5 Ways People Have Adulterated the Innocent Oreo

Yes, these actually exist

The biggest Oreo-related dilemma used to be deciding whether to twist the two layers apart before popping them into your mouth or (savagely) biting into it whole. Now, there are more flavor variations than cliffhangers in Lost (ahem, Swedish Fish Oreo), and McDonald's Hong Kong has even devoted an entire menu to the classic sandwich cookie.

Here are just five of the spin-offs overcomplicating what was once simply known as "milk's favorite cookie."

① Oreo Beer

To us, "hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies" sounds like the ideal Friday night, not like a beer. But The Veil Brewing Co. in Richmond, Virginia, recently released a chocolate milk stout that transforms the classic childhood snack into an adult vice—which, naturally, sold out immediately.


This Tuesday January 24th will be the debut of Hornswoggler with Oreos! � That's right. You heard right. We took our 7% robust chocolate milk stout Hornswoggler and conditioned it on hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies. If you like Oreo cookies, this is a must try. *THERE MAY BE SOME RESIDUAL FERMENTABLE SUGARS FROM THE COOKIES IN THE BEER. WE HIGHLY SUGGEST KEEPING THESE CANS AS COLD AS POSSIBLE AT ALL TIMES. WE ALSO SUGGEST CONSUMING THIS BEER AS FRESH AS POSSIBLE FOR THE MOST INTENSE OREO CHARACTER POSSIBLE.* Shooting for approx 55-80 cases. $17+tax/4-pack. 1x 4-pack per person. *CASES PACKAGED AND LIMITS SUBJECT TO CHANGE* We will also be hiding 5x Golden Tokens(seen in front of the can) underneath the 4-pack holders(only on Hornswoggler cans). Find one of these coins and give it to a staff member behind the bar to get a free Golden Hornswoggler glass(as seen in the picture in this post; the Hornswoggler himself is on the back side of the glass)! This is the ONLY way to get your hands on this glass. We will never sell this glass. It is only acquired if you are the lucky few to find a Golden Token. We hope you guys can make it for Tuesday January 24th's can release. Doors open at 4pm! ��

② Oreo Cereal

Now available only in South Korea, Oreo O's survived stateside for 10 years. The nutritional difference between a bowl of these and a couple full-sized cookies is negligible, though, so you might as well save this crunchy breakfast food for dessert.

③ Oreo Churros

Made from chocolate cake and served with crème-like dip, this calorie-rich carnival food has been around for several years, and a similar frozen version hit grocery stores in November 2015. It's still unclear which version is more unnecessary.

④ Bacon-Wrapped Oreos

Let these be proof that not all things taste better wrapped in bacon. We realize the bacon craze is here to stay, but can we all just agree to leave Oreos out of it?

⑤ Oreo Cadbury Creme Eggs

OK, we'll admit that these are probably excellent. But they still beg the question: Is nothing sacred anymore?
