What about “cookies” in general?

Like if person 1 does something person 2 likes, usually person 2 responds with something like “You win a cookie!” or a picture of a cookie.

I’ve noticed a recent surge of internet fascination of cookies, but nothing really that can be pinpointed as a meme yet. This is pretty much just a reaction image. I would give you a cookie for trying, but…

I don’t do many entries, so I might defer to VanManner here, but if those images are unique and can be sourced to various sites on the Internet, then I think it merits a discussion before we relegate it to the catch-all Reaction Images entry.

If it were me, then I might go ahead and source each image here, see if you can find an origin (which would be the hardest thing,) and then see if you can find other instances of it. Many entries only have 10 or so images in their galleries (even if they’re memes based on images) and they’re confirmed, but to get support (and not have it be immediately deadpooled,) you’ll probably have to go above and beyond what the editors did for those entries.
 
I can’t help you myself, I’m afraid. But like I said, I think it merits a discussion if you can continue to find evidence for it.
