Zoo fun!

Went to the Detroit Zoo today with Carrie and Jay. My parents got us a membership for Christmas. I've always thought Zoos were depressing, but then we went about a year an a half ago on a work outing--and it was pretty, and relaxing, and fun (yes, I said fun. lol. we all know how sparingly I use that word) we saw a red panda and the arctic ring of life display and the butterfly/aviary and penguin areas!

food orgasm

One of my co-workers brought in Trader Joe's Candy Cane Joe-Joe's. I am not an Oreo fan. I am not a store-bought cookie fan in general, but Oreos, with their grainy, lardy insides, are particularly repellent.

However, I am a sucker for a peppermint and chocolate combo AND for limited edition or holiday treats. While the Joe-Joe's look like Oreos, they surpass them in yuminess---to the nth degree!!!!!!!!!! The chocolate cookie was Oreo-level quality, but what really shines is the pepperminty inside. The filling is sweet, light, and vanilla-y--not lardy at all. The BEST part is the candy cane crush

The Candy Cane Joe-Joe's cost $2.50-2.99 at Trader Joe's. I would definitely buy them again and for all of my family and friends. YUM!

World AIDS Day
