Micah's Elder Empire print sale is over, so I needed to replace the last blog post with something. But this is kind of last-minute, and I'm not sure what to say, so instead I'm going to make one of the most random posts I ever have and tell you about the Great Oreo Taste Test.
It was the birthday of one of my good friends this past weekend, and in lieu of a birthday cake, we bought every flavor of Oreo they had at the grocery store and tasted them all. With milk.
I know you guys burn to know my Oreo opinions, so here are my rankings (leaving out original and Double Stuf, which are obviously classics):
7.) Mint. Why would you ruin Oreos with mint? What is wrong with you?
6.) Mega Stuf. I never thought I would say this, but there was actually too much creme in these. I feel like a heretic for typing those words. Double Stuf is the perfect amount.
5.) Red Velvet. Not enough cream cheese flavor. This is like a regular Oreo that glimpsed a red velvet cake through a window one time.
4.) Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. Everyone else rated this higher and the Cinnamon Bun lower, but what can I say? I just really liked the top three.
3.) Cinnamon Bun. Really gives the impression of biting into a tiny Cinnabon. This and #2 are basically a tie for me.
2.) Strawberry Shortcake. It's flavored after strawberry shortcake ice cream pops, not actual strawberry shortcake, and it's a flavor that translates well to cookie form. My friend put the cookies in the freezer for a few minutes, and I recommend it.
1.) Birthday Cake. Still the best alternate Oreo flavor. It's the only one I'd actually choose over classic Double Stuf. Sometimes.
And thus ended the Great Oreo Taste Test. Let me know your favorite Oreo flavors in the comments!
I will use this information to destroy you.
This book has been out forever at this point.
