I'm a person who tries everything once before deciding if I like it or not. When I was little, I ate one single piece of calamari every time my parents ordered it to train myself to enjoy it and now I'm obsessed. All of that is to say I love food and will try anything I see on the internet that seems mildly appetizing, which is why I tried out the web's most recent weird food combination so you don't have to: Oreos and salsa.
You see, a couple weeks back I tried out mustard with watermelon after the food combo went viral on TikTok and...I didn't hate it. So when I saw Totally the Bomb round up several photos of people dunking milk's favorite cookie into their favorite chunky salsa I knew I had to try it out for myself. There's a chance the photos of salsa and Oreos together were all part of some meme-related conspiracy, but I still had to see if there was any merit to this combo.
As someone who loves anything that is both sweet and savory I was expecting a satisfying flavor profile. This may not come as a shock to any of you but salsa and Oreos totally missed the mark. Honestly...it sort of just tasted like wet Oreos and not in the good, dipped-in-milk kind of way. Since a lot of jarred salsas are sweeter than they are salty or savory, it didn't contrast the salty sweetness of the Oreo enough. To be candid: It tasted musty, there's no other way to describe it. If I was on a deserted island with nothing to eat besides Oreos with salsa on top I'd try to scavenge for food before eventually succumbing to the elements.
So take it from me, dear reader: Enjoy your Oreos with milk and save the salsa for your tortilla chips, as nature intended. And if you choose violence today and try out an Oreo cookie dipped in salsa don't you dare say I didn't warn you. You did this to yourself.
