Wow, randomizer. I hate you. This is a nightmare. ...Well, not for my own voting, because I can eliminate most of these out of hand: I've never tried any Trader Joe's cookies, I hate raisins, and while I'll sample the occasional stunt Oreo for Revolting Snacks, they're not something we have in the house on the reg. I'd have to go Frosted Animal; Nabisco Ginger Snaps AND Newman's Own Ginger Os; Tim Tams; and the humble chewy Chips Ahoy, just because Dirk loves them and we always have a tray around the house.

As for what gets through, I have no damn idea, but I think we can probably wave original Oreos and one of these TJ's through based on the fervor of the nomination round, along with Mallomars (probably only here on a technicality, but extremely popular) and Fig Newtons. But what's the fifth? Mint Milanos? Maybe. Fudge Sticks? Maybe. My prediction: Double Stuf, or good old reliable (if crappy) Chips Ahoy. -- Sarah D. Bunting


Okay, this is not the time to get into the chewy/soft-baked debate. NOT THE TIME.

Fig Newtons? Ramona Quimby said they were filled with worms and even though I was old enough to know better then and today, I still don't disagree.

Oreo's original? They're fighting it out with Double Stuffs in the finals, so we can move along.

Pep Farm Mint Milanos? Remind me of a horrible ex, so moving along.

Keebler Fudge Sticks were another opportunity for amateur cookie dissection and I adore them and I don't know what I've been doing the last 20 years of my life not eating them.

Mallomars. So, I freaking LOVE these cookies. I don't know if they are better or worse or the lovely same as Pinwheels but I don't care. I have time to compare and they SHOULD move through because they are chocolate and cookie and marshmallow that has been fluffed more than a porn star. Eat them eat them now.

If you haven't had Trader Joe's Peppermint Joe Joe's with ACTUAL CANDY CANES CRUSHED INTO THE FILLING? You haven't ever eaten a cookie in your life. Shh. Just -- SHHHT! No, NO, shut up, because you haven't. (Dr. Mathra would feel the same about the dark chocolate covered peppermint Joe Joe's but between you and me, I think the couverture is overkill.)

Those are my feelings. My predictions are: Oreo's, Oreo Double Stuffs, Pep Farm Mint Milano's of a horrible ex, Fig Newtons, and Chips Ahoy Chewy. --Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic
