Everybody knows what a cookie is, right? It's a little baked piece of Heaven that you can watch cook on the dashboard of your truck on an average summer day in Texas.

So who helped pick the favorite state cookies?

Eat This, Not That! talked about a recent survey done by Nestlé Toll House. With feedback from folks in each state, the favorite cookies began to make their sugary selves known. One cookie began to show its superiority very quickly.

Chocolate Chip cookies appeared on the list multiple times, which isn't surprising. I mean, who doesn't love a classic chocolate chip cookie? But we're not here to discuss other states, just one particular one: The Lone Star State.

What is Texas' favorite cookie?

Drum roll please: The favorite cookie of is Texas none other than...The Cowboy Cookie!

Wait...hold on - you were expecting chocolate chip, weren't you? Honestly, us too. The article details the selection like this:

This might be a bad time to admit this, but I've actually never had a cowboy cookie. Maybe this will be the time to officially try one?

Most of these laws are just funny now, but at one time, there was a valid (or at least somewhat valid) reason for them to exist.

Texas has plenty of strange rules and regulations that you could technically be prosecuted for if you violate them, since they've never been amended. Some of these are only for specific cities and not state-wide, but all of them are pretty odd!
