Post-Reunion Fried Oreo Withdrawal

Author: Stephanie Yee, C’08

My fifth reunion was a HUGE success! Now that it’s over, I keep thinking about is how much I want more fried Oreos. They are so delicious! The tasty treat brings back great memories of Spring Fling.

When I was waiting in line at the cookie tent, an alumnus standing in front of me was explaining the importance of fried Oreos to his guest. “They’re a Penn icon,” he said. “You aren’t a Penn student until you’ve tried one.” His guest hesitated, but agreed to try one.

I remember experiencing the same hesitation before trying my first fried Oreo during Spring Fling of freshman year. My upperclassmen friends insisted that they were delicious – how could they not be – they are Oreos encased in fried dough AKA delicious covered in delicious. I tried them, I loved them, and now I want some more.

I hope fried Oreos become a tradition at Alumni Weekend, so I can eat more when I attend my “sixth reunion” in 2014!

    I actually overheard an alumni father telling his 7 or 8 year old son that he’d never tried a fried Oreo. His son made a horrified face and said “… well, you haven’t lived.” It was so dramatic and hilarious.
