The cookies have the even Oreo logo on one side, and the Pokemon characters on the flip side. There are 16 different characters, with the fabulous Pokemon Mew purportedly the rare. I started looking through the Oreos, and believe it or not, the one-third one that I picked up from a box of 32 cookies was …. a Mew. I was sol surprised to see this rare cookie I wrote to Oreo, asking if they had particularly stocked the boxes they sent out to reporters with Mews, or if I was good lucky. ( A caller representative wrote back and said it was random, so I guess I just lucked out. ) then, of course, I had to go through the entire box and see which Pokemon Oreos I did and did not receive . oreo The most recognizable Pokemon, even among people who never played the game, is probably the adorable Pikachu. My box had a whack four Pikachu cookies. The only other character that showed up four times was another fan favorite, Charmander . Oreo
My box besides contained one Sandshrew, two Sableye, two Bulbasaur, one Lapras, two Cyndaquil, two Dratini, two Grookey, one Jigglypuff ( this might be the cutest oreo ), two Squirtle, two Pancham, one Snivy and three Rowlet. And, of run, the adorable, fabulous Mew. then there was what I ‘m calling the Mystery Oreo. One of my cookies did n’t make the tripper through the mail very well — the cookie with the character on it broke off in transit, leaving only about a third of it still clinging to the cream fill. From the little bit that ‘s left, I ca n’t tell what Pokemon it once was. RIP, little guy. There was merely one Pokemon Oreo that did n’t show up in my box — the Piplup, an adorable short penguin Pokemon. I suppose it ‘s possible the unrecognizable Mystery Oreo was a Piplup, but so fiddling was left of the invention I can never know. ( And I even tried to jigsaw-puzzle it back together with unwrap bits. ) I was honestly surprised by just how many different Pokemon showed up in my Oreo box, particularly since the ship’s company said I merely received a random box. But I ‘m still perplexed by the idea of a food item having a rare offer.

Am I supposed to save the Mew from being eaten because it ‘s rare ? Vacuum-seal it like it ‘s a wedding nightgown ? store it in a vault ? Try and sell it on eBay ? For now I just shoved it back in the box with its friends. I imagine that once the Nabisco strike is over, there ‘ll be more interest in the Pokemon Oreos, but for immediately, I wo n’t be out trying to catch ’em all .
