I Refuse to Apologize For This.

On what has become a borderline obsession, I have been questing for the alleged Birthday Cake Oreos for the past week or two, once I learned that they were A Thing That Supposedly Existed. I use terms like "alleged" and "supposedly" because THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THEY DO.

Except for this. Photographic "proof" from the Googles.

NONE of my stores have them. Ironically, Wal-Mart has the most extensive selection of Oreos I've ever seen, and they didn't have them. (They also have the best selection of Ben & Jerry's around. That's the only place I could find the elusive Pumpkin Cheesecake flavor.)

Did you know they have a "Triple Double" version of the Oreo? It looks a little something like this.

 Amazing, right?

They also have a Neapolitan version with the blonde Oreo, that has strawberry + chocolate.


This is, of course, in addition to the glorious Mint Oreos that I've used at least once so far in my March Mintness (get it? Like March Madness? Oh, never mind. Hey, by the way, my alma mater made it to the NCAA tournament because we're playing some solid BB this year. GO CYCLONES!). And then the pink-creme-filled Berry Burst Oreos that were also unexpectedly delicious that I stared at for about three minutes in the cookie aisle before my curiosity totally won out.

Anyway, back to the original topic at hand... I utilized my mad Google skillz (with a Z, so you know it's legit) and the only option that presented itself was to order online. I have some qualms about paying $18 for a package of Oreos (seriously, Amazon, wtf)... but... OH, MY CURIOSITY.

Dare I?

I dared.

I bought them here instead, and I am filled with great shame that I just dropped $14 on a package of Oreos (TEN DOLLAR SHIPPING WTF), but...

Don't judge me.

When I was back home I saw some at Walgreens. Maybe they just pulled them from the shelf super quick

So strange how these things work because they are ALL OVER my grocery stores. I saw them like 4 times before I finally broke down and bought them.

They weren't as delicious as I had anticipated, but I still ate them all haha.

Next time skip the $10 shipping and I will mail them to you!

I tried them and am the only one that doesn't like them. They are way to saccharine for me, bleck! =P I hope you like them since you spent a bundle on them.

Canadian grocery stores need to step up their game. We have nothing.

Crazy, I actually found them at our Target of all places. I thought they were pretty great. Didn't blow my mind. Although none of my friends liked them so I ended up eating the whole package in about 24 hours...so there's that.
