Mystery Oreo. It has it all. Intrigue, mystery, but above all, cookies!
I, unlike some extremely uniformed people, am open to a little mystery when it comes to food. Just kidding, that’s not true at all. This is the first “mystery” food I have tried, and it’s only because our Cookie Fairy would never bring something nasty. Plus, they’re Oreos, so I can’t imagine they would come out with a vomit flavored cookie. I’m looking at you, Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans. Earwax, vomit, rotten eggs, sausage, grass, dirt, earthworm, earwax, and soap…wtf Jelly Belly?
When our local “Cookie Fairy” told me that the latest arrival was “weird” I wasn’t anticipating the Mystery Oreo to make an appearance. I thought for sure it would be the new Pumpkin Spice Oreos. Which, pumpkin spice can take over the world, but damn it, stay out of those cookies! Goodness gracious, is nothing sacred? Yeah yeah, I know I’m being irrational. I’m fine with Dunkin’ Donut Oreos, blueberry pie, PB&J, but not pumpkin spice? Short answer: I am not.
Anyway, I was the first to arrive on the scene. There they were, the Mystery Oreo. In all their glory, just sitting there, waiting to be eaten! Sure it was only 0800, but it’s never too early for cookies. NEVER.
The seal hadn’t been broken, so I was pretty pumped. I opened them, took my first victim, and went in for the kill. Sooooooo good. Now, I won’t spoil the flavor, but I thought it was pretty obvious right from the start. A nostalgic kick in the pants!
Twist my arm, why don’t you! From what I could gather, the flavor is most definitely Fruity Pebbles. No contest. Coworkers of mine guessed “lemon”, “gross”, and “don’t like it”, but once I mentioned Fruity Pebbles, they all agreed that had to be it.
Now, these Oreos turned my whole world upside down, like the Upside Down in Stranger Things. Normally I am just a wafer fan. I’ll wipe off the creme filling because it’s typically too much sweetness. With these, I ate the creme filling first, by itself, and then ate the wafers. Whaaaaaaat!? WHO AM I!?
There is a contest thing that is going on for the Mystery Flavor Oreo. Once you have figured out the mystery, you can enter for your chance to win $50,000. It’s definitely a fun thing to do at work. Stick a package in the staff lounge and start a conversation. Along with the Mystery Oreo, we currently have: red velvet, mega stuf, and apple pie. Out of those three, the apple pie are pretty spectacular! Would definitely recommend that flavor.
It’s your turn now, grab a pack and have some fun with it. Have a flavor guessing contest at work or at home, get the whole gang involved. And the prize could be a package of Pumpkin Spice Oreos.
