You don't chase trends -- you stick with what's classic. You keep things simple, cherish your family traditions, and can probably knit a scarf. You like to entertain, and whether throwing a casual BBQ or a dinner party for 8, you pull it off with grace, decorum, and attention to detail. Your style icons are Jackie O. or Don Draper, and while you aren't a Luddite, you probably prefer scrapbooks to Facebook.
Minty chocolate wafers with a chocolate coating
With that minty breath, you are popular, magnetic, the center of attention. Mirroring your cookie of choice, you have a smooth, even disposition with just a bit of bite. Your brisk, outgoing attitude and whip-smart sense of humor ensure that you're never without plans on a Friday night -- but you're also confident enough to roll solo.
Crunchy oatmeal cookies with a creamy peanut butter center
You are mellow, genial, and easy-to-please. A bit of a homebody, you like to be surrounded by close friends, home-cooked meals, and high-quality scented candles. You tend to be a diplomat and a peacemaker, whether at work, on the home front, or when airing your grievances with the cable company. You manage to be mature and responsible without being judge-y -- an appealing combo.
Chocolate-covered vanilla cookies with peanut butter layers
You live to laugh -- you don't take yourself too seriously, and you take life's challenges in stride. Like the chocolate-peanut butter of the Tagalong, you have an intriguing duality. One side of you is smooth, relaxed, and easygoing, while you also have a dark side, one that likes to ponder life's deeper meanings and philosophical quagmires. You snap out of it quickly, though, especially when cookies are present.

You're a natural born epicure who gravitates towards the finer things in life. Never one to shy away from excess, you're a freewheeling bon vivant with a large network of loyal friends and admirers. Thoughtful, creative, and discerning, you may err on the side of snobby, but luckily you're charming enough to get away with it.
Lemon Chalet Cremes

Everything in moderation -- even cookies. You care deeply about feeding your mind, body, and soul and strive to live a healthy, happy lifestyle. You're an intuitive listener, you love animals and the outdoors, and you're extremely sensitive -- you may find yourself sobbing through particularly emotional episodes of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. Don't worry, it happens to the best of us.
Thank You Berry Munch

You've got a bit of an edge -- you're a maverick, a person of diverse tastes and interests. Impulsive and full of energy, you might be hiking Mount Kilimangaro one week, the next engaged in a chicken-wing-eating competition. A pop culture savant, you're always on to the next big thing in food, fashion, movies, and music. While you may get bored easily, you're never boring. Viva variety!
