90s kids can finally rejoice knowing that Oreo O’s cereal is back on the market.
The cereal has been gone for over a decade (even longer if you remember that marshmallow disaster they replaced it with.) It was available in South Korea up until recently, and many die-hard fans spent loads of money for some on eBay.
I was stumbling through the aisles of Walmart today. Now, Walmart is a place that I cannot stand to be in: it is Dante’s Inferno, and everyone knows it.
Lo and behold, as I ground my cart through the ashes of society, seraphim trumpets sounded. Cherubim lowered a box down in front of me. I was in awe.
As the blinding light subsided, I came face to face with my greatest wish. The cereal that I had been craving for over a decade stood in front of me. This was my reward. I had been through enough, and this was my manna from heaven.
Okay, so I’m being a bit dramatic here, but you need to understand: it’s Oreo O’s. One of the first things I ever read as a kid was the newspaper in the box telling the tale of cows stealing the cereal. I knew it was stashed in Fort Knox. I knew if I ever visited Fort Knox, I’d surely nag them for Oreo O’s (forget the gold.)
This is my childhood. I don’t care about the other 90s nostalgia reboots. Crystal Pepsi was okay, and I couldn’t care less about any form of Dunkaroos, but Oreo O’s needed to come back.
And so they have.
