First Post...The Triple Double!!!

Okay, don't get too worked up.  It's only the first post.  And, really, you don't even know me yet, so there's hardly any justification for the three exclamation points in the post title.  Or so you would think.

Here's the thing, fine reader.  Today is a day for celebration.  It is the new dawn of a changed, new world!  Because I'm blogging, you ask?  No.  Certainly not.  Because this is the first post?  Nope, and it's not a post on literature or other publishing points of interest, either.  Because the National Biscuit Company, now known to you as Nabisco,  has confirmed to NBC News the existence of the NEXT OREO???

Whoa.  Did that just happen?

Look, I know.  It's a lot to take in.  Sure, a regular Oreo is great, yet we all know a part of us wanted more.  Needed more.  Nabisco responded.  In fact, you probably thought the world couldn't handle any more of the chocolaty, creamy goodness that was introduced as the Double Stuff Oreo.  But you were wrong.

Now comes the Triple Double Oreo.  The Big Mac of chocolate cookies, it follows the same structural discipline:  Cookie, filling, cookie, filling, and cookie.  Then they kick it up a notch.  Just when you think you've got it all figured out, you discover one of the cream layers is actually...chocolate!! 

I know.  I just blew your world.  So celebrate the day, people.  Things just got real in the cookie biz.  http://bites.today.com/_news/2011/05/10/6618156-new-oreo-confirmed-and-its-bigger-than-ever

Also, I'm blogging.  About culture, travel, and author stuff.  So that's cool, right?


  1. And now I think I need another incline notch on the treadmill to counteract the triple Oreo.

  2. I know. Just what we all needed - a cookie Big Mac. ;)
