YAMU Loves: Cookies from Subway.

We usually review places, but in this YAMU Loves feature we'll highlight some of our favorite food and drink around the city.

It's safe to say that our generation has experienced a spectacular boom in the dessert industry, with a cafe or a home baker popping up everywhere, every day [Editor's Note: this is not literally true, but there has been a boom]. People flock to these cafes and restaurants to try the desserts, the cafes are happy, cavities are had, dentists make money: it's a win-win situation really. But of course how many places have we come across so far that actually serve up a good, chewy cookie? 

Aside from the bourgeoisie bakeries that cater to the dessert connoisseurs, or the quirky cafes that dish out dry cakes, in a sudden turn of events the Perfect Cookie resides quietly atop a glass shelf on the counter of nowhere else but Subway.

I know. I was shocked, too.

*Pictured above: (From left to right) Chocolate Chip Cookie, Double Chocolate Chip Cookie, White Chip & Macadamia Nut Cookie.

They've got three types of cookies that are roughly the size of your palm and are on sale for Rs. 100. It's safe to say that these are probably mass-produced without being tended to by the loving touch of an in-house chef, but what to do. [Editor's Note: these cookies are not mass produced. Sarah thinks mass-produced means 'for the masses' and tells anyone that disagrees that 'you are mass produced'. I assume these cookies are baked fresh, as is their bread]As long as the taste buds are happy and you get your money's worth there's nothing to cry about.

I suppose this post is blasphemy in the eyes of every culinary god in existence and I offer my sincerest apologies, but que sera sera. Next time you head down to Subway for all that healthy goodness, try a cookie.
