Try it Tuesday....Oreo Snack Cakes 100 Calorie Packs

These 100 calorie Oreo Snack Cakes are supposed to be the lighter version of Oreo Cakesters. I like the texture. They are soft. No frosting in the middle tho. Just lines of frosting on top of them. There are cakes in each 100 calorie package and 5 packages to a box. I paid $3.99 at Meijer.

So why am I always disappointed with anything that says Oreo on it??! These are more like yucksters than cakesters. Is it because they are low calorie? Does that have to mean low taste too? I've tried Oreo cereal and it's terrible. Oreo pudding is ok, but really doesn't taste too much like Oreo. The 100 calorie Oreo thin crisps are good, but they taste nothing like an Oreo. They only thing that tastes like an Oreo cookie, is an actual Oreo cookie. When will they ever get it right? Come on Nabisco!

I have yet to try the Oreo 100 Calorie chewy granola bars, so maybe I'll give it one more chance. I guess the reason for my big disappointment, is that I really like Oreos and so I expect any product with the Oreo name on it, to taste like an Oreo. Is that asking too much?

Speaking of Oreos....a little humor here. I have to admit, I sometimes used to watch the Roseanne show. I mostly liked to watch them because of Jackie. I think Laurie Metcalf was the best comedic actress ever on a sitcom (next to Lisa Kudrow as Phoebe on Friends). Jackie was much funnier than Roseanne. Anyway, the episode, "Let Them Eat Junk" has my favorite Jackie moment. AND it's all about Oreos! This YouTube is 7 minutes long, but the Oreo part ends at 2 minutes. Watch Jackie throw a fit over Roseanne feeding Jackie's son Andy Oreos while she babysits. Warning: there are a few swear/crude words, but it's hilarious that Jackie calls the family a bunch of Oreo eaters with Roseanne being the Oree-ohiest of them all. Quit watching after 2 minutes because the rest isn't as funny and is a bit more crude.
PS...you will have to pause or turn off the music at the bottom of my blog before watching the YouTube.

I am with you on the Oreos. I haven't tried these products yet, but I have tried those thin crisp Oreos. What a joke. It is the filling that makes them and I am sticking to that. No filling, no good. If you are feeling awfully naughty there is a recipe on Kraft.com for Oreo truffles. It is just cream cheese and oreos I think but they are awesome. Make them for some potluck so you can have a few and get rid of the rest.

I have to totally agree with you there! Anything that is so wonderful like Oreos or Reeses in any other form is a disappointment :(
