My one weakness

I have heard a rumor that in February in honor of Valentine's Day, Nabisco makes an Oreo with red velvet cookies sandwiching cream cheese frosting. I have never taken advantage of it in the past, for fear that if I do in fact get a hold of such a thing, you may end up having to roll me down the street. But since it's February again, I find myself wondering if they will be offering them this year. I tried Googling, which did not seem to offer any way to buy them except from limited stock on Amazon, which makes me slightly concerned that people are hawking year-old cookies.

But red velvet is quite possibly my greatest dessert weakness, outside of my lifelong addiction to regular Coke. Despite my current state of being on a pretty strict diet, I do get one treat day a week where I can eat anything I want, and more than one in the five or so months I've been at this has had red velvet cake as the centerpiece of the indulgence. I really would not mind having a little pack of these special Oreos for one of those days. But I'm nervous about having a whole pack just lying around my house-- even if, or perhaps especially if, they are a year old!

I think you'd probably be safe ordering year-old cookies, considering that they're jam packed with preservatives. Fun fact: Oreos are vegan. That should give you an idea of the ingredients they use. :-P

However, I think you'd be better off buying yourself an entire red velvet cake and eating it until you can't anymore (and then pawning the rest off on friends). Or maybe just get a couple red velvet cupcakes. I can't imagine that red velvet Oreos, which in all likelihood are just normal Oreos with some red food coloring in the cookie parts, would satisfy your red velvety cravings...

Eh, you're probably right! Still, as terrified as I am of the notion that those cookies are vegan, I really like Oreos...

Red velvet is amazing.

If you ever want to write a LARP with diegetic red velvet cookies that one character has a weakness for, please cast me as that character.

I *have* seen them in stores this year, although only once or twice. Not certain, but I *think* I saw them at Wegman's. (No clue if they're any good or not...)
