Chains The Cookies

The name of this band, got me hooked, because nothing is better than Chocolate chip cookies and ice cream, but enough about what I’m having for dinner, I want Chains The Cookies, and I hope you feel the same.

The Cookies were an American R&B girl group active from 1954 to 1967. Members of the original lineup later became the Raelettes, the backing vocalists for Ray Charles.
