Should We Start A Safe Cookies Thread Like the Smarties One?

pNow that someone has actually seen the pb Oreos in a store in the U.S., does this mean that we have lost the battle with Nabisco U.S.? /p
pWhat does everything think about having a "safe" cookies thread like the one we did for Smarties whereby an American who wants "safe" Oreos (etc.) can sign up and be matched with a Canadian who is willing to send them?/p
pI have to say, last night, my heart was broken when I saw an Oreos commercial. It's the one with the little brother trying to dip his Oreo into a sippy cup. And my children can still eat Oreos safely./p
pWhat do you think? I would be quite pleased to co-ordinate it as I did with the Smarties thread (which really seems to have died out)./p
pMany thanks and best wishes! [img][/img]/p

I had thought of that, but I think the cookies would be mostly crumbs by the time they arrived (not that wouldn't taste just as good that way...).

You mean there are safe cookies out there? Considering the answers I have received from Nabisco, all of the "oops" by Keebler, and the warnings on all the Mother's, we haven't had packaged cookies around in a long time.

Going Nuts, you're probably right. I know that even sometimes when I bring the Ritz crackers home from the store, they're already turned to crumbs and really not clear why, it's not like I'm flinging them along as I walk [img][/img]
Still Head Cook, yes, we do have "safe" cookies still in Canada. That's what ticks me off.
I finally saw a commercial last night for the pb/chocolate Oreos and I was just SO upset and my children can still eat Oreos safely. Even my DH couldn't figure out why they would need a pb/chocolate cream combo in there. Yuck!
Best wishes! [img][/img]
