  I couldn't help it.  They were so good!

Hear the storyline. Cindy is a little hungry.  She wants to eat some cookies she bought last night, but she finds that all the cookies are gone....
Cindy: John, where are the cookies?  Don't tell me you ate them all!  Again!
John: Yes, I did.  I couldn't help it.  They were so good.
Cindy: I thought you didn't like cookies.
John: Well, I don't like cookies flavored with chocolate at all. But vanilla is different.  I love them to death. 
Cindy: Huh, I didn't know that.
John: Well, tell you what, vanilla cookies taste even better with a glass of cold milk.
