In the latest example of food only a pregnant woman or someone who had a taste buds accident would enjoy, People reports that there’s a chain of candy shops selling Oreos with pickles inside of them. Did someone insane in the concept department at Oreos HQ okay this? Or is this one of those rogue Oreo vendor things? Let’s find out!
Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shop is a candy store chain with nine locations in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and its owner, Bill Kelly, has foisted this insane concoction on us Oreo lovers.
And he just did it! I’m calling Oreo 911. Dude puts pickle slices in America’s Favorite Cookie. How in the hell am I supposed to dip it in milk now?
As crazy as the flavor combination sounds, Kelly promises that pickle Oreos are an absolute treat. In fact, he told the Dayton Daily News, they’re “kind of a big dill.”
You can show yourself out, Bill.
Kelly also explained the pickle Oreo production process in an email to the outlet. “We took an Oreo cookie, took it apart, put a very thin slice of pickle in the middle, put the Oreo back to together, then covered it in chocolate. Cause everything is better covered in chocolate!!!!!!,” he wrote.
Ok, true. Kelly claims that the pickle slice is mostly overwhelmed by the chocolate and cream and only gives a “hint” of a pickle flavor. If you can’t make it to one of Grandpa Joe’s Candy Shops, you can order pickle-filled Oreos on their website. A pack of three goes for $9.
Bill’s big on pickles, seeing as his candy shops offer “pickle soda, pickle lollipops, pickle mints” and “pickle cotton candy.” Now, I like pickles as much as the next queer person but pickle mints is not the way unless you hate your fellow humans. Then again…
