Fresh baked, hot from the oven, chocolate chip cookies.

Not the best weapons in the worst of times, but perfect in a sugar war.

The neighborhood moms were in this unspoken war. Who could make the best sugary treats. Who could win the doughy adoration of the children.

There was, of course, the one mother who thought the sugar war was an unspeakable horror. She was the mom who served healthy peanut butter on celery sticks, with raisins on top.

The other moms knew better though, when it came time to eat their young, they tasted better full of sweets.
