  1. Oh god. I can see those heading straight to Big Lots. Ugh

    1. Initially, not too appealing. But after visiting the website and reading about them, they actually sound good. Have to make a trip to Target.

        "Have to make a trip to Target."

        I'll see you there, @wadejay26! Sounds pretty tasty to me! Plus, I like the packaging. Pretty.

      2. They sound good to me. I love Jolly Ranchers, so we're probably looking at a similar flavor here.

        1. There are times perusing this board that I think, oh I wish I could get that in England.
          This is not one of those times.

          1. ABOMINATION.

            but I'll probably try it

            1. I think the vanilla-flavored cookies mess it up for me.

                I think a chocolate cookie would clash with the watermelon flavor!

                1. re: ohmyyum

                  They really need to make a pulled pork flavored cookie just for this.

              2. I want to dunk one in a glass of cold milk.

                  1. I saw that commercial & all I could say was "Blech".

                    1. Reviews are surprisingly positive..

                      Love watermelon and the Jolly Rancher watermelon candy is one of the best,,
                      Don't know how that will translate to Oreo's but I gotta go to Target and spend $3 and give it a shot.

                      1. They won't be nearly as much fun to throw off the roofs of tall buildings as real watermelons.

                          But way easier to wing at people. Like throwing stars/shuriken.

                            I can't see Gallagher doing much with these either.

                            1. re: Veggo

                              I wonder how they'll taste with a sprinkling of salt? Or a squeeze of lime and drizzle of honey?

                              1. re: Veggo

                                Is that why you had to leave CT??

                              2. It's a limited time thing, only at Target. I'm sure they will sell all the packages they make.

                                1. I just tried one. It does taste like a jolly rancher at first, but the aftertaste isn't pleasant, IMO. The friend who bought them, though, *loves* them and is going back to Target to stock up.
