When I was home for Christmas, I made the requisite trip to Wal-Mart. And it was during a Packer game so even though it was two days before Christmas, the store was practically empty. And that meant I had time to peruse the aisles without annoyance. It was a Christmas miracle!
And I spent a little too much time in the Oreo aisle so January Snacks of the Week should probably be renamed Oreo of the Week. There were just so many flavors. It was like Oreo flavor creators walked past all of the Pop-Tart flavors in the grocery store and thought, "Oh, game on, Pop Tarts. GAME. ON."
Given my love for coconut in general, the new Coconut Delight Oreo Fudge Cremes were the first ones I threw in the cart.
The cookies look like Thin Mints.
But my first few bites of them reminded me of Samoas. Or Caramel Delights I guess is what the Girls Scouts are calling them. They will always be Samoas to me. In my mind, coconut and Oreos were just not going to be a good combination but it works. And it is pretty delicious! And to my knowledge (and I am pretty much an expert at this point), there has not been a coconut flavored Pop Tart.
Snack of the Week is a weekly feature where I profile the best snack that I am eating. Equal parts healthy and indulgent are how I aspire (and sometimes fail) to eat my way through life and I try to reflect in these snacks. All snacking is done with a budget-friendly mindset as well.

If you have any suggestions for snacks you would like me to try and profile, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Unless it is super weird or expensive, I will probably try it.
