Saturday is National Oreo Day! (If it wasn’t on a Saturday already, I would say that means for a day off of work).
We can’t go wrong with a classic and after last week’s crazy recipe, something simple sounds good.
Although they are seemingly a harmless cookie, Oreos carry many factors of debate.
– What is the correct method of eating an Oreo?
I’m a proud dunker when it comes to cookies so I eat my Oreos dunked in milk and ready to go. No twisting or eating one half or just the cream first. All in, baby.
– Are they better than Chocolate Chip Cookies?
Definitely not. Nothing beats the CCC. How many people do you know leaves Oreos out for Santa? (I bet zero).
– Double stuffed or classic?
Double stuffed aaallllllll the way. Probably the best thing to ever happen to the Oreo.
– Favorite random Oreo flavor?
HEAR ME OUT ON THIS ONE but the best random flavor I’ve tried of Oreo that BLEW MY MIND – Lemon.
I know, I know. It’s not a flavor I would go and buy on my own and think “Oh wow, these will definitely taste great”. No.
This is one of those flavors someone else has already somehow vetted and then lets you try one.
I’m here to be that person for you. Go get the Lemon Oreos. Thank me later.
This Cookies & Cream Ice Cream comes together super quickly! We use the cream filling in our base to give it that real Oreo flavor and then load up on the crushed Oreos! The perfect way to celebrate National Oreo Day!
