Buzzfeed is reporting, brace for it, that Monday, September 10, will be the day the twist-off cookies officially jump the shark: Nabisco will debut candy corn-flavored flavored Oreos. So often you've sunk the crispy cookie into milk and thought -- this would be so much better if it was flavored like candy corn.

So, can you get behind this? I'd vote a big no. Candy corn, on its own, gives that off teeth-grittingly sweet, lick-a-dentist-chair chemical vibe. To have another thing be artificially flavored with the taste of a thing that's artificially flavored is too much. There's an important Venn diagram from Alice Laussade to remember, who wrote a memorable post on the subject of candy corn:

Shortly after reading the article's title and a few dry heaves I threw up a little in my mouth.  So. Gross.

I love candy corn. I eat each layer separately (FYI they all taste the same).

The other day I tried a coconut flavored chocolate covered Oreo cookie creation. It was glorious. But I will stand by this: candy corn is an abomination.
