Raise your hand if you knew blog the post title was a Kenny Chensey song! Not I.
Anyway, the post isn’t about good country singers – it’s about Pepperidge Farm Milano cookies, their newest flavor, Key Lime.
Looking at the bag in the grocer’s shelf, we thought, mmmmmm, how could that be bad? Milano, mmmmm, not Alyssa though. Key lime, mmmmm. Chocolate, mmmmm. Great combination. Sold.
Opened the bag yesterday as part of our we planned an outdoor bbq party but it was so rainy and cold we stayed inside Mother’s Day dessert tray.
Everyone agreed they should be delish……BUT, not so fast. They were pretty bad. Not any lime flavor that we could detect and lo and behold, not any lime or lime-related ingredient. Natural flavors at the end of the ingredient list is the only thing we figure is how PF got to call these Key Lime, by adding a couple of drops of a key lime flavoring.
Bottom line, if you see these and think, wow that’d be great, pass. It’s too late now but in hindsight, I wish we had done a blind taste test to see if anyone not knowing they were marketed as lime could taste the lime. There’s a whiff of lime when you open the packaging, but that’s it.
Cold, dreary Monday. Did I say cold? How cold it it? So cold I have a fire going and am even contemplating turning the kitchen radiant heat on. By tomorrow they say it’ll hit 85 but have major thunderstorms so what good is the warmth without sunshine? Nothing, IMHO.
Have a great day. Here’s the Kenny Chesney song.
