Is This for Real?

I about died when I saw a commercial for this new product by "Oreo":

Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you the "Triple- Double Oreo"... that's right... a regular Oreo is no longer good enough for the average American. Now we need three cookies and two layers of icing to satisfy our cookie craving. I had to Google this to make sure I heard the commercial correctly!

Can you believe this?!?! I find this completely NUTS! Now don't get me wrong. I love a good cookie or a scoop of ice cream just like the next person but an entire bag of "Triple- Double Oreo's"? So crazy!

Whatever happened to just a good ol' "Oreo" with a glass of milk? These new suckers pack on an extra 50 calories and more saturated fat than the originals.

I'm not gonna lie... this kind of disgusts me. {I hope I have not offended anyone... I apologize if you have gone out and bought these!} It just leaves me wondering... is this what America has come to? We live in a society where everything is "super-sized" and we are told that, when it comes to food, "bigger is better". Sweets are good... I'm thinking of grabbing of some Fro-Yo tonight actually ;) But... it's all about moderation and controlling what you eat. We are responsible for our own actions and it's my own fault if I gain a few extra pounds from too many calories or not enough exercise but wouldn't it be much easier if products like these weren't produced?

What do y'all think?


  1. wow. i was actually flipping through my better homes & garden & noticed way to many food advertisements for super sized larger food.

    america is out-of-control.

  2. I hope you find something you will love!
