Candy corn is a polarizing food product. Some love those little yellow, orange and white buggers. Others detest candy corn with a level of passion usually reserved for rival sports teams or insect bites. There’s really no in-between.
The Oreo cookie, on the other hand, is one of the most beloved food products in America. In a lot of ways, the Oreo is America. It’s a melting pot of black and white, crunchy and creamy. The cookies are the coasts and they are the most visible parts, but it’s the blue collar cream in the middle that holds the Oreo together. And then there’s milk. Milk is Chinese labor, or something. It augments the Oreo, but it can never replace the ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit of the Oreo.
Wow. That analogy really went off the rails.
Anyhow, what matters is that the universally-love Oreo is about to take a bold step into the love-it-or-hate-it world of candy corn. Starting this Monday, September 10th, special edition Candy Corn Oreos will be available exclusively at Target.
It’s a Halloween promotion, so these disgusting abominations/best things ever will only be available for a select time.
