2012 Halloween Oreo's Resurrected!

It has turned into a bit of a tradition that at the start of every Halloween Countdown I make note of the fact that Halloween Oreo's have once again returned to our dimension from wherever they hide when it is not September or October.

This year Nabisco has unleashed Halloween Oreo's in a new redesigned package, one that screams Halloween in the best way possible.

The thing about Halloween Oreo's is that, generally speaking, they are among the first seasonal items to hit store shelves. They are the first big release to come out and tell us that it is indeed alright to start worshiping The Great Pumpkin again.

Honestly is there a better way to start celebrating Halloween than with orange filled Oreo cookies? I cannot think of one and if there is, I am not sure I want to hear about it.

You see those shapes imprinted on the top of each cookies, they may or may not very from year to year. For 2012 we have ghosts, witches, cats, and other shapes that I could not be bothered with. Imprinted cookie shapes are nice and all but let's be honest here folks, these Oreo's are all about the orange filling. Everything else is secondary to the mighty orange mofo'in frosting.

Here is a toothpick monster that I made out of the candy that I had sitting around on my Halloween Mood Table, I've named him Mezzanie because that seems like a logical name for him.

Mezzanie has found a new home on my Halloween Mood Table, as a matter of fact I have promoted him to the tables Chief Operating Officer of Spooky Relations. I don't know what that title means but Mezzanie sure is proud to be one.

In conclusion: Halloween Oreo's are totally a thing you should buy. No matter what the outdoor thermometer says (and mine is reading 96) September = Halloween and Halloween Oreo's = Love

  1. Where did you find them?! I usually have the best luck at Target, but haven't been in a few weeks. Halloween Oreos are *THE* best! I don't care what anyone else says, they taste better than any other Oreo... Christmas in 2nd.

    1. I found these at the local 'Dollar General' ... though I seen that K-Mart had some for sale today as well. I would try checking your local grocery stores first.

      I agree, something about Halloween Oreo's just makes them taste better! I think it is the orange frosting =)

    1. I was at both Target and Wal-Mart today. Target did not have any of these cookies but Wal-Mart had a big display set up for both Halloween Oreo's and Halloween Chips Ahoy.

      I have not had any luck finding the new Oreo 'Candy Corn' cookies, though. If you find them be sure to let me know! Those things are like the mythical unicorn of seasonal candy items, I'm still not 100% convinced they actually exist until I spot a package out in the wild. =)

  3. I hope they don't literally take them off the shelves the SECOND it's not Halloween anymore like last year. They don't just look better, they taste better! Probably just psychological but they are vastly superior to conventionally syled Oreos! VASTLY!
