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?
