    Why the obsession with Oreos everywhere?

    They just taste like borboun creams to me but 4x the price.



    They seem to be a "in" thing tho shoved in with ice cream, in chocolate bars and stuff and kids go mad for em.

    You said it "in thing". When I first bought my house in Florida the 1990s I remember family coming over saying these taste like bad chocolate biscuits and its true. Now as you say, people really buy them.

    In the Uk we have so many great snacks its bizarre that people will buy things like Oreos, they are often sale though.

    Like Hershey' chocolate, which lacks cocoa butter and milk/cream, they are a very middling recipe from a country that lacked access and knowledge to things.

    They really do not taste like chocolate, they are very much like cocoa powder derived products, the sort of things you might have got "local" to you if you lived in Africa in the past, they do not melt etc.

    I work in Asda and my god have we sold a lot of them thin oeros, I keep saying to people it works out cheaper getting the normal ones, but I get the same reply time and time again, "I want the thins so I can tell people I've tried them!", like anybody cares lol

    they're on sale all the time because no one likes them ... yak ...

    prefers Fox's crunch creams to these bourbon wannabes

    If you think they taste like bourbons your tastebuds are shot fam

    My 5 year old boy has just started eating them because hes been watching youtube Americans. I'm not complaining though as it means he also will drink a large glass of milk with a biscuit.

    Just a campaign to get everyone eating a healthy diet oO

    Oreo's turn my wee boy into a raging monster for 2/3 days, he's such a placid wee lad the rest of the time, we made the mistake twice, never again! A hershey chocolate bar had the same effect

    no a fan of the ordinary Oreos no taste to them, but if you get a chance try the strawberry flavor Oreos. pleasantly surprised lol

    When I first tried them I quite liked them but they have come out in everything and now I hate them they taste cheap and so dose the creamy centre bourbons are much nicer even the cheap ones.

    i have only tried them once& I didn't like the taste at all. thought to myself something must be wrong with me for not loving them!!Glad there are other people with similier taste buds as mine.

    Tried them ages ago, they taste not good, however its popularity is due to digital marketing and people and companies paid to use/show it.

    Thats mad i picked up a packet of them in morrisons looked at the wieght and the price and thought yeah right and put em back, people do like to waste money.

    I prefer oreos to bourbons, but I only buy them on occasion when 50p. They are only biscuits at the end of the day, am definitely surprised they seem to be in everything (cakes, milkshakes, ice cream)...

    The other product I used to see in everything is reggae reggae sauce, though admittedly not in dairy based products.

    absolutely disgusting things - no idea why they sell so well

    I got some for my boy as he keeps asking and they were on offer again for 50p, i tried some this morning with tea, i tested them dunked this time vs the borboun creams and the BCs still win, more taste, more sweet (at least the ones i have at the moment are sweeter but then as BCs go i think they are very sweet for BCs and prefer ones from another store. Still 10p less and twice the amount in the pack then the oreos tho.

    I like Bourbon Creams too Error, Foxes make the nicest ones, Oreos are too crunchy, but I dont mind the double chocolate ones.

    But they seem to be in all the fast food places, McFlurries or Oreo Shakes etc..

    I do remember watching BIG with Tom Hanks and wanting Oreos..

    Burbon flavour bourbons

    The reason I'm guessing Oreo is in everything is Cadburys pushing its influence on McDonald's and so on since craft bought Cadburys and craft own Oreos too it makes sense to put the two together more American cheap junkfood push though Cadburys

    I quite like my idea of mini bourbons I might write to them about that.

    Maybe and I think they toyed with the idea of philadelphia cheese chocolate spread haha oO

    A lot American junk food wouldn't make it in the uk, EU laws are very strict compared to America on E. Numbers and additives I'm guessing a trade deal with America eventually might change this it was one of the big reasons I campaigned about TTIP cheap additives In American food makes it taste crap. I would however like to try some of the Pringles flavours you see in America some of those do look nice. There is an American sweets site on the Internet that sells the Pringles in the uk but they over £4 a tube with out P&P costs not included.

    Its the added sugar to the "milk" versions, they even add it to there "dark" as well! I believe there are now some sugar free versions.

    If you smell Hersheys it smells like sick b/c it contains polyglycerol polyricinoleate instead of using cocoa butter!

    Its truly a chemical/sysnthetic solution when price and transport costs made using ordinary chocolate ingredients hard.

    Ever seen in the US the wide use of "corn syrup" in lieu of gelatine. Which is why they all go nuts of UK "sweet liquorice"/bootlaces etc. (Twizzlers are flavourless!) and those other gummy sweets we have.

    A revelation to Americans would be a variety of flavoured crisp! Salt (regular), BBQ and cheese is about all most stores carry! Pringles went on a stretch with a few new flavours. IME I would say they are quirky and worth a try but really lack the depth of flavour that you might get with the brands over here, Walkers Sensations et al.

    Typical American,sweet,Yucky tasting horrible things

    It's like twinkies. Their like those old classic Swiss rolls that safe ways used to sell.
    But they've added a nasty syrup coating.

    Over priced, over hyped tat.

    Just bought some oreo thins when out doing my shopping, didn't actually want them but was drawn to them after reading this thread earlier and thought I'd better try them so I could tell every one

    According to research the old theory of "its the sugar" isnt true, Its been proven to be E's and other additives but not sugar.

    All biscuits are rank. Oreos look especially rank.

    I'm gonna wade in and just say Rich Teas are the best biscuits.

    No nonsense. Nuff said.

    Don't get it, taste meh.

    I really should focus more on filling the shelves lol, but just hate seeing people not get a better deal. I remember when we used to have the buy one get one free deals and I seen people picking just one up, I'd say you get another for free and they'd be like "I only want one though" lol
