Pumpkin Spice Oreos!

Halloween Oreos!

I meant to cover these during the 2014 Halloween Countdown but it never happened... so for the sake of argument these are now Thanksgiving items and not Halloween.

People put pumpkins out for Thanksgiving, right? I vaguely remember doing so in elementary school. And besides if you look hard enough  Pumpkin Spice Oreos are still available, despite most stores best effort to convert the masses into a faux since of Christmas Spirit via Pre-Black Friday sales.

Stupid new flavors of Oreo Cookies are nothing new. This trend has been going on for a few years now and while I love the fact that Nabisco marches to the beat of its own drum, I'm still not convinced we need eighteen trillion different flavors of Oreo Cookies at any specific point in time.

Someplace inbetween the Candy Corn Oreos from a few years back and the inevitable future release of Taxicab Air Freshener Oreo Cookies lies Pumpkin Spice. It's the cookie that nobody specifically asked for and... is about as bad as you think.

Nabisco has legitimately released some strange shit over the years and I've never quite been able to tell if these offshoot flavors are meant to be serious... or if they are all a tongue-in-cheeck joke like those Jones Soda Holiday Packs of old.

Pumpkin Spice Oreo's smell like a Glade scented candle. Have you ever wanted to eat a candle? Well if you have then I suggest you stop reading and immediately go to the store and purchase a bag, because this is the closest you are likely to get to an eatable version of that.

The actual taste is more cinnamon than pumpkin... but its just so hard to get over how friggin' weird this is. Why do we need cinnamon fused, vaguely pumpkin flavored Oreo Cookies? We don't. Nobody does.

I ate like five of them for the sake of this article and the rest of the bag went promptly into the trash. It sort of breaks my heart to toss them like that... my secret stash of leftover Halloween goodies is dwindling down to almost nothing. But as much as I'd like to enjoy Pumpkin Spice Oreos... at the end of the day they are pretty terrible.
