Oreo’s New $20 Music Player Is Actually Kind of Delightful
If you’ve ever been tempted to wrap up a package of Oreos, slap it with a sparkly bow, and call it a holiday present for the biggest chocolate sandwich cookie lover in your life, this year that’s finally socially acceptable.
The omniscient powers that be at Mondelez have concocted a new (very special) package of Oreos meant to give as a gift. Presenting … the Oreo Music Box!
Buy: Oreo Music Box, $20
As you can see, this is not your average package of Oreos. This is a limited-edition tin that includes a package of White Fudge Oreos, a personal-sized package of regular Oreos, three personal-sized packs of Oreo Thins, AND a teeny, tiny turntable that actually plays music when you put a cookie on it.
See the spot where a little record is supposed to go? That’s where you put Milk’s Favorite Cookie — except I recommend that you skip the milk (for obvious reasons).
The best part? Every time that you take a bite of the cookie, the jingle changes. You can even record your own voice and play that if you dare. Note: I totally volunteer to DJ if that means I get to eat Oreos all night.
I had more fun with this contraption than I care to admit. As you can see, I tried it out with various other, non-Oreo snacks and learned that it works with those too — jellybeans included! I highly recommend this as an actual gift, a White Elephant surprise, or even as a slightly tongue-in-cheek gift idea for that one hipster friend who insists on listening to vinyl exclusively.
What do you think? Does the world need an Oreo record player or no?
