The smell of freshly baked cookies lured me in to a quaint cookie shop in Castle Towers called Mrs Fields. This is not the first time these aromas had invited me for a taste, but this certainly was the first time I gave in, and I am most certainly glad I did.
As tempted as I was, the display of cookies left me at a loss. I had no idea where to begin. Thankfully the friendly staff behind the counter offered to give me tips of what I would expect from each of the choices.
There are large, medium and small cookies to choose from, and then there are plain ones and quite colourful ones. Most of all, there are plenty of flavours to choose from.
The purchase of the day for me was the chocolate lovers nibbler (10 for $6.95), a cookie that is every chocolate lovers dream. The melt in the mouth goodness of this one left me wanting more, and yes I did get more opting to get a bagful to take home to enjoy with a cup of tea and a book in hand.
I know the smell of freshly baked cookies will lure me again and again to this sinful yet delightful indulgence, but if it's a cookie, I now believe it should only be like Mrs Fields, perfect both in flavour and texture.
