I just saw the ad in today's newspaper: Oreo Fun Stix. They are basically Oreo pirouline/pirouette cookies. I thought they were clever not because they are Oreos, but rather because of the different color options. The chocolate is much browner than any pirouette I've seen, and the vanilla...well, plain white (without the chocolate flecks) is hard to come by. Plus of course they are not filled with hazelnut, for those with allergy considerations.

My only concern is that they are hollow, so getting them around your cake without breakage might be a nightmare. Anyway I just thought I'd share. I haven't bought any! http://www.nabiscoworld.com/oreo/funstix/

COOL I love oreos and those will work great with my oreo cake.

Here is also a recipe I found for Pirouette cookies. Haven't tried it yet but want to.

I used some this past weekend on a cake and they worked very good. A little flaky but not too bad. They tasted yummy! Especially with the buttercream incing.

yeah, i saw those. i did a pirouette cake last night. another thing is the pirouette can cost $5.48 at my walmart and there are 30 in the can. the oreo stix are $2.50 and 16 in the box, so depending on how many you need, the oreo stix are cheaper BUT, there are sooooo many broken stix, i needed about 52ish for a 6" cake, and the 1 can of pirouettes only had 19 unbroken full stix (had to have the uniform look) so ended up getting more cans icon_sad.gif just some numbers to think about!

I must say: I noticed literally just the other day, that the 99c store carries pirouline-type cookies...don't be afraid to check there. If I recall correctly, the containers are plastic so you can actually see if the cookies are broken thumbs_up.gif It was a normal sized container too, I'd say at least 20 cookies. Take a look! This was at the real "99c Only" store - I haven't looked at other dollar stores. FYI!

The Oreo Fun Stix are actually meant to be straws. They're hollow. The kids can sip their milk, get the Oreo taste, then eat the straw! Wish I was still a kid. icon_wink.gif

They are flakier than Pirouettes and tend to want to break a little easier, but still work well... I used them for the trunks of palm trees not long ago. Great dark color! They are not as hollow as they seem in pictures. The white coating pretty well covers as an inner lining.

Cereals made into "straws" like Fruit Loops and Cocoa Krispies are great as well!

These are really YUMMY! We buy them all the time. And for those of us that our watching our waistlines I think one pkg of 2 cookies is only 80 calories. Whoo! Hoo! icon_biggrin.gif I think they'd look great on a cake but like someone else mentioned they are a bit flaky.

Oh, and Aldi carries the most fabulous tasting Piroulines as well! They come many more to a can than the more expensive brand names, and have three different varieties.
