well, the place where i get my cookies also does an oatmeal cranberry cookie, and it's quite good.
these cookies are pretty big, so i usually only eat half - my kids eat the rest when i get home.
but seriously rumrunn..., what's wrong with a cookie?
on a 2 hour ride, it's not like i need "serious" ride food - i could do the ride with nothing. that's why i figured i could count it as recovery food.
the cookie motivates me - i look forward to it. i'm about to head out in a few minutes, and i'm thinking i might get the peanut butter one today.
