#MrsFieldsMoments: We Missed Mrs. Fields!

Way back when we were in Manila, I once brought home a Mrs. Fields cookies to my daughter. She loved it instantly! We munch over the cookies while watching her favorite Dora CD.


When doing the grocery last weekend, we came across the chiller and the kids saw this ice cream, of course Mrs. Fields flavored it is! Chewy Fudge cookie it is!

AS soon as we got home, little girl started eating her share of the ice cream!



Look how much she love it! With all her smile.
I can never blame her for loving Mrs. Fields, it's really delicious.
.

Having said it all, Mrs. Fields cookies are really one of the best product I've known, taste-wise. When we have a pack of it, my girls have the biggest smiles on their face, they really love the soft, chewy and delicious cookie. The fambam is really having a great family time, watching movie and munching on the favorite cookie we all love!

Being situated in a place that have limited resources for this product, we just settled for the ice cream version of Mrs. Fields' cookies! Though we make it a point that whenever a relative comes to Palawan (from Manila), we ordered at least a box or two of Mrs. Fields cookies! :) 

I also heard a news about Mrs. Fields, that they had this partnership with USO and have this campaign about bringing families together. 

They also have this contest that says: "Share #MrsFieldsMoments & Win! Show us your cookie moment, win the trip of a lifetime!" --You guys, better check this out! 


Too many people don’t fully understand the real challenges – big and small – that our troops and their families face, but the USO (United Service Organizations) does. From the front porch to the front lines, there are countless everyday moments that our troops and their families sacrifice due to their commitment and service to our country and many of us unknowingly take these everyday moments in our lives for granted.  Whether its family dinners and date nights, children’s births and bedtime stories, or after school snack times that our troops and their families miss, the USO wants to help give these moments back.
The USO’s Every Moment Counts campaign was created to rally Americans to help the USO provide simple, everyday moments that mean so much to our troops and their families.  The challenges of military life do not end when deployment does. For this reason, USO is committed to helping our troops and their families throughout their service – making every moment count – whether they are deployed or returning home.
With Mrs. Fields Moments, we’re encouraging all families — military and otherwise — to make the most of every moment and dedicate every Sunday night to creating more memories. With our family conversation starters and collection of Sunday Snacktivities, we’re hoping you’ll take this one night to slow down, grab a box of Mrs. Fields cookies and truly savor your Sunday with the family.
Cookies for a Cause
We’re putting our money where our mouth is — literally. As a proud supporter of the United Services Organization (USO), Mrs. Fields is donating 35,000 cookies for use in USO2GO kits, which are provided to troops stationed in the most remote and restricted locations. Deployments can mean missed moments large and small, and this is just one more way we’re helping troops and their families savor more moments that matter.





Since its inception in 2008, the USO has shipped more than 1,350 USO2GO kits to places such as Afghanistan, Egypt, Jordan and Djibouti. These deliveries weigh more than 1,000 pounds each and contain personal care items, sports equipment, electronics and more items that provide a sense of home for deployed troops. - http://www.mrsfieldsmoments.com/uso/

These cookies sound and look amazing along with the ice cream. I think it is important for family to get together for family time at least once a week. Kudos to the USO and Mrs.'s Fields for supporting our troops. Thanks for sharing.
