In China. Is someone over there a Dan fan?

They're not Oreos, they're Jif Jaffs, but are made by Nabisco. I guess I'll have to keep an eye out for them when I go go the grocery store of my people. Might have to mailbag them if someone doesn't beat me to the punch.

That just sounds all kinds of nasty. The fake chocolate taste of Oreo is bad enough to me. I can't even begin to imagine how horrible that awful flavor mixed with fake cheese product tastes. I'm just guessing the cheese is fake because the oreo is.

Asian snacks have some weird flavours. I've tried shit like cola and ice-cream flavoured potato chips. They are not good.

I'm willing to try cheese-dipped Oreos a la Ryckert. I'm not so willing to try "cheese" "Oreos", however.

However, Jif Jaffs apparently are rolling out a chili flavor as well, and I'd be down for trying that if they did an Oreo version. Spicy chocolate is one of nature's greatest gifts.

If these show up in one of my local Asian grocery stores, I will 100% buy them.

@casepb: I dunno...I eat 90% on the straight and narrow these days, but I’ll have an oreo once in a great while (I have kids, so we get some fake food in the house) and I think they’re pretty tasty.

These cheese oreos can screw right the hell off, though...

Im sure they made it taste good otherwise they wouldnt bother selling it. But still, naw.

Cheese and crackers is at least as good, if not cheaper. Plus you wont get all the garbage companies put in their food.

Give me a sack of Cheddar Goldfish Crackers or better yet...Planter's cheez balls from the 1980s!

JMO: Jax (Bachman) are better than Cheetos (Frito-Lay). Both good, but I like the soft crunch of Jax and not the hard snap of a Cheeto.

@monkeyking1969: Those planters cheese balls were the best. Every time my mom let me get those at the grocery store, it was like... no, it was better than Christmas morning. Once you were done snacking on delicious salty, crunchy treats, you had a can you could throw your GI Joes in. Before dumping slime all over them.

There's a Youtube video that shows they're still available. In the Middle East.

That comparison would only be relevant if you were willing to put a slice of cheesecake on your mayo and roast beef sandwich.

@littlewask: Not true. I've had cheese cake with an oreo cookie crust before. Also, they don't specify what kind of cheese they're using, if any.

I mean, if they're using Velveeta, then, ya, nasty.

Yeah. I mean, if it were cream cheese, which is what you use for cheesecake, I'd be down. Heck, I'd dunk oreos in cream cheese right now if I had them.

But the cartoon oreo guy is lifting what looks to be a hard cheese like swiss that's as orange as cheddar.

Also, given that cheese isn't really a thing in China (At least when I was last there 30 years ago gah, I'm old.) I'm surprised that this is a thing and that the flavor will be anything but an abomination.

Edit: So apparently cheese is now the next big thing there. So, this... makes sense?

Or, maybe if you took cheesecake and deep fried it in batter then covered in Cheeto dust. ...Which I will assume, Dan will tell me is a Kansas tradition.

This is interesting to me! One thing I always notice about Chinese food is the absence of cheese with any of their food. Granted, I'm eating Chinese food primarily at buffets in Washington State, so I'm not putting a ton of stock into the authenticity of the offerings, but I did still find it noteworthy. What makes you say that cheese is the next big thing there? I'm interested to see if that has any influence on their dishes.

@littlewask:In Chinese dishes (At least Cantonese/Hong Kong style, that I'm familiar with.) there is a distinct lack of dairy. A couple of reasons I can think of:

A lot of us are lactose intolerant. Like a -lot- of us. Why incorporate things into our diet that makes our stomachs hurt?

Since there's a lack of dairy, things like milk and cheese aren't horribly common or regularly consumed. It might be a chicken and egg sort of thing, as I'm fairly tolerant of dairy. I can't eat cereal in the morning or the dairy will wreck my gut, but by noon, I can do cheese burgers and by the evening, I can down a tub of ice cream. But if I were to do the ice cream in the morning, bad things happen.

You also have Chinese medicine where you don't want certain things in your body. I'm guessing moldy, chunky milk is probably on that list? I know cold water's kind of a no, no. My understanding is that cold drinks are also seen as unclean. Also, medicinally, my understanding is that hot drinks are thought to be more beneficial.

Up until the past year or two, certain cheeses were banned. The ban was lifted, so I'm sure folks are rushing to see what the big deal is. You also have a lot of poor Chinese folk who in the past decade suddenly became very well off, that coincided with a desire to be more Westernized, and you have a perfect storm for an uptick in cheese consumption.

I would be okay if it was cream cheese on the Oreos. Not that yellow processed cheese.
