Oreo is going to great lengths to create new and innovative flavors, so when they announced their new Swedish Fish Oreo flavor, we were intrigued. Does it taste like candy or cookie? How does gummy mesh with chocolate? Will this be the world’s best combination or a horrifying nightmare?
Honestly, eating just one Swedish Fish Oreo will suffice, so what do you do with a leftover package of the world’s sweetest, candy-fish-flavored cookie? Make a dessert lasagna, obviously! In the words of Dr. Ian Malcolm, we were so preoccupied with whether or not we could that we didn’t stop to think if we should. Well, we did, and you can watch the whole thing on this week’s Put This In Your Mouth.
