Taking on the Treats Truck One Treat at a Time: Chocolate Chipper with Nuts

With Brownie far away in Atlanta, I decided to use this opportunity to eat a nutty treat. Ok, so maybe I did it before she left, on a whim, as I walked by, but whatever, that's not the point. Last week, unbeknownst to either of us, Sugar and the lovely Kim were featured on channel 7 AND channel 25. The line, and a Kwik Meal chicken pita after the

This was line that greeted me. It took 45 minutes. I was very hungry. Luckily Kim was very smart, or I got lucky, and Sugar was parked on the downtown side of 45th, instead of the usual uptown side. Therefore, he was right next to cart nirvana, aka Kwik Meal. I got to get a chicken pita without having to get out of line!!! I do believe that's called a jackpot. The Kwik Meal people seemed quite amused by the whole situation.

Then I waited. and waited. The most notable situation occurred. There was an insane line for treats, but no line for chicken and rice. My, my, how the tables have turned. As you can see, my patience paid off and I was able to get a nutty treat. People thought I was nuts, since I waited in a hella long line just for one cookie, but I only had a fiver on me and I wasn't getting treats for the whole office (ahem, other people on line getting whole boxes of treats!)

This is the actual cookie I procured. (I know, I need to practice more on my food porn) I had never had a chocolate chipper, and it was delicious. It's a crunchy outside, chewy inside cookie, which is what I prefer. The chocolate-dough-nuts proportion was spot on. The dough itself was delicious, just the right amounts of brown sugar and vanilla. The nuts are pecans, and are very secure in the dough. I hate when I eat a nutty cookies and nut bits start falling everywhere. It would have been better if I warmed it up a bit before eating since that would make the chocolate all melty, but I couldn't hold out any longer. Yet another winner from the Treats Truck.
