Oreo simply does not give a flying fuzz whether or not a new flavor of theirs sounds disgusting — they're going to go ahead with it anyway, and still spend money on making it available!
Last year it was the Candy Corn Oreo that had everyone dry heaving after just thinking about it, and now it's the bizarre WATERMELON flavor that has everyone reaching for a trash can instead of their wallets… even though the reviews coming in have been mostly positive!
What the what!!
Here's one review:
I am, frankly, SHOCKED. These were good, REALLY good. They didn’t have the overbearing sweetness that the Candy Corn Oreos or the Blizzard Oreos or even the Birthday Cake Oreos had. No, these were subtle in flavor, with just enough watermelon to make me smile.
Do we trust this reviewer, or do we trust our gut in thinking this will probably taste like fruity toothpaste sandwiched between cookies??
Honestly, until we get to try them (we're not so sure we're willing to spend the money to do so), we'll just go with how it sounds: Ewwwwwwwww!!
