The folks who make Oreo cookies are about to release two new flavors - Blueberry Pie and Fruity Crisp - here in the United States.
This reminded me of my love affair with Oreo Cookies. Although I have more or less broken the Oreo habit due to being on Weight Watchers (not officially, anymore) I miss them. Here's a post from 2013 where I talk about Oreos and some of the strange flavors they've made. Since then, even more limited edition flavors have hit U.S. shelves.
In my childhood, there was only one kind of Oreo. Now, it seems, there are so many. Maybe, too many.
But I still wish they would bring back the Strawberry Milkshake ones.
Here's my 2013 post:
Would you eat a watermelon flavored Oreo?
I haven't tried one yet but this inspires me to blog about my favorite cookie: the Oreo Cookie.
I am still pining away for the limited edition Strawberry Milkshake Oreo.
The Strawberry Milkshake Oreo.
The best Oreo ever-strawberry creme, chocolate cookie. (Nabisco, when
will you ever bring it back? And, is it true that it is still sold in
Canada even today?)
Yesterday, someone at work told me about a limited edition lemon Oreo
(with blonde cookies). She let me taste a couple today and they are
good. They would be better with the chocolate cookies, but that's not
what Nabisco is marketing. (Note: as always, I do not get compensated
from anyone for any product review - not that I do them very often). Not
cloyingly sweet, like the birthday cake Oreo (ugh) or the candy corn
Oreo (double ugh, but I detest genuine candy corn so what was I doing
tasting one of these?) or the "this has to be a joke, right?" chocolate
So I went online to research the lemon Oreos and read instead about the
limited edition Watermelon Oreos just introduced here in the United
Could Oreo be outdoing themselves with new flavors? I've read several online reviews about the watermelon Oreos (again,
with blonde cookie) - and people actually like them. They are not
artificially over-watermelonated (is that a word?). Why they are both
red and green is beyond me - and who needs artificial color like this -
but I am intrigued.
Of course, two of these watermelon Oreos are 150 calories and a lot of
Weight Watchers points. Too many, considering that REAL watermelon is
zero points and lots of nutrition.
But I am intrigued. If I can get to a Target soon (it's a Target
exclusive) I may be tempted to buy a package. (but don't tell my former
Weight Watchers leader.)
There are a lot of Oreo flavors that aren't sold in the United States.
Why not? Perhaps we aren't ready for Green Tea Oreos (which do appeal
to me) but why not the tri-chocolate Oreos they sell in Mexico? Each
cookie a different chocolate and the creme a third kind of chocolate?
Or mango/orange Oreos? Or raspberry Oreos?
Come on, Nabisco. Bring back the Strawberry Milkshake Oreo and bring on
the Mexican chocolate Oreo! You are missing a marketing opportunity!
Have you had any of the "unusual" (to the United States, that is) Oreos? What did you think of them?
