Free Cookies

The Midtown Schnucks, despite its crowded parking lots and aisles, is still my grocery store of choice. (At least until Whole Foods or Trader Joe's comes to Midtown.) Recently they've started letting kids under ten have a free cookie when accompanied by an adult. Maybe because they knew we were helping ourselves anyway? Anyways, it's nice and I appreciate it, as do the monkeys. Satchel had a lot of questions about why a kid would be in a grocery store without an adult, which was cute. I could only guess that the kids who walk home alone from school might catch wind of the free cookies and mob the store.



I should also add that on our last visit to Super Target, a woman in the deli offered the kids a free cookie without prompting.

When I was a kid they did that. Well, Seessel's did. I now have a very clear memory of shyly asking for a lady finger. I think that's all they gave out. I can't remember where that Seessel's was.

They do this at Fresh Market too.

I also have fond memories of free lady fingers at Seessel's.
