Oreo Pizza Tops List of Most Memorable Products of 2007

Most Memorable New Products of 2007 Are Ironic

Five out of 10 products in the Sixth Annual Most Memorable New Products Launch Survey are related to food and health. Most notably:

#4 Domino's Oreo Dessert Pizza (1/8 Pizza has 120 calories)
#5 alli Weight Loss Capsules
#6 Oreo Cakesters (250 calories for 2 cakes)
#7 Diet Coke Plus
#8 Subway FreshFit Meals

Does anyone else see the irony in this? As Americans we literally want to have our cake and eat it too. The combination of high calorie desserts with low-calorie quick fixes and a diet pill seems to summarize our issues with getting healthy. What do you guys think about this? I know you have a lot to say so share your thoughts in the comments section below.

I tried the cakesters and once was enough. Gross, fluffy fatty gross tasting not-cake-not cookie things with yucky filling int he middle. not even my toddler liked them. im still not convince of Alli because of the whole similarity to Olestra and the anal leakage effects eewww! Diet Coke plus was just ok and I dont care about minerals when I'm consuming vacuuos amounts of carbonic acid. the subway fresh fit thing was a good idea but they could have come up with better toddler food. no small child I know would touch anything but yogurt. the oreo pizza just seemd gross so I never even tried that. i liked the commericials though.

We definitely want to have our cake and eat it too. That's why diet pills are so popular with people. They figure that if they take a pill, they can still eat what they want (usually things like Oreo Cakesters, lol) and not work out and still lose weight. It's not that simple...to lose weight for good, you have to change what you eat and work out a bit more.

It's a statement about the innate contradiction of the American relationship with food, health, and body image... it's just unhealthy. Although I'm not sure why anyone would want either of the Oreo products - the mere idea makes me slightly queasy. (I'm drinking white tea, but I don't think that's the cause...)

I find the look of the Oreo Cakesters to be really unappetizing. I probably would try the Oreo Dominoes pizza if I was feeling brave enough.I'm a sucker for the Subway Fresh Fit meal, though, which I suppose is a good thing.

I don't think they're necessarily memorable because people want them, they're memorable because they're extreme.

I haven't touched any of those new Oreo things! I know if I will, I will like them and then be addicted!

I was walking down the street one day last week and suddenly got a desire to try an Oreo Cakester then I thought about it further I realized that I wanted to throw up. Thus the desire for something guaranteed to make me have dumping syndrome - I was getting a touch of the stomach flu.
