At first, I thought Pat’s poem was about peanut butter Oreos (the opening and closing couplets are the “wafers” surrounding a creamy pb middle):
But Pat says his poem is actually about these, which are his favorite:
Of course, he admits that if peanut butter cookies aren’t available, Oreos will do. 🙂
Just to be safe, I say we eat Oreos AND peanut butter cookies AND Snickers to build our poetic prowess.
But I can’t help thinking that for a poet of such brilliance, unparalleled rapier wit and prodigious output, there MUST be yet another treat he regularly consumes to keep in tippy top versifying shape. We will continue to investigate. Stay tuned. 🙂
Now, regarding Oreos, some matters of pressing importance:
1. To dunk or not to dunk?
2. Do you separate the wafers and eat the filling first, or bite into the cookie as is?
3. Are you a traditionalist, or do you go for any of the other flavors (Neopolitan, Banana Split, Blizzard, Cookie Dough,etc.)

The beautiful and gifted Renée La Tulippe is hosting this week’s Roundup at No Water River. Do take her some peanut butter cookies and Oreos (probably not available in Italy) and check out the full menu of poetic goodies on today’s menu. Ciao Bella!
