Someone Please Tell Me These Oreo Flavors Are Real

Oreo loves to create new flavors that range from “OMG! Yas!” to “What were they thinking?” Here are a few flavors we wish Oreo would try to release.

Please? We’re begging you…

1. Guava Con Queso for everyone who understands how uh-may-zing guava is.

And for those who don’t because guava con queso pastelito is the best and we can only imagine how incredible it would taste sandwiched between two vanilla cookies?

2. Mexican Hot Chocolate because how amazing would it taste on an Oreo?

My mouth is already watering thinking about what it’ll taste like when I dunk it in milk. If Oreo can do Swedish Fish Oreos, why not Chocolate Abuelita?

3. Oreo, please give us a flan custard dream version of your cookie.

Do we really need to argue in favor of this flavor?

4. Cafe Con Leche would be the perfect pick-me-up for those rough mornings.

Consider this your breakfast, Oreo style.

5. Mango deserves more recognition than it already gets.

There are people that are bound to be huge fans of mango flavored Oreos. Can we get them with a sprinkle of Tajín?

6. One word: Churro.

Churros are already perfect because they are sweet, handheld, and fried. In a perfect world, Nabisco would have already harnessed this power and made millions.

7. Margarita because who isn’t craving one right now?

8. Gansito is so reminiscent of our childhood that it’s a crime to ignore.

Enough said.

9. Passion Fruit since we all know how passionate we are about food.

See what I did there?

10. A guacamole cookie would be as good as guac and chips.

It already comes with the crunch.

11. Piña Colada like every other dessert that has a piña colada flavor.

Just don’t get caught in the rain with these because they will fall apart.

12. Horchata as an Oreo would be an absolute dream.

Yes, please!

13. Tamal De Dulce because tamales are already a year-round food.

And I’m getting tired of eating it as… a tamal.

14. Tamarindo would give Oreos that kick they have been missing.

Everyone is suddenly calling it a super food so it only makes sense that it would reach this kind of use.

15. Tres Leches because, duh!

Mountain Dew Margaritas Are Apparently A Thing At Red Lobster Now?

We’ve seen all kinds of takes on the timeless classic that is a Margarita. From frozen Margaritas to ones with cranberry juice and dashes of blue curaçao and twists of basil and ginger beer we’ve literally seen it all. Or so we thought.

Recently, Red Lobster announced that they’re doing a Mountain Dew-take on the beloved and salty tequila cocktail.

Red Lobster’s DEW-Garita promises to set you aglow.

The drink is the first official Mountain Dew cocktail and of course, it is bright lime green. While the cocktail’s recipe is being kept strictly under wraps, like everything at Red Lobster’s, it’s supposed to pair “perfectly” with Red Lobster’s iconic Cheddar Bay Biscuits.

“Red Lobster is thrilled to work with PepsiCo, not only because it has a great portfolio of brands, but specifically because of the food and beverage innovation possibilities,” Nelson Griffin,the Senior Vice President and Chief Supply Chain Officer at Red Lobster said in a statement about the drink.

Red Lobster’s DEW-Garita is due to debut at Red Lobster locations nationwide in September and by the end of 2020.

The Margarita is an iconic Mexican drink related to a drink called Rhe Daisy.

The classic Tequila sour cocktail is one of the most beloved cocktails in the world. According to Wine Enthusiast “One story claims that the drink was created in 1938, as Mexican restaurant owner Carlos (Danny) Herrera mixed it for gorgeous Ziegfeld showgirl Marjorie King. Supposedly, Tequila was the only alcohol that King would abide, so Herrera added lime juice and salt.”

To make your own classic Margarita check out this recipe below

Ingredients

  • Coarse salt
  • Lime wedge
  • 2 ounces white Tequila
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce lime juice

Directions

Shake out coarse salt on a plate. Wet the rim of a glass by using the lime wedge. Press the rim of the glass in the plate of salt to coat. Add ice to the glass.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rest of the ingredients. Shake well, and pour into the prepared glass over ice.

Covid-19 has devastated millions of Americans with job loss. Unemployment skyrocketed as the federal government failed to create and execute a plan to combat the pandemic. El Pollo Loco is stepping up and giving our community a chance to keep business doors open and community members employed.

El Pollo Loco is giving Latina business owners in the greater Los Angeles area a lifeline in these uncertain times.

The Latino community is the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs and business owners in the U.S. According to a Stanford University study, Latino business owners grew 34 percent while every other demographic grew 1 percent over the last ten years.

However, Covid has changed things. Latina-owned business are some of the hardest hit and the sudden loss is impacting our community. According to the Pew Research Center, Latinas experienced a -21 percent change in small business ownership and jobs since the Covid downturn.

El Pollo Loco is offering $100,000 in grants to different Latina-owned businesses because of the pandemic.

The fast food chain has started a GoFundMe to keep the donations going. El Pollo Loco has already pledged $100,000 to help Latina small businesses and the GoFundMe promises to keep the donations flowing. For every $10,000 raised in the GoFundMe, El Pollo Loco will donate it to a Latina small business. The GoFundMe has raised over $100,000 at the time of this post.

#WeAllGrow Latina partnered with El Pollo Loco to give Latina business owners this lifeline.

#WeAllGrow Latina and El Pollo Loco are asking the Latino community to help find Latina small businesses that deserve the grants. Instead of making the decision themselves, #WeAllGrow Latina and El Pollo Loco want you to nominate your favorite Latina small business for the grant.

“This year has been unlike any other, leaving Latina-owned businesses disproportionately impacted,” Bernard Acoca, President and Chief Executive Officer of El Pollo Loco, said in a statement. “Given the critical role brands are expected to play during the pandemic and on the heels of Hispanic Heritage Month, we felt compelled to find a way to support the people and city we call home.”

In order to nominate a business, here is what you have to do.
