Nabisco, Why do you hate me?

Everyone knows that I have a small obsession with Candy Cane Oreos. So starting in Early November I started my watch. My heart would skip a beat when I saw the Nabisco truck. (Ok, just kidding I have never seen a Nabisco truck and since I don’t see Wal-mart trucks anymore this was a total lie.) Anyway, I waited and waited but no happy Candy Cane Oreos came to our little valley. So when I traveled to Utah this last week finding Oreos was my main quest. Besides the whole Grandma’s 90th birthday party. So you can guess how excited I was when my brother Jason called me on my cell and said that the Target in Centerville had them. I naturally rushed to Centerville and promptly bought 5 boxes of Peppermint Oreos.

Not the Candy cane Oreos of my dreams, but they had a candy cane on the label so they had to be close right?
Problem: I ate two of the boxes on my 9 hour drive home. (I did share a few of these with my family)
That only left me with 3 boxes; I ate one yesterday leaving me with only 2 boxes.
Never Fear, my friend Kristy sent me 3 boxes of the actual happy “Candy Cane Oreos”

Ohhhhhhhh, delightful little chunks of candy cane goodness in every bite. So I have discovered if you want the almost perfect “Peppermint” Oreos, you can move to Utah. For the ultimate “Candy Cane Oreos” you will have to move to Colorado, or become friends with Kristy so she can send you some.


  1. I will never understand why you are not 600 pounds.

  2. First of all, YOU WERE IN UTAH? Ahem, I can see how important I am. Second, I have never even see the afforementioned Oreos, but now I need to go and look for them. It might set me on my way to 600 pounds though, for real.

  3. Hey Kristy, will you send me some so I don't need to go shopping?
