I never had them before, but the statements on the box just lured me in.
‘Quebec’s favourite since 1927'
Wow! What a cookie, right?
It states further on the front panel of the box they are ‘enrobed’ with pure chocolate!
ENROBED. Not dipped, not drenched, not smothered
(hmm, drenched and smothered, if it were a person rather than
a cookie, that could be disturbing...or maybe not, could be
kinda kinky, and in that case replace the 'hmm' with a 'mmm'. Wait, did I just say that out loud?), BUT, <(and I’m not going to even comment on that...
oh yes I am, you know perfectly well I would, because, add another ‘T’, and that could be part of the disturbing/kinky drenching and smothering. Not so, though, if they were ‘enrobed’.) enrobed, which makes it ever so much classier, am I correct? Mmmmmmmhmmm!
On the side of the box, it tells us they were ‘created by the Viau family in 1927, that irresistibly sinful <(yes, that is what it says, ‘sinful’. I wonder if Catholics must confess and be required to do some hailing of Mary’s for eating them? It also reflects back to the disturbingly/kinky, but come on, is that actually a sin?) taste of Dare Pure Chocolate Whippets has been Quebec’s favourite cookie for generations!’
It goes on to say ‘Whippet is a heavenly (hey, maybe that makes up for the sinful part, so scratch the hail of Mary’s) cloud-like marshmallow cookie that is ‘smothered’ (ok, so it actually does state that. Guess I should have read the entire labeling before commenting. Meh.) , in a pure dark chocolate for a taste that is sure to satisfy your every desire.’
That’s a pretty big order. Satisfy my EVERY desire?
I honestly don’t think so. It’s just advertising lies. And I bought it.
They did, however, satisfy my desire for a cookie. With tea. Of course.
I never gave it a thought, I hope they are not made of dog!?! Geddit? Dog?
Oh, and never ever Whip pets (I know, bad pun), or people, either. Unless they are into that sort of thing because they are kinky and like butts smothered in pure chocolate. And that was completely uncalled for. *slaps own hands* you naughty, naughty girl!
So, here’s a song to go along whippet (did you get that one? 'Whippet' substituted for 'with it'? Was it that bad? Do I have to 'splain everything? *sigh*)
Anyway, it's rather appropriate, don't you think?
News flash! This just in (not really. I just now noticed it)! On the other side of the box where it lists the ingredients (of which there are many), though it was prepared in a ‘peanut free facility’, it says ™Dare Foods, Spartanburg, SC and then 'Product of Canada.' So South Carolina is in Canada? That’s news to me!
(Actually, they have plants in both countries, and they are quite tasty. The cookies not the plants....although I really don't know, I've never licked that sort of plant....)
OK, I'm finished now.
