Swedish Fish Oreos: Wait… These Really Exist?!?

We may need a few minutes to digest the following information.

Almost as long as we’d need to digest the actual product outlined below.

Because according to patrons of Kroger, Swedish Fish Oreos are now a dessert item that actually exists.

And here’s the thing: we love Swedish Fish! And we love Oreos!

But Dan of The Impulsive Buy has shared a detailed review of the product, which gives us important insight into this gummy- flavored, creme-filled cookie.

It starts with the following, amazing meme, inspired, of course, by Jurassic Park:

“Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.” Dr. Ian Malcolm famously spoke this line in Jurassic Park, and ever since, it echoes in my brain whenever a particularly weird, strange, or repulsive snack food is released," Dan wrote.

He went on to say the following of the actual Oreo: 

It has potent, puckering pops of candied cherry and a slightly off-putting finish of waxy gelatin.

There’s a processed chocolate aftertaste, but even then, it has to battle for supremacy with the cherry cough syrup layer that the creme plastered on the back of my throat.

Here is what else we can report:

This type of Oreo is only available at Kroger.

It costs $3 per package.

Will you dare give these a shot?

We can think of a few cookies we’d prefer to eat instead…
