A couple of days I stumbled upon this box of cookies at Carrefour, I had to pick them up.
I could tell from the packaging that they were a little taste of home. Chips Ahoy! And even better, the chewy kind. my favorite.
Now I don’t normally buy a lot of cookies or junk food. Not because I have anything against it, it just usually ends up cluttering up our pantry for months because we don’t really eat it. But in this case, I wanted a little taste of home.
So I bought them.
I was very impressed because they were only a few kuai. Less than 1 US dollar. Not usually the case with imported foods.
After dinner that night, I pulled out my box of cookies. It was a box. Not the same as the plastic trays with the crackly wrapping like in the US. And a little smaller.
And when I pulled out the little tray, I was a little surprised.
Not because the cookies were different. Thankfully they were exactly what I expected. This time. (That isn’t always the case. I bought a similar package before and was surprised to find that instead of chocolate chips, they were filled with blueberries.)
I was surprised because that whole box only contained 6 cookies.
The hubby never did find out I bought chips ahoy cookies. Six just isn’t enough to share. At least in my book. Btw, this is the OTHER reason I don’t buy junk food.
