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

What's next?

Candy Corn Mac N Cheese?

  1. 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:

    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'm upset that they violated each other. And that they seem so happy doing it.

        They have a forbidden love. It's almost dirty...candy-flavored cookies. Naughty junk food.

          Gross, you guys -- sounds like one would need to put a prophylactic on one's tongue.

          (but since I don't like candy corn, Candy-corn flavoured Oreos sounds sufficiently nasty enough to avoid, anyway)

    2. I'm not gonna lie, I'd at least try them

      1. China is a player in the Oreo game too. Mango and orange, grape and (can't remember), "birthday cake," "ice cream," peanut butter...I'm waiting for them to start challenging Lay's potato chips for odd varieties. Cucumber or cheese lobster oreos, anyone?

          it's peach and grape...
          i wish the grape was a grape wafer and creme filling. or even a golden oreo with just grape filling. i would be willing to try either...

            They're still sitting on the grocery store shelf.

              Mind you, over at Supertaster James Norton states: Target and Oreos have teamed up on a product that nobody has asked for: Oreos filled with candy corn–flavored cream.

          2. 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.
