That title is a moufful!
I was doing grocery shopping the other day, and not too many minutes after restocking on Edy’s Peppermint ice cream, to what did my eyes appear but a big display of these suckers. Christmas definitely brings on the kid in me and I nearly peed all over myself and Wal-Mart at the sight of this fantastic (new?) addition to the holiday season.
Of course, I HAD to have them (grocery budget be darned). But let me tell you something… Yes, the packaging is cool, it’s nostalgic and there are cute designs on the cookies, but CANDY CANE CREME IS A RIPOFF!!! And remember when I said they were fantastic? They’re not.
This is nothing more than Oreo Mint with a new (smaller) package and no green dye. They couldn’t even be bothered to give us little bits of candy cane? I would’ve settle for specks of red dye. Come to think of it, I didn’t even see Oreo Mint cookies in the Oreo section of the cookie aisle, so either they don’t make’em anymore (which would be horrible) or Nabisco is hoping we “forget” the similarities this season.
How dare Nabisco sully the holiday season by scamming us good consumers all so that they can line their pockets? Buyer beware.
