Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.
Tomorrow is LL77, and no time like the present to get back into the swing of writing about food questions! When I visited the site yesterday, I noticed this pop-up:
1. What cookie company was founded in Oakland in 1977 by Ken & Linda Rawlings, but is named for a made-up person name created by their 12-year-old daughter Kimberly? How she came up with that name, no idea.
2. Originally created in Scotland, give the most common name for the cookie/biscuit seen here, made of two cookies filled with jam, and topped with white icing and a glace cherry. These treats are very popular in Winnipeg.
3. What are the names of the two cookies seen here? Spelling counts.
4. Since 1985, Cookie Crisp cereal has featured different kinds of mascot thieves, always trying to steal Cookie Crisp, including Cookie Crook and Chip the Wolf. The original mascot, from 1977 to 1985 was Cookie Jarvis, who was what kind of person, as indicated from his hat and prop?
5. In 1989, New Mexico became the first state to have its own State Cookie, with what treat? Made with lard, cinnamon, and anise, this cookie’s recipe was supposedly brought over by Spanish settlers.
6. The standard version of what brand of Pepperidge Farm cookies features, amongst other designs, a horse in profile as well as two different types of crowns?
Good luck with LL77!
