Oreo Cookie Barz

I was in the grocery store the other day and saw a display of Oreo Cookie Barz. I picked the box up, saw that each bar had 35% of your daily saturated fat, and put the box right back down. But then, I paused… really, I did… and thought, “I have an obligation to my Ping Family to reports on this new product.” So I bought a box. But I swore I wouldn’t eat more than half a bar a day.

Unfortunately, there’s not much to report. The bar is pretty much what you’d expect, but perhaps a bit crunchier (the white cream is crunchy rather than smooth). It tastes OK, but the bars themselves are rather small, especially considering how much totally un-nutritious stuff is packed into them. The cookie bits on top are a nice touch, though.

While I doubt I’ll be revisiting the Oreo Cookie Barz beyond this box, I will say they’re worth checking out… once.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
