New Swedish Fish Oreos Are Not For The Faint Of Heart

We're about to lose our cookies. 🙊

We gladly embraced the Lemon Oreo. And the Watermelon Oreo. We even tasted the Fruit Punch Oreo, for goodness sake!

But a Swedish Fish Oreo is simply far too much to handle.

Yup, Nabisco confirmed this week that Swedish Fish Oreos are indeed its latest limited-edition flavor, sold only in Kroger grocery stores. Those who have gotten their hands on the flavor confirm they look as wild as they sound:

If you’re fishing around for a snack, then this probably isn’t the best choice.

The new Oreo has a “potent” flavor with a “slightly off-putting finish of waxy gelatin,” said one taster on The Impulsive Buy.

I couldn’t get the cough syrup taste out of my mouth,” said another from Thrillist.

Maybe it’s a good thing these Oreos have limited availability: They’ll be sold only in Kroger stores for a limited time. Of course if you’re feeling adventurous, you can always buy them on the black ― er, is that red? ― market online.

We’ll stick to our homemade chocolate oat cookies for now, thank you.
