My Oreo Fruit Laws
Let’s talk a little about combinations. I definitely have my opinions, some are more popular, others are a little more out there as per normal. Ok, let’s talk about fruit combinations. As a child, my palate always liked “red/pink/purple flavored” things. This meant that I was the cherry, strawberry, fruit punch, grape, welch’s pop, tahitian treat, berry whatever lovin kind of gal. Get my drift? I always left “green/yellow/black/orange/brown/white flavors” alone! However, I was pleasantly surprised (and happy might I add) that on rare occasion “brown” meant root beer, “orange” could be pear, and “green” could be apple or… watermelon!
I HAVE FRUIT RULES! Generally, I like fruit to be alone. I mean dead lonely. Like, not with chocolate, not with nuts, not even in deserts, not with batters. Alone. Fried is ok. (mmmm dried apricots)
Fruits are ok as…
any drinks (juice, mixed, alcohol, soda pop…)
as their original beautiful selves
Fruits not ok WITH…
When I saw the Watermelon Oreo, I immediate thought this ain’t gonna work. Not my style, not my thing, NO. But what the hell. I have to try snacks as a reviewer. Sometimes I need to give myself a challenge and test my boundaries. Here we go. I open the package getting a whiff of vanilla-y melon. It kind of makes me nauseous. My mouth goes into stance. I take one out and break one cookie for fear that I might gag if I take a regular bite.
At first tiny bite, my mouth tenses up… BUT I was ok! Actually the melon fruit taste was not overpowering at all. The vanilla cookie that Oreo makes is actually calming down the filling which makes for an ok experience. I definitely could not finish the ONE cookie, but it was not as bad as I thought. Call me weak and dramatic, but I was proud that I came out feeling ok.
The round up:
How many did I end up eating? 1/3 of a cookie (really pathetic)
Would I buy it again? NO
Would I recommend it? NO
Do I still like Oreo cookies? Yes, but please no fruity flavors.
Thanks for reading!
