I’m always one to give kudos to great creative brands.
I mean, marketing genius moves in which I can partake in something great for the first time knowing it has really been around for years. Yes, I love coca-cola, but dazzle it with CHERRY coke? Oooh! How different!
Recently though, I found out about the latest OREO cookie ‘flavor.’ Now, I haven’t tried ALL the various OREOs that have been released, (no thank you, pumpkin spice Oreos), but I am very much impressed each time a new spin on the classic cookie is announced. However, the latest spin is–to say very honestly–BORING.
The brand has announced the unveiling of the…OREO STUFFED OREO. Yep, it’s exactly what you think. It’s the cookie with a filling that is basically creme with more….Oreo. Talk about a WAH-WAH moment. Have they run out of ideas? I’m sure they have not tackled it all yet? I would even be more interested in a buffalo sauce flavored Oreo! How about a Swedish fish Oreo? Salt and Vinegar? SOMETHING?
I want to give the cookie a bit of grace so I’m not writing it off quite yet, but please do not just settle for stuffing your latest cookie with… your cookie.
