Ridge's Review--Carrot Cake Cookie, the heroin of the Studios

OK, so I have to give full credit to Lou Mongello for bringing this delectable morsel to my attention. If you don't know what this is, let me see if I can paint you a picture in words because the name doesn't do it justice. Scene: our hero sets off to the Studios at rope drop to go on a mission, OK 2, possibly 3 missions. 1: buy a special edition Jedi Mickey Mouse and Astromech droid with mouse ears for one of my best friend's soon to be step son, 2: ride Star Tours one last time before it goes down for rehab (and hallelujah for that, I am a fan and all but it has needed updating for at least 10 years, but I digress...) and 3: buy a carrot cake cookie. Mission 1 & 2 accomplished; on to 3. At 3.19 tax and all and the thing is the size of a Frisbee, it's worth making a visit to the Writer's Stop. The Writer's Stop is on the way to Star Tours just past the Sci-Fi Drive in. It is as one might guess by the punny name, a book store and what goes great with intellectuals and books? Coffee and incredible baked goods. Why Yes! Sounds fantastic. I'll have one of those and one of those. So to the cookie. Take two half inch thick, 6 to 8 inch in diameter disks of carrot cake and sandwich between them a decadent cream cheese icing. If I was guessing I would say the thing weighs in at a pound, a good 12 ounces at least. It was pure joy to all those who love some carrot cake. (And if you don't love some carrot cake and it's not because you have some kind of allergic reaction that would cause death...What is wrong with you? If your allergic reaction is not strong enough to cause death, this treat is really worth suffering through a little itchiness.) It fed five adults with one cookie; however, I bought four of them as well as one chocolate chip and one white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookie. What if I really liked it? I certainly wasn't going to get back on that bus and suffer the slings and arrows to go back, it's all about planning ahead. Anyway all that came in just under 20 bucks. I say that was the best deal I had gotten all day.

  1. I will say that the cookies travel well, so they'd be a great purchase on the last day if you have leftover snack credits. I will also say that they will totally derail a diet, so don't let your brother buy 4 of them at a time and don't let your mom talk you into taking home said large sack of delightful treats. :-)
