New Double Chocolate Fudge Oreo Fudge Cremes & Awkward Mondays: Women’s Bathrooms
Junk Food Nation, let’s talk about women’s bathrooms. Growing up, I had no idea they were different…I thought they were the same as men’s bathrooms. Of course, by middle school I realized that they probably didn’t have urinals, but all through high school I never had the desire nor any reason to go into a women’s bathroom. Even during those parental moments when you’re six years old and have to pee and your mother takes you into the women’s bathroom, I think those situations always arose when there was an single room bathroom – i.e., it was exactly identical to the men’s room.
It wasn’t until freshman year of college that I discovered the women’s and men’s bathrooms were different. Calm down, perverts. It was like the second month of school when I was at a friend’s coed frathouse/dining hall/bar; it was between meal hours so no one was around. I was working on something in the computer lab and got up to pee. I went in, used the facilities, and then came out, wondering… “Wait…where are the urinals? And why are there flowers in here? And why is there a couch in here?”
I don’t know how I didn’t notice these things as I went in, but when I came out, I noticed that this Women’s Restroom was like AN APARTMENT. There was potpourri, flowers, a couch to sit on. Having used disgusting men’s rooms all my life, which are essentially troughs and sinks, I was shocked. I remember running out and exclaiming to all my friends, “HAVE YOU SEEN THIS SHIT???” And we all went piling back into the women’s room, marveling at how much nicer it was than the men’s room, until a female friend of ours came in and said, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GUYS DOING??” and kicked us out.
Over the years I’ve come to find out that in a LOT of places, in fact, MOST places, the women’s bathrooms are always a lot nicer than the men’s rooms. They have couches, nice perfume, better music, fluffy towels, etc. It’s not all good though – the Junk Food Gal told me that her job, they have a nice little basket of lotions and other goodies for ladies to partake in whilst in the restroom. Among those goodies is…. *gag* …. a pair of toenail clippers (???). And yes, she indicated that last time she looked, there was a big ol toenail stuck in the clippers. Gross, ladies. Gross.
Did YOU guys know that women’s rooms were different than men’s rooms? Let me know in the comments below. And on that note, today’s junk food: New Double Chocolate Fudge Oreo Fudge Cremes!
New Double Chocolate Fudge Oreo Fudge Cremes were purchased at Walmart, though at this point I’ve seen them at several grocery stores. The word “NEW” as opposed to “LIMITED EDITION” make it seem like this flavor is here to stay.
I was conflicted about purchasing these New Double Chocolate Fudge Oreo Fudge Cremes. Why? Because honestly, we can all guess what this is going to taste like. Very chocolatey, and very fudgey. There’s nothing unheard of here. It isn’t flavored with saffron or even citrus. Double chocolate? I don’t even have to eat these to know how they taste.
Still, I see the word NEW and I have to try it. New Double Chocolate Fudge Oreo Fudge Cremes have the standard caloric count as other Fudge Cremes, and lots of sugar. Yay.
New Double Chocolate Fudge Oreo Fudge Cremes look like other Fudge Cremes too. I still wonder who had the bright idea to take HALF an Oreo and then cover it in fudge. While I’m not a super big fan of these, it was a brilliant idea. It’s wonder it took so long.
I took a bite of these New Double Chocolate Fudge Oreo Fudge Cremes, and my predictions were confirmed – just a big ol bite of chocolate. Interestingly, however, I was able to sort of discern the differences in each chocolatey layer. The outer layer of fudge was of course full of oil but also full of cocoa flavor like a good fudge usually has.The creme layer was VERY sweet and almost had more of a chocolate mousse flavor to it. Maybe I’m giving it too much credit, but it tasted lighter and more like chocolate frosting. And the Oreo cookie itself was not sweet, giving off that nice Oreo wafer bitter flavor. Mixed together – a chocolate explosion.
I ended up liking these more than I thought I would. I mean, if you’re going to do Double Fudge, then you might as well hit me over the head with chocolate. And that’s what they did here. Golf clap, Oreo, golf clap.
