October 15, 2008 - R.I.P. Raspberry Filled Archway Cookies

It is a sad time for me. My favorite binge food of all time will soon cease to exist. The folks that bought Archway over 10 years ago filed for bankruptcy. Of course, some of the executives at Specialty Foods will possibly be going to prison for cooking the books. I can only assume they studied at the same business school as former executives of Tyco and Enron.

There is nothing better than an Archway Raspberry Filled Cookie. I can eat a whole pack in one sitting. What is special about Archway cookies is that it was my FIRST binge food that I can remember. Grandma and Grandpa used to have them and I could eat the whole package. Once I became an adult I learned not to binge on the cookies so I never bought them. It is the ONE food that I have not binged on consistently in the past 10 years.

Tonight I will buy my last package of Archway cookies. I plan on taking 2 out and freezing the rest in individual packages for special treats.

Changing the subject…

I went for my bi-monthly check today. I gain a half pound as I expected before going in, but also as expected it was water weight. I lost 1.5 pounds of fat. I realized today that at the end of this month I will be at seven months of my lifestyle change. I think I am doing quite well!

I will get new blood tests next week so the physician can check to see what changes have occurred in my cholesterol, “sugar”, etc. It will be interesting to see those results.

Til Next Week, when I will talk about TEA!

Auntie... why is mother crying hysterically about Archway going down the tank?

I mean, realllly.... its not the end of the world. And, its not like it is the end of liver treats, or a nice rib bone. Really, the woman is quite daft. I just told her to take it on the chin, but she didn't see much humor in that?

What are these raspberry cookies that you speak?

And, I doo hope you invite me to tea next week.
