Mystery Oreo Cookies Taste Like What?

Please!  Please!  Please!  NO!  I'm not imitating James Brown, the late great godfather of soul.  But I am begging!  Please!  Oreos are as American as apple pie!  Per Wikipedia:
In the United States, they were sold for 25 cents a pound (453 g) in novelty cans with clear glass tops. The first Oreo was sold onMarch 6, 1912, to a grocer in Hoboken, New Jersey. The Oreo Biscuit was renamed in 1921, to "Oreo Sandwich." A new design for the cookie was introduced in 1924.

Please don't mess with Oreos!




During the year (2017), there was a controversy about rainbow Oreos.  I survived it.

Now Oreo reveals its mystery flavor and "many tweeted that the cookie tasted like Fruity Pebbles or orange creamsicle".  

WHAT??!  I object!

Whatever!  Forget about it!  ☺❤

People do have different tastes and there is lots of food diversity to go around the world ten times over.  As long as Oreos can be used for world peace, it's all good.

Foodie Friday ~ Sampling Fast Food World Cuisine is a Fun Do!

Found this site called Delhi-Fun-Dos. As you probably guessed by the name, it's about fun things you can do in Delhi. Well, I know that the likelihood that I will ever travel to India is somewhere on my life's timeline between “slim chance” and "never gonna happen!"
But we can all travel the world online via the worldwide web and so I visited Delhi and guess what I found?  Wendys!!

My behavior is so typical American.   Right?  Travel around the world and what do we look for when we land in another country?  Same thing we have back home.  Duh!
Not true of me.  I really do want to experience the life and culture of the people in a land different my own.  But as soon as I got to site I saw the article about Wendys.  Couldn't help it!  I was curious!
We only have a bazillion Wendys fast food restaurants in America but saw the link and had to take a peek!   I'm thinking:

Wendys is on a “Fun Do List” of things to do in Delhi?

So I read the article and now I'm upset! I'm upset because we don't Paneer delight in our Wendys restaurants here in Texas.

I think every once in a while, our restaurants should offer, even if for “for a limited time only”, a taste of a popular dish from another country.

It's a great way to encourage food diversity and an appreciation for world cuisine and global flavors.
What do you think?
Is this idea doable?

Sampling global flavors is undeniably a great fun do! :)

Foodie Friday : World Cuisine : Japan’s 10 weirdest ice cream flavors (Reblog)

ATTN Foodies and  food lovers. Check out this Top Ten List. Do you have a taste for something sweet, cold and delicious, yet strange and exotic or ... maybe just a little salty? Then you should probably be visiting an ice cream parlor in Japan. Have heard of sweet potato ice cream, which I thought was weird; but it's not on this list! Squid ink?? It's Number 8. Eh! It's soft serve! Worth a try! :)
