Foods you eat strangely

I do that exact same thing with triscuts. I also eat a 3 muskateers by eating the side panels of chocolate off all the way around, the I pick the top off, trying to get as big of a section as possible,
then the bottom thin layer of chocolate and then the fluffy chocolate I eat bite by bite.

And I sometimes will pull a grilled cheese sandwich apart so that I can put the melted cheese
side directly on my tongue, it's a texture and taste thing.

I would do that with red vine licorice ropes. Bite off the ends and then drink through it like a straw...never considered a pretzel though....hmmm..

Van deKamps cookies

Jody and all other VdK family members, let me tell you how I stumbled on this website and thread. I was searching for VdK dutch girl sugar cookies! I haven't seen them in years (and as it is this thread is a couple of years old so I hope you and your other family members will still get this). The sugar cookies were my mother's favorite non-chocolate cookie. And so they became a favorite of mine.
I hope that if you and the other family members are interested that you will truly think about putting an old family recipe book together of all the old favorites because I have never tasted another cookie like that one ....and from the sounds of these posts that was the case with a number of VdK bakery goods.
Please, please, please think about searching for those recipes and giving that gift to the chowhounds of the world that remember those incredibly good treats. I would definitely buy that cookbook. And as for not being sure how to convert those recipes, really there are people that can help with that. Please think about it. : )
