Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!
What you ask?
Nuclear proliferation, injustice, human trafficking, belly fat?
Yes, but also…
The “Limited Edition” Swedish Fish Oreo Cookie
Misguided on so many levels
A cookie is not a collector’s item.
A collector’s item is “an object of interest to collectors, especially because it is rare, beautiful, or associated with someone famous.”
What am I going to do? Display the open package of Oreos in a glass case with Faberge eggs, Limoges tea cups, and regrettable Beanie Babies?
Should I collect a limited edition book or first edition classic? Yes!
Literature and art lend themselves to collecting – not trans fat cookies with globs of goo comprised of corn syrup, mineral oil, red dye number 40, and carnauba wax.
As a Swedish Fish purist, I also object.
Stuffing an Oreo with a slick foreign fruit gel is like wearing cultured pearls with Kmart jeans.
The food industry is insulting our sensibilities and fine taste.
Say NO to collector cookies.
Cookies should be eaten – not collected
