Yay or nay?
The biscuit part really doesn't taste nice. :(
It looks nice.
but they are good.
Then suddenly, one day, I tasted them for the first time and went YEUCH.
It was like the moment when you were a kid when you realised that beer tasted good and not horrible.
She sends me Oreos. Dipped in milk, they are the greatest biscuit known to man. Anyone who disagrees is a fucking pleb.
they are THE best thing for late night snacks. Glass of freezing cold milk and a packet of oreos...mmmmmm
But they look fucking delicious!
Everytime I watch it, I pray for the dog to bite him!
They really are'nt gonna beat Chocolate covered hobnobs in my eyes.
Or in fact the chocolate and caramel digestives!
they aren't as great as they were. :(
Oreo shakes on the other hand are AMAZING.
Oreo Mcflurry somewhere. It might not have been in this country... Actually McDonalds may not even make them at all in which case they probably should do as I reckon they'd be awesome.
Where on earth do you get an 'Oreo Shake' from!
blend with vanilla ice cream and milk. You have an Oreo shake, pretty much the greatest food known to man.
It's ginger nuts and ginger nuts only in my world!
i had oreo cheesecake at the cheese cake factory in san Francisco and it was amazing.
I absolutely adore that chain and wish to god that they'd expand into the UK.
I'm sure they'll sell pretty well for a while, but they'll struggle against established British brands.
ONLY IF U HAVE MILK! on their own they are rubbish but with milk they make sense.
why is everyone wanking on about them as if they're brand new? i've been buying oreos quite easily in many shops over here for years.
this is a major marketing drive. Nabisco aim to make the Oreo brand as ubiquitous as the Digestive or the Rich Tea.
I much prefer me shortbread.
As the article points out, part of the reason why Oreos are so loved in America is because they're part of the American consciousness. We obviously don't share that history.
Besides, the simple fact is that they just don't taste that great. They're a 5 or 6 out of 10 biscuit. Why would British people switch to Oreos when they can buy chocolate hobnobs and the like with ease?
</needlessly serious about snack foods>
Biscuits/cookies that are better:
Chocolate covered Hobnobs
Chocolate chip cookies
Chocolate and caramel digestives
They're basically the same as custard creams (odviously with chocolate biscuit). Anyone who says differently is a pleb.
blaaast has got the right idea. I'd add to that list 'Boasters'. I think that's what they are called.
but have strong bones and teeth
Everyone has glasses of milk, they're amazing.
Glass of milk + chocolate chip cookie == yummy yummy time!
nom nom nom
they're too sweet. i like the slight saltiness of a hobnob. rowr.
The biscuit part tastes like dog biscuit... all stale and hard
But the creamy bit is nice, but not nicer than teacakes:
