From Clifton, NJ comes Daisy's Black and White...SUPREME. Doesn't even say "cookie" on it!
Bought at a grocery on 1st avenue and 9th street in Manhattan, it was the only B&W left in the store. Hopefully there aren't other people doing a blog like this and cleaning house.
The first curiosity about this particular cookie is how part of the chocolate side has somehow MELDED into the vanilla side! Oh my god!
Even before unwrapping the plastic I could feel that the cake and chocolate side was soft, and the vanilla side was hard. This seems to be the norm. I wonder how hard it will be to find a cookie with a soft vanilla side?
I opened the wrapper and: SHOCK. The chocolate icing has also MELDED to the wrapper! This chocolate sure likes melding!!
Missing chocolate on right, found chocolate on left
Unfortunately, something that hasn't melded with the chocolate is TASTE. While the vanilla side was hard, ultra sugary and very vanilla, the chocolate side, though pleasing, didn't really have a strong chocolate taste. It was a struggle of the tongue to get a feeling of chocolate out of it. I took a bite of the icing where the chocolate MELDED with the vanilla, and the vanilla completely overpowered it.
In all, this was a satisfying cookie and I was happy when I ate it, but there's much better out there. Supreme? No. Daisy? Well...yes.
