You May Want To Think Twice About That Chocolate Chip Cookie In First Class

For as long as I can recall, American Airlines has served chocolate chip cookies in first class that they bake on board. It’s one of my favorite parts of the flight as my wayward cholesterol level can attest to.

It seems not all cookies are created equal. From the Star Ledger, CBP officers seized a batch of cookies from an incoming passenger. Why?

Officers discovered cookies in his three checked bags. Inside the cookies, officers found 118 small, oval-shaped pellets of cocaine. The pellets contained a total of 3 pounds of cocaine with an an approximate street value of $52,000, according to Bucci.

Awesome.  I’m sure this has been tried before, but it’s the first time I’ve heard of it.  I guess it beats swallowing the drugs and hoping to get them back out later.

Brings new definition to the term “sugar high”.
