Parting is super-sweet sorrow
What's better than Fraktals? Nothing. But Fraktals cookies come pretty close
Guest post by Jackie Davis, assistant editor. The Great Outdoors and DIY Weekend—and the Fall Cottage Life Show—is over. Sniff. One thing that I always look forward to at the show—and miss when it’s done—is Fraktals (aka “spectacular chocolate cashew buttercrunch”). As far as I remember, It’s been sold at every Cottage Life show that I’ve ever been to since I started working at the magazine. Sure, I could buy this treat elsewhere, but I don’t. That just wouldn’t feel right. There are some things that I associate only with the show (hammers, chapped lips, the word “signage”), and Fraktals is one of them.
This year at the show, a co-worker suggested that I make Fraktals cookies. That’s crazy talk, Co-worker! But then—Holy cats, it’s a sign from the universe—I saw that Fraktals was “Now Available” chopped into small bits, as a baking mix. I bought some, and made cookies with it, much to the joy of everyone at work. (Well, except for one gluten-intolerant colleague, who said, “You put gluten-free Fraktals into your glutenous baking?! That’s just cruel.”)
Anyhow, it’s goodbye for now, Fraktals. I hope to see you March 30-April 1, 2012, at the Spring Cottage Life Show.
