I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life, done many things I wish I could take back. I know a lot of people who try to by sayings such as “live with no regrets”. That’s a nice idea, but a recent incident involving a pack of Nutter Butter Bites showed me that doing so is beyond me…I had a stash of bite size Nabisco Cookies: Oreos, Chips-Ahoy, and Nutter Butters. I don’t think I need to tell anyone that nutter butters are the best of the bunch (feel free to
be wrong debate in the comments). I was reaching for a pack myself when my roommate Tom asked me to throw him one. I blindly tossed a pack of cookies that just so happened to be nutter butters – my last pack of nutter butters. F*#&. I was about to offer the trade when Tom began to wax nostalgic about how good nutter butter’s were – I was too late.
Nutter Butters are classics and nearly perfect in all their forms. A peanut buttery biscuit with a sweeter slighty grainy peanut butter creme. My rating will encompasses all varieties, but there are two things keeping Nutter Butter’s from getting that better than perfect score.
1. Hydrogenated oils - seriously Nabisco, you took them out of Oreos
So, “no regrets”? That’s a bull-shit Mantra, here’s what I’m going with instead, “Always check your box” (for broader application) and “protect your Nutter Butters” (that’s pretty damned direct). I’ve acquired more of the cookies since the incident, but I’m still missing that pack, and I probably always will.
