Milk and Cookie Shots: Dominique Ansel Gets It Exactly Backwards

So now that no one cares anymore about cronuts, Dominique Ansel has a new cutesy idea, only it's downright idiotic. Behold the milk and cookie shot:


A moment's thought makes plain why this idea is a complete non-starter: it gets the entire milk and cookies concept backwards. Who drinks milk and THEN eats a cookie?

    My thoughts exactly! I've never finished a glass of milk and craved a cookie. More than I always crave cookies at least.

      Is this one of those molecular gastronomists?

        Just as silly as the cronut... And probably as uneventful in taste.

          I think you should just put the entire thing in your mouth at once instead of drinking the milk first then eating the cookie shot glass.

          If you read the article, the dude was inspired by what he considered an unnatural combination outside of his experience in France: drinking milk with Oreos.

            Would probably work quite well if filled with vanilla ice cream, a milkshake, or something similar...
