Now technically I wasn't really excited about these new Oreos, but after having tried them, I gotta say, they nailed it. The great thing is that your brain messes with you and you almost think that you are actually eating cotton candy and it's just fun. There is that initial hesitation when grabbing for that first cookie, but then you take a bite and now you start thinking about how you are going to STOP eating them. If you don't believe me, just try it for yourself (and then thank me later).
Now on top of that good news, we have something that has been hiding in the basement freezer since... I don't even know, late summer 2014. I had picked this one up for my daughter but then it just sat and sat and sat and sat in the basement freezer.... until now.
Great Value Cotton Candy Ice Cream

So here's the first sundae I made and it was glorious. I thought the whip cream might keep the ice cream in check, but the reality wound up being that I wanted the whip cream to get out of the way of the ice cream. It was a fun sundae to devour (sometimes I split them with my wife, but she was out with my daughter so I inhaled about 92% of it myself).
The next day I made a second sundae for my daughter and she gave it a big thumbs up. She really enjoyed the cotton candy flavoring as well. Me? Well, I made a milkshake of what was left.... and it was awesome. Seriously, it hit the spot. I was very sad when it was gone. I didn't even need a blender, I just added some milk, stirred a bit, and it was just the right consistency and texture to deliver this pleasant but not overwhelming cotton candy flavor. If you pick up this flavor, do yourself a favor, make a milkshake!
Cotton Candy Oreo Verdict? nice!
