But a Swedish Fish Oreo is simply far too much to handle.
Yup, Nabisco confirmed this week that Swedish Fish Oreos are indeed its latest limited-edition flavor, sold only in Kroger grocery stores. Those who have gotten their hands on the flavor confirm they look as wild as they sound:
If you’re fishing around for a snack, then this probably isn’t the best choice.
The new Oreo has a “potent” flavor with a “slightly off-putting finish of waxy gelatin,” said one taster on The Impulsive Buy.
“I couldn’t get the cough syrup taste out of my mouth,” said another from Thrillist.
Maybe it’s a good thing these Oreos have limited availability: They’ll be sold only in Kroger stores for a limited time. Of course if you’re feeling adventurous, you can always buy them on the black ― er, is that red? ― market online.
We’ll stick to our homemade chocolate oat cookies for now, thank you.
