Cookie Monster Reviews 100 Years of Cookies with a Taste Test

When Bon Appétit’s YouTube channel needed someone to review cookies from the past 100 years they turned to the world’s leading expert in the field, the one and onlyCookie Monster. A recent post on the A.V. Club shared this tasty and educational treat and it’s just the excuse we needed to justify our own snacking habits. From now on, we aren’t just eating cookies. We’re doing important historical research.

Cookie Monster is joined by snack aficionados Megan and Billy as they sample cookie treats from the past hundred years. Throughout the video, Cookie Monster proves that he’s more of a cookie connoisseur than a monster by teaching the kids to appreciate each snack before he chows down on them in his distinct style. It even results in Megan changing her mind about a previous dislike of a cookie that will undoubtedly be a story she tells for the rest of her life. “No, really, I never thought I liked this kind of cookie until Cookie Monster had me give it another try!”

The video even taught us something new thanks to Cookie Monster’s expertise. For whatever reason, we would have guessed that the technology of putting chocolate chip to cookie would be an ancient snack innovation but we now know chocolate chip cookies came into culinary fruition in the 1930s, proving that even after 40 years on television, Cookie Monster is still able to take us to cookie school. [Note to self: Invent and subsequently attend “Cookie School”]

What kind of cookies would you want critiqued by Cookie Monster? Wine has sommeliers and beer has cicerones, what do you think a cookie expert should be called? Let’s discuss in the comments below!
