THEY FINALLY DID IT...

 It is a pretty safe thing to say that 
OREO COOKIES
are at the tip top of
AMERICA'S TIP TOP FAVORITE COOKIE LIST..
but..
*shhhh
I've NEVER liked Oreos.
Our kids loved them...and still do.
When daughter, STACY LEIGH, was little, she would take one apart,
lick all the white filling out and stick them back together...
She surely did

 

 There's all kinds...
OREO CAKESTERS
which didn't favor my taste buds AT ALL.
Reason being mostly...
they are still a cookie and I don't care for SOFT cookies.





OREOS just seem to go with MILK.

I've always loved cookies with a cup of good
hot coffee
but the OREO just never tasted all that great to me...

I love MINT...
these are pretty good.
Still...not my favorite cookie..

DOUBLE STUFF
SPRING OREOS
all kinds..
never made it with me
UNTIL.....  ♥







MIXED BERRY ICE CREAM OREO..

O HONEY 
There's no way you can eat JUST ONE...



NO WAY, JOSÉ...!   
I think I just ate a WHOLE package...

I can't even believe it...

and, I am VERY happy with
the photos...
I saw a photo of these beautiful, pink-filled cookies on Google that looked
JUST LIKE MINE...but it was someone elses..
These cookies not only TASTE great..
they take a mighty good picture !
In other words..
THEY ARE VERY PHOTOGENIC..
:-) .
MERCY.....
THEY'RE GOOD !
I do believe that THIS is the most
DELICIOUS SHADOW SHOT
I've ever taken.....
XOXO bj

I would be in sugar shock....but my hubby LOVES these! And they are very pretty! Enjoy your holiday weekend, my friend! I hope it cools off there SOON! ♥

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

It's funny but they've never been a favorite of mine either. I just saw one today that was turned into Mickey Mouse, it was really cute! The berry ones are very pretty and if I have a chance to try one I will! Happy Labor Day Weekend BJ:@)

Theresa said...

I LOVE Oreos and steer my grocery cart AWAY from the cookie aisle! Therefore I have not seen these but they do look mighty yummy! Of course you could post just the package and it would look yummy! Good thing I don't live closer to you, you would have to add me as a dependent!

Have a blessed long weekend! HUGS!

NanaDiana said...

Well, I never thougth I would meet another person that didn't like Oreos...thought I was the only one on the planet...but I just.don't.like.them. After hearing your rave reviews I don't think I'm even going to TRY them...because one package would probably NOT be enough.

Great pictures and I love your new header! xo Diana

Sandy said...

Lord, now I need to go out and buy some of these little delights... maybe I won't like them (hopefully)!

Cute post

LV said...

I love these cookies. I buy the little mini ones. That way I do not eat too many.

Donnie said...

They sure do look good. I like the new mint ones but haven't seen those in my market yet. They usually aren't my favorite cookie either but Don and the grands love them.

laurie said...

wow, those are very pretty, we won't have those here in Canada, well Ontario , for another probably three years,, we are so slow to get these new products I've never saw the mint ones and the double stuff ones were forever to come here,, which I love I'm proud to say,, my favorite,, with anything, I don't buy them often but I do love them,,

Designs By Pinky said...

My favorite is the Oreo with the yellow outside and the cream inside! I ahve never seen these berry ones so will definitely try them! They look awesome! Thanks, BJ! XO, Pinky

Barbara F. said...

You know, I never cared for them either except when I went to a family bbq and my cousin made a "dirt cake" - omg, I wanted the whole dayum pot (she actually put it in a child's beach pail with a shovel). Then, there was a limited edition Oreo called Dulce de Leches - omg once again. Of course these are no longer available. I have to try these berry ones. xo

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh my I will have to try those. You are so funny and I can't believe you don't like Oreos.

Kathleen Grace said...

I love the now look on your blog Bj. I haven't heard of these but they look spectacular, and I DO like Oreos:>)

Cozy Little House said...

I was just thinking today I needed to open my Oreos! Haven't tried that flavor yet.
Brenda

Marigene said...

I have never been an Oreo fan, either. I do make the Oreo truffles about once a year, though!
Have a great weekend, BJ...

janis said...

