Before Brownie flew the coop, her and I met for a Biriyani Cart lunch. We chose to split a lamb, chicken and rice combo, then walk around the corner for a little treat. With no new specials, we picked out a regular item, the chocolate trucker. Little did we know what would happen next...
Seeing as it was the 45th Street location, the Midtown West line was a long as usual, and with time ticking away, we had to take turns waiting and eating. I ate first.
"Brownie?" "Yes, Blondie?" "Um, this is sort of spicy." "Huh?" "My mouth is en fuego. I don't think I can feel my lips anymore."
We should have thought about it, but we didn't. That lamb/chicken/rice/hot-hot-hot sauce combo set both of our mouths aflame. Did we forfeit getting a treat? NEVER!!! Treat in hand, or on lap if you will, we ate and pondered.
We could both taste the chocolate in the soft cookies, and equally found the trucker to be a welcome cooling sensation. The vanilla insides weren't strong enough to cut the spice, but having gotten this before, I remember it a mix between regular frosting and the crème in a certain sandwich cookie. As plain vanilla, and when eating regular non-spicy food, I find it a bit too sweet for my liking. Brownie believes there is more insides now than when the trucker first appeared on regular rotation. Whether or not this is a good thing, I do believe that the chewy and moist cookie top and bottom are actually the best part of all the truckers.
