When a group of North Carolina fans put together some goodies for the cast and crew, one actor intercepted them and claimed all the edible items in the box. Co-Executive Producer Maril Davis, and fellow cast member Caitriona Balfe were not happy about losing out on the things in the box, especially the cookies.

Sam Heughan (Jamie Fraser) shared a picture of an open box of goodies that was sent to Davis by the fans. The actor did not hesitate to claim all the delicious edibles in the box.

That led to a quick response from Davis who wanted to know about the Moravian cookies in the box. Heughan denied the presence of any cookies, even though the picture he previously shared clearly shows Moravian cookies. The producer was not happy with the actor’s response and even called him a cookie monster.

Balfe (Claire) also joined in the banter. The conversation quickly turned to a pineapple being thrown at Heughan’s face. There may not be any actual pineapples on “Outlander” season 3 set, so the actors perhaps were speaking in code.

While everyone else was angry for not being able to taste the cookies, Heughan surely enjoyed them. The actor further teased how good they taste when one of the fans explained that the Moravian cookies are the best, and there is no disagreement on that.

Balfe and the others, however, may not let Heughan forget this easily. The actress is sure to take a dig at her colleague every chance she gets to take her revenge after the cookie incident.

The cast and crew seem to be having fun on the sets of “Outlander” season 3. Heughan and Balfe spent the first few episodes filming separately. Now that the reunion scene has been filmed, the two actors will be filming together.
