This past week while grocery shopping, I decided to pick up a few different options for after school snacks for the kids. One that they’re always requesting, OREO® Cookies! They love it when I give them a glass of cold milk along with a handful of cookies for dipping. They came home from school recently, and as we sat enjoying this particular snack, it reminded me of my own childhood and the first time my mom bought these cookies, way back when.
Us kids were beyond excited, making a beeline for the table so we could test them out, but mom made us wait, lined up a glass of milk for each of us and explained that nothing was better than dipping cookies in milk!
We were skeptical at first, but we decided to give it a try, to humor mom and not ruin the chances of her not buying them again in the future. Sure enough, it was a delicious combination! The trick was letting the cookies submerge in the milk just long enough to get them soft, and then eat them before they fell apart. This is an art that we’ve perfected over the years, and one I’ve been sure to teach my own kids now that they’re old enough to master it.
It doesn’t matter how young or old you are, dunking an OREO® in a tall glass of ice cold milk is so much fun, not to mention yummy! To make dunking your favorite creme-filled treat even more enjoyable, the folks behind OREO® are hosting the OREO® Dunk Challenge!
