Just had a Scotch egg from a local hot dog and hamburger joint that's ran by hippies. Good stuff I must say. No photos though, I ate it before I could take a photo.

Having seen this on tv: [video]http://www.cmt.com/videos/top-secret-recipe-ep-106/1674570/full-episode.jhtml[/video]

I bought this:



To see what the hubbub was about. Well..I didn't really see it..it was good but I could get better cookies from the grocery store bakery for the same price. Not only that, but I would get a hell of a lot more of them.

I wonder if the ones sold in the grocery store are the "real deal" or if Mrs. Fields pulled a "reeses peanut butter" and just repackage a generic cookie in a fancy ass box....:hmm:

Yeah, uh, the shelf-stable, available-in-a-grocery-store-aisle-in-a-box cookies are not the cookies they are referring to.
I took one look of an unwrapped cookie and sadly figured as much. :( the closest mrs. Fields stores are in (of course, because every cool store is there...) philly and pittsburgh malls.

I might try the mail order/online service and see if they'll let me order just chocolate chip cookies.

What is that? Marshmallow fluff? Marshmallow fluff does not a s'more make. Break out the real marshmallows and a blow torch!!

Still looks tasty, though!

Not fluff. I hate Fluff, so I wouldn't enjoyed it if that were the case. We put that tub of marshmallows in the oven for a bit. I got a square with some of the browned toasted marshmallow of the top, and that was the best.
