Moms Claim Target Christmas Cookie Design ‘Fail’ Gives Santa Claus A Hilariously ‘Kinky’ Twist

Target

🎵 “Don we now our gay apparel…” 🎶

Turns out this edict has some rules. Target and a certain Christmas cookie found that out the hard way.

A set of three Christmas cookies from Target are coming under scrutiny across social media for a very questionable third cookie that looks….

Well, see for yourself:

The unfortunate shape of this otherwise innocuous cookie have caused quite a dialogue about if these are appropriate for the season.

Nicole Miller, a mom from Tennessee, said to The New York Post:

“My friends pointed out Santa’s boots—which I then couldn’t unsee.”

Said mom Suzie Fromer, of Irvington, New York:

“I would not send these to school.”

“Definite design fail!”

While the cookies provide a cheap satisfaction for one’s sweet tooth, running at just $3.99 for a pack, they may not be viable to have around the house.

Westchester country mom Jola Burnett, who works in market research, said she could not fathom how cookies with such an obvious design error were able to make it to shelves in the first place.

“I mean, how on Earth were those cookies able get so far down the [production] line?”

Target, meanwhile, appears to have been totally clueless about the cookies.

A rep told The New York Post:

“We have not received any feedback directly on this item.”

“The design is intended to represent Santa’s boots.”

“We appreciate the feedback and will take it into consideration moving forward.”

Despite this all, it’s good for a laugh in an otherwise odd and difficult holiday season.

Great for stocking stuffers for your (adult) friends.
