For Ladybug

I saw these in the cafeteria at work and immediately thought of a great blogger-buddy, Ladybug. I bought one and while it tasted pretty good, it was kinda pricey. I paid $1.25 US for this cookie. It's hard to tell its dimensions from the picture so I'll tell you that it was 1 3/4" wide by 3/4" tall. But, regardless of price or taste, it's the name that got me.

You can't see from the picture that this is a chocolate-covered, fudgy cake cookie with a dryish peanut butter filling.

I do like the name, but the cookie sounds just terrible.

Wonder what inspired the company to call that cookie Ladybug? It's not like it looks like one. In fact, naming a cookie after any kind of BUG is probably not generally a good marketing idea.

Thanks for thinking of me, Squirl.

Y'know, now that I think about it, it's probably a GOOD thing that those cookies don't sound appealing. With all the PMS-induced hormones raging, I might be tempted to go on a chocolate binge.

I don't know why they'd name cookies after bugs, even ones with cute names, like Ladybug. There was something about that had fudgey goodness. I was expecting the peanut butter to be creamier, though.

But how was the packaging?

Mr B, it opened quite easily and appeared to keep the cookied intact and fresh. In this case, I would have to say that the packaging didn't suck.

Hooray for non-sucky packaging!

It can't be beat. Um, er, something like that.

It's prices like this that make me glad I'm not into chocolate!

Maybe the filling was "dryish" because it was old?
I won't even mention the greenish stuff I used to see in the vending machines where I used to work... oops, guess I just did.

Ooh, green stuff, Sierrabella? Ick!

In one of the places I once worked there was a vending machine in the factory, for the machinists to use. I ate my lunch there and once I ventured to get a rice krispie square--it was so old!!I've never seen something like that go bad before---yuck! But, those Ladybugs look tasty, not quite like a ladybug....mmmm chocolate and peanutbutter....

Effie, I love your profile pic! Vending machines can be pretty iffy (no pun on your name intended) when they're not used often enough. The Ladybug cookie was actually pretty good. Very chocolatey.

Looks pretty tasty to me. But then I am not too fussy when it comes to chocolate.

Way to take one for the team, there Squirl! I can't wait to tell everyone, "Yeah, I have a friend named Squirl who even ate a ladybug once just to honor another friend. That's loyalty!" or something like that.

Have to say I'd take a pass on that one, despite its name.

And Sierrabella, thanks for sharing the vending machine grossness: Eeeww!!!

thshmom, yeah, peanut butter cups are better and cheaper.

Kitty, tell like it is, sistah!

Kranki, they really weren't bad. Just overpriced and the peanut wasn't creamy as I'd hoped.

Eclectic, any sacrifice for you guys. :-) I guess it depends what kind of ladybug you eat. Hope Bucky doesn't see that comment. I'll never hear the end of it.
