So I get a call from my friend Matt.
Getting into a car on a foggy Canadian day.
Matt: YEAH...Have you had a "Angel's Bakery" cookie?
Me: Is that like a store brand?
Me: NO! I haven't! Can you get me one??
Matt: I got you one.
Me: GREAT! Great...
Good looking out, buddy! So today I drove to Sunnyside, picked the cookie up, came home and ate it at 5:30 AM. Thanks to Matt!!
NOTE: I forgot to buy a new battery for my digital camera, so for this edition I used my old Polaroid camera! The last time I used it was in 2002, so honestly I'm shocked there was still film in it!
SO is this a gift from the Angels? Or...FROM HELL.
This wrapper has the most nudity on any Black and White Cookie label so far!! Look at his little jew-fro. And boy are those ingredients a chore to read. I hope they aren't arranged in such an eye straining way for a REASON.
Let's chow down!
The vanilla was...HARD. OUCH. My teeth felt the cookie more than my tongue. I needed a second bite to even evaluate the taste. Basically the vanilla wasn't strong, and was not very unique. I guess most of these store brands are pretty similar.
THEN the chocolate. Peekaboo!
Softer and pleasant, but not blowing my mind or anything. A deep muddy taste, like dark chocolate. Still I had to strain to really taste it. There just isn't a whole lot of flavor in this cookie.
MILK TIME!!!! WIIIIIIIIPE OUT!!!
Wow Polaroid pictures really bring out the...ugly side of...me.
The cake was pretty basic too -- not fluffy, but pretty dry and soft. It was good! But much like the icing, it barely jumped out.
Why, the vanilla is so hard and plastic that I could just pop it RIGHT off the cake! Look.
They could sell this stuff as a product all it's own!!!
So in conclusion, this cookie kind of sucked. I enjoyed eating it but I expect more from "Heaven On Earth."
Because I don't know how to end this post, here is dictionary.com's definition of "Angel"
1. one of a class of spiritual beings; a celestial attendant of God. In medieval angelology, angels constituted the lowest of the nine celestial orders (seraphim, cherubim, thrones, dominations or dominions, virtues, powers, principalities or princedoms, archangels, and angels)
Lowest of 9 celestial orders is RIGHT!!! Thumbs DOOOOWN!
