I recently renewed my love for these cookies, which are not available in my area. I used to eat these in college on occasion. The 500 calories per cookie may or may not be responsible for the freshman 15 or 20 that I gained. I always seemed to crave them on Sundays as I walked past the vending machines on my way to church in the Smith Fieldhouse. I wondered if it would be considered breaking the Sabbath if I bought one from said vending machines after church, but I think they actually turned the vending machines off on Sundays at BYU. Anyways, I am glad that they make them in smaller sizes now, so I won't feel like such a pig when I eat 3 or 4 of them in one sitting. Somehow, eating a smaller cookie in greater quantities seems less indulgent than eating one of these big babies!


P.S. Granny B.- You have got to get a better picture of your signature cookie on your website! Fuzzy, very fuzzy. If you are the home of The Original Pink Cookie, don't you think you would rather highlight those gorgeous pink cookies instead of those pumpkin chocolate chippers or snickerdoodles??!! Come on!

Those cookies are EVIL!! Oh man, I could really go for one right now (6 am).

And when I bake cookies I always make them small. Originally I think it was because I was given a small cookie scoop for Christmas a thousand years ago and I still only have that one, but now I also love being able to eat 10 cookies without feeling like such a pig as I would if I ate 10 regular sized ones.

I am with you. You know I LOVE these cookies.

But I don't remember them being in a vending machine. I used to go to 7-11 at 12:01 on Sunday night/Monday mornings to buy them. You can call me a letter-of-the-law type of girl. I can handle it.

Amazing cookies. Some days teaching school, I'd have NOTHING to eat except a ginormous pink, frosted Granny B. It's no wonder my students circulated a rumor I was on crack and had ADHD. Love these cookies. I have been a good kid and haven't eaten them lately.

Glenda used to pass those out for Halloween. It was awesome. One year I dressed up for one as Halloween!

I never tried these. What's wrong with me, you might ask? Well, we both know the long and sordid answer to that question.
