Many know that I commute from our beloved Duke City to Santa Fe every day for work. In the summer months I tend to drive quite a bit due to my schedule going particularly wonky, but in the winter I ride the railrunner every day. I park and ride from the Los Ranchos/Journal Center station, and have noticed something in that neighborhood that is really toying with my chubby emotions - the strong scent of cookies.
Seriously, driving to or from, day or night, going east or west on Paseo del Norte or El Pueblo Road. A crazy strong scent of cookies. Warm, Sweet, Tasty cookies. Is there a cookie/baking factory nearby?
So, help put me out of my curious & chubby misery. What is making that delectable smell??!
no wonder I had no idea what the smell was!! My mom NEVER let us have any of those awesome sugary cereals :(
I'd have already figured it out if it were something bland, gross, organic, macrobiotic.....lol.
I drive by the 'It's It' factory on my way to the airport but have never smelled anything. I'll have to pay more attention next time.
I'm a native San Franciscan. I've been here for 18 years. We used to drive over the Bay Bridge to the Mysterious East Bay and smell the coffee! Seriously, Hills Bros. Coffee used to (still? roast and you could smell it as you left The City,.
When we drove to Tahoe and passed Vacaville towards Sacratomato, you could smell onions! They grew there and the packing sheds were there. My brothers and I always smelled them and thought of Hamburgers! LOL
Live and work near GM where Coco Puffs & Trix scents fill the air. I'm not a big chocolate fan but I do enjoy taking a big whiff of them Coco Puffs.
I love when they're making Cookie Crisp! Berry Berry Kix used to be the oddest smell.
Back in the day, they used to have what seemed like a schedule. Cookie Crisp on Friday nights, Cheerios in the mornings. It just felt like a pattern. Either way, I've always thought it was a fun little thing while driving down Paseo.
