Oreo’s are best known for being America’s favorite cookie, but they are also a very versatile cookie. Oreo’s are chocolate cookies with sweet, white creme in the middle. There have been dozens and dozens of different flavors of Oreo released over the past few decades, including seasonal flavors and fan-picked flavors.
There are also many different ways to enjoy Oreos. You can eat them like a regular sandwich, or you can dip them into milk first, or you can even take them apart and eat the cookies and the creme completely separate. Or, you can deep fry them and enjoy Oreos that way.
Deep frying cookies and candy is a well-known practice in the southern United States, and this is the first time that a major fast food restaurant has added deep-fried Oreos to its menu. The Oreo Bites as Popeye has dubbed them, first debuted back in October 2018, and has only available in one test market city for about a month.
Popeye’s makes these deep fired Oreos by taking Double Stuf Oreos and coating ’em in funnel cake batter, and drops them in the fryer. So not only do you get deep fried Oreos, but you get double the cookie and double the creme.
These deep-fried Oreos will be available in packs of two, three, or four, and they’ll start at a $1.99 price point. As of May 15, all Popeye’s locations across the United States will have deep-fried Oreos on their menus, and this expansion is not expected to be a limited edition run.
People have flocked to social media to show pictures of the deep-fried Oreos and the reaction to having this beloved dessert available at a fast food establishment. The reactions are entirely positive across the board, with people enjoying these Oreos at work, on the go or as a way to relax.
