Comments

Yes, Daniel , Freighofer's cookies recipie has changed.
The original cookie dough was less sweet, and they used dark/ or semisweet chips. Entemen's original choc-chip cookies with the dark choc chips are the most like the original cookies. For a while Freighofer sold both. They just sell the the new recipie now.

This is potentially good news for St. Josephs. I walk around it 2 or 3 times a week and the last few years the deterioration has seemed to accelerate. She will be looking right at it everyday from her front windows.
