Cheesecake, cheesecake, cheesecake! Me and my friends once got lost for over an hour in Brooklyn trying to remember where Junior's Bakery is, just to sit down in the bright and colorful room (with crayons on the table!) and eat a big juicy moist slice of crazy cheesecake.
During my temp job last week (that I was...fired from?? I'm not sure, but I was told not to come in THIS week...) I stopped over at a small division of Junior's and noticed they had small boxes of Black and White Cookies in the window. OUCH, they were around $16.00 each. I asked them if they sold single cookies, and they did! As I was paying, one of the girls working there dropped a box and orange juice started spilling all over the floor. The guy behind the counter looked at me and rolled his eyes.
I brought the cookie back to my office and took some miserable pictures.
The wallpaper on the computer screen in front of me. Eugh.
Doodles on the notes I had to take.
Cut to one week later, I'm at home, ready to CHECK it OUT.
First I tried the Vanilla.
Chomp. Ow. Hard. Sugary. Not terribly bad, but I was expecting something richer and...OK, I WAS EXPECTING IT TO TASTE LIKE CHEESECAKE. DAMMIT.
Then I tried the chocolate.
Hmm. Really soft...but...something tastes...weird. Ah, I know. The chocolate tastes (and feels) like cupcake frosting. But cheap cupcake frosting, like from an entenmann's box of Valentine's Day cupcakes. Look at the sludgey fudget chocolate.
The cake was average. Not great, but not bad.
The cookie tasted the best when eating both sides at the same time, so II tried eating it like a hamburger (which I have never had.)
In the end, I could not finish the cookie...
Besides, I needed room for my big Bucket-O-Pretzels!
