The boxes under the tent were piled up high. Li Du went to take a look and said, "Are these the cookies that the children are selling?"
Mother Mesa smiled. "Yes, this is the first batch. We are rushing to put in the time to order and bake more."
As she spoke, she opened a box and passed a packet of cookies to him, indicating for him to try some.
Inside the packet were some regular cookies. Li Du took a bite; the taste was great as it was fresh out of the oven—fragrant and crunchy.
The cookie flavor was peppermint. It had a sweet, refreshing taste, and was more delicious than the cookies he had bought from the supermarket.
Li Du commented, "They're yummy. No wonder you guys are confident about making more. Mother Mesa, give me two big boxes—no, make it four big boxes."
