Hi, I'm merchanfan. I'm a college student and my mom has been sending me cookies in care packages. Normally, her cookies are really good, but the last two years they have had this strong chemical aftertaste like wool or mothballs or something. I've been trying to figure out what mistake she could be making with shipping, but it doesn't seem to be a common problem. The worst offenders are things that were in Ziploc bags inside the box, especially stuff with raisins or nuts.
Any idea what could be the problem or just tips on how to prevent this?
They don't come in broken or stale, but just taste really weird and not good at all.
