Friday, June 2, was National Doughnut Day in the States, the day we celebrate fried sweet dough, torus-shaped and otherwise. Nabisco celebrated this joyous holiday by reminding us that there’s nothing quite like a warm jelly doughnut, especially not a creme-filled sandwich cookie.
In the hierarchy of things you don’t put in your mouth, fireworks are right up there with razor blades and hobos, but nothing will stand in the way of Nabisco’s relentless quest to keep Snacktaku from eating things that aren’t Oreos.
We here at Snacktaku have given the Oreo a great deal of attention over the years, but several years before the popular cookie’s 1912 debut there was another. Hydrox, the original sandwich cookie, takes on Nabisco’s usurper in the first-ever Snacktaku Showdown.
Now thats it’s finished tasting game cartridges, Snactaku moves on to something slightly more edible. We were unsure about the Easter-themed combination of Marshmallow Peeps and Oreo cookies, but now we are completely certain our entire digestive tract is currently bright pink.
After spending 2016 eating strange and horrible things, Snacktaku is kicking off the year on a high note. Let January 20, 2017 be forever known as the day Snacktaku ate Chocolate Strawberry Oreos, one of the best limited edition flavors in ages.
Snackology is often referred to by completely real people as the loneliest of the sciences, but it doesn’t have to be. Join me and a host of Kotaku guest stars in our poorly-lit home office as we eat one of the best non-cookie Oreo products yet.
The look of terror in my eyes is half the idea of Oreo cookies filled with Swedish Fish “flavor creme,” half the outrageous pressure put on me to eat them from the moment they became a real thing. I have done your bidding. Please release my family. The good ones, at least.
Roses are red, violets are blue. Both are technically edible. Blueberry Pie Oreos are a sort of a pale violet that looks nothing like something that should make its way to your stomach.
Only the dedicated food scientists at Nabisco could create a chocolate and cream cookie that tastes slightly different from another chocolate and cream cookie. Or maybe a cupcake? It’s hard to say.
When you’re a massive international snack company, there’s no better way to celebrate the holidays than pumping your signature cookie filling with red food coloring and peppermint oil. Let’s eat some of that.
Here at Snacktaku we don’t usually condone playing with your food, but Nabisco’s new Oreo Thins make it too easy.
Remember when you’d go camping as a kid and sit around a campfire roasting marshmallows for s’mores? I don’t, which is why I used a cigarette lighter on a S’mores Oreo instead.
How many Oreo cookies have to die before this man’s thirst for tricksy rebounds is sated?
Really? There are Pumpkin Spice Oreos now? Fine. Let's get this over with.
Is there any greater event in the snacking world than the introduction of a new limited edition flavor of Oreo cookie? How about two new flavors? I have tasted Marshmallow Crispy and Cookie Dough Oreos, and my findings may surprise you.
There are many problems with Oreo's next-generation game controller concept, but taste isn't one. Getting in on the console launch fun via Twitter, Oreo has created a controller with two 'O' buttons, a ridiculous d-pad, uncomfortable thumb sticks and a gem in the middle that's begging to have the head of a penis drawn…
I'm perfectly capable of making myself sick without your help, Nabisco.
The rise of mobile phone games has done wonders for the normally dark and seedy world of advergaming. With Oreo Twist, Lick, Dunk, PikPok has created an interactive advertisement I've actually wanted to play more than once.
For the children and children-at-heart that don fancy costumes for a night of fun and frolicking, Halloween is October 31. For the certified snack professional, the spooky festivities begin in September, when Cadbury, Mars, Hershey and Nabisco roll out their holiday-themed candy. Hold out your bags, boys and girls.
Oreo. In the snacking world there are few words more powerful than that glorious combination of three vowels and a consonant. Since 1912 Nabisco has dominated the cookie market with this marriage of chocolate and cream, the unassailable king of its domain.
