People Can’t Stop Fighting Over Whether These Grocery Store Cookies Are Gross Or Amazing

“I can’t believe you have the NERVE to slander these delicacies.”

1. If you’ve ever been to a grocery store, you’ve probably eaten these cookies at least a few times.

You know, the super soft sugar cookies topped with like an inch of frosting.

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

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.”

3. People could not believe the DISRESPECT.

18. Haugen told BuzzFeed News she “wasn’t planning on causing WWIII,” but she’s sticking by her beliefs.

“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.”

  1. Time to weigh in: These cookies are...
    1. AMAZING, PERFECT, A DELICACY OF THE GODS.
    2. A disgusting excuse for a cookie. Fight me.
    3. I have alternative feelings about those cookies that I will share in the comments.
