Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreo's!

Diabetes.

I can think of no better word to sum up what we are looking at right now than diabetes.

I've no idea what mad scientist concocted the formula that finally brought together Oreo Cookies and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups but I am fully convinced that this is the final straw that pushes our society towards the breaking point and gives everyone in America full fledged diabetes.

And I mean all of this in the best possibly way.

Because holy crap guys, it is Oreo Cookies flavored like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Two of the most delightfully devilish things on the face of the planet, combined like Voltron into a snake food capable of ending World Wars.

I've swore off writing about Oreo's prior to finding these bad boys. Having felt that Nabisco had went to the proverbial 'well of bizarre flavors' far to many times and in to subsequent of a fashion.

Fruit Punch Oreo's are pretty awesome but the impact is lessened when they are surrounded by ones that taste like watermelon and ice cream or anniversary editions combined with birthday cakes, and about eighteen other "limited" variates.

This, however, is exactly what Nabisco needed to get me interested in writing about cookies again. Two big time heavyweight juggernauts coming together to make magical snack-time sex all over your kitchen counter.

My only regret is that Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreo's didn't come out in October and in a big old orange and black package. That would have been enough to stop my heart and call the season over in one big artificial peanutbutter flavored swoop.

This could have won the entire Halloween Season, had they just been given a chance. Instead we get them in the middle of summers warm grasp.

Not that the release date diminishes just how friggin' cool they are. But I still cannot help but to wonder 'what if' they had been released in October?

On the positive side, writing so many times about Oreo Cookies I have developed my own personal degree in Oreo Cookie Photography. I'd like to think at this point I can capture the very essense of what these cookies represent.

Clearly. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreo's are best enjoyed with the lights off, a thunderstorm building off in the distance, and a muddy old VHS copy of "Friday the 13th" playing in the background.

The best part about these cookies is that they 100% deliver on the notion of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups fused with Oreo Cookies. Without question. That is what they are.

And they are good.

Scary good, in fact. Like most of the other limited edition Oreo's, Nabisco has nailed the scent down to a near perfect aroma. As soon as you break open the seal you'll get smacked in the face with the undeniable smell of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

And they taste exactly how you would expect them to. Like some crazy, wild eyed scientist scooped out the inside of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and jammed it between two Oreo Cookies.

So I guess to wrap this up I'd suggest that everyone goes out and buys these right now. Enjoy a package during the summer months but to truly get the most out of Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreo Cookies, I'd say to stick some in the freezer and when the fall season finally arrives... enjoy a batch while you wait for The Great Pumpkin to rise up from the ground.

Is it October yet?
