Appetizing April: A DDS Food Face-Off, The Winner

And the winner of the 2014 DDS Food Face-off is…


Is anyone genuinely surprised by this result? The gooey, chocolate-y deliciousness that is this cookie has always been there for me when I need a sugar fix or as the final course in an extended FoCo dinner. We all need comfort food while at college, and this certainly does the trick for those of us with a major sweet tooth (an affliction my entire family struggles with). While some prefer crispier chocolate chip cookies making FoCo’s version not to their taste, it can be hard to resist melted chocolate (or cheese for that matter – see our runner-up).

The cookies were a strong contender from the start and no doubt the favorite. Despite this, the Brie and Apple sandwich put up a strong fight and in the final showdown maintained 39% of the votes.

Help me celebrate the cookie’s victory by indulging in one (or seven) this week!
