I think my obsession with Oreos has reached a critical mass. My cousin Adam had me in our annual cousin gift-swap and elected to get me seven different varieties of Oreos to consume. We have:
Birthday Cake Golden Oreos
Double Stuffed Oreos
Peanut Butter Oreos
Mega Stuf Oreos
Mint Oreo Thins
Chocolate Covered Oreos
And diabetes in a pear tree.
No lie, this is absolutely the sweetest and funniest gift I could have gotten this Christmas. And thanks to it, we finally have an Oreo category on Unbreakable, at long last.
I couldn’t help thinking of your Oreo posts the other day, when I found myself in San Francisco’s Japantown. I innocently walked through Nijiya Market’s snack aisle and discovered the wonderland of Japanese Oreos and Oreo-related products! It was pretty dazzling. I was running out of cash and suitcase space at that point, so I just bought a little box of Oreo Chocolat snacks with the green tea filling. (Yes, I’m already regretting leaving some things on the shelf, like the madacamia-filled Oreo bars and the chestnut cream-filled soft Oreos.) I haven’t tried them yet, but I can provide photographic evidence and tasting notes upon request…
Sigh, that should read “macadamia,” of course. Who knew that Oreos would make me forget how to spell?
