Good for junk food cravings
Someone gave us a box of these as a gift for watching their kids for a few hours. At first glance, I thought that they did not appeal to me very much. They looked like the kind of junk food that was overly sweet and wouldn't taste very good. So I put off trying them for quite awhile. But I had an evening where I was craving some kind of sweet junk food. What I really wanted was a Tastykake, but since they are not often available in our part of the country, I decided to settle for these Oreo Cakesters. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were far better than I expected. They certainly don't measure up to Tastykakes (nothing does), but I found that they were adequate to satisfy my junk food craving. They are not overly sweet, and they do have a pleasant flavor. However, it is a flavor that I think I would quickly tire of and not enjoy very much if I tried to eat too many. But this can be a good thing, since it allows me to satisfy a junk food craving without overindulging in junk food and being extremely unhealthy.
