Oreo Cakester - So Close

I was in Target last night and saw these:



They're like whoopie pies - except like an Oreo! Chocolate cake, soft creamy white filling - oooh baby. Now, I love me an Oreo cookie, as does Bellaboo, so I grabbed a box for my cart. As a passing habit, I read the label and found:

"ALLERGY INFORMATION: MANUFACTURED ON EQUIPMENT THAT PROCESSES PEANUTS AND TREE NUTS."

Damn you Nabisco! Why do you tempt me so, only to pull the rug out from under me? Ah well, at least I still have regular Oreos.

I was bummed when I saw these were a no-go. I was excited because it Oreo thinking it might be safe. I guess not.

Thanks for your comment Nicole! I was so bummed when I saw the allergen warning. Just shows you can't be too careful...

i am shocked! the oreo name implies 'nut free'. My daughter was sent home with it. Glad her teachers were aware. I guess we have to be even more careful!!
