Oreo Review
Nicey replies: I hope I didn't give the impression that nobody would enjoy them as this obviously isn't the case. I know plenty of people in the UK who have tried them and like them a lot. They do seem to be in the minority, however. Nanny Nicey told me just last week about one her friends who enjoys Oreos dipped in peanut butter, which sounds like she has been exploring American culture in a fairly vigourous way.

Here at NCOTAASD we like nothing better than exploring other cultures through the medium of biscuits, and over the years we found some truly interesting, tasty and stimulating things to go with our tea. We've also encountered some pretty awful ones too, but as you say keep an open mind you never know.


Oreo Review
Nicey replies: Yes I recorded that interview last night in the BBC studios here in Cambridge. I brought a flask of tea as theirs is a bit grim.

Any how the Oreo is very obviously a national treasure in the US so it deserves some sensitive handling as a topic when discussing it face to face. I must admit to keeping my head down though in the supermarket when I bought a pack for sampling during the interview. Although the guy in the till didn't share my embarrassment and the engineer at the studio had never even heard of Oreos.

Oreo Review
Nicey replies: Well Oreos are obviously doing something right, given the amount they sell and the armies of Oreo clones around the globe from other manufacturers. I just think the fact UK market hasn't responded to the Oreo thus far is not because we haven't had a advert telling us how we apparently should be eating them. If anything now that we do have such a 'helpful' advert its just likely to make us more determined when passing them over. Also unless they have revised their pricing significantly then I think they are a bit out of touch there too.

Recently on a visit to the Imperial War Museum I read a war time orientation leaflet issued to US servicemen who were being stationed in the UK. It was full of helpful stuff such as how we call gas petrol and bars pubs and so on. Alas it didn't have a page on cookie / biscuit orientation.

Oreo Review
Nicey replies: I think I would need to see this all first hand in order to be convinced, although with your growing empire it appears that people like liquidised biscuits. You certainly have a lot of useful flavours in there including Custard, and Custard Creams covering all possible bases. Horrah! for all your mad milkshakes.

Do you serve tea?


Oreo Review
Nicey replies: I think your mail balances out the one from the lady who said they bring back happy childhood memories of sitting in mountain meadows munching on Oreos whilst watching the clouds go by and generally communing with nature.
