Pokémon and Nabisco team up to release limited addition Pokémon-themed Oreos. These special cookies contain up to 16 different designs, with some harder to find than others. A commercial had also been launched to sponsor the release. Creative? Indeed. And, it really gives the nostalgic feel of the good old days of trying to catch ’em all. Let us take a look into these interesting snacks, and find out if they really are a challenge to find.
Pokémon Oreo; Gotta Find ‘Em All:
Upon purchasing these delectable treats, the packaging had been quite interesting. The first noticeable part about this, is that it read “Some are harder to find than others”. However, within two packages, I was able to find up to 15/16 of these unique designs. The designs are as follows:
- Mew (The rare one).
Sadly, there hasn’t been any contest or challenges regarding these cookies. Although, it is fun to see what Pokémon Oreo you get. It kind of reminds me of those mystery toys you purchase, where you never know what’s inside. Although, it should be kept in mind that despite the excitement, it’s best to not get too excited over them. Don’t get me wrong, if you love both Oreo and Pokémon, knock yourself out. Just don’t go overbuying, because I’m sure there’s only so much your stomach can handle.
Pokémon Oreo; Quantity Over Quality:
Now for the interesting part: taste testing. As far as these are concerned, they’re not entirely the best. I’ve had Oreo as a kid, and sometimes as an adult. However, these specific cookies are found to be easily breakable. The cookie part chips easy if mishandled, and the frosting is easy peel. In addition, it’s ridiculously sweet, so much so that they give you a bloated feeling after only five cookies. Now, that could just me, since I am an adult. But, who knows.
They’re also not that sturdy, as they can easily slide apart with a single push. It’s still okay, though it’s a little underwhelming when there’s no challenge to try and pull them apart.
The designs, themselves, are really unique. The plus side, is that at least they actually look like they were made with some effort. Sometimes, you get these cookies that are supposed to have cute characters on them, but they’re either misshapen or distorted. Thankfully, with Pokémon Oreo’s, you’ll find no such problems.
In conclusion, are they worth it? Like I said, if you like them, of course. If not, it’s up to you to decide if you want to give these little snacks a try. These Pokémon Oreo cookies are limited edition, so it’s only a matter of time before they leave the shelves. You can purchase them currently at your local Target or Walmart stores where available. Just avoid buying them online, as to avoid getting tricked by potential Team Rocket goons selling these bad boys.
