Our Thursday night agility class has involved trying a ton of the new Oreo flavors btw, but I haven't had the firecracker ones yet (I'm looking forward to it, because I really like a similar type of chocolate bar). The choco/PB ones are really good, vying for first place alongside the ones that are chocolate/strawberry. Not crazy about the lemon, although those can be shared with the dogs.

My favorite Oreos are the Reverse ones, with the Golden cookies and chocolate creme, but they don't make them anymore. The Lemon ones are good, and the rest are ok. I try not to buy a package of Oreos, tho, because then I eat a whole package of Oreos.

I would think too many Oreos would really cut down on one's agility.

I'm very fond of the ginger Newman-Os myself. I don't think I've ever seen the peanut butter ones.

Other notes:
-regular Oreos are good, although yes, the cookie is actually slightly better than the icing.
-Double Stuf: what, the regular amount of pure sugar wasn't enough for you?
-Mint oreos, those are what's best in life!
-peanut butter: not bad, although personally I think the cookie and peanut butter flavors aren't the best match.
-Anybody remember the fudge-covered Oreos? Those were so much gluttony and regret in one small package...

I don't understand why anyone would buy regular Oreos in a world in which Double Stuff Oreos exist. Like, what's the point?

Also peanut butter is gross, and peanut butter with Oreos sounds disgusting.

There is iron in your word of life.

I will say this without expecting anyone to agree with me, or even keep their dinner down - if one has to eat not-doublestuff oreos, instead of dunking them in milk, try dunking them in bourbon.

I had my lowest blood sugar ever on Easter (35 when it's supposed to be 70-180) and, in my state of heart-racing ravenous carb hunger, inhaled an entire pack of Peeps Oreos in about three minutes. It was fucking glorious.

'Surprisingly not bad' isn't really a recommendation, or it's the most tepid one ever. I can't decide right now.

Has anyone mentioned the Oreos Thins yet? I usually don't like snack foods that they've attempted to diet-ify by making them smaller or thinner, but in the case of Oreo Thins it actually works pretty well.

Got one of those electric zapper tennis racquets of death for a little fly problem we were having. Never has murder been so much fun. Totally the market.

As bonus entertainment the instructions have the usual "just run it through google translate" feel. "Let sparse side net face to the fly, and plumb the net to plane, when approach the fly about 20-30cm presses the button, brandish the swatter quickly, continue shock for 2-3 seconds." Plumb the net to plane? Are we killing bugs or doing carpentry?

And a bonus to the bonus is the notice at the bottom which reads "If can't arrest flies please kindly read the guide carefully and improve the skill", in other words if it doesn't work it's not the product's fault, it's because you suck and haven't practiced.

That's great. I wish I could find the badly translated instructions I used to have for using a sphygmomanometer manufactured in China.

Hands up everyone who knows what a "sphygmomanometer" is without googling it. (I do, because I have to use one regularly.)
