Dark Chocolate Oreos
Laura Lee - December 25, 2018


By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Now that the holiday season is nearing it’s end,  we can all admit to having overdone it with the Peppermint Bark Oreo’s (in the best way possible).  We’re ready for the next new and exciting thing. Thankfully, Dark Chocolate flavored Oreo’s are about to hit up store shelves…


This new flavor is meant to help us fully embrace the darkness of the long winter months, while still bringing in tons of brightness into our lives! And unlike the Peppermint Bark flavor, these one’s are here to stay.


Unfortunately they won’t be out on time for gift giving season to be shoved into your Oreo loving friend’s stocking, but at least there’s something to look forward to after Christmas too.
