Overheard in the Office

posted by on August 1 at 16:30 PM

The sound of one of these with one bite out of it hitting the inside of the garbage can, as rejected by Dan Savage.


They are disturbingly puffy.

I love oreos, but seriously, this would make me barf.

Thoes would make anyones thighs disturbingly fluffy.

I bet they're better if you deep fry 'em.

i'm having a tough time envisioning the texture of those things.

Posted by douglas | August 1, 2008 4:41 PM

Can't I just buy the filling in a can?

Posted by elswinger | August 1, 2008 4:41 PM

The answer is to put them in the freezer overnight, then they are yummy

more disturbingly puffy than an 8 year old's nipples.

@3 for the disturbing win - @7 for the more disturbing non-winner.

Dip them in chocolate and they're moon pies.

Those are gross. I got them out of the snack machine at work. I can taste the chemicals in them with each nasty bite.

My daughter, reading over my shoulder, said, "those are awful, they taste like sweat."

Are you kidding?! The fluffy fluffy is the easiest way to eat your feelings. HATERS

of course, dan is a cake enthusiast--these would be an insult to his trained palate.

it's like Little Debbie and Mr. Nabisco mated and this was the outcome.

Posted by Tasty | August 2, 2008 12:01 AM

Well. I've never had a gift more publicly rejected. At least I only paid $ 0.20 for it. Nipper loves them. So there.

You should buy him a box that he should keep wherever he keeps his roach clip. The next time Dan and Terry curl up in bed for a joint and an evening in, he can break out the box and give them another shot.

I can assure you, they are one of man's great inventions when you're stoned, just like those deep fried Taco's from Jack in the Box.

Things that are only good to indulge in while stoned - I could create an entire list.

The Double-Stuff Oreo is perfection. Why mess with perfection?

Posted by six shooter | August 2, 2008 8:11 AM

Yeah, I've tried these, and they are pretty perfectly disgusting. They've got all the sugary sweetness, but the attempt at adding the chocolate flavor led to a disgusting blandness, and the cream was again essentially just a mushy, gooey mix of gelatin and sugar.

Posted by Gitai | August 2, 2008 9:32 AM

Yah, even my children didn't like these things!

Posted by Fark | August 2, 2008 11:47 AM

the obvious progression is to now devote an entire thread to stoner food, aka "disgusting food that becomes unexplainably compelling and delicious when altered"-
i nominate crumbled nilla wafers mixed with fried rice. and i am serious.

Posted by pretentious | August 2, 2008 11:55 AM

@10 and 18: that's because they ARE full of nasty chemicals--the worst of which is titanium dioxide. Y'know, the stuff that makes the white in sunblock and paint. mmm-mmm-good.

I have never agreed more with anything posted on Slog.


Posted by brent | August 2, 2008 1:00 PM

At first glance, I thought they were called "Oreo Casketers." Hmm. "Cakesters" isn't an appealing name, either.

Posted by Athena | August 3, 2008 11:52 PM

They are probably the most putrid thing I hae every tried. TOO DAMN SWEET!!!
