So, this time, let’s be useful to each other and help ourselves with two of the ten fascinating facts about cookies. *winks*

Well, we will start off with a definition of cookies. According to Wikipedia, a cookie is a “small, flat, baked treat, usually containing flour, eggs, sugar, and either butter or cooking oil, and often including ingredients such as raisins, oats, or chocolate chips.” One of the fascinating facts about cookies is the 'racist' Mallomars. Mallomars are a perfect combination of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate. They are only produced during the cold times, around September-May. These cookies are tasty… and controversial too. In France, Mallomars are called ‘negro kisses’ while in Denmark, it is referred to as ‘negro bun’. In Belgium, Mallomars are known as ‘negress’ breasts’. As stated by D. Prinz in the website ‘On the Chocolate Trail’, “powers such as Belgium, Holland, and Germany noted the blackness of chocolate to emphasize the conquest of natives in their colonial empires.”

I think all of us know about the Cookie Monster. “I’m sorry but I don’t know who that is.” *sighs* Ok, I’ll tell you. Cookie Monster is a “blue googly-eyed Muppet on the long-running children's television show Sesame Street.” He is well known for his famous phrases such as ‘Me eat cookie!’, ‘Me want cookie!’, and ‘Om nom nom nom!” He is called the ‘Cookie Monster’, but in reality, before he eats his first cookie, his name is Sid. In 2006, because of the rapid growth of childhood obesity, Cookie Monster raises awareness to healthy eating habits through his song “A Cookie is A Sometimes Food”. Good guy Cookie Monster!
