Bill Kelly, the mastermind behind the product, described his thought process to the paper by saying that, well, he did exactly what you think he did to create it! He put a thin slice of pickle inside of a classic Oreo sandwich cookie. But then, he covered it in chocolate, because, in his words (and mine, tbh) “everything is better covered in chocolate!!!!!!”
Kelly told The Dayton Daily News that the taste of pickle is not “overpowering” and based on the photo, it does seem like the pickle slice is just small enough to add a bit of saltiness to the Oreo. Suddenly, I’m convinced this is a great idea.
Just consider that entire section my Christmas list!
