Food mashups and crazy food combinations seem to be the big trend right now, but how far is too far? Is there even such thing as too far?

First of all, let me just say I'm not knocking Oreo cookies in this "98 Seconds with Naomi Lynn" video. I love Oreo cookies. And I love crazy, bizarre, and unique flavor combinations, BUT... are we getting a little too crazy with these flavor mashups? I'll let you be the judge.

Oh and obviously it's not just Oreo cookies that are taking part in this huge trend of "interesting" food combinations, they just seem to be on the leading edge of it, so I'm going to focus on them.

Alright, so you've probably seen some of the Oreo cookie flavors that are anything but ordinary. Some of them sound really, REALLY good actually, like "Birthday Cake Oreo Cookies" which are made with golden cookies and have a birthday cake flavored creme between the cookies, or their "Cookie Dough Oreo Cookies," which I go on and on about in the video (at the top of this page). Strawberry creme, chocolate creme, mint creme, even lemon creme with golden cookies seems pretty normal. Especially since a lot of the food and snacks we have available have become some sort of "mashup." But then things started taking a crazy(ier) twist...

Have you seen or tried "Cinnamon Bun Oreo Cookies"? Or speaking of cinnamon, how about these guys:

You've probably seen the marshmallow peep cookies - They were a big deal around Easter. How about banana split, watermelon, or pumpkin spice? You can hear a few more unique Oreo flavors in the video (at the top of this page).

Again, I'm not knocking these flavor combinations or knocking Oreo for being a part of it, but the last two flavor combinations... Well, they've left me a little confused. Oreo released two new flavors of cookies just the other week:

Wasabi and hot chicken wing.

...What??

Yes. This is a real thing. Now you won't find them here, they debuted in China. But I'm sure if you really want to try them, you can order them online. This right here - These two flavors, have me asking, "Are we going too far with food mashups and flavor combinations?"

I'm sure there are people who can't wait to try these. I'm sure there are people who want nothing to do with these. Either way, there is no right or wrong answer - I just want to know what YOU think. Are we going too crazy with all these flavor combinations? Do you love them (even if there are a few flavors you'll never want to try)? Vote in our poll below and let us know where you stand on food mashups AND if you would be willing to try the two new Oreo flavors.
