We Tried Watermelon Oreos So You Don't Have To

One of these things is not like the other.
The Guilty Pleasure: Two limited-edition varieties of Oreo cookies
Where To Get It: Your favorite grocery store
The Price: About $3
What It Really Costs: It's all in the aftertaste.

I have to hand it to Nabisco for revving the Oreo marketing machine in recent years. The product line was once just a choice of Regular or Double Stuf. Now, there's a new one every time you shop, it seems.

Most of the variations are fairly simple. There are seasonal color variations. There are reverse Oreos with vanilla cookies and chocolate crème filling. Then there's a fairly new offering, the Heads or Tails Mega Stuf Oreo.

The Mega Stuf Oreo obviously targets those folks who can't get enough Oreo filling. Ever jury-rig a Quadruple Stuf Oreo by twisting apart two Double Stuf Oreos, and pressing the fillings together? That's the idea behind Mega Stuf. Judging by the size of the Mega Stuf, it has about three times the filling of a regular Oreo. To give it a little extra novelty, one of the chocolate wafers is replaced by a vanilla golden wafer.

@Charlie Sweezey They're harder to find than they should be. I was looking for them since we heard about them well over a month ago. I got mine at Target. They were up front; I think they were on a register endcap, but might have been in that area with all the seasonal junk near the entrance. Target has amazing inventory control; ask at the Guest Services desk and they'll be able to tell you if they have them, and exactly where in the store they reside.
