Double Stuff Oreo Lick Race: WIN a Flip 4GB HD Video Recorder!

As an American I grew up with Oreos and it's hard to believe they've only been in the UK for 3 years! Well not that hard to believe for me because I remember being crazy excited when I was able to find them in UK stores and I may or may have not squealed like a tweenage fan girl when I found Double Stuff Oreos at my grocery store and immediately tweeted a picture and then bought 4 packages just in case they weren't there next time. So I guess it's fair to say I freaking love Oreos. I regularly had Oreos and Oreo milkshakes throughout my pregnancy with Blondie Boy and while he hasn't tried them yet (they are egg free so he can eventually!) my Mom craved Oreos when pregnant with me so there must be a genetic link!

So when Oreo got in touch about their Double Stuff Oreo Lick Race I was really excited. Oreo is challenging families to upload their attempts to www.oreolickrace.co.uk and be in with a chance of winning a VIP family trip to Florida. As an added incentive, for every video race uploaded to the website the brand will be donating £1 to the children’s charity, KidsOut who work with children affected by domestic violence. I'm on the Board of Glasgow Women's Aide so I know how much these children need this kind of service.


Entering is easy:

Using a glass of milk and an Oreo cookie, the Lick Race gets two family members competing to finish their Oreo first by following these six, simple steps:

Twist. Lick. Show. Dunk. Eat. Drink. 


First you twist, then you lick the creme filling, then once you have shown the “clean” cookie to your opponent, you dunk it in cold milk. Next you eat the cookie and finally, you drink your milk.


Upload your video before July 31st for a chance to win or if you'd rather be a spectator you can take your chance and enter for daily prizes like a Nintendo Wii just by watching!


I'm going out with some of my friends tomorrow and I'm going to have her 6 year old challenge me since Blondie Boy is still a bit too small. No offense to Aedan but I'm pretty sure I have this race all locked up! Who will you race against?

To help you make a video of your race to prove your are the UK's "Most Entertaining Lick Racers" I have an Oreo goodie box with everything you'll need including: Oreos, two rainbow glasses, badges and (wait for it) A FLIP 4GB HD VIDEO CAMERA (with tripod)!

To enter:
Follow my Blog publicly (link on right sidebar) and comment how you eat your Oreos! Do you eat it whole, cream first, dunk or something else? (mandatory)

How do you eat your Oreos?

Melaina25 said...

I want some cheesecake bites. Stat.

Melaina25 said...

Oh, frick! I eat them whole. Pulling them apart is too futzy for me. I like to dunk them in soy milk, but I'll just down a whole sleeve without it if I have to. No problem!

Melaina25 said...

Have you ever made Oreo Truffles? One word: AMAZEBALLS.

Melaina25 said...

I eat mine slowly and carefully... Kyd just shoves it in... and the Hoff licks it out... make of that what you will!!

Melaina25 said...

I have Tweeted @Baillie_MyLife

Melaina25 said...

And I am also a fan of the double creams.... And have checked out the Oreo FB By Alice Guru Baillie... (don't ask the Guru was a dare that has stuck...)

Melaina25 said...

I twist off and eat half the cookie dipped in milk and then eat off the half the cream, repeat the dunking with the other cookie half and finish with the other half of the cream. How do you like them apples?

Melaina25 said...

What recipe would you try to make with them?

Melaina25 said...

Well we already do the Milkshake so I'm going to pick that (also good with Baileys)... But We have sort of made our own 'Oreo Bomb' It's a little bit naughty and a lot bit nice... we've just made oreo muffins for the sports Day  picnic tomorrow.... I like to experiment lol

Melaina25 said...

Biscuit!  It's a freaking cookie!  
I too love Oreos and my mom ate a bag, the American size, not the lame British size the night I was born.  

Melaina25 said...

I forgot to mention HOW I eat my Oreos.  To be honest it depends.  Sometimes I eat them whole, then I will eat the next one by pulling it apart and linking the cream.  I don't like to tie myself down to one eating option.  

Melaina25 said...

My kiddo loves Oreo's. Would it be bad if I admitted that I would love to just leave him alone with the packet and have half an hour of peace? We all twist it, eat the middle and then the biscuits, and then down the milk... mmmm Oreos. Oh, and I alreday follow.

Melaina25 said...

Oh I totally call it a cookie; biscuits are delicious but something sausage is served on :)

Melaina25 said...

I tweeted too.

Melaina25 said...

OMG! I just went onto the Oreo FB page and they have a recipe for Oreo Milkshakes. Guess I will be making a trip to Tesco tomorrow for Oreo's.

Melaina25 said...

I often (read EVERY DAY) had Oreo milkshakes when I was pregnant with Blondie Boy :)

Oreo Cheesecake Bites - I love Oreo's and I love cheesecake....NOM NOM!

Melaina25 said...

You HAVE to try Oreo Truffles then. They are AMAZING!

Melaina25 said...

An Oreo has to be soaked in milk before I can fully enjoy it. There is nothing like dunking a whole Oreo in cold milk. I also love to use Oreos in recipes, but let's face it, it's easier to just stand in the kitchen, hovering over a glass of milk and a stack of cookies.

Melaina25 said...

Just checked out Oreo's facebook page. I love the idea of Oreo cheesecake bites. I've used Oreos as the base to a cheesecake (with all the cream scrapped out and the chocolate cookies crushed) but these bites seem easier and also more appropriate to eat yourself! There's something not quite comfortable about digging into a whole cheesecake on your own.

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

I follow your blog on GFC (Emma Clarke).
When I'm not breaking the Oreo sandwich in two, licking each side of the cookie clean, then ramming the two leftover pieces into my greedy fat gob, I'm breaking Oreos onto vanilla ice cream and enjoying them that way!

Melaina25 said...

Blondie Boy has broken into my Oreo stash not once, but TWICE today!

If you are doing the Great Lick Race scraping with your teeth is cheating :)
