Candy Corn Oreos ... is nothing sacred these days?

Are you upset that Oreos are "violated," or candy corn? Either way, it's a limited-time special holiday thing, and an additional offering to regular Oreos. It's not like they banned regular Oreos.
I have more fond childhood associations with candy corn (special Halloween treat!) than Oreos, frankly. Together, they sound disgusting. However, as long as the world doesn't stop producing candy corn, I don't really care about this Oreo flavor. I wouldn't buy a pack of Oreos, anyway, and this would not motivate me to. However, now I do wish I'd picked up some candy corn when we went grocery shopping tonight.
I was more wierded out when Peeps started making all sorts of holiday shapes in addition to the classic pink and yellow bunnies and chicks. Oreo has been fiddling with their product for years...Double-Stuf, Minis, Double Delight, Golden. And if you go to Wikipedia, they have oodles of flavors that go way beyond what the US gets served up: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oreo.
Chile and Argentina get Dulce de Leche Oreos. That sounds appealing. Yum!
Or did you mean candy corn was debased? My love for candy corn is not lessened by this Oreo abomination. :)
I saw these on FB and sent the link to my college roommate, who is OBSESSED with candy corn. She immediately went out and bought some, but pronounced them an EPIC FAIL. She said they just taste like vanilla sandwich cookies, and not very good ones at that. Since I detest candy corn and am not a big fan of sandwich cookies, I'll pass.
