Are These Santa Cookies Obscene Or An Optical Illusion?

Is this a case of an optical illusion or truly some ‘kinky boots?’

Some moms decided Santa’s boots depicted on a set of ‘Santa Dipped Chocolate Sandwich Cookies’ from Target look like the big man’s junk set out for all to see.

Others though just see some snow boots (with some well-placed frosting).

The New York Post spoke to one mom, Suzie Fromer, who called the cookies a “definite design fail” and added, “I would not send these to school.”

After sharing a photo of the treats on her Facebook page as a joke, one of Fromer’s mom pals asked, “What the hell is Santa’s penis doing there?”

Nicole Miller of Knoxville, Tennessee, initially loved the cookies telling a Facebook group “Such a great treat to have on hand for parties.” But after a friend pointed out Santa’s boots, Miller admitted she “couldn’t unsee” them.

But any naughty interpretation of the snow boots was news to Target.

“We have not received any feedback directly on this item,” said Target in a statement to the New York Post. “The design is intended to represent Santa’s boots. We appreciate the feedback and will take it into consideration moving forward.”

In any case, the optical illusion continues on Twitter where some see what they want to see while others think Target moms have too much time on their hands.

Let me know what you think, readers? Are those boots or does Santa look happy to see you?

Creme, Creme, And Nothing But The Creme

Just yesterday, I was at the grocery store and while standing at the check-out, I noticed a display of Oreos.

Now, I don’t do cookies much, but I have long been aware of “Double Stuff” Oreos. But sitting right next to the pure sugar concoction was “Mega Stuff” Oreos.


And then, this morning while perusing my fellow bloggers, kenneth in the 212 shares the above.


Looking for the perfect wine to pair with your Girl Scout cookie?

To make Girl Scout cookies truly an adult treat, Kris Margerum, Wine Director at Napa Valley’s inn and Michelin-starred restaurant Auberge du Soleil, has provided wine pairings for each cookie sold by the Girl Scouts.

“Even the simplest sweets can be paired with a fine wine,” said Margerum. “I love pairing confections with exquisite vintages. They shape the flavor and take the simple experience of enjoying a cookie to an entirely new level of enjoyment.”

For instance, Margerum recommends the 2007 Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs Sparkling Wine to accompany Trefoils. The creamy richness of the shortbread is balanced by the fresh lively notes of the Sparkling Wine.
