Taste test: These cookies had a standard graham/butter cookie taste with a bit of orange flavoring.
They were supposed to be shaped like various tropical things, but it was hard for me to figure out what the actual shapes were trying to depict. The largest ones were triangular, sort of like pizza slices, which I don't usually think of as tropical. (Maybe Hawaiian pizza?) Another kind looked sort of like the illustration on the bag of a shark eating an orange, or at least the shark part of it. (Question for any marine biologists out there: Do sharks really eat oranges?) Other cookies looked like they were supposed to be the bear in the illustration of a bear on a surfboard. (No need for anyone to contact me on this one. If I remember anything at all from school, it's that bears do indeed surf.) Another was maybe supposed to be the top of a palm tree. There were two other kinds that I couldn't figure out at all, so I just ate them.
