Last week, while absolutely nobody was in DC, my friend Lindsay, who I have known since middle school, was in town from Milwaukee to dog-sit for one of the folks who had split town. Luckily, I was around, so she and I went to Teaism for lunch.
While we were there, we got some chocolate dessert. Teaism’s salty oat cookie is semi-famous in DC, so we picked up a chocolate salty oat cookie to share.
As evidenced by this picture, the oats make up a heaping portion of this cookie. As also evidenced by this picture, there is some coarse salt sprinkled on top, yet this doesn’t come through much in the taste. The chocolate taste is also a tad weak, and is really only strong when you get a chunk of a super-smooth semi sweet chocolate. There is, however, a very clear coconut taste in this cookie – Lindsay agreed. I would personally prefer a softer cookie with more chocolate chunks, but for $2, this is a fairly large cookie that tastes alright.
Have you met up with any old friends recently? Did you eat chocolate while doing so?
