Okay, so I was lucky enough to get picked for this BzzCampaign. Seriously, cookies? Sign me up! Right?

Well, I got my BzzKit the other day. I got TWO packages of Kroger's new "Truly Awesome Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies". I was already pretty excited. I opened up a box and was immediately a little disappointed. There are only 8 cookies in a box. Not really many for the size of box they're in. But they're a good size, definitely bigger than most of the packaged cookies out there. Also, they were a bit more crumbly than they looked on the box and in pictures. Not a big deal, really, but not quite what I was expecting.

I took my first bite. They weren't "truly awesome". I was further disappointed. Don't get me wrong, they were good. They had the crunch of a cookie that you'd baked a couple days before. They just weren't amazing. And then I got to the chocolate chips. Oh my. The chocolate chips in these things are AMAZING! Seriously, they're the best part of the cookie.

In order to get some other opinions, I gave my brother, sister-in-law, and all three kids a cookie to try. Everyone agreed that the cookie part was okay, but the chocolate chips were definitely the best part.

So, while they may not really be "Truly Awesome", they're still really good. And I will certainly be buying some in the future. If you really like chocolate, I'd give them a try.

"Truly Awesome Homestyle Chocolate Chip Cookies" are available at Kroger, Fred Meyer, and Ralph's. (You may also be able to find them in other Kroger Brand Family stores, such as Dillons, Hilander, City Market, Smith's, King Soopers, Fry's, Baker's, and Scott's. But I'm not 100% on that.)

I signed up for this BzzCampaign wondering if Dakota would even eat the food. She can be kind of picky when it comes to her food, so I was crossing my fingers on this one.

When I got the food, she was reluctant to try it. I had to hand feed her the first few bites. After she got a taste, she went to town on the food I put in font of her. After she finished it, she frantically sniffed the floor, trying to find some more. I have to admit, I gave her another handful. For the next few days, she gobbled the food up as soon as it was set in front of her. I was happy she liked it so much.

Well, in the last couple days, she hasn't been gobbling it up so readily. In fact, she'll let it sit there until she's just too hungry to ignore it. I don't know if she gt tired of it, or if she's just mad that she hasn't been getting her wet food lately and just being the usual picky princess diva she usually is. I'm going to try hand feeding her tomorrow and seeing how she does with it, but I have a feeling she'll be wolfing it down again in a few days time. Especially if she gets some wet food before then.

Well, I'm a little closer to finishing. I think I need to really buckle down this weekend and try to catch up. I might actually stay up really late all weekend. It seems like I get a burst of inspiration late at night.
