A few days ago, I stopped by my parents’ house to replace a bathroom faucet and my mom surprised me with this glass, Halloween pumpkin full of chocolate chip and black cat sugar cookies! However, this isn’t any ol’ ordinary glass pumpkin. When I was a kid, I bugged my parents to buy me this thing at Dunkin Donuts. If I remember correctly, the pumpkin came full of Halloween Munchkins (DD’s name for donut holes) during the 80′s.
After a few Halloweens of the pumpkin being loaded with all sorts of goodies, someone broke it (probably me, but I’ve conveniently blocked that event from my memory). I hadn’t seen a glass pumpkin donut/cookie jar in over twenty-years, until my grandma found this one. She had a yard sale; my mom bought it from her and gave it to me, and ta-dah I have my pumpkin back.
While I was adjusting it for the photo, all I could smell was the cookie scent wafting out the top. I know what I’m having for lunch… well, make that after lunch. Thanks, Mom!
