Oblong Oreos

Hopefully Paul won’t mind me stealing a link he found here, but I’m covering his Ping for him tomorrow, so I don’t feel too guilty.

The next new type of Oreo coming to market? The oblong Oreo. This “limited edition” (read: trial run) item will be focused on dunking and will have “soaked,” “soggy,” and “dry” lines on the cookie for “fun and easy dunking.”

Fun and easy dunking? Last time I checked, it didn’t take a mathematician to figure out how to dunk an Oreo. And fun? I think too many things are labeled “fun.” There aren’t that many fun things in life. Trust me.

My biggest concern, though, is that the twisting will become an issue. And how is one truly supposedly to enjoy an Oreo if they can’t twist it? I stay up late at nights worrying about things like this.

Rest assured, when the oblong Oreo hits the market, we’ll be there to bring you the news.

This isn't really on the whole "oblong" thing however walking through the grocery store two days ago, I did see Blondie Oreos (I think that is what they are called). The premise behind these it that the cookie part is white, not the usual black/brown color. Are Oreos really struggling that bad in the consumer area to create such things?

I didn't even know about the oblongs...now I am concerned about the twisting...isn't that the whole point of the cookie to begin with?

Jess,

Was the filling vanilla or chocolate? If it's chocolate, you might
be thinking of the "Golden Oreos". Unless I'm just way off on this
one.



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!
