Blueberry Ice Cream Flavored Oreos

When I was out shopping I noticed these ice cream flavored Oreos.  I don’t know if they’re local to Asia or if they’re being sold in the US, but it looked interesting, and kind of weird, so I figured I’d give them a try.

When I opened the pack I could smell blueberry right away, but there was also a weird minty smell.

The inside is definitely a blueberry color.

The taste is something that I couldn’t quite appreciate.  The cookie part is fine.  It tastes like the usual Oreo, but the cream is … weird.  When I bit into it, it had a minty blueberry taste.  It didn’t taste much like ice cream to me.  Suddenly I realized that it tasted like menthol, from a menthol cigarette like a Newport or Marlboro Menthol.  Once I made that connection I had a mental image of eating cigarettes and I couldn’t stomach it anymore.  The rest of the pack went straight to the trash can.

Anyone know if these are being sold elsewhere?  Have you tried them?  What did you think?

Do They Have These Pringles Flavors Where You’re From?

Somehow, these just don’t seem very appetizing to me.  I prefer ‘normal’ flavors, like plain, salt & vinegar.  I found these on the shelf at a Mercury Drugs store, which is a combination pharmacy and convenience type store.
