Stop & Shop

"Stop." "Shop."


Stop. And. Shop. Intriguing.

A cookie of Black. A cookie of White.

It calls to me.

I will answer.

A small preview of the chocolate.

Soft. Delicious. Chocolate is deep, rich. Chewy. Soft. I said that already. This is a taste that will not get out of your mouth for a very long time.


Amazing. Incredibly delicious. Almost want this cookie to be entirely vanilla.

Want more vanilla.


Finished vanilla. Woopsie. Daisy.







I know what I need.

Milk. I need Milk.

I...am Milk?



And it is...Heaven.

Hey gang! The cookie was real good. I recommend Stop And Shop Black and White cookies!

I have a new website!

Hello there!

Unfortunately this post is not cookie related, but I feel it is my responsibility to inform you all that I have a NEW website.

It's called WriteASongAboutMe.com

You go to the site, fill out a form, and paypal a measly $10, and I will write a song about you. It's all based on whatever you want to tell me in the form. There are some previous song examples in the archive section, and everything is explained thoroughly in the F.A.Q.

It would be cool if people checked this out! Super cool.

Pizza Villagio Cafe

Oh hi, Internet!

Yesterday me and my friend Matt Koff went to see Conan O' Brien's show at Radio City Music Hall. It was a fun and funny extravaganza, with special guests (Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Paul Rudd, John Krasinski) and not as special guests (Vampire Weekend.) We also got a video from Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, and an amazing display of the Walker Texas Ranger Lever.
None of this however, compared to THE BLACK AND WHITE COOKIE I ATE BEFORE THE SHOW.

Me and Matt wandered into a place called Pizza Villagio (1412 6th Avenue, near 58th street.) I wasn't expecting much -- it was one of those all purpose deli/pizza/grocery store places where normally everything is a bit on the average side. My general theory is if pizza (or any food) is a secondary concern of your place of business, it won't be too good. Dramatic pause.

(more dramatic!)


I was wrong.

The pizza was actually really good. Like...REALLY good. And on my way to pay for it, next to rows of amazing looking brownies and cakes, I saw...shrink-wrapped black and white cookies. Right by the cash register, those sneaky, diabolical devils. Why not buy one? I didn't have my camera for this one, so excuse the poor quality cell phone pictures, which look kind of sleazy and amateur porn-like.

Holy Hell. It was GOOD. Really good. I can't believe I'm saying this, but one of the best I've had on this blog.

I ate it so fast, I forgot to take notes. But the general gist of it was (chomp):

It was soft, chewy, and delicious. The chocolate side tasted unique, and the icing melted in my mouth. The vanilla side, WHICH WAS VERY SLIGHT (my only criticism) was not a tough and sugary plastic lid, but rather a soft and tasty treat.

With my filthy fingers I begrudgingly tore a small piece off for Matt to try. He seemed to agree that it was good. We left Pizza Villagio...FOREVER.

Check out their hilarious (no it's not) website:

See ya next time, suckers!

Long time no cookie!

I'm going to skip the "sorry I don't update this as often" shpiel (it IS SO a word, spell check!), and go right to the review:

I was in the grocery store down the block from my house when I spotted these little guys, looking at me with their puppy dog eyes.

This is embarrassing, but I had to call up my roommate Adam (who you are familiar with) to ask him to check this blog to see if I had already reviewed these cookies. After a few google searches, it was confirmed that I had in fact NOT eaten "Bon Appetito"s before. Oh, goody! Or goodies, rather. Then Adam said "never call me again" and hung up.

I took the cookies with me to Bellmore, Long Island, to hang out with Dave and Krissy (who you also know...so I have a very small and recurring circle of friends...so what!)

It was "Buffy" night, which means we were marathoning Buffy: The Vampire Slayer. We're knee deep into season six, my favorite season. And we were ESPECIALLY knee deep into this glorious episode:

ANYWAY, I busted out the cookies and we ate the shit out of them.

Krissy was pretty unimpressed.

Dave enjoyed them a bit more.

And me?


Jordan Cooper?


Because they were mini cookies, I just took some big bites and organized my thoughts later. But basically...

They were way too hard (stale?), but the taste was pretty good. I think if they were soft and fresh, they could have been some of my all time favorites. Dave said he liked the crunchiness. Typical Dave.

The vanilla side in this case was a lot more noticeable and tastier than the chocolate side. I can still very clearly remember what the vanilla taste like, which was very strong and ultra-vanilla (I'm writing this at 4:30 AM), whereas the chocolate side is but a ghost in my memory. It wasn't BAD, but it seemed very dull and easily dismissed. All vanilla cookies would not be a bad idea with this brand!

I've still got a bunch left for my roommates to try out. Maybe I'll update this with their thoughts.

See you soon. I'm balancing a lot of blogs (mostly music related) and other life things right now, so I'm not trying to fool anybody about how often I'll update this. But I still very much want to keep doing this blog. So check back! Or don't. I'll understand if you just want to be friends.
