Hyperbo-Cookie

Stopped by Starbucks this afternoon for an iced coffee (yes, people, you read right: ICED. Los Angeles is a special place in the winter) and immediately noticed this:



OUTRAGEOUS, huh? Fine, you've got me. Now explain yourself:



Oh, Natalie. I do appreciate the effort, but you've got to do better than that. I've tasted it by this point and it's nothing more than a decent oatmeal raisin cookie with, like, 50 too many raisins. Yuck.



For some reason, it also brings to mind what that red headed guy from thirtysomething would look like if he were a cookie:



Wait, wasn't he also Poindexter in Revenge of the Nerds?



This cookie IS outrageous.

  3. It looks like they should have only used one kind of raisin. Very funny though.

  8. Yikes, that's a lot of raisin. Not too appetizing to me, but that chocolate chunky cookies up front look delish.

  9. DUDE. Rule number 1 of loving cookies - DOWN WITH RAISINS. Raisins have no place in cookies I'll have you know. They actually have no place in desserts of any kind. GA-ROSS.

  10. Brooklyn Brewery just released a beer based on Feed Your Soul's oatmeal cookie recipe. It's called Cookie Jar Porter.

  11. raisins belong in cookies (oatmeal), but these just look dumb.

    whatever happened to starbucks' monster cookie? oatmeal - peanut butter, chocolate chips and m&m's.

    those were the best
