I love it when our local treat shop calls on us to create a new flavor.
Whitey's held a contest last year to vote on a new ice cream flavor suggested by the public. The iconic ice cream company started selling a flavor called Monster Cookie based on the suggestions of Quad Citians. They put the top flavors suggested up for a vote and voila, we have a new delicious flavor to enjoy.
Now a local bakery is doing the same thing. Cookies and Dreams, with locations in Davenport, Bettendorf, Iowa City, and soon more branches in Ankeny and the Chicago suburbs need our help creating a new cookie flavor.
They already have delicious cookies like chocolate chip, Snickerdoodle cheesecake, peanut butter, and birthday cake.
According to the bakery's social media, they're looking for more delicious creations.
Cookies and Dreams want you to comment on their Facebook post and include your best, most drool-worthy cookie flavor idea.
They'll pick their top favorites (community voting by likes is encouraged!) and the top three will go head to head in a social media poll to pick the most requested, top favorite cookie idea chosen by the bakery's dedicated team of cookie monsters and fans.
The ideas so far are pretty good. How about this one:
Maple Bourbon flavored Sugar Cookie with Candied Bacon and a Caramel Drizzle
or maybe this one:
Dark chocolate cookie with chocolate chips and a raspberry chocolate filling. Dark chocolate raspberry!
Head over to their Facebook post to suggest your own flavor or see what's already been submitted.
Then get ready to add 'cookie designer' to your resume!
LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean
With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
Essential Winter Emergency Kit Items
Winter season in the Quad Cities means cold temperatures, heavy snow, and slick roads. Hopefully, you won't ever need to tap into your winter emergency kit, but it's better to have one in your car than to be unprepared. Make sure you have these essential items in your car before winter arrives in the Quad Cities.
