Summer Fruit or Oreo Cookie?

The latest Frankenfood is Oreo's newest flavor: Watermelon Oreos

Yellow cookie, green and pink watermelon flavored filling.

No word yet on if it will be a seedless variety . . . . I'm not biting to find out.

Whaaaat?? I can't believe it. Do we really need watermelon flavored cookies? Obesity, diabetes, and hypertension in kiss and adults. So easy to connect the dots and yet we get watermelon flavored Oreos.

Okay. Rant over. I know I'm preaching to the choir here.

That sounds utterly, utterly disgusting! (But I bet a lot of people will buy and try anyway.)

700 pounds is as bad as it sounds said...

700 - if they start selling Bacon Oreos I am going to blame you for coming up with the idea. ;-)

I found out about the watermelon ones because my daughter put it on her facebook and she and several of her mid 20s-30s friends posted how they want them. I commented that there is no hope for their generation. We sent them all to college. They were required to take some science - and they will still eat these. . . but then one person commented that they ate one and spit it back out because it tasted nasty.
A negative review can go a long way in getting people to not even try the first bite.

I hope they are not touting this as "healthy." Sigh.

Hi Jane! How can something "water"melon be that dry as a cookie--it doesn't even make sense.

I always thought banana flavored candies didn't taste like bananas either.
