Asia the place to go for cool twists on old standbys from the snack shelf. Japan is the undisputed king of new flavors. China ain’t too shabby.
Save the jokes about fried cat, or purist classic Oreo cries, a trip to a Shanghai supermarket yielded these flavors of Oreo:
- Birthday Cake (生日蛋糕味)
- Ice Cream Series – Vanilla (冰淇淋风味香草味)
- Ice Cream Series – Matcha (冰淇淋风味抹茶味)
- Green Grape + Peach (水晶葡萄味+水蜜桃味)
- Orange + Mango (甜橙味+芒果味)
- Raspberry + Blueberry (树莓味+蓝莓味)
And I am giving them away to readers, suitable for stocking stuffers or to confuse Santa into thinking he has landed in China, 6 winners will receive a box of their own.
