There’s nothing like biting into a warm chocolate chip cookie, straight from the oven, that’s just beginning to cool. It’s filled with gooey goodness and the chocolate melts on your tongue.
Until you start to chew and realize there is something off about your cookie. The chocolate doesn’t taste like chocolate. It’s gross and disgusting, and how dare they call this a cookie!
And just as your face scrunches in disgust, your mother walks into the kitchen and asks, “how do you like the raisin oatmeal cookies?”
You can’t spit out the monstrosity in front of your mother, that would hurt her feelings, so you just continue chewing and nod. She takes you ‘nod’ as a sign of approval and sends you home with a dozen or so of the cookie abominations.
I don’t mind oatmeal raisin cookies, I really don’t. I’ll eat them from time to time.
It’s the simple fact that I was expecting chocolate chip but got raisin. That cookie fucking lied to me! My chocoholic brain could not process this fatal error.
Raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are the main reason I have trust issues.
