I guess I really like Oreos

The other day I opened a package of Oreos. I guess I was so excited to eat the cookies, that I failed to read the new packaging instructions. This is how I opened it....
I ripped through it in two seconds. Notice how in big letters on the yellow arrow thingy it says, "New, Easy Open Pull Tab." There is even an additional stop sign on the side of the package(right where I was ripping it apart in my moment of weakness)that says"Stop! Open with Pull Tab on Top!" Shoot. These people went to great lengths to not only make opening this package easier for me, but they even tried to help my cookies stay fresher longer. Then I go and totally screw it up. I guess I love these things too much to read, pause, stop or think before opening.
I just tore the sucker open. And I will probably do it the next time I open Oreos. Accidentally. Because I'm an idiot. Or because I'm just real hungry.

I am just like you--no time wasted on things like "instructions" when there are Oreos to be eaten. Speaking of, I may have to make a special trip for some...

haha, I would've done the same thing. Great minds think alike!

Jori said...

Yum,yum oreo's!! I think your way of opening is right on. Our cookies are never going to last long enough to reseal anyway.

Take the Oreos on your trip to Florida. What could be better than a trip with your hubby and a bag of Oreos....no matter how you open them. (By the way I did the very same thing when I opened my last package of Oreos. I knew I liked you!)
Have a great day and a good trip.

It's about freakin' time they made those easier to get into! I don't buy them very often because I eat them all myself, so I can guarantee that I would've made the same mistake opening them had I not seen your post here...

I did the same thing too. Now I know better. All this oreo talk is making me want some!

This was so much fun to watch in person. I loved how the stop sign is right where you rip the bag open on the side. LOL.

I think you were starving - and you did exactly what I would have done.

Don't worry Holly, when we were in Houston, I saw Grandma & Grandpa do the exact same thing :-)

I have found that they taste the same no matter HOW you open them. And if you eat the whole package in one sitting you don't need to fuss about resealing them. Have a couple for me! :)

HA HA! I did the same thing!! Glad to see I am not alone!

I am outraged but not because of how you opened the bag, but the fact that you are eating regular Oreos'. The only way to go is double stuff baby!
