Have you heard about the my OREO creation contest that OREO is running right now? I’ve already submitted my idea for a bananas foster OREO. It would take several flavors coming together to make it, but my lord it would be heavenly. Bananas, caramel, and a little bit of a rum flavoring all together in one sandwich cookie.
Does anyone else get super excited when they see a new flavor OREO? Just a couple of weeks ago when I was grocery shopping at Walmart, I had a couple turn around with huge grins on their face because of my excitement for the jelly donut flavor. I hadn’t realized that I had people listening to me other than my husband.
There are so many new flavors popping up. I just can’t handle it. The coconut thins flavor just showed up for my coconut lovers out there. I’ve also spotted blueberry pie and key lime pie cookies while I’ve been in North Carolina on vacation. I can vouch for the heavenly flavor of the blueberry pie flavor.
I have found a new love and it’s not the jelly donut or blueberry pie flavor. The salted caramel thin cookie is where it’s at. Just a little warning, they’re super addicting too.
In fact, if they would just tweak the salted caramel cookie to accommodate my bananas foster idea, I would be one happy lady. I mean besides the fact that I would be a winner, I would also be $500,000 richer. Let’s not forget that you would also get to see your submission come to life in New York City. That would be quite an exciting adventure.
If we were to add rum extract into the salted caramel filling and a vanilla and banana flavor into the golden cookies, we would have my OREO creation. See how simple that would be?! wink wink
I really wanted to see how the flavors would taste together including the salted caramel cookie, so I threw everything together in a baked pancake. Let’s just say that this is the baked pancake you’ve been needing in your life. My two favorite parts were the chunks of chopped OREO and the buttered rum syrup. I can’t even begin to describe how delicious it is. I bet you’re anxious to get your hands on that pancake casserole recipe, it will be showing up next.
What is your favorite flavor? Seriously, get over and submit your idea. What’s the worst that will happen? You’ll win, make money, watch your submission be created in NYC.
