I’ve been on a quest… searching for the new Brookie-O OREO‘s here in Chicago. No success yet. Luckily my niece Taylor had a package and was willing to share… from a safe distance of course.

Were they worth the wait?… Yummy, but not amazing.
Would I eat more? Yes.
Would I finish a whole package? Most likely.

Would I rather have that wonderful-gooey-pile-of-goodness as seen on the center of the package?

Looks like Kristy is settling in for a warm Winter’s night! Good things happen when two different Christmas gifts come together at the same time. A time she may or may not “remember” in the morning!!!

But then I just found out that there might be something out there to brighten our days!!! So much craziness going on out there… who couldn’t benefit from a little sugar therapy? I mean… three layers, three flavors!. I’m in!!!

We’ve been running a little low on our OREO quotient through the holidays, especially with new “no-food-sharing” COVID restrictions at Lillstreet. So I guess if I find these tasty treats… I guess I’ll have to eat them all by myself?! Oh shucks! Let the search begin… QUICK!!!

Oh wait… and for you cookie-challenged folks out there… BROOKIE.
That’s Brownie & Chocolate Chip Cookie combined!!! Who doesn’t love that?!!!
