Random Food Report: All About Oreos

"Mimicry is an art from in processed foods, and the makers of Oreo cookies have outdone themselves with their latest attempt to jazz up their icon: the Cookie Dough Oreo," the New York Times reports.

"The fun in dissecting this marvel of food engineering begins right on the front of the package, which sports pictures of real-looking cookie dough and chocolate chips, though neither is found inside.

"Instead, this newest version of the Oreo draws on a mix of extra sugar, precision chemistry and a marketing maneuver that industry insiders call 'permission' to evoke the mere impression of cookie dough."

Permission not granted; we want the real thing.

Brat Pack
"Johnsonville said Wednesday that it has opened an innovation center in Chicago," the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

"The facility will focus on the research and development of new products."

Like an Oreo brat?

Frankly Speaking
"The Ball Park brand has launched a new premium hot dog and has teamed with celebrity chef Rachael Ray to promote the product," Meat & Poultry reports.

Okay, that's two strikes.

Making Sense Of McDonald's
"The warm scent of freshly baked Petite Pastries is now wafting through San Diego County McDonald's restaurants," McDonald's says.

Can a scent be warm?

Pop it, top it.

Katz Nip
"The owners of New York City's iconic Katz's Delicatessen filed a lawsuit on Wednesday against the operators of local food trucks named Katz & Dogz, claiming the trucks are a blatant attempt to dupe consumers," Reuters reports.

"Customers are likely to assume that the trucks, which sell the same Jewish-style fare, and the famed deli are somehow affiliated, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan."

That sounds like a stretch.

"Katz & Dogz also sells a 'Reuben Orgasm,' which the lawsuit says could be a reference to a famous scene in the popular 1989 movie When Harry Met Sally that was shot at Katz's."
