This is the apocalypse, no one messes with the shape of Oreos - EVER.

Not enough sugar.

My high school gal friend has her two sisters living with her for free. They have a fridge in the garage just for Hostess Twinkies. And they both are morbidly obese, EVEN BY US standards.
I thought Twinkies were doing the way of the dodo too???

They will never give up the iconic round Oreo. It's too classic. I do like the thins even though you get less product for the same price vs. the original. I bet that will also be the case with the Joy version.

I don't love them NOW. Changing their shape won't change the fact that they taste like Crisco and sugar squished between "cookies" that taste like old tires.

They look like dog treats gone rogue.

I don't like Oreos, too sweet. But they produce a lot of varieties while keeping the original, so I'd guess that will happen with this.

The new Oreos going to be a little log, as if someone cut the trunk off a bonzai tree and named Joy Fills.
Oreo Joy Fills might even make a wonderful cereal themselves — a sugar-filled nightmare for mothers everywhere

That's across the pond - there's no word yet on whether the little pockets of joy will make it to the US and when.
Would you still love Oreos if they were not in the form of their signature sandwich?

I think that they should leave it alone.
That said, it has been forever since I last had an Oreo.
(Oh wait, I sort of had them about 2 or 3 years back, my son bakes a lot for Christmas, and made Oreo
truffles....they were really great!)

I loved them when I was a child though.(My parents wouldn't let me have them very often,
they didn't believe in things with lots of sugar, but when I had sleep overs or visited my friends
I quite enjoyed them!)


Nowadays, if I am going to consume an Ungodly amount of Sugar and Calories, I save it for Ice Cream or Cheesecake!)

We got ahold of some Hydrox 2 years ago and agreed they were better, less sugary, more chocolaty. I don't care for Oreos and won't go out of my way for Hydrox either. I prefer Oatmeal Raisin cookies
