    Yay! I'm so glad some other people get the horrible qualities of Lofthouse in particular.
    Bad cookie.
    Bad frosting.
    I love cookies & frosting, generally.

    Years ago I watched some show on the Food Network about how stuff is made; I think it was called Unwrapped. Anyway, these cookies were featured on an episode and they kept saying how Lofthouse cookies have a huge fanbase, etc. I told my mom about them and she mentioned they sell them where she lives and next time she saw me she'd bring me a pack. Well, she did and I took one bite and spit it out. I don't want to yuck anyone else's yum but for me everything about them was absolutely disgusting. I don't have a huge sweet tooth anyway so I'm not surprised I found them too sweet but even the texture was off-putting.

    I always have ketchup on hot dogs! Or chicken dogs as the case may be these days. And I eat marshmallows almost every night. :(

    The lofthouse cookies aren't worth the calories and the icing sucks so the one time I bought some, I just ended up eating around the outside edge of the cookies and threw the part with any icing away.

    And scrambled eggs - ketchup is awesome. Maybe it would make the cookies in the OP a bit better too? :D

    Re the food in the OP, ick, not my thing. I'm picky about sweets.

    Re "polarizing":

    I went out to dinner tonight, and my friend and I agreed at great length that marshmallows are one of the worst foods ever, so them too.


    marshmallows are also on my least favorite foods list, along with cotton candy, and candy apples.

    One of my daughters loves ketchup, mayo, and mustard with pickle relish on hotdogs (chicken dogs in our case) with american cheese. I'm a mustard, american cheese, and pickle relish gal.

    Lol, my husband hates these cookies with a passion. I think they're okay. I could take it or leave it.

    I love them! I like to scrape off the icing though and eat the cookie part.

    *edited to add that I do not eat them anymore. I don't keep anything in the house that I cannot control myself around. That's not to say that I won't ever eat one ever again. Just count my calories and go on with my life!! :)

    I HATE those Lofthouse sugar cookies. They look like they might be good, guilty pleasure type of sugary sweets...but they are VILE! :#

    Why do I feel like people aren't responding here because they have not tried this horrible trick of a cookie?

    They are so bad. There are thousands of much better cookies, if you can work them into your plan.

    Mustard, onions, and relish for me. Sometimes giardiniera too.

    I hate ketchup and only like mayo in specific applications (as an ingredient in deviled eggs or chicken or pasta salad, ideally homemade mayo, or with garlic as aioli or in a tartar sauce, both of which are better dipping options for fries than ketchup).

    I've never heard of mayo on a hotdog.

    Re ketchup: https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-1993-08-04-1993216204-story.html

    I've never heard of mayo either. I always thought ketchup and mustard was the standard hotdog topping everywhere.

    I love the lofthouse cookies, but haven't had one in forever. (so who knows if they are as good as I remember) Used to have them all the time as a kid.

    I'm a cookie addict and used to bake all the time, but even I think those things are gross. They don't have any of the qualities that make a cookie so delightful. Even if I were to go for a cheap, sugar rush I'd end up going for pretty much anything before those.

    So yes, I'd say they're polarizing! I guess cookie snobs like me find them offensive to our "connoisseur" sensibilities. :D

    I've never had ketchup on eggs but had a friend who couldn't eat them any other way.

    I put sugar free maple syrup on mine. :)

    Wait - those are polarizing? I thought you were going to say something like mayonnaise, ketchup on hamburgers (or hotdogs), or candy corn. Unless you're talking about the dialectical differences pertaining to whether or not you call what's in the above picture cookies or biscuits.

    Heh, I thought it was going to be bread, corn, or potatoes, although ketchup (esp on hotdogs, which is a travesty) and mayo are good ideas, and now that I'm thinking about it, cilantro, of course. Or soybeans.

    I went out to dinner tonight, and my friend and I agreed at great length that marshmallows are one of the worst foods ever, so them too.

    I totally forgot about the cilantro thing! I'm not sure how I did though...
    And yeah, I'm also picky about my sweets, especially chocolate and baked goods. Though even ice cream....that's perhaps why I eat so little ice cream I suppose.

    THANK YOU! Until I moved from New York to California I never realized that ketchup on hot dogs was even an option :o

    Yeah - there was a reason I included ketchup on my list. I mean I grew up on the West Coast (but have lived on the East Coast), but I've known about that divide in high school maybe. Then again, I also only like ketchup on french fries.

    When I ate bacon I did as well. I don't know that it's especially uncommon and it makes a ton of sense - sweet and salty.
