These sounds disgusting and I will absolutely go buy some later today to try them.

Business Insider tried to get its hand on a package to try some, but unfortunately, there's a catch — the Swedish fish oreos are only available at Kroger stores. The cookies are rolling out at Kroger stores nationwide this week.

It's real all right, real disgusting. I'm all for Swedish fish... but these taste like Swedish fish someone put in a sugar bath, left them out in the sun, then drank them through a straw. Even Swedish fish don't taste that much like Swedish fish

Next there will be sour belt flavor and goldfish Oreos and pineapple or something else gross. Actually pineapple would probably do well.

At least the original Oreo is always available while they experiment with all these weird flavors.

Swedish Fish do not have a chocolate coating....so it wouldn't taste like Swedish Fish. Swedish Fish are my all time favorite candy.....I'd rather just have them instead of a cookie that's supposed to be flavored like them....but, to each their own

Maybe I'm just an ignorant follower, but what exactly is a Swedish fish? Is it just a chewy candy in the shape of a fish, or something that tastes like a fish?

Gawker Media had a party last night and I’m very tired now. It’s hot as hell and blogging is hard and I just want these terrible-sounding Swedish fish Oreos. I like things that are bad and that’s just who I am, all right? I’m not in the office right now—it’s unclear if I’ll make it to the office today, to be perfectly honest with you— but bring me these godawful-sounding, trash, chemical-laden cookies and I’ll give you a tour or something. Maybe I’ll rain-check you on the tour, but, you know, it..

It's really true! These Oreos are only sold in Kroger stores, though one enterprising individual has already posted a bag on eBay, for anyone who lives too far from the Ohio-based supermarket chain. It features the brand's classic sandwich cookies, surrounding a fire engine-red creme filling that's supposed to taste like Swedish Fish. One can only assume that must mean waxy, with a hint of fruity flavoring that's something like cherry, lingonberry or postage stamp glue, depending on who you ask.

Lest you think the reviewer didn’t go into this culinary experiment with an open mind, he admits that, “I really wanted to like Swedish Fish Oreo, but the ‘crispy fruit medicine puree’ textural contrast is too much for even a quasi-licensed gummy-ologist. I thought dunking them might intensify the chocolate flavor, but I worried that dipping these bizarre things in milk might make the beverage renounce Oreo as its favorite cookie.

I tried them and definitely a miss for me. I think I like oreos so much I don't want anything to mess us that classic taste.

I do not like swedish fish so I would not even waste my time trying this concoction. Good luck to the trial and error crew out there.

We all love Oreos. It’s our favourite midnight munchie. We whisk it, bake it or just eat it as a whole but this new flavour might just leave you stunned. Swedish Fish Oreos are a thing now- no guys, it’s not a cruel joke. It’s actually happening.

According to The Impulsive Buy, which managed to nab a package at a Kroger supermarket, the bright red cream in the middle tastes exactly like the cherry gummy candy. The reviewer wasn't much impressed with the 'overpowering' cherry taste, though — which seemed to confirm the suspicions of internet skeptics.

I'm a true believer that going to see a summer blockbuster movie isn't complete without a box of chewy Swedish Fish and a handful of Oreos. So when the cookie giant announced its latest limited-edition flavor of Swedish Fish Oreos, I jumped at the chance to try them.
