What Your Favorite Cookie Says About You

sugar cookieThink of all the cookie varieties in the world. There has to be a different cookie for every kind of personality, don't you think? I sure do! What looks to you like a baked confection of flour, butter, sugar, and egg is actually an entire little universe every bit as complex as each one of us. Okay, that's a slight exaggeration. But don't you think your favorite cookie says something about you? Choose wisely -- which one is your favorite?

  • Chocolate Chip Conservative

    You're a traditionalist, but you still like to have a little fun. Only if it's the right kind of fun, though. Those of you who like a chewy cookie are a little more flexible than those of you who prefer crunchy.

  • Chocolate Chocolate Chip Libertine



    Too much is never enough for you. You're decadent and indulgent. You probably eat those cookies with a single malt Scotch. Obviously you're amazing in the sack as well.

  • Oatmeal Do-Gooder

    You always do what's right, even when you really want chocolate. You volunteer for an animal rights organization and give all your money to UNICEF. And you believe strongly in taking good care of your health, which is why you'll only allow yourself to eat one oatmeal raisin cookie a month. And one oatmeal carb chip cookie a year. Maybe. If you've been really good.

  • Oreo Compromiser



    If you think I'm going to tell you that awful cliche about Oreos and race, forget it. Oreo cookies are actually about compromise and boundaries. You like chocolate and vanilla, but in equal proportion. You'll share your toys and bend on what movie to watch. But then you'll expect reciprocity later on. 

  • Homemade Sugar Cookie Eccentric

    People expect you to be ordinary, like a sugar cookie. But really, you're full of sprinkles and wild colors. You go be your wild self, sugar cookie eater!

  • Cheap Cookies Because You Give Up

    Those lame, cheap cookies from the grocery store bakery -- really? Don't you think you deserve more out of life? You make do. SIGH.

  • Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Flax Seed, and Chia Vegan Sadness

    You have a lot of rules. You are afraid of life. Do you even like cookies?

  • Linzer Fancy-Pants



    Oh my, Linzer cookies. Aren't we fancy? You probably have a nice handbag, too. You're a sharp dresser and you speak a bit of French, though not fluently. You have bangs.

  • Alfajores, Si!


    You are Argentine.
