summer he and Keira got to talking about chocolate chips. I’m not sure what kind of wagers were placed but the discussion lead to Tony mailing Keira 4 packs of unmarked chips. A test of sorts? A cookie baking challenge? Chocolate connoisseurs’ competition? Whatever the reason, Keira planned to bake every last one of those chips into a cookie and invited me along for the ride. We still don’t know what brands they were but I can honestly say I’m so tired of eating and sampling cookies at this point, even the thought of the Keebler Elves makes me queasy.

Keira has a detailed post up and comments on how we ranked each anonymous chip (labeled A, B, C or D).

Chocolate chip “D” was the loser, but with its odd flavour, Becky and I were convinced that Tony may have doused it in an illegal substance. Okay, maybe not, but “D” was weird. Chocolate chip “A” won a special award for Biggest Overall Improvement. [Keira-Anne]

Since my recent all-photo post with Keira was so warmly welcomed, I shall do the same for our Cookie Pusher night.


She kept doing that then sticking it back in the dough, geez!

the mix

4 bowls for 4 types of chip, this was a very scientific experiment.

Okay I really can’t blame this on “D” batch…

We both felt pretty “ick” after all those tasting rounds

tallying up

Results. Now… does anyone want some cookies? I got a big bag full and Keira’s got about another two dozen at home. We still don’t know what A, B, C or D were so maybe Tony can soon identify these mystery chips.

    It was so much fun! We should conduct food experiments for a living. Stuff like this is stuff people should pay us for!

    And then you find out they were actually all the same brand…

    This way well become the pilot episode of a long series of testing unlabeled edibles from foreign men. Perhaps i’ll pop by for a bite of cookie. The pictures made me hungry.
