Cookie Monster Has Trouble Waiting For Cookies In This iPhone 6s Commercial

Sometimes the wait can be the hardest part. Cookie Monster is baking fresh cookies, and sets the timer (using new hands-free Siri) for 14 minutes. He puts on his waiting playlist and Jim Croce’s “Time in a Bottle” plays. Among other things, Cookie Monster turns the oven light on and off, tastes flour (and coughs), flips through a cookbook, chews on his wooden spoon, and goes outside. After all that, only 50 seconds have passed. This is gonna be tough.

 

DiGiorno Pizza & Cookies: The Best Idea Ever

These guys remind me of JD and Turk from Scrubs.

It’s been a few months since the introduction of DiGiorno Pizza & Cookies, and honestly I’m stunned nobody had started it sooner. The Consumerist reports that Nestle’s recent purchase of DiGiorno from Kraft allowed this beautiful marriage to happen. Also new from DiGiorno is its Pizza & Wyngz box, complete with the obnoxious spelling that suggests regular wings are too uncool for the kiddies.

Looking at the consumer base of frozen pizza, two stand out for me. One is busy families with children. The other is drunk/stoned collegians. Being more familiar with one than the other (guess which one?) I can say it’s brilliant. As an aside, I’m surprised you don’t hear about more kitchen fires occurring in college apartments. College students are often intoxicated and thus forgetful, inexperienced in the kitchen, and living in hilariously crappy dwellings.

So how do Pizza & Cookies stack up? Kelley from The Impulsive Buy gives it a good, but not great rating. But at 2 AM on Saturday night, I’m thinking the rating goes up exponentially.
