It's hard to believe it's November already.
With November comes colder weather. And with the colder weather comes one of Mark's favorite cookies.
That's right, Mallomars.
Mark has a sweet tooth, and he loves basic things, like black and white cookies, Entenmann's cakes, Reese's peanut butter cups and the new, chewy Spree.
Mark grew up knowing that Mallomars, a chocolate cookie topped with marshmellow and the whole thing dipped in chocolate, is only found in the colder months. Mallomars aren't available in the summer or in the Southern states, because they would melt. So the other day, when we encountered Mallomars in the neighborhood deli, we knew that winter was coming.
The New York Times wrote about the phenomenon a few years ago. Apparently, 70 percent of Mallowmars are sold in New York, and yes, they're only available in colder months and climates. You can read about it here.
