Coffee Mugs, cookies included

Cookie MugsWhen I was a kid, my favorite mug – for hot chocolate back then, not coffee – had a ceramic frog in the bottom of it that was slowly revealed I drank. It wasn’t the novelty of seeing the frog that made me like the mug, though it certainly was cute, but simply knowing that there was more to my simple hot chocolate than met the eye. I always gave drinks to my friends in that mug just to see the looks on their faces.

I don’t have any “surprise inside” mugs these days, as I prefer to put the unexpected into my baked goods and into the drinks themselves (cinnamon, vanilla, mexican-spiced cocoa, etc.). But I may have to reconsider that position and get back to my roots now that I’ve seen these Cookie Mugs (click on Kitchen and Tabletop, page 2 for the product listing). The mugs have classic tea – or coffee – cookies in the bottom. Take your pick of jam sandwich or custard cream and can have one extra cookie with your tea every time you have a cup.

    My grandma had that mug with the frog in it. We used to fight over who got to use it when we went to her house. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. 🙂

    Did the ceramic frog croak as the liquid drained? We had that and I hated it. It always scared the heck out of me, and I could never be certain that real frog hadn’t somehow hopped into our cabinets.

    The mugs are so cool!! Too bad they don’t sell them where I live! 🙂
