“Down in New Orleans, where the blues was born. It takes a cool cat to blow a horn. On LaSalle and Rampart Street, the combo’s there with a mambo beat. The Mardi Gras mambo, mambo, mambo. Party Gras mambo, mambo, mambo. Mardi Gras mambo, ooh. Down in New Orleans…” – Mardi Gras Mambo
Now when I hear the Mardi Gras Mambo, I think of Mardi Gras, and of course King Cake. Since I was born and raised in Baton Rouge, LA, only a one hour drive away from New Orleans, I grew up going to Mardi Gras Parades and eating King Cake. I enjoy eating King Cake because it is such a sweet treat. Recently I was challenged by OREO as part of the “My OREO Creation Contest” to come up with my own unique flavor. So I decided to combine my love for King Cakes and OREO’s into one bite of deliciousness. The King Cake OREO would be a Cinnamon cookie on the outside, and a creamy cream cheese flavored inside; including layers of purple, gold, and green in honor of Mardi Gras’ colors.
To check out some of the OREO flavors that are currently available, I went to my local Walmart. They have so many flavors including OREO Mint Cookie and OREO Jelly Donut Cookie too. They even make candy bars now! I picked up a package of OREO Cookies and a package of OREO Birthday Cake Cookies since it was my birthday last month. I enjoyed getting to share them with my family, and to spread the word about the My OREO Creation Contest.
You can purchase a variety of different OREO flavors available at Walmart and submit your idea for the My OREO Creation contest. You could win a trip to NYC and see your creation come to life! How cool is that?
So now the most important question is, what awesome flavor can you come up with!? Don’t forget to enter!
