All of the sudden I feel priviledged that I never have to "search" for Oreos, they are available at just about every grocery store here!


My favourite are the overpriced double-stuff Mint Creme kind. Big grin

Peanut butter is also good.

Count me in on those double-stuff Oreos (UTAFlyinghigh, let me know if you can't get those in your neck of the woods and I'll send you some--they're awesome!).

But if you're a fan of vanilla, do try the Trader Joe's vanilla bean Joe Joes. These things are so sweet I'm about to lapse into a diabetic coma after eating two, but they're sooooooo good!

When I was a child at Tahiti I used to eat Oreos...then, back in France, Oreos weren't on sale here, which made me feel a little special because we were only a few in France to know what an Oreo was...
Well things have changed and now you can find Oreos at any French Carrefour...

I love to dip mine in milk until they start to become soft, then I enjoy. Mmmmm I can go through about 15 in one sitting, haha.

A friend of mine gave me Oreos a few years back, when it was not available in France. Oh well, I guess you have to have grown up with them to really enjoy those.

Cheers,

If you ever come to the US and have a Jack-In-The-Box joint nearby, make sure you get an Oreo Milkshake!

You damn right! I haven't seen them in aaaages here in Scotland, but then again I haven't really been looking for them (I'm off chocolate for a little "willpower" test. Stop on January 24th...July 24th will be my six-months, when I'll be in Azerbaijan scoffing down Russia's answer to a Mars bar...a Mapc (Mars in Russian).)

I don't see what the fuss is about - Oreo's are OK, with milk, but they don't come anywhere close to a choccie digestive or (mmmmm!) Hobnobs. It's just no contest.

What does it taste like? Isn't it like normal chocolate shake just with crums?  Smile

I love Oreos, though they are quite expensive here so I rarely buy them. I did buy some in Iceland last year though (I was hungry, and you know where you are with oreos!).

I've also eaten Oreo cereal when I was in Florida 4 years ago - nice!

No Aloha, we had Choco BNs which are IMO far better than Oreos.

Bet that was about GBP10.00 for a packet ! Iceland is horrendously expensive.

I have had many an Oreo in the past, actually too many, so don't eat them anymore as are fat and sugar bombs as my Chlorestrol and weight numbers are too high. We can get them cheap here, saw them on sale the other day for about $US 2.50 for 1 Lb/450Gms packages. We also have reduced fat versions and something like 10 other versions too. All Oreos in the USA are being reformilated to remove heart deadly trans fats, but it may ruin their mouth feel, taste to conform to the health "police". Damm them!

They were suprisingly cheap - which is why I bought them. Cheap meaning about £3 per packet or something, though!

The best time for Oreos is in the waiting room right before your appointment with the dental hygenist with great big hooters.

OYRJA,
It's actually a vanilla shake with just the cookie crums in it. Enjoy!

Hmmmmm....

In Aruba the supermarkets mostly sell American products and Oreo's are not an exception. We have all the versions, including the reduced fat one, the one with peanut butter & chocolate cream, and the one with chocolate cream............ I like them all!

But this is by far my favorite!



We also get the imitation stuff from Venezuela etc., but nothing beats the real thing!!!!!

Nobody can imitate oreos. Any off-brand cookie that looks like one that I have ever eaten has tasted like utter crap.

If they want to do bootleg Oreos at least make it convincing!


This thread has made me wish that the US would drop care packets of Oreos all over Europe for the Oreo-deprived.  Sad
