Hey. It's been nine days. Sorry, working a lot. On set, I saw something on the craft service tale I've never seen before. "Go Tarts" it's a PoP Tart for those on the "go." Now I thought Pop Tarts were already for those on the go. It's like someone said, I like Pop Tarts but is there any way we can make them more phallic?
I tried it. The icing to dough to filling ratio totally off. The dough part totally over powers the bar. The jelly is now bunched up together in a tube form hitting you hard with it's fruitiness. And they skimped in the icing, the best part. If you're going to change the shape of something we like at least make it taste the same.
Like OREO. Personally I think they've gotten a little carried away with the Oreo cookie varieties. C'mon "dulce de leche?"
* By the way I want to put a stop to something. Dulce de leche is pronounce DOOL-seh deh LAY-cheh. NOT DOOL-cheh. The word is in Spanish. DOOL-cheh would make it Italian. If it was italian it would be spelled dOlce. Everytime I hear someone say, "DulCHE de Leche" it hurts my ears. I'm like Steve Martin in "My Blue Heaven" when Rick Moranis says "capeese."
But I digress. What I really wanted to talk about was the Oreo Cakester. Which is both wonderful and scary at the same time. Like unprotected sex. (Oh man. I'm sorry. That was totally uncalled for. USE A CONDOM!!!!! I SWEAR!!!! YOU WILL DIE!!!!!)
Somehow Oreo took the flavors we have loved forever: Chocolate Oreo Cookie and Oreo Cream Filling and "fluffed them up" into lovely miniature cream-filled cake sandwiches. BUT THE TASTE IS EXACTLY THE SAME. Familiar. Comforting. Same taste. Different texture. They are awesome. However I don't understand how they can do that. How do they match the flavor exactly?!! This is the scary part. There can be one answer, really...chemistry. Because if I learned anything from Fast Food Nation it's that the people making the stuff that we like the taste of, are not cooks anymore, but food chemists.
So try them. But then, put the box down. (It's harder than you know.)
