True . . . . but my wife makes a killer chocolate chip cookie. I can eat them as I sit outside and watch the sky . . .

Dunno, they're my favorite. But like everything it gets old after a bag. I'll buy a 6 pack of Little Debbie peanut butter crispy things and rotate to another sweet when they're gone. Calling them addictive is pretty much over the top. Diet Coke or coffee yeah I get that.

Addiction has to do with your brain's response to any stimuli; drugs, chocolate chip cookies, caffeine, roller coasters, gambling, etc. I suppose you could be addicted to anything but it is the destructive things that we become addicted to that are bad for us. I understand that I am addicted to chocolate chip cookies and that is why I try to stay away from them because I will eat them by the handfull.

And the Famous Amos chocolate chip cookies are't too bad either for store bought.

My family calls them "Famous Anus."

Ah, chocolate... Where I work, every department including mine has a bowl of candy/chocolates on the counter. It was a supreme effort last year to finally say no to all of it. I lost ten pounds without really trying. Halloween is right around the corner, the bowls will be overflowing... Gaah!! Next is Christmas, contractors bringing in all sorts of fancy cookie plates, boxes o' chocolates, and other sweets...

Rats choose sugar over heroin. Proven fact.

Cacao was called Food of the Gods by the Aztec, and (typically) reserved for the King - who could eat anything.


Sugar + cacao = chocolate. I'm addicted. Not sorry.

I don’t eat sugar. It doesn’t ever leave my body. Life is boring.

BAH! We have Tastykakes here. They don't make chocolate chip cookies, but they make all kinds of other addictive stuff. Me, I'm hooked on Chocolate Juniors. Two vanilla cakes with chocolate icing on top, and in between. I like them right out of the freezer.

Don't know how I missed this thread. Personally, I'm a butterscotch Krimpet man. When I lived in Philly [many years ago] my best friend lived in Trevose, PA. We always drove by the Tastykake factory when going to his house. I can still smell it, Mmmmmm, Tastykakes rock!!!

P.S. Orange Juniors are also awesome.
