    Right now there are 5 kinds of oreos in our breakroom (plus one gluten free oreo knockoff) oreo pie, milk & chocolate milk, and the fixings to make oreo milkshakes after lunch.

    I think it's a good start.

    And now there are three kinds of decorated oreos (ladybugs, spiders, and red worms in a pile of "dirt") and an icebox cake.

    Where do you work? Are there any positions available? It sounds like you work with people who get it.

    I have a Limited Edition bag in the closet that will be broken open tonight. I am also hormonal, so the timing is perfect. I can't remember the name of the package I have, but it involved peanut butter and chocolate and that is really all I need to know. :tongue:

    How did I not know it was National Oreo Day????

    At home I have oreo thins and oreo thins bites and the new fudge covered oreos and various lower calorie cookies and cream ice creams but I don't think those count. :)

    Orrrrrrrrrrr I could break down and get the piece of oreo cheesecake I've been eyeing at the restaurant in my office building.

    I'll probably just break open the fudge covered oreos. :)

    So I actually did break open the fudge covered oreos and it pains me to say they were nothing special. Fudge covered nutter butter were soooooooo much better.

    A former coworker used to dip Oreos in chocolate herself at Christmas time - they were amazing! She's sprinkle them with some chopped candy canes too. Nom nom nom.

    *makes sign of the cross* Noooooo keep that icky mint away from me! I once tried a thin mint because I was *that* desperate for chocolate but that was a big mistake.

    I also found the fudge covered Oreos disappointing. As much as I love a plain old nekkid Oreo, and considering the crazy calories, I guess I expected them to be spectacular, and they weren't.

    I have had home-dipped chocolate covered Oreos and they were quite good, but honestly I would rather have a couple of Oreos when I'm in a cookie mood, and a bit of chocolate when I'm in a chocolate mood. Or just make the Oreo balls upthread which were outstanding :tongue:

    I wasn't planning to have oreos today, but now I have to, lol. I had no clue oreos had a day. I am surprised oreo doesn't have a bunch of giveaways and marketing for it.

    I will be having my favorite carrot cake ones tonight!

    Yeeeeah, I was checking out the Pi thread and then needed pie. I cheated and bought the generic hostess type pie (my market didn't have single slices) but then found out Pi had something to do with being round(?) so that was a me not being geeky enough fail.

    I still ate the pie. :)
