When I look back on my childhood, there are few constants that pop up: friends, family, and food. Growing up in an Italian family, food always brings everyone together.
One of the memories that I look back on often were all the dinners we had at my grandfather’s house. They always went the same way. Family gathered at Pop Pop’s house. Kids played in the basement. Dinner was served. And the kids went back to play. But then there was a special moment. When I would walk into the kitchen and grab a little treat for after dinner.
And they were always there. A cookie jar filled with OREO cookies. Armed with a glass of milk, I would sit at the kitchen table and dunk my OREO cookies. And soon enough, my grandfather would sit down with me. With his own stack of OREO cookies and glass of milk.
Week after week, we would have our little time at the table together over a glass of milk and stack of OREO cookies. Now that he has been gone for a few years, I think back on those moments more often. And I started the same little tradition with my own kids.
To start them off, I had to find out which OREO cookie was their favorite. When I was a kid, I had one option: Original. Now? The options are endless but we stuck with the basics: Original, Golden, and Double Stuff. I grabbed our supplies at our local Redner’s Markets.
To figure out which were our favorites, we had ourselves a little OREO Challenge.
We tried one of each flavor and recorded our answers on our printable OREO Challenge chart. And you know what? We all love Original OREO cookies!
And now that we have our favorite stocked in our cookie jar, it’s time to get our dunk on. And this is where we differ. Over the years, I’ve perfected my dunk. I don’t like to get messy so I use a fork to dunk my OREO cookies.
But the kids? They love to go old school and dunk away!
And sometimes they get a little adventurous and have some fun with their dunking! It’s ok to let the kids be a little messy sometimes.
