Just a quick question

Am I the only one who eats chocolate in the morning? Whenever I buy a brownie or a cookie before noon, I always get some snide remark, either from another customer, or from the cashier. Did I miss the “Miss Manners” column on this one?

    I had an oatmeal-and-chocolate thingee for breakfast this morning. Yum!

    I bet those are really good, but I could never get into the whole chocolate oatmeal thing. It may be that I was scarred for life when, as a child, someone served me cookies that looked like chocolate-chip, but were in fact the humdrum oatmeal-raisin variety. Now I seem to have an automatic oatmeal ≠ chocolate decadence reflex.

    I usually have chocolate chip cookies for breakfast. Sometimes a chocolate donut…
    I used to have the same fear of oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies, too, but Doubletree’s cookies cured me of that.

    Good chocolate chip cookies are good, quite tasty, and should be consumed by true believers at any time of day or night, but let’s come clean here, the choc chip cookie category is extremely overrated. Do any other (edible) cookie types get comparable pub? I don’t think so.
    Oatmeal/raisin humdrum? I think you meant to say the near perfect melding of flavor, texture, and chewiness. Love it, don’t fear it. You must admit that chocolate chip cookies are much less reliably chewy, and there are few things in life as disappointing as a super dry cookie. You bite into one and immediately think “dog biscuit.” Another reason for milk I suppose.

    Pat,

    That may be true, but the only thing more disappointing than a dry chocolate chip cookie is a dry oatmeal cookie. Biting into a glutenous mass so hard that it threatens to chip a tooth is really something the torturers at Abu Graib ought to consider…

    Dave,
    Dry oatmeal raisin cookies certainly are disappointing, but in my experience
    such beasts occur much less frequently in nature than dry
    chocolate chip ones. Thus, there is significantly less dental risk.
