Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Winter Oreo Chocolate Cookies International sighting: Winter Oreo Chocolate Cookies
Posted: 10:05 Wed 19-Jan-2005. Price: about $3.00 for 36 cookies. Location: Target, Hiram, GA, USA. Nutritional unusualness: 70 Calories per cookie.
"Diarmuid Mallon" reports: These "Winter Oreos" are exactly the same as the standard ones, except for "4 Fun Winter Shapes" on the cookies and the rather disturbing blood-red colouring for the filling. So red, these should be Halloween-themed, imho. Also on sale were "Fudge"-covered Oreo cookies - again standard Oreos, but this time completely covered in "brown" or "white" "fudge" (there is also a mint variety). Well, the American interpretation of fudge is rather different to the UK's as it tasted like a cross between wax and cold Lurpak butter. Yuck!

..."Diarmuid's" transatlantic odyssey continues with this seasonal variant of the famously hydrogenated sandwich cookies - while, in other biscuit bizarritude, "Steve" backed up an otherwise routine sighting of Tunnock's Dark Chocolate Caramel Wafer with wholly unsubstantiated claims of a Dark Chocolate Kit Kat in Asda, Edinburgh, providing the semi-plausible details: Nestle have released a very nice addition to the ever popular Kit Kat and I for one hope it isn't just a limited edition. You can't beat dark chocolate and this one is thick with it.

Comment: Dark Chocolate Kit Kats have been seen before, at least here in York (but then with the huge Nestle/Rowntree factory, we are a total testing/dumping ground). I'm sure I once bought a multi-pack from a supermarket.

Sadly, while it -is- dark chocolate, it's also still dreadful cheap Nestle chocolate, tasting of dust and vegetable oil.

Comment: The dark chocolate Kitkats have been in Asda since at least October last year to my knowledge. They taste ok. I don't know about York being a dumping ground, because when I was last there I saw more Cadbury chocolate bars than Nestle ones.

Comment: I quite like the fudge covered oreos but I also wouldn't really class the covering as fudge. I also liked the ritz smores though not as good as making real smores at the campfire.

Comment: i picked up some simpsons ritz smores which are cute, and the hershey smores bar is pretty good. the fudge covered oreos have been around yonks, but i didn't see the winter edition ones. american fudge is more like a chocolate fondant - i'm not sure they even have real fudge. e.l. fudges are great though.

Comment: Yep I've seen the Dark Choc Kitkats in Edinburgh Asda too. Not a huge fan of the dark stuff. I much prefer the non-chunky White Choc ones though.

Comment: OT - just had a Munchies McFlurry and haven't seen It on here.
Posted: 20:03 Wed 19-Jan-2005 by "Phillerena" # permalink comment
Comment: Yes I've had one of those too. Very nice, though they NEVER mix the topping into the McFlurry.

Comment: I love oreos. I'm just glad I don't live in Canada any more. Surrounded by these babies, my ass would be the size of a truck.

Comment: forget oreos. Thats another reason why the US is so fat. People eat half a box. I don't really think that they're that good

Comment: Jo (at work) had a much better description of the Fudge Oreos - "Like eating a Baby Bell without removing the wax"

Comment: The Dark Chocolate KitKats are in Tescos in Reading, but as they only had the multi-packs I left them on the shelf.

Comment: I think its rather unfair that we do not have oreos in England unless you're willing to pay £5 a packet in selfridges

Comment: There is a place in wimbledon in London called "saver centre" where you can buy a box of oreos containing 4 packs of 4 cookies for 79p

Comment: dont wanna ruin anybody's day but my local sainsburys sells the boxes and local tesco sells mini oreos in tubs, ask at your local they might start getting them in as they obviously can

Comment: Oreo biscuits aren't even real food. Why are people eating them? In the 23rd Century we actually have a joke that goes like this: "Hello what are you OH MY GOD SHE'S DEAD WHAT HAS SHE BEEN EATING?" "She has been eating one of the varieties of Oreo biscuit that was available in the 21st century that we are not immune to". I like that joke but maybe it loses something in translation.

Comment: I wish I could find the white-chocolate covered Oreos here in Florida. They fly off the shelves at my local Target store. :O( YUM. They've always been a seasonal item over here, just sold at Christmas..

Comment: I am looking for brown fudge covered Oreo cookies but cannot find where to buy them this year. Anyone out there know where they can be found?
