The N Cookie AA Semifinal, Round 5

Submitted by on July 30, 2014 – 8:34 AM8 Comments


Interesting: Nutter Butters up against their GS counterpart: Do-Si-Dos. Huh.

(Not sure what’s going on here? Check out the N Cookie AA FAQ.)

I don’t care what happens to either of them, I just want Soft Batch to die. If I want to pick a winner, I’ll throw my lot in for my beloved Sausalito, but, because it would be an awesome win, I might actually have to push fortune cookies.
Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic


Hmm. I’m pretty sure my pick, fortune cookies, finishes dead last, but beyond that I can’t quite predict the finishers. The Nutter Butter would have a shot if the randomizer hadn’t coughed up another cannibalization special and put the Do-Si-Do in here, but I’m going to call it for the Sausalito. — Sarah D. Bunting

    Team Fortune Cookie all the way!

    And my morning fortune from A clean conscience is a soft pillow.

    Die Soft Batch Die!

  • Kristin 2 the Kristin Boogaloo says:

    I don’t understand the philistine voting for Nutter Butter (the gross fake cookie) over the Do-Si-Do (its far superior and charitably inclined cousin.

    P.E.O.P.L.E. Fight the commercial power, wouldja?

    Fortune cookie says: “S/he who eats soft batch cookies is doomed to regurgitate ground up raisins all day.”

    Fortune cookie also says: “Nutter butter lovers better love ‘nuther better…cookie.”


  • Ben says:

    Seriously. I want Sausalito to take it, but more than anything I just want to see Soft Batch crash and burn.

    I’m shocked by the fortune cookie showing though. Inoffensive yes. Really something you seek out over other cookies…? Maybe soft bletch, but that’s a bar so low mice trip over it.

  • ferretrick says:

    cayenne, that made my morning.

  • Claire says:

    I haven’t actually eaten a Nutter Butter in at least a decade, but I also have such specific memories centered around them (like, sitting in the school library in 2nd grade eating them while my mom went to staff meetings) that they get my vote.
