Oreo Barbie

If you’re ever stuck wondering, “Geez, what should I get Ryan for <insert holiday here>?”, here’s the answer: Oreo Barbie.

I was in a Kroger the other day and saw a display of these Oreo Barbies and had to do all I could not to buy one. The main thing that held me back: having to admit to buying a Barbie.

Oddly, the official Barbie site has not even a mention of the latest product-shilling Barbie on their site. Only a few stray fan/detractor pages make note of it.

I will admit that I was a bit disappointed to see that Barbie didn’t have bits of Oreo falling off of her face. And with that figure, I doubt she’s ever eaten anything other than the “Reduced Fat” line of Oreos.

Do you think Oreo Barbie tastes like Oreos when you lick her?

I was wondering how long it would take for you to post something along those lines. Thanks for not disappointing.

Hey Robert,
The question is, does the tastable barbie come with a refill of flavor. Just for those people out there. I mean, plastic doesn't taste all that great, and the flavor won't last forever.

I had a bear from Hershey Park that smelled like chocolate for many years after his purchase. If the Oreo and Barbie people can harness that technology they'd have it made.

me -- yeah, the Oreo section was added about a month ago as a logical extension of our more general "food & drink" section.

Does anyone out there know where I can purchase an African-Anerican Oreo Barbie. They are no longer being produced by Barbie.

Howdy folks, I own an Oreo Barbie. She's black... Get it? Well, I've been called an oreo quite a few times in my life, and now use Oreo Barbie as my screen name. Oreo barbies are a little more than just a myth, they're a way of life.
