I miss the gorilla cookies - before the rectangular single choc covered.. still good but I agree with Cortex those circulars are the best (if you are lucky enough to find fresh ones!).
Aaah, I was just about to leave work when I saw the new post. Now you guys have me looking online at more brown bags to add to the stores. Haha. Go to sleep, Steve, before I spend anymore money ;)
All the best, Gents.

I just had a maple nut cake that Steve sent me awhile back, held up real well actually, and was FANTASTIC! I will forgive him for not sending me a pineapple nut cake :P. Now those ones are to die for. I'd eat a million of em if I had some.

All these pound cakes they do, they need to bring these nut cakes back to liven it up more imo.
