The Vine: December 26, 2008
This one is for you and the readers. Last summer I was studying abroad in Italy for a month and discovered these awesome little cookies in the grocery stores there. It's pretty much my favorite snack now. I smuggled a bunch back into the States, but even after careful hoarding my stash is now empty.
The silliest thing is, I opened the last package (which I then threw away) and stored the cookies in a more reliable package months ago.Now I cannot remember what the name cookies are and I've been searching everywhere online for them. The brand had a few varieties (all digestive cookies) but I'm pretty sure that my cookies were in a green package, and the cookies themselves were little grain balls somehow cemented together into cookie shape. They are not the McVities cookies.
A friend who goes to NYU says that there is an international food store near her campus that sells these cookies for around $10 a pop. The grocery store in Italy I bought them from is Esse Lunga, but they probably have them in most stores there (probably Coop also). If anyone can help, please let me know! Thanks.

I'm a Danish butter-cookie girl myself these days, so I'm no help — but I'm pretty sure one of the readers will know what you mean, especially at this cookie-centric time of year.
