There are some things in this world that are completely unexpected and wonderful. I am sure the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich was met with some resistance when housewives started smooshing them together. But then there are ideas that should stay right there. Just an idea. For example… Swedish Fish Oreo’s. I saw this trending on Facebook yesterday and my first thought was ‘are these on the grocery store shelves right next to pigs feet?’ But then I thought, what if… Just WHAT IF they hit the jack pot and this is amazing. So I had to try.
The cookie, is of course, just the Oreo. But instead of that fancy little design embossed on the cookies, a warning should be printed. “Don’t bother with a glass of milk.”
The filling is obviously where the problem lies. It does taste exactly like a Swedish Fish. The texture is not like the classic cream filling. Its rubbery. Half gummy, half frosting. I am thinking they poured the Swedish Fish syrup right into some Oreo cream filling, stirred it up, and called it good.
The combination… Not good, my friends. Not good.
Now before I even read this comment, I had the exact same thought.
I couldn’t brush my teeth fast enough, and I didn’t even eat a whole cookie. As the King left for work this morning he said he could still taste it. This was a little traumatizing for us and to recover we are sticking to chicken broth and toast today. No butter. Our stomachs can’t handle much for the next few days.
