Back when I thought wine only came in two flavors -- red and white -- and cheese was either white or yellow, I still managed to consider myself something of a connoisseur. That's because -- despite all the hype and hegemony of Oreos -- I knew that Hydrox cookies were better.
Oh sure, you may be one of those people who thought of Hydrox as the cheap knock-off that your mom bought to save money. I once believed that too. But then the taste of the little off-brand cookies converted me. In my eight- or nine-year-old mind, I became a cookie expert. I was happy to share my sandwich cookie wisdom with anyone who asked. I'm sure no one ever asked, but I was eager to spread the news anyway.
