This week, I brought a co-worker an apple.
He swore to Jen and I that he only liked Red Delicious apples and that he would never like another kind of apple.
Then Heather Said, “Ummmmm….hello??? Are you doubting the power of the Honeycrisp?”
So Tuesday, I brought him a Honeycrisp and SURE ENOUGH- he now likes “two kinds of apples, afterall.”
Soon, cookie testing days started falling on co-workers birthdays, becoming duel purpose treats and not too long after cookies became cupcakes, brownies and other treats.
It didn’t take much time before I was unofficially declared the birthday baker, bringing treats to share in order to celebrate the birth of each of my co-workers.
As the conversation continued, I mentioned something about vegan treats. Everyone in the room looked grossed out and two guys asked me what ‘vegan’ means. After some discussion, I was informed that my coworkers would NEVER eat, let alone enjoy, a vegan baked good. No dairy? No eggs? That must mean dry and tasteless, clearly! As many of you know; NOT THE CASE. The challenge wrote itself- afterall -even though I’m not participating, it is Blogger Vegan Week hosted by Michelle and Katy, and Thursday is Blogger Vegan for a Day. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to spring a sneak attack on my coworkers.
along with some chocolate vegan cupcakes. And, of course, being the trickster that I am- I don’t plan on saying A THING about the vegan-ness of the treats until Friday (I am tricky like that!) Stay tuned for details on how it all pans out.
Have you ever tried to “trick” friends or family with a healthy version of an often unhealthy treat or snack?
