The Latest Unnecessary Oreo Flavor: Lemon


Isn’t lemon, like, an old person flavor?

For reasons still incomprehensible to us, Oreo continues to release blasé after blasé special-edition cookies, the latest of which reminds us vaguely of weekend trips to grandma’s house and being forced to watch her cats. Impulsive Buy reports the new Lemon Oreos may be similar to Oreo’s previous limited edition “Lemon Twist” cookies, though presumably with at least 50% more lemony-fresh flavor. At least.

Ahem, anyone for a spot of afternoon tea?

Those look delicious. It’s too bad I can’t bake worth a crap.

I love lemon cookies too, but I think I’d rather have the Keebler Lemon Coolers, or whatever they’re called (the super yummy ones dusted with powdered sugar) or even the Archway iced ones. I agree with Dominique, I don’t think a lemon Oreo is necessary. There’s only one Oreo cookie flavor that I like and that’s the original, although the vanilla ones are pretty decent. I occasionally buy the “Heads or Tails” Oreos where one sandwich half is chocolate and the other half is vanilla.

A regional cookie company use to make cookies with lemon filling like this that I loved. They did away with the years and years ago. So I like this and will try them. 🙂
