In celebration of this oh, so important day in our history, I would like to present…wafer cookies. They actually don’t have anything to do with Cinco de Mayo except that I eat them, and I’m Hispanic, so there you go.
I used to love these when I was younger, but I remember we didn’t get them often, I think because I would finish them too quickly. Nothing’s changed. I’ve single-handedly (okay, I let Justin have a couple) finished a package in a couple of days. Justin is more picky about them. He prefers vanilla only, in their own special package, because he thinks otherwise the flavors mingle. I don’t really care, I just like the texture. Super crispy and perfectly artificially-flavored, they’re a steal at 99 cents a package. When you’re broke, craving sweets, and roaming the cookie aisle at HEB after 9:00 p.m., wafer cookies are the bomb.

Hi there mija,
Well, next to Pecan Sandies, these wafers are my favorite cookie too! (Like father, like daughter??). Keep up the good work. I played golf with Judy London today and she said to tell you hi, and I gave her your website addy. Maybe you will hear from her. Maybe mom and I will catch the Cinco de Mayo celebrations somewhere this weekend. Have a good one, Love, Dad and Mom
Jestin is right… the flavors WILL get mixed up. 🙂 I remember (with saying my first opinion) taking the vanilla and the chocolate one and eat them together to get that “swirl” effect. I prefer the vanilla ones too. However the red always had a place in my mexican heart too. 😉
Now I remember why I didn’t like Justin and Joey growing up! They are weird!! John and I would just eat the whole package!! Older brothers are still better than little “gral” brothers. Bah!
