Celebratory Banana Split Oreos!

Guess what? I'VE BEEN QUOTED! Yup, there's an article from JTI and a link to it on this website right here. Give me a moment to express my excitement...WAHOOOOOOOOOO!!! I'm making a bigger deal out of it than it really is, but whatever. I need all the self-assurance I can get. I feel sort of bad about it because it was the post where I talk about not liking "Wizards of Waverly Place." I also allude to Miley Cyrus being annoying. I posted a recall yesterday along with the Funky Hat Song. That should help my conscience a little.

To celebrate, I changed the background. I found this cool website,, and they have awesome backgrounds. I can't believe I never knew about it. I also put a dedication to Edward Cullen on the side, too. I love him. My friend thinks he's arrogant. I say he's a vampire and he's lived for over 100 years. That earns him some show-off privileges. Plus, he sparkles.

Also in celebration of my quoting, I am writing about a limited edition addition (hehe) to my favorite cookie team in the whole world. Oh, yeah. It's Oreos. After they came out with Fudgees (which I am planning to write about as soon as I get a new bag to photo), Nabisco became my one true love. Sorry Edward, you have Bella...hopefully.

Okay, so these Oreos are Banana Split. I really do love bananas, but for some reason, I think I like the concept of bananas more than the actual taste of them. Just looking at it, there's no doubt it'd be that fake banana candy flavor, like Banana Laffy Taffy. Regardless, it's a banana-flavored oreo. A BANANA-FLAVORED OREO. I have a weird attraction to bananas and oreos when they're separate. Put them together and the effect on me is diabolical.

The box is sooo pretty. Open it though and you're hit with a wave of semi-nauseating fake banana smell. Fake banana candy smell doesn't mix that well with the smell of Oreos. Who knew.

I liked the first cookie I ate. I think it was the novelty of eating a Banana Split Oreo that made me ignore everything else about it. I grabbed the second one and started having second thoughts. I figured it would be better if I just licked the cream out, but that wasn't so good, either. The consistency of the cream doesn't fit with the banana flavor. It just doesn't.

After eating that second cookie, I was totally over it. I had to close the box so I couldn't smell it anymore. The verdict:

Banana Split Oreos: Good in theory, hellish in actual execution. I've concluded that you can't banana-flavor an Oreo. Sigh. The attempt was admirable. At least now I can honestly say I've eaten an banana oreo. See? Silver lining.

If fake banana doesn't bother you, be my guest and try them. The novelty is worth a few bucks anyway (for me, at least). My dad actually likes them.

One last thing here. What's up with the "cremey?" That's not a word! I know they like to sound cool by saying "creme," but the adjective is "creamy!" You can't change the spelling of that. It's kind of cocky.

My gratitude goes out to my sister, the awesome photographer, for taking some decent oreo pictures for me. I tried to remember what they taught me in the "photography for non-photographers" class I took at newspaper camp, but I am so not meant to hold a camera. My sister also took the first picture of communist cow for me in the last post.

Oh, and thanks to Gwen Stefani for helping me spell banana. I have to sing that part of "Hollaback Girl" in my head every single time I try to spell the word. I keep wanting to put two N's in the middle. Gwen, you should write your own Hooked on Phonics.

I'm on a blogging kick, so more to come later when I think of something to write!


  1. You didn't tell me you had a blog!! You should have said something when I was telling you about mine lol.
    Banana (Gwen Stefani taught me how to spell that too!) split oreos sound disgusting. I'll stick with the regular ones thank you very much.
    Congrats on getting quoted! I'm still trying to get my blog out there. I just found out today from a friend that I can actually sell complete posts on my blog for $75!! Great way to make money!

  2. I am in love with Banana Split Oreos!!!!!

  3. They have to say "cremey" because it's prolly not real cream. I saw these, but chose the never-dissappointing mint filled oreos. Mmmm

  4. Oh, yeah, the mint-filled ones are good. I love Fudgees and Double Stuf. Those are my favorites, after original of course.

  5. Luvin those Banana split oreos too! But you forgot to say where you got them. I can't seem to find a box anywhere. Help!
