Cookies and Coffee

I was shopping recently and walked past Famous Amos (a cookie franchise). Anyway I took a double take when I realised who the staff at this particular shop had used for their mascot. Could this be the dream job for Cookie Monster?

After having a quick chat with their mascot, I ordered a nice hot latte with some Famous Amos cookies. Mmmm . . choc chip and macadamia nut cookie. Cookies recommended by the Cookie Monster.

    Not just any Cookie Monster…GOOGLY-EYED Cookie Monster!

    I love Famous Amos cookies. Even though they’re pricey and I haven’t eaten them for years because the price.

    I remember back when I was a kid, I’d just shove as many as I could into my mouth. And then I’d have a sore throat for days on end. But mmm…chocolatey nutty goodness.

    I love the fact that they’re bite size! Perfect for munching. I think Famous Amos franchise is more popular in Singapore and Malaysia. I only know of the one shop here in Sydney.

    OMG… I lovvve Famous Amos cookies! The smell when they’re freshly baked drives me nuts. Can’t resist!! Hehe… fancy Cookie Monster working there… I’m surprised there are any cookies left ;)

    Hehe . . they do smell great fresh.
    Mmmm . . cookies!

    Sure Cookie Monster is good enough in business to know you shouldn’t be eating all your profits.

    Even Cookie Monsters have limits to their appetite, I’m sure!

    I wouldn’t want to have Cookie Monster as my mascot if I did run Famous Amos. He’s an awesome icon to have, but he just munches messily on cookies and leaves heaps of crumbs and unfinished cookie pieces everywhere! ;)

    Too bad I can’t get Cookie Monster to post a comment.
    I’ll ask him the next time I see him.

    Yup it’s the Chatswood one. They didn’t have the bite size cookies though when I visited last week. Cookie Monster may have been too hungry.
