Have You Seen This Cookie Trick?

Did anyone else not know about the amazing thing you can do with cookies and milk??? For years I've been dunking cookies in milk, and thought it was pretty great -- but it's not anywhere NEAR as great as using the cookies like a straw and drinking milk THROUGH them!! You bite off two ends, and it's gotta have some kind of chocolate coating, like a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie.

I believe you're onto something here... Folks everywhere start to talk banning plastic straws in restaurants and fast food places. A cookie-based sipping appliance just begs to be the replacement, don't it? :D

Aww it's a bummer I have so many food allergies, otherwise I'd have to give it a shot.

When I saw this subject line, I thought it was talking about the kind of cookies that your web browser uses, and I was going to come make a joke about chocolate chip or some such. Now I realize you're actually talking about cookies, and I'm all out of ideas. Except of course for the classic line.....

In Australia, this is called a "Tim-Tam slam". (It's on Youtube under this name.)

A Tim-Tam is a rectangular chocolate coated biscuit, and the idea is that you bite off the diagonally opposite corners and then use it as a straw to drink HOT coffee through! If you do it exactly right, it is delicious! :9: If you do it too slowly, the heat of the coffee melts the chocolate and the whole thing falls into your cup and makes an almighty mess... :mrgreen:

This is what Australians call an "art form".

When I saw the subject line, I thought it was going to be the same thing, or a new way to bake cookies to a certain perfection. It almost sounds gross sucking on a cookie though.

That's also kind of gross :lol: <laughing> . So the person who orders a Sprite first, is going to be inspired to create Cookie Sprite! Root beer, or Coke might not be that bad with cookies though, but a lemon lime cookie? :hmm:

I have actually had coffee based drinks through a cookie straw, like a hollow wafer tube with chocolate coating the inside. It was delicious!

I think you can still get straws here that are flavoured so your milk drink tastes like strawberry milk or chocolate milk - they were paper though so hot drinks wouldn't work.

Yeah me too!
I've never heard of a cookie straw before.

Although, I've seen someone actually bake a cookie cup (that works, and doesn't leak...for the most part...), and you fill it up with milk! It looks cool...'till you try to bite into it- predictably, the milk spills everywhere if you're not super-careful! Only a cookie-connoisseur could manage it...haha. :wink:


Yes, I've seen those specific straws sold at stores, Anne. I've tried them actually- they are very good! :9:

Haha! Yep, Beth's got it -- a "Tim-Tam Slam"! It's basically the same thing as that.

It sounds ridiculous, but I tried it and it's pretty pleasing! :wink: If you like your cookies a little softened with milk, that is. I will never go back to "dunking." :lol:
