Peanut Butter Pie Oreos
Claire Miles - January 22, 2019


By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

January can be a tough month. It’s the start of the New Year and we’re all still feeling down that we didn’t have the crazy New Year’s start that we had hoped for. Well, no need to fret even a second longer, because Chocolate Peanut Butter Oreos are here to save the day and make all of your worries go away in the sweetest and most nostalgic way possible…


And what’s even more exciting? They are already available for purchase on store shelves, unlike many exciting announcements that then decide to break our hearts and tell us that something is about to come out in the near future and then leaves us waiting around anxiously with no end date.


The cookies themselves in this special edition aren’t the chocolate ones, and in fact are actually graham cookies. The cream between the two cookies is half chocolate and half peanut butter, and although reviews so far have been mixed, we’ve got to try them for ourselves!
