I stole a box of Oreos from the Colemans when I was a minor. I add the age clarification in the event the authorities want to haul me in on grand theft charges. And you can read the extended version of this story in my baking memoir My Life From Scratch. See how I've managed to keep myself out of jail AND plug my book in just two sentences?
It took a minute to decide whether to shove the cellophane wrapped treasure under my sweatshirt. In the end, there was only one sane decision. Grab and run.
Now, had those Oreos been chocolate covered, well that's another matter entirely. I'd not have hesitated for a minute. Not even for a second. A rational girl doesn't second guess petty theft of ANYTHING chocolate covered. As long as you lift the stuff from a very nice neighbor. Can't have you manacled in front of the Jiffy Mart for palming a package of Twix now, can we?
Add mint to the mix and I'd even break into an armored vehicle to get at them.
Or just make them at home.
