Oreos, Part 3: Organic Oreos

So, by now, you know my weakness for Oreos. But the thing is, in excess, they are extremely unhealthy (especially the Double Stuffs that I love). Sure, I’ve tried Reduced Fat Oreos and they’re nasty (they’re reduced fat because they have almost no creme on them!). However, I’m here to report that I have found the holy grail of Oreos (or should I say, “Chocolate Creme Sandwiches”?): what I call “Organic Oreos.”

They’re not really organic, they’re actually just “All Natural” and sold by the Fresh Fields chain. Here’s why I love them so:

  • They’re not that bad for you (the page doesn’t have the health information, but they have no saturated fat) — in fact, they’re healthier than Reduced Fat Oreos.
  • They taste incredible — the creme is a slightly different consistency, but it’s delicious.
  • The amount of creme isn’t reduced, even though the fat is — it has more than a regular Oreo, though less than a Double Stuff.
And looking back at Monday’s Ping, why not market a jar of this creme, since it’s not all that bad for you? I bet this stuff would taste wicked in between layers of a chocolate cake.

Hey — why not try them out? They’re cheaper online than in the store ($1.95/box) and with one of these coupons you can get free shipping. Let me know what you think of them. -ram

I spent far too many afternoons this summer gorging myself on Oreos and milk. Perhaps it's time I brought that vice back into my life...

So now that you've had a few days to munch on them, what do you think, Paul? Let us all know! :)

All right, all right.

The verdict? Near-perfect. The only problem is that the cookie itself seems to be a bit too brittle, and is relatively easy to break. But it's minor. The cookie is delicious and has the right texture. The creme is just as good as the original.

So, uhm, yeah, they're good. :)

You can get them from Whole Foods... they're the store brand (365 or something like that) in a blue box.

Time to bring this ping back to the top!

I have been buying a soy “ice cream” called Soylicious Cookie Avalanche. I heartily recommend it!! The fake oreo part is not crunchy but is still worth eating straight from the container.

The Newman-O’s? They’re incredible. I’ll never buy regular Oreos ever again.

i just discovered actually organic oreos. made with organic flour and suger, no artifical presertivites, flavors or colors no trans fat and no hydrogenated oils….and no fucking high fructous corn syrup.

What is this then?
