DailyDirt: Who's That Kid With The Oreo Cookie?

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

We’ve seen a variety of Japanese Kit Kats that are localized with numerous limited-edition flavors, so it shouldn’t be too shocking to see that other snack-makers have adopted similar strategies for their products. Here are just some interesting takes on the Oreo cookie.

By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Oreos In Australia

Most of the Oreos available here in Australia are made in China (as are most biscuits from Nabisco). I don’t buy them as a result. Surely they can be made in Australia? It’s bad enough most of our clothes and furniture and electronics are made in China, our food does not need to be as well!


Re: Re: Oreos In Australia

I’m not sure how true that is. There’s a Nabisco factory near the high school I went to near Richmond VA and I never heard about it shutting down. I know they made their goodies there because you could smell it when they had a fresh batch and you drove within a mile or two (and holy crap did it smell good)

Actually here is a link to it: http://wikimapia.org/8986203/Nabisco-Bakery


Re: "Limited Edition"?

It’s just a cheesy name for a regional test marketing effort. Companies do it all the time, and yes, sometimes you discover products that you really love that end up getting cancelled.

I wish I could find Bluebird’s Red Velvet Cakes, they’re like Red Velvet Twinkies, or Diet Mountain Dew Voltage, or basically every variation of Dew they’ve ever made except that horrible Code Red stuff. I’m a big fan of Diet Dew and I’ve also liked all the different variations they made throughout the 2000s, except for Code Red, the oldest one. Guess which one ended up being permanent? Well, Voltage is now permanent, too, it seems, and it’s fine, but I’ve only ever seen the Diet version once.
