    The other 5% comes from the artifical cow.

  2. DrLex | 4:38 am |

    The other 5% is epoxy glue to hold the sand together.

  3. faulty wiring | 4:52 am |

  4. Terri | 5:00 am |

    Mommy! Mommy! Lookit me, lookit me! I’m a goldfish !

  5. jjhitt | 5:06 am |

    To see a world in a grain of sand,
    And a heaven in a wild flower,
    Hold a cookie in the palm of your hand.

  6. jjhitt | 5:24 am |

    Footprints in the crumbs of time….

  7. spare ocean | 5:36 am |

    Lick, dip….mote! (ouch)

  8. DrLex | 5:40 am |

    Given that regular sand is inorganic, “organic sand” must be an euphemism for ground dried organic waste.

  9. faulty wiring | 5:47 am |

    Like organic cream through the hour glass…

  10. jjhitt | 5:56 am |

    I am not hiding my head in the sand, I’m having a snack.

  11. Seventy2rd o clock | 6:11 am |

    Organic Sandman!

  12. Peabruck | 7:48 am |

    Hey, Little Chef, you sand-bagged me again, you’re fired!

  13. mickeygreeneyes | 7:59 am |

  14. mickeygreeneyes | 8:00 am |

    La la la la la la la la
    La la la la la.
    Mister Sandman
    Bring me a . . . cookie?

  15. Chris | 8:11 am |

    Q: Are you a good witch or a bad witch?
    A: I’m a sand-witch!

  16. Classic Steve | 8:17 am |

    Part of the South Beach Diet?

  17. jjhitt | 8:35 am |

    @Classic Steve: Dieting is a real beach.

  18. coffeebot | 8:42 am |

    Provides 100% of your RDA of silica

  19. SF | 10:22 am |

    I suspect it came through French, in which “sablés” (sandy, which becomes sands if you remove the accent) is a type of biscuit (cookie on the other side of the pond).

  20. Terrenza | 10:26 am |

    True Grit

  21. Michael | 10:35 am |

    Just like the homemade kind from your sandbox!

  22. Eccekio | 11:52 am |

    There is no such thing as “organic” Silica. This is a Chemical impossiibility, and would require a revision of the Periodic Table.

  23. Eccekio | 11:54 am |

    Oh! I see! The filling is Camel chips.

  24. Frank Burns | 12:14 pm |

    You all missed it. When you eat the cookies, the sand goes to YOUR organs.

  25. Bazooka Joe | 12:34 pm |

    soon where there were 2 sets of footprints in the hydrox, there was now but one….

  26. Eccekio | 1:05 pm |

    It is like a nude beach. The “sand which is” up my bum and between my toes

  27. Lora | 3:46 pm |

    Little Chef was so busy with his new Easy Bake oven he didn’t realize at first his parents had accidentally left him HOME ALONE!
    Little Chef: *claps hands to face* AUUUUUUUUGH!!!!!

    (or is he a girl? it’s kind of hard to tell.) :-)

  28. Jimbo | 4:01 pm |

    Eat them with a desert spoon.

  29. marc | 5:50 pm |

    The other 5% is child

  30. Eccekio | 6:23 pm |

    @mICHAEL. I don’t have a sandbox, but my cat does. Will that do?

  31. T.E. Rorensu | 6:33 pm |

    My people are the people of the dessert.

  32. dalahäst | 11:33 pm |

    The word translated as ‘sand’ here is 샌드 (saendŭ), apparently intended to be short for 샌드외치 (saendŭwich’i), “sandwich”. Obviously, a machine translator is not going to realize that the writer intended a (perhaps ‘trendy’?) spelling here.

  33. anon7743 | 10:17 am |

    “Sand” is totally understandable. Typically Japanese (and Korean?) problem with contracting “sandwich” in product packaging. So when I see “cream sand pie” on a package of creamed sandwiched crackers/cake confectionary I totally get used to it — although I’m not exactly a confectionary lover.

    The Little Chef just realized some lyrics to a song.

    Just one little grain of sand can change your life and ruin your plans
    Undermine your house of love bring it tumbling down
    One one one grain of sand
    One one one grain of sand

    Thank you Eddie Arnold for bumming out everyone in the world.

    Revised periodically, the Periodic Table now includes irrational elements. Korean chemists have contributed several, including ‘organic sand’, with which they are able to produce the remarkable organic glass.

  36. Rick W | 2:29 am |

    Dessert, or desert?

  37. adrasl300 | 4:22 pm |

    But…sand is just finely ground rock. How can it be organic?

  38. garudamon11 | 10:55 am |

    It must be hydrogen hydroxide salt

  39. drinkyoursteak | 12:46 am |

    And the other 5 percent is: two parts oxygen added to one part silicon.

  40. Mark | 9:03 pm |

    I only eat cookies made with organic sand.

  41. hello | 3:19 pm |

    Koreans say sand short for sandwich.

  42. l2646134 | 1:20 pm |

    Flint Marko’s favorite dessert.

  43. iwantacookie | 12:42 pm |

    Well that sure does explain the expression…

  44. iwantacookie | 12:42 pm |

    That explains the expression….

  45. Biff the Understudy | 3:48 pm |

    @DragonLady: Irrational silicon, atomic number √-1

    Home Alone is universal. John Candy, however, is an acquired taste, even for Americans. When exactly is the proper moment to have an intervention….
