Revivals of your favorite '90s obsessions seem to come several times a week these days, from Animaniacs to Clearly Canadian to Twin Peaks, and today we have one more to add to the list, if your taste buds are ready for it: the classic Oreo cereal -- Oreo O's -- is returning to the shelves.
There's no way you don't remember Oreo O's, which launched in 1998 and ran strong through 2007. They were shaped like tiny donuts and packed full of Oreo cookie bits and coated with the Oreo creme filling. They were good straight out of the box and irresistible when you added milk. Unlike other, lesser cereals, getting them just a little too soggy actually yielded a pleasant, earthy texture that was still fun to chew through, thanks to their cookie roots. Their performance as a childhood treat utterly embarrassed their chocolate chip counterpart, General Mills' Cookie Crisp, because there was simply no comparison. Oreo O's couldn't be matched, so much so that years later, the Internet campaigned for its revival.
