C is for cookie


Have you seen the latest innovation in Oreo-dom (warning: annoying audio)?

Apparently the Nabiscoites got sick of messing with the filling (purple for Easter! Green and red for Christmas! Peanut-butter-flavor! Double-Stuf! Triple-Stuf! Quadruple-loople-Stuf!) and moved on to the cookie.

Oreo Dunkers are a limited-edition version of the cookie, thinner and longer, supposedly to make dunking in milk easier. Although if you had a problem with that in the first place, perhaps you are not advanced enough to savor the fine taste of an Oreo anyway.

the pricing of the new version is the interesting part... at least at the store i shop at (starmarket, cambridge, ma) these come in at $4.56 a pound, where the conventional round oreo is at $3.55 a pound.

Though we live in crappy Canada, where the latest Oreo innovation is the Golden (yawn), Dave uses the Oreo matrix as a measure of American innovation: whenever we go to Wegman's in Niagara Falls, NY (about once every six weeks), he checks to see if there's a new kind of Oreo. And there always is.

Oreo filling is the grossest, but the cookie part is darker and better than most chocolte wafers. If Nabisco ever puts out a cookie-only version, they will own me.

These are fun but they really need to be double stuff. There is just too high a cookie to filling ratio.

Can anyone tell me the name of the 70s Nabisco cookie - two vanilla wafers with marshmallow in the middle? Came in a bright blue package with the name of the cookie and the Nabisco logo??? Please email me at msd10830@aol.com. THANKS!
