So I have this reputation on liking sweets.
Many of my readers know this.
People who know me in real life know this.
Heck, people who I’ve just met figure it out early on.
So it wasn’t a surprise when I had five people telling me about these new Oreos that were coming out. Candy Corn Oreos. My interest was immediately peaked. I had to find the Oreos and try them.
I’m a big fan of trying new junk foods.
Like the Pumpkie Pie Pop Tarts. Mmmmmm….
Anyway, when I went to the commissary I checked to see if they had the Candy Corn Oreos. They didn’t. I came on Facebook and whined about it. Someone said, “I think they’re exclusive to Target.”
Seeing as I’m at Target every week, I decided to look the next time I was there.
I still couldn’t find the cookies. Where were they?
I startled a worker who was putting out Halloween stuff.
“Are you going to get the Candy Corn Oreos?” I asked sweetly.
He blinked at me.
“Target is getting these Candy Corn Oreos and I must try them,” I said fervently.
His mouth fell open slightly. Did this not compute?
“Ugh,” he finally said as he set out some monster shaped fruit snacks. “I haven’t seen any of those. They sound gross.”
Well, in the words of Stephanie Tanner, how rude.
Yesterday someone posted on one of the coupon groups I’m apart of that Target had marked their backpacks 70% off. Yes, finally! I always get backpacks 70% off for the following year because who wants to pay full price for one? Not me. I figured it would give me another chance to find the cookies.
Back to Target I went.
(I have been three times this week. I have problems. It’s not my fault that they mark things 70% off on DIFFERENT days.)
I found some 70% off backpacks for next year.
Then I wandered the Halloween section hoping to find the Oreos.
I was getting annoyed. I had seen some Facebook friends post pictures of the Oreos that they had found in THEIR Targets. What was wrong with mine?
I headed for the checkout, deflated. No Oreos for me. Ahh well.
Then I spotted a woman chatting with a friend. And what did she have in her hands?
THE CANDY CORN OREOS!
I tried not to scare her when I rushed over. “Excuse me!” I gasped out.
She stared at me with wide eyes. Maybe she thought I was a robber. Only that would be weird, trying to steal right near the checkout. Plus, we weren’t at WalMart.
“Where did you find those cookies?” I asked.
“In the back on an endcap near the freezer section,” she replied, and then her friend giggled.
“Everyone is looking for those cookies!” she trilled.
Really? So I wasn’t the only one?
I hurried into the back area in case everyone was buying all the cookies. What if they were gone?
I made it to the endcap near the freezer and…
…yup! There they were! Why they weren’t by the Halloween stuff is beyond me.
I grabbed a package and stuck it in my cart. Then when I got in line I saw another display for them up front. D’oh! Oh well, I got my cardio in for the day.
So, what do they taste like?
Not candy corn.
BUT. They taste like cake.
And you can’t go wrong with cake.
(Natalie is also a fan. She licked off the cream and was like, “Mmmmmm!” She takes after her Mom.They freaked Tommy out. It was the cream colors, I think. He wouldn’t even try it. He’d be friends with that male Target worker I encountered.)
