On July 1, I embarked on one of the most difficult challenges I’ve ever faced – eating NO CHOCOLATE for three months. No See’s Candies, no white chocolate mochas, no cookies n’ cream ice cream, no chocolate. PERIOD. Why? I’ll admit it…I’m a junk-food lover, and to try and get a grip, I’m abstaining from the junky foods I love the most – with chocolate ranking in my top 3 favorite junk foods.
So eating no chocolate brings up many interesting dilemmas – what would I drink in the mornings (vanilla chai) and how will I get that little sugar pick-me-up that so many of us often need after staring at the computer for 8 hours straight?
My solution: Vanilla Cookies. It started with Golden Oreos and progressed from brand to brand from there. After sampling several different kinds of cookies, and deciding on which are my own personal favorites – I decided to take an official informal poll to see which cookie reigns supreme. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post, where I will announce the winner of the Un-Official WCatDD VCCC (Vanilla Creme Cookie Challenge).
