Fried Chicken Oreos: Real or Fake?

Sorry, but Fried Chicken Oreo cookies are totally fake. Fake, fake, fake. I’m stunned to see that people thought these could possibly be a legit item. Of course, it’s no wonder, with today’s announcement from Lay’s with the new “Do Us a Flavor” chip finalists. (Seriously, Cappuccino??)

Anyway, this photo, credited to Instagrammer moorestyle10 (though also posted by others), shows the package art for “Fried Chicken Oreos.” Well yeah, of course the Internets is going to go insane. But, if common sense doesn’t tell you it’s a fake, let’s take a closer look at the actual image.

First of all, the font for “Fried Chicken” isn’t one of the normal ones that Oreo uses on their packages. I mean, really… Brush Script? And look at the fuzzy halo around the Oreo logo, and the top cookie. Yep, totally a Photoshop job. You can even confirm it by taking a look at the Watermelon Oreo package, where the original photo was ripped from:

So yeah, totally a fun idea, and some of you bought it (or WISH you could buy them!), but, my fellow junk food lovers — they aren’t real.
