Mmmm....I'm drooling just thinking about them.
1. Haagen Dazs Ginger: Part of the original cast of Hagan Daz Five, a line of ice cream with just five relatively wholesome ingredients, this Ginger ice cream is now discontinued. It was pretty darn good, not overly sweet. More like a green tea ice cream that you get at some Japanese restaurants. My four year old would fight you for a pint of this; it’s her favorite.
Whenever I dine out at The Cheesecake Factory, I make sure to bring a lot of friends. Since a slice of cheesecake may throw you back $7-$8, you need to have a group that is willing to order several different varieties. If you don't want to test out the entire list on your own (not recommended by heart surgeons), consider trying a few of my favorites on your next visit.
I recently tried Kroger’s Truly Awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies. I think that they may be the best store-bought chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever eaten. Chocolate lovers won’t be disappointed in these cookies as there are plenty of chocolate chips in every bite, unlike with many store-bought chocolate chip cookies. I like the fact that these cookies are made without preservatives.
The cookies have a homemade taste, especially if you warm one up for about 15 seconds in the microwave. Yummy. These cookies are perfect with a cold glass of milk, according to my husband. I can’t drink milk, so I guess I have to take his word for it.
A lot of us like dessert but we have to wait until after our meal in order to eat it. But sometimes, wouldn’t it just be fun yet naughty to eat it first? But then, you still have to eat the main course afterwards which maybe is not as enjoyable, so why not leave it for last and have something great to look forward to? Of course, you can choose to eat your food in whatever order you want.
In looking in the past, we can see that this was a common thought to those before us. This may be due to the fact that they did not have storage methods like we do now and food did not last. When they killed something, they had to eat it before it went bad, and depending on how long it took, it may have started to taste pretty poor by the end. For this reason, they would end their meal with something sweet that would take that taste out of their mouth and let them enjoy the rest of the day.
I’ve become addicted to sugar wafers, especially the chocolate ones. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve gotten older, or what it is. I remember my mother eating sugar wafers whenever she wanted cookies when she was about the age I am now. Maybe it has something to do with menopause or hormones.
I’ve always liked sugar wafers, I just never ate them as much as I eat them these days. I bought some a couple of months ago at the dollar store, and ate the package in about a day. Since then, I get several packages every time I am at the dollar store if they have them. I prefer the ones they sell there versus the ones they sell at Wal-Mart and the grocery store. They have less sugar in them for one thing. The ones at the dollar store have 6 grams of sugar per serving (2 wafers), while the ones they sell at the grocery store and elsewhere have 18 grams of sugar per serving. Since I usually eat about 10 wafers at a time, less sugar is better.
I prefer the chocolate flavored wafers, but I like the vanilla sugar wafers as well. I’ve gotten into the habit of going to the store every morning near where I work and buying a pack of vanilla sugar wafers for breakfast. I’m not a big fan of the strawberry wafers, but I’ll eat them if I can only get a variety pack, and not a single-flavor pack of cookies.
Of course, I could not say no to a chocolate dessert to accompany my pizza, and I quickly clicked to accept. I've tasted several pizza franchise desserts in the past, so I was not really expecting anything great. Needless to say, I was more than pleased with the quality and taste of these little chocolaty treats.
