Unnatural things with flavors should only be done furtively, at home, in the privacy of one's own kitchen.

I've never really liked Oreos, and I've turned into a cookie snob. I got spoiled by tasting Coop bakery and Subway specialty cookies. Now I don't even look at the "Inferior" packaged type.

fat and salt, don't forget the fat and salt

True believers mourn the loss of Hydrox which was in fact Kosher (= usually safe to eat) and introduced in 1908 prior to Oreo's the knock-off cookie being introduced in 1912.

If someone could photoshop Tiger Woods on the front of a pack of Watermelon Oreo's with a blurb on the packaging that says "Goes great with KFC Grease Flavored Nestle Quik", you will be my hero.

Of course, two slices of bread with some choice deli meats are often a hero to me as well.

Make the cookie parts of the Oreo fried chicken batter with the watermelon creme filling and theyd sell like mad.

Also mentholated grape kool aid.

I was kinda pissed to find that our Target has the Watermelon Oreos but didn't have the Candy Corn ones last Halloween, I really wanted to try those.

TV's Vinnie: Why no banana Oreos?

OhioUGrad: Seriously, they are missing out, how hard would it be for them to make graham cracker flavored cookies with key lime filling? Or even vanilla cookies with key lime filling?

/I expect my check in the mail


'Nilla wafers with a banana pudding filling. Whoever makes those will become a millionaire overnight.

Inevitably I eat the entire bag. =<


If you like those, look for Juicy Twists. Their Green Apple flavor is amazing. They also do strawberry, grape, raspberry, orange, coconut, cinnamon, chocolate, and regular black licorice.

fusillade762: I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I dislike watermelon. The actual fruit, I mean. In Jolly Rancher form, watermelon's a blast, but I haven't been able to eat the real thing since I was eight-years-old.

That's probably because watermelon Jolly Ranchers taste nothing at all like watermelon.


True. However, back in high school when we could get our hands on some "beer" (Zima in our case) we would always drop the watermelon and sour apple jolly ranchers into the Zima to improve the taste. It worked for a bit until I found out what "real beer" was, lol! Good memories, I tell ya!

Confabulat: Has grape anything (grape Kool-Aid, grape Jolly Ranchers, ANYTHING) ever tasted even a little like a grape?


That dark Mountain Dew (I forget the actual name) has a rather convincing flavor of Concord grapes.

/Went to amazon to find the key lime icing above.  Found an interesting variety of Oreos that apparently existed but aren't available.

UsikFark: HotWingAgenda: Ah.  This man is the pinnacle of the junk food industry's long term strategy.

EXCEPT... bananas. Bananas (specifically Gros Michel) used to taste quite a bit more like the fruit-gum-flavor-explosion you get from a candy like Starburst. Then the bananas died off on two continents in the '50s and we had to switch species.


Seriously?  I like bananas but dang if they taste more like banana cream or taffy I would be downing the real thing like crazy

More like. Our bananas today are a milder, blander food than they were in the early 20th century.

If there is one artificial flavor that I absolutely despise, it's watermelon. It kinda had a watermelon-ish flavor, but for some reason, it makes me really thirsty.

It's the same thing with tomatoes. I like most things made from tomatoes, but I dislike tomatoes themselves.

Probably comes with being forced to eat them as a child.

Smidge204: So, after all that, we know:

1) The author hates the overwhelming sweetness of Oreo cookies

2) The author hates watermelon

3) The author likes Game of Thrones

4) Watermelon Oreos aren't quite as sweet as Sherbert Oreos.

And this article was supposed to be about Watermelon Oreos, but the only information it contains is a comparison to some other flavor I've never heard of. Good job.

I was like that until my mid 20s or so. I'd eat them on a hamburger or something when I was a kid, but could never bring myself to eat a plain tomato. Now, I eat several pints of grape tomatoes a week. And I actually don't mind slicing a tomato, salting it and then eating it by itself.

My husband bought these on Friday.  I didn't taste any watermelon--they're just sickeningly sweet.

GIS disproves this theory.

It also teaches us that we should probably not GIS for topics we found on Fark. /cringe

Heard about this one from a collector. I would've loved to have been at the genius meeting that approved it.

Watermelon Oreos just seem like a product a consumer would buy once- like Bud Dry, Pepsi Crystal, Zima coolers. They know it; hence the limited edition.

Exactly, civilized people call it pop.
 
2013-06-17 02:05:35 PM  
shiat, that's weird enough I think I have to try it...

speaking of weird flavors, there's matcha kit kat bars at a japanese market ive been wanting to try. $6 for a bag though

No, fly-over country calls it pop. Everyone on the east and the west coast calls it soda. I still call it soda even after living in Minnesota for 15 years after growing up in NYC.

Oh, you poor, sad, silly coaster. Soda is club soda (which is different than seltzer), as in scotch and soda. One should never refer to pop as soda because it results in idiot bar tenders and waitresses from the coast bringing one a scotch and pop, which is not only uncivilized, but it is a cruel, cruel thing to do to innocent scotch. This has happened to me more than once, but what can one expect from people raise to speak so imprecisely?

The fact is that Midwestern speech is the speech known the world over as American. Everything else is just a dialect. You people from the coasts have better transportation, better access to the arts, and access to better, cheaper food. We have the language.

I prefer the following:

Hydrox cookies
Bosco chocolate
Clark Bars
Royal Crown Cola
Archway Homestyle Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies

Not all together, of course.

I can only find a few of those things anymore.

I had my initial reaction before reading the article; after, I would expect that. Before, I was kind of thinking more like the melon flavor they use in Japan for soda or whatever; sort of light and sweet but not overbearing.

Sigh.
