I am not really a Halloween celebrator. I don’t get dressed up. I don’t leave my light on for trick-or-treaters. I don’t make popcorn balls. I half-thought, once, about hosting a Witches party based on the Roald Dahl book complete with that truly creepy movie, but I didn’t do it.
You would, then, be surprised to know that I am really excited about Halloween.
There is one reason that I get excited for Halloween: Halloween Oreos.
Halloween Oreos, despite what they say on their packages, are the best tasting Oreo around. They claim to be just like the others, but I am here to tell you that they are far better! Maybe it’s the ghosties stamped on the front. Maybe it’s a texture change caused by the orange food coloring-
“Maybe it’s in your head.”
This is what the girl who works at the desk next to mine said to me when I confessed that I had purchased three packets of Oreos at the grocery.
“Are they orange flavored?” she asked me, eyebrows raised.
“No,” I said with a little more sass than necessary.
“Does the package say they taste like the original?”
“Then it’s all in your head.”
This is the point at which others in the office all started chiming in about their favorite type of Oreo. The mint kind seemed to be the number one favorite, but I think they don’t count because they actually have a different flavor.
And they have nothing stamped on the front.
Not even a pumpkin.
