One of my all time favorite things to have as a snack growing up was cookie “cereal”.
Not those boxes of “oreo o’s” or “cookie crisp”. Nope. I didn’t want fake cookie-flavored cereal.
I wanted cookies.
REAL cookies, broken up into bite size pieces, covered with milk, and eaten with spoon.
Maybe it’s because I’m lazy. This saved me from having to dip each cookie into a mug of milk, plus this means that when you get to the bottom of your bowl of “cereal”, it’s filled with little cookie bits and the milk tastes just like the cookie itself.
This is also probably one of the reasons I had cavities at almost every dentist appointment when I was a kid.
And I didn’t stop at one kind of cookie.
My favorites growing up were tied with oreo’s or chips ahoy chocolate chip cookies. They were the best because the milk really soaked in. But, really, any cookie will work.
I never said I ate the healthiest things growing up, and I still don’t.
I definitely had this bowl as my afternoon snack on Monday, and I enjoyed every cookie-filled bite.
Sometimes, you just need a reminder of your childhood. And that’s what this is for me.
Am I the only one that does this? Or do you have your own childhood concoctions?
