Nooooooo! Say it is not true! Watermelon Oreos

Watermelon Oreos: The Latest Twist on an Iconic Cookie

The Watermelon Oreos, available only at Target (TGT) for $3 a package, feature a bright pink and green creme filling between two vanilla-flavored cookies; the creme bears a strong resemblance to Play-Doh. Two cookies contain 150 calories, 7 grams of fat and 21 grams of carbohydrates.
Food bloggers had plenty to say about the new summer flavor. JunkFoodGuy wrote that he was expecting an “awful fake watermelon smell to come wafting out” but there was none. “As soon as I bit into one of these Limited Edition Watermelon Golden Oreos, I got an immediate light watermelon taste. I’ll just say it right off the bat…I liked these. A LOT.”
FoodJunk.com’s conclusion: “The vanilla cookies take up most of the space on the flavor profile pie chart. Seventy-five percent or so. But it’s the subtlety of the cream that makes the cookie work as a whole. Too much watermelon, and the effort would be a mess.”
"We think that Watermelon is a fun summer creme flavor that goes great with our Golden Oreo cookie," a spokeswoman for Mondelez Global (MDLZ) said in an email. (Mondelez owns Nabisco, which makes Oreos, in addition to other snack foods including Triscuit, Wheat Thins, Chips Ahoy and Ritz. It was formerly Kraft Foods Inc. and is a spinoff of Kraft Food Groups, Inc.)
Weird, counterintuitive flavors aren’t new; newfangled concoctions are one way snack food makers have to differentiate themselves in a crowded industry. Earlier this year Lay’s (owned by Pepsico Inc.) unveiled Cheesy Garlic Bread potato chip flavor, the winner of its $1 million "Do Us a Flavor" contest. And (in an arguably stomach-turning move) Pringles last year introduced White Chocolate Peppermint and Pumpkin Pie Spice potato chip flavors.
“These line extensions have been happening for quite some time and will continue to happen. It brings excitement to a category and brings consumers to a particular aisle in the grocery store,” says Erin Lash, a senior equity analyst at Morningstar who covers consumer product companies. Consumers are still keeping a tight grip on their wallets, and have even shown more willingness to trade down to lower-priced offerings, Lash says. So branded companies have to continuously innovate to compel consumers to stay loyal and continue to purchase their items over a cheaper private-label brand.
Oreo itself has a history of limited-edition cookies, which has included gingerbread, candy corn, dulce de leche, birthday cake, Creamsicle, and Shure, Bert, another recent addition..

I had some sherbet oreos the other day (3 flavors of sherbet crčme) in vanilla cookies. Were not too bad, but nothing is better than original oreos.

Is this one of the five-a-day?
That, I can cope with!

Can you take them into California without declaring them?
Will the airport doggie think of them as fruit or biscuit!

Have you tried them new Lays........




never Mind the y Wright to the Pic....... I haul perfectly fine Potatoes from Farmington Az aka Navajos Potatoes to Frito Lay in Casa Grande Az.

to be turned into Waffles and Chickens.....

Next time my Dispatcher will give me a Load I think I will hijack the Load and drop it off at Kettle One......

at least I can party in Holland ........




take this Amerika...... it only takes one angry German Truck Driver ...... to ruin your Taste Buds.........

You know what is the sad/good Thing about the new Waffles and Chicken Flavor? A 14 Year old Teen Terrorist here in Arizona won the Contest. LOL good for her Frito Lay will pay for the 1st Years of College.....


Bad for me....... in the old Days I knew something was fishy asking for a sour Pickles and Strawberry Ice Cream......

when I picked up my Teens at the last Day at School they had Frito Bags with weird Flavors in there Hand ...... stepping into my Abarth......

Should I be alarmed..............


I guess I will find out at the Dinner Table...............

if my Bee Drones worked..........:big laugh:.....

They were here last year. My other half bought his daughters a couple of packages at christmas as a gag gift. They loved them, I wanted however, to vomit.

Don't mess with the classics, it's 50 shades of wrong when they do that crap!
