Maybe I wasn’t meant to have them, anyway. But I absolutely tossed these cookies.
I know. I shouldn’t have grabbed the little cup of peanut butter cookies at the checkout counter, where overpriced snacks and sweets tempt impulse buyers. I surely didn't need the extra calories.
Still, I was hungry after traversing dozens of aisles in the big-box mega-store. So I snatched up the Go-Pack cup of Nabisco Nutter Butter Bites at the WalMart cashier station.
And look what I found, when I opened the container.
Right to the trash. Even my dog didn’t want ‘em.
I have to wonder how the Nutter Butter Bites ended up in one giant wad inside the sealed cup. Was it a mishap in Nabisco's baking process, a problem with packaging, trouble with transport, or a too-warm warehousing situation with WalMart?
Never mind. The cookies were inedible.
Did I return the nasty cookies for a refund?
Nope, I didn’t. Here’s why. By the time I opened the container, we were several miles from the store. It would have cost me considerably more than the $1 purchase price, just to burn gas for the return trip. And the container was open by then. How would I prove the morsels didn’t just melt in my hot car?
But they didn’t. And they were gross.
I’m a long-time peanut butter lover. And yet, I suspect my peanut butter cookie cravings will not return anytime soon.
