Chocolate Strawberry OREOS Just Made Our Shopping List

Oreo’s newest flavor will surly pique the interests of chocolate-covered strawberry fans. The confectionary-covered fruit is arguably one of the most romantic desserts around. Imagine how much more romantic it’ll be in OREO form.

According to Delish the new Chocolate Strawberry Oreo is already in select store shelves. The cookie features a chocolate creme center with a dab of strawberry creme inside, hearkening back to the original dessert. As far as concepts go, this looks pretty promising and is supposed to boast a pretty bold aftertaste.

The new cookie variation will only be available for a limited time, hopefully sticking around at least until Valentine’s Day.

Key-Lime-Ghostbusters-Twinkies

The new Ghostbusters movie is a little more than a month away and promotions are starting to kick into gear for the franchises’ reboot. Hostess, best known for their iconic Twinkies, teamed up with Sony Entertainment to release these rad looking Key Lime Slime Twinkies.

Almost identical to a regular Twinkies, the new flavor boasts a bright green, lime-flavored creme filling.

You can find the limited-edition Ghostbuster Twinkies available at grocery stores nationwide. You’ll probably want to hurry, though. Whether or not the movie does well, these spooky-scary Twinkies look pretty damn cool.

Ghostbusters hits US theaters July 15.

Today I Learned: Oreo Dunkaroos Really Do Exist

oreo-dunkaroos

Back in July, someone invented earth-shattering M’Oreos, with many claiming that this would be the closest we’d ever get to Oreo Dunkaroos. Even the Twitterverse bemoaned this lack of Oreo innovation.

 

Apparently, mankind wasn’t reaching it’s full potential. Something had to be done and yet, the Oreo company remained silent on the issue. So we moved on, filling our days with doge memes and Rob Ford.

That is, until we stumbled upon these late last night:

oreo-dunkaroos

Yes, the Dunkaroo version of Oreos exist and they’re called “Cookie Sticks ‘n Creme Dip.” Apparently, they’ve been around for a while now and you can buy them at Target, Walmart and even Amazon. We understand if you’re experiencing at mix of shock, disbelief, and uncontrollable joy right now. We’ve got extra undies on deck.

If this is something you’ve known for years, let us know so we can shame you for keeping this a secret for so long.

Deep-Fried Oreo Creme Filling Is Next-Level Perfection

oreo1

The problem with deep-fried Oreos (battered, sugar-coated, the kind you find at the county fair) is that they’re too dry. There’s a reason we dip these things in milk. Putting extra breading around mushy wafers only exacerbates a pre-existing condition.

Thankfully, we have Nick from Dude Foods to set us straight. Instead of turning Oreos into donuts, he decided to fry the cookies directly, grinding them into a crumble, bathing them in egg wash, rolling them around Double Stuf creme filling, and, finally, drop-frying those sonsumbitches for about 20 seconds each.

The result, by Nick’s account, was gooey and melty and not entirely unlike the Oreo-coated deep fried ice cream he made previously. Feeling adventurous? Oreo cookie butter would make an excellent dipping sauce.

Hershey to Launch First New Candy in Three Decades

lancaster-hersheys

For the first time in 30 years, Hershey is set to launch a new candy brand. The soft caramel crèmes, called Lancasters will be released in both the U.S. and China beginning January 2014, another first for the company.

The name Lancaster comes from Milton Hershey’s first candy company, the Lancaster Caramel Co. which was founded in 1886. After two-and-a-half years of research, the company found that the “comforting richness” candy market wasn’t being properly utilizedThis, and the fact that China already has a preference for rich caramel and milk-based candy, led to the birth of the new crèmes.

Lancasters will come in three flavors: vanilla caramel, caramel, and vanilla raspberry. This is all well and good, but I have two important questions. First, who comes up with these candy categories, and is there a niche for salty smoky bacon candy? Second, will these melt into our cookies and in-between our graham crackers with the ooziness we’ve come to expect?

We’re crossing our fingers this new kid on the block doesn’t disappoint.