Oreos have always been and always will be my favorite store bought cookie. And I love them with a glass of milk for dunking & a cup of Coffee for drinking with♥ I had to cut down on buying them though because they are deadly to my addictive diabetic Hubby. However~ My All Time Favorite Cookie is My Sister Julie's fabulous homemade Raisin oatmeal... NO ONE MAKES THEM AS GOOD AS HER!!! And the best part is my Hubby doesnt love them :)

Marydon said...

OMGolly! Pink to boot! We don't have them yet ... but we are sold on the mint, can't stop so we don't buy them often. Not much into cake cookies either.

Have a lovely holiday weekend.
TTFN ~
Hugs,
Marydon

Love Of Quilts said...

I do believe that shadow shot works for me as well....it sure does look its part. I haven't gotton the taste test as of yet. Trish

Blondie's Journal said...

My hips and I wished that I didn't love Oreos's so very much!! Always have and I could wipe out a half a package in one sitting. The new flavor is very pretty and you did a wonderful job photographing them! I may break down and try them! ;-D

XO,
Jane

Linda said...

Whoo hoo! I will definitely look for these! Thanks for such a fun post!

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

oh they are FAByoulous photos ! Now I never cared for Oreos either, unless they were smashed up and put in ice cream..... but those pink centers are callin' my name...

FABBY'S LIVING said...

I love Oreos, and this mint ones are making my mouth water...we don't have them here yet,...maybe, I'll consider myself lucky, this way I won't eat the whole bag!! Have a great weekend. Hugs, FABBY

dana said...

OMG...I am now on the hunt for some Mixed Berry Ice Cream Oreo cookies....they look fabulous. And if they got rave reviews from you, well, I know they are!!

Hope you get some weather relief soon. We are expecting rain tomorrow....followed by a MAJOR cool down! AT LAST!!

HPS!! L, Dana

Jennifer said...

Oh my word!! It's been ages since I've browsed the cookie aisle. I'm so glad you wrote about these or else I would have missed all that yummy goodness!!

And thank you for coming to visit my blog and commenting!!

Have a FABULOUS weekend!

Kaye Swain - SandwichINK for the Sandwich Generation said...

Oh my! They are a cute new cookie. I do love the oreos - regular and low fat AND the REALLY love the vanilla oreos - so much so, that this Sandwich Generation granny nanny can't buy THOSE coz, like you with these pink yummies, I can NOT control myself - and go through a package in just a day or so. Hmmmm. maybe I'd best play it safe and enjoy these pinkies on your site to save my tummie :) Have a lovely Pink Saturday!

Sweet Tea said...

I like Oreo's but haven't had one in ages - I had no idea there were all the varieties. I rarely taste a cookie I don't love, so I bet I'd love them ALL! Your photos are yummy on their own. :-)

Nancy said...

I love Oreos with a glass of COLD milk. The berry ones sound good and I loved reading about how you aren't a big fan until you found these. Have a safe and happy weekend,

Nancy

Beth said...

I've never heard of these. They sound great, though. My favorite use of oreos would be crushed and in an ice cream dessert. Hope "Lee" brings you some rain!
Hugs, Beth

Patti said...

Yu are too, too funny! I haven't seen these...look yummy, though!

The White Farmhouse said...

Oh lawdy! Those are incredible! I always thought the cream filling tasted like toothpaste. Kinda boring cookie actually. I tried one of the berry ones and my taste buds were doing a party! I love those! Love the photos!

xinex said...

I have never tried those, BJ. I did't even know they exist. They do look good and I will take your word for it..Christine

forgetmenot said...

BJ, I'm with you--Oreo's are way overrated, but these new "pink" ones do look good. I'm a sucker--I'll try them --just on your rave review. Have a great weekend. Mickie ;)

Pondside said...

I'll just have to hope that we don't get them up here or I'll be the size of a house!

Stephanie Suzanne ♥ Queen of Dreamsz said...

Hi BJ,

I think the original but double stuffed are my favorite. Those pink ones do look inviting though. :0) I'm glad you found one that you like...No one should go through life without Oreo cookies. {giggles}

Hugs,
Stephanie ♥

Bill said...

Well, pretty lady, those pink filled ones do look and sound "berry" delicious! I know -- bad pun, bad Bill! I'll accept my fate if you insist that I try every type of Oreo you described, with milk, with coffee, taken apart/reassembled with mixed fillings. Speaking of fillings, I'll need to make a dental appointment right after I endure the punishment I feel strongly that I deserve.

