What you’re about to watch is the Watermelon Oreo taste test done by some of the staff around the office, and we’re even giving you a chance to win a pack of your own!

When Nabisco came out with the announcement that they were releasing watermelon flavored Oreos for the summer, we were skeptical. They sounded terrible, but in keeping an open mind we decided to try them.  A huge obstacle stood in our way – they’re only available at Target, only for a limited time, and they’re not being sold in Wichita Falls.

As luck would have it I was traveling to North Dakota for a few days, which took me past a number of Target stores in the Midwest. I made a couple of stops with no luck before I got smart and started calling ahead, only to find that they seemed to be sold out everywhere. At long last, in Bismarck, North Dakota, I was able to find the cookies.

My husband and I immediately ripped open a bag to try them out, and we were pleasantly surprised by them. Instead of being nasty like we anticipated, they were actually pretty tasty. That’s when I contacted Aaron Galloway, Digital Managing Editor at Townsquare Media in Wichita Falls, and a plan was hatched.


In addition to giving away three packages on the air next week (August 5, 6, and 7), we’re giving you a chance to win one of two packs by commenting on this video in the comments section below, and two winners will be chosen at random. The contest will end at 4:00pm Central Time on Wednesday, August 7.

UPDATED: Congratulations to Paul Reyes and Siri Hairell, who both won a pack of Oreos! Thanks for the comments, everyone!
