ALDI Specially Selected Chocolate Coated Butter Cookies

This is basically just an update on the previously reviewed ALDI chocolate coated butter cookies.  For whatever reasons companies do these things, ALDI has renamed and slightly changed the package of these still great cookies.  The ALDI “Cafe Bistro” name has given way to the ALDI “Specially Selected” name.  Most importantly, the same really really good chocolate coating is still on the same unlikely butter cookie.  The combination still makes these one of the best cookies on any grocery shelf.

$1.99 wasn’t too much to lose.  With a flavor combo like this on the bag, I couldn’t leave them on the shelf.  Curiosity got the better part of me.  Maybe it was the worst part, because it sure didn’t turn out so well.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Creepy – African Painted Dog – Photography

08/17/2015

I’m not sure whether this is creepy or just downright scary.  As creepy or scary as some might find this picture, the really scary thing is, this is another endangered species.  Pretty soon we’ll be the only things left on the planet.  And that, really creeps me out.

And a bonus image below since the guy above was a little camera-shy, slipping under the water too quickly, making my only opportunity a rather long distance photo.