One request though -- no pictures, OK? Chocolate covered teeth is just NOT a good look for me!

Fun post, BJ! I think those cookie companies will start calling you right away trying to hire you as their food stylist/photographer!

Have fun with family this weekend ... till you're whisked away to some glamerous location for the first professional photo shoot! Cookie shoot?

Oh shoot!

Bye for now ... ;)

Michele said...

is it really true? i have to find some of these cookies right away! thanks for sharing! happy pink saturday... xo

jeanne said...

Good morning bj, your post is definitely very professional. Oreo should hire you. HA! I have not seen these cookies on the shelf. No surprise, I don't eat Oreo cookies either. BUT, now I could definitely be talked into eating the new Oreo cookie. It DOES look good. Of course that's because YOU took the photos. I mean it sister friend. You really know your way around a camera.

BTW, I have never seen pink toilet paper like Claudie uses either. Remember when there used to be pink tissue and toilet paper but the dye bothered some people? However, NEVER that pink. Leave it to Claudie.

Have a wonderful weekend.
Love, Jeanne

Elaine said...

I have not seen these pink Oreos yet..maybe i'll take a look next time I'm at the store. I think the grand daughters would love them. Have a safe and happy weekend

Pat said...

Orea are good - but I prefer mashed potatoes! ;-)

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

My goodness, those pink ones look scrumptious! I've always loved any kind of Oreo but haven't tried this new one. I need to correct that right away! Have a great weekend! Shannon

Ann said...

OH HONEY!!!, I'll be out looking for those pink beauties!!!
Ann

Rettabug said...

You are EVIL, BJ!! I did NOT need another goodie to love in my life. You KNOW I'm going to HAVE to try them, doncha'?
My left hip thanks you, my right hip thanks you.....

Daniella said...

Thanks BJ for visiting me today!
I LOVE your blog!! I am your newest follower!!
You are so right, regular Oreo's are ok, but not my favorite either.
I've never seen these new pink gorgeous cookies!! I will have to try to find them!!!
Happy Pink Saturday!!

Debbie Moore at Slice of Pie Entertaining and Cookbooks said...

How yummy! Sometimes when we have "girlie movie parties" we just have Oreos and milk! Thanks for sharing and thanks for visiting my site.

Anita said...

Gosh.. those are almost too pretty to eat - but I think I could manage one or two ;)
Have a fabulous weekend! :)

Michele said...

thank you for the nice comments to my blog and for the follow! i'm following you too! xo michele

Ralph said...

Oh I like Oreos, but as a traditionalist, the original is the way to go. I do not want fruit, mocha and double stuffed Oreos. The basic Oreo from 1903 or whenever is preferred. A glass of milk as a kid or a stout coffee now as a side to a great cookie!

Patti said...

Wow! I never heard of the Mixed Berry variety.

This is one tasty shadow shot entry, BJ! Thanks for stopping by today.

I love Oreos but I do agree with you about soft cookies. Crunchy crispy cookies are much more yummilicious.

Glad your grands are ready to return to school.

Dina said...

They have some new colors since I was last in America.
An Oreo shadow, good one!

Cassie said...

I've never been crazy for oreos either, but might try these new ones on for fun. It is a tasty looking Shadow Shot!! Have a great weekend.

Twiggy said...

Lovely post and photos!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Oohhhhh...I think I must have some of these and SOON! HOWARD!!!!
:) Here he comes..(have I told you he just LOVES to run to the store? :)

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Looks like it's hard not to take a picture of just one too! :-)

I LOVE MY SHADOW

I love my shadow,
My shadow loves me;
We chat together
And don’t disagree!

My shadow and I
Prefer not to shout
As we go walking
And rambling about.

My shadow’s so wise,
I ask what she thinks;
She’s happy to share,
And then nods and winks.

My shadow and I
Are best buds, you see;
That’s why we try hard
To always agree!

Rita said...

You really brought the oreo to new heights. I have to admit they don't really do it for me. Great photos as usual.

mississippi artist said...

I am not an oreo fan either, but these look worth a try-they do look delicious!

Joan said...

Loved your post.
I love Oreos, but haven't had one in ages. Mmmmm, I might need to put them on my list now!
Great photos.

Genie said...
