Vanderbilt Brings Out My Inner Cookie Monster


Posted by Shing Ann Yeh on Wednesday, September 25, 2013

With words like “free,” “milk,” and “cookies,” it didn’t take much to convince me to stop by the Commons lawn yesterday.

I am not getting paid to endorse Hatcher. I wish, but I'm not.

I’d seen advertisements for “Hatcher’s Milk and Cookies Day” on the napkin baskets at Commons around a week ago. Hatcher’s milk, sold all around campus in the Munchie Marts, is really thick and creamy.  Imagine dipping a fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie in that chocolate pool of milk.  Those mouthwatering thoughts became tangible as I savored my afternoon snack.  What a lovely complement to my afternoon reading of “Reframing Organizations” textbook for HOD 1200.

Staking out a section of Commons, Hatcher truck? Approved.

Every so often, I check Dining’s Special Events page to see the creative treats they concoct. Tomorrow, Crepe Night at Rand with sweet and savory delights?  This Friday, Fall for the Arts, with booths of delectable fall-themed food paired with live music and the commencement of Parent’s Weekend?  See you there!

What an ingenious advertising technique!

Sometimes, there are spontaneous events, such as Commons’ Brazilian Night, whose poster suddenly appeared.  Every so often Jeni’s ice cream truck will pop up on Alumni Lawn to serve free scoops of Wildberry Lavender or Loveless Biscuits and Peach Jam ice cream.

The line for this meal was ridiculously long.

We are treated well.  From the resident foodie to campus dining, my compliments to the chefs!

Look how happy she is with her awesome plate of Bolinho de Milho!
