Nabisco Oreo Sandwich Cookies Rainbow Shure Bert!

And now, after months of nostalgia and dreaming and half-hearted dalliances with the Girl Scouts' Savannah Smiles, lemon Oreos are back. Or are they?
Like seeing that high school crush after an intervening summer, this Oreo isn't *quite* as I remember. Sure, the looks are the same. The style is there. But there's just something....off. And I freely admit that perhaps my memories of that first summer are perhaps rosier than they actually were, but the taste of these Oreos just seems a little different. I hate to use the term "shoe polish," because that sounds much harsher than it actually is, but that's what's coming to mind. The lemon flavor just seems a little more pungent than what I tasted in that summer of 2014.
Don't get me wrong - these are still very good, especially if you don't care for the chocolate cookie of the original Oreo. And it still pairs well with ice cold milk. And you can make a seriously good no-bake cheesecake with them. So there's all of that. But I still can't shake the feeling that something has changed between us. And it vexes me.
All that aside, the lemon Oreo is a superior expression of the sandwich cookie. Get some. Savor them. And then get some more. They are that good.
me Oreo is the best, I can recommend it, its tasty is delicious and I like its
desing, I could buy it again and soon for my family.
