There is a new product available on Amazon that turns any Oreo cookie into a tiny record that plays music.
Oreo cookies are a timeless treat. Who doesn’t remember mowing throw an entire box of these bad boys when they were a wee little tike and didn’t care what sugar and trans fats were? (And maybe you still don’t.) They’re the cookie that nobody hates, the cookie that everyone loves, and the cookie that started the trend of removing its various components so the joy of cookie consumption could be extended by eating them all separately.
And now there is a turntable that comes with three boxes of Oreos.
Really, the toy part of this is of secondary consideration. Sure, it’s neat to place a cookie on a tiny plastic turntable and then hear some lo-fi tunes come out of it, and it’s cool that the song changes “with a bite of the cookie”, according to Amazon. But the really cool part of this holiday gift is the cookies themselves.
You get three--count ‘em, THREE--bags of cookies with this toy: one box of regular Oreos, one box of Oreo White Fudge, and one box of Oreo Thins. Yes, buying them each separately would be a much better deal than buying them all combined with a stupid plastic toy, but then you’d have to buy each bag of cookies separately and then explain your purchase to raised eyebrow of the grocery store cashier.
That toy, by the way, looks pretty frickin’ cheap. It looks like it’s made of cardboard with a few plastic bits for the power button, the turntable, and the little needle arm. Don’t expect this thing to last too long once you start using it.
On the plus side, that cheap cardboard box can apparently record a holiday message for you to send to whomever you want to gift with three bags of Oreos.
The Oreo Music Box is available for $19.99 on Amazon, so order now and send the gift of cookies this Holiday season.
