    Raw oysters=yum!

    Correct. Horseradish is also delish.

    Snails are great, but mainly bc of the garlic+butter.

    Nope. Not horseradish, not snails. Also not tomatoes. I'll eat things made with tomatoes (blended salsa, chili, etc.), but I don't like the texture of tomatoes by themselves.

    Cookies are not best fresh out of the oven. They are best when the chocolate chips have a chance to cool and settle

    I get that - I don't want the chips melted either.

    They at least have to settle down from the "hot lava" stage. Warm is fine. So is room temp, later.

    I like soft (cake-ish texture) chocolate chip cookies better than crunchy ones, but some chewy ones are OK. I'm prejudiced, I'm sure, because my favorite cookies since childhood, that I still love, are a banana-chocolate chip cookie that my mom used to make. The original recipe called for lard. I no longer use lard, but usually butter or coconut oil.

    Agree. I don't care for them warm, and I like the texture of the firmer chips mixed in with the soft cookie.
    Unless! you plop a little ice cream on top of the hot fresh cookie. That is delicious.

    It is unpopular. My entire family will rush to eat them as soon as they are out of the oven.

    But I'm willing to wait for it (Wait for it.)
    I am inimitable
    I am an original

    you play a daring game though...those cookies might disappear before they are 'ready' for you.

    Is it just chocolate chip cookies you feel so strongly about? Are other kinds of cookies okay warm out of the oven?

    All cookies. To me the flavor is muted when it's too hot.

    Moira does make a good point about an ice cream exception tho

    Now I'm curious. Do you feel the same about muffins right out of the oven? Because I do like warm from the oven blueberry muffins.

    I let the blueberries to settle a little.

    Walnut, apple, carrot muffins I eat fresh from the oven.
