"I can't believe you have the NERVE to slander these delicacies."

Posted on

On Sunday, The Great Grocery Store Cookie War of 2017 commenced with the tweet heard 'round the world:

its that time of year again when stores sell these bottom of the barrel, flavorless piece of shit things they have… https://t.co/bZMJJmasLx

Taylor Haugen, a 21-year-old from Wisconsin, called the cookies "bottom of the barrel, flavorless piece of shit things they have the nerve to call cookies."

People could not believe the DISRESPECT.

"I will never change my opinion on them," she said. "Though I don't think I'll voice my opinions on other baked goods anymore."
