I'm not ashamed to admit that I love sweets. Cakes, ice cream, cookies... bring on the nom-nom-nom! But this has me a bit perplexed...
Watermelon in cookie form. The perfect summer food?
Nabisco hopes Oreo purists and non-fans alike will be taking a bag of the new, limited edition fruit-flavored cookies to their next picnic.
The Watermelon Oreos, available only at Target (TGT) for $3 a package, feature a bright pink and green creme filling between two vanilla-flavored cookies; the creme bears a strong resemblance to Play-Doh.
Food bloggers had plenty to say about the new summer flavor. JunkFoodGuy wrote that he was expecting an “awful fake watermelon smell to come wafting out” but there was none. “As soon as I bit into one of these Limited Edition Watermelon Golden Oreos, I got an immediate light watermelon taste. I’ll just say it right off the bat…I liked these. A LOT.”
: “The vanilla cookies take up most of the space on the flavor profile pie chart. Seventy-five percent or so. But it’s the subtlety of the cream that makes the cookie work as a whole. Too much watermelon, and the effort would be a mess.
I'm actually allergic to watermelon, but I know that it smells like a heaping pile of sweetness. I'm thinking a trip to Target ((pronounced tar-jeeeeee)) may be necessary.
