Mindy Kaling taste-tests Oreos, seems to prefer the terribly ratio’d Double Stuff Oreos

mindy oreo

A few days ago, it was National Oreo Day, which is not really a thing, is it? I mean, corporate brands don’t get their own nationally recognized days, right? In this house we do not celebrate Facebook Day or Goldfish Cracker Day (mostly because every day is Goldfish Cracker Day). But Mindy Kaling decided to celebrate National Oreo Day by… taste-testing some Oreos. This video is not great, mostly because I really wanted to hear her thoughts on all of the different flavors of Oreos these days and she didn’t really give us that content. It’s mostly just Mindy looking cute while eating Oreos, with no rhyme or reason. She claims this wasn’t a spon-con post, and she just loves Oreos. I know she loves junk food – she’s apparently addicted to McDonald’s too. So pretend taste-testing Oreos seems in her wheelhouse.

Personally, I have to really be in the mood for Oreos, and I just can’t handle the Double Stuff kind. I need a better cookie-to-stuff ratio, so when I am in the mood, I go for the Oreo Thins. Those are the perfect amount of stuff-to-cookie. Try the mint or the Oreo Thin Goldens. You’ll thank me.

Meanwhile, Mindy probably did this Oreo stunt as a way to get people talking about her new movie, Late Night, which she wrote and stars in (she’s a producer on it too). The first trailer was released this week and I’m happy about it! The film premiered at Sundance this year and there was a bidding war, and Amazon ended up buying it for $13 million, which is one of the biggest purchases to ever come out of Sundance. The film stars Emma Thompson as a grumpy David Letterman-type late night talk show host who seems out of touch with the modern late-night sensibility. Her character hires Mindy Kaling’s character to add some diversity to the all-white, all-bro writers room. Shenanigans and teachable moments ensue. Here’s the trailer:

I bet Emma Thompson and Mindy had a great time working together. I actually think Mindy is an underrated actress, although (obviously) her greatest strength is as a writer. I’m interested in this, and it was extremely well-received at Sundance, so fingers crossed.

    I love Mindy

  2. Bryn says:

    When I was a kid, I would take two double stuff Oreos and make quadruple stuffed lol. I loved it, now as an adult I can’t even eat two regular Oreos before tapping out. So sweet

  3. HeyThere! says:

    The Mindy Project was one of my favorite shows! I always love what she’s wearing, and she’s always one of the best dressed in the room, in my opinion. She’s very talented and deserves alllll the success!!

  4. Renee says:

    Double Stuff are the best!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Yes, this is the truth! I adore Double Stuff…but I haven’t had one in many years. I wish you could get just a package of 4 of them or something, and not dozens!

    • Sparkly says:

      I know! I thought it was a universal truth.

      The movie looks fun.

  5. lucy2 says:

    Not a sponsored post, but I bet they send her some free Oreos!
    Looking forward to her movie.

  6. Lola says:

    Love love oreos and can eat a whole line with milk in one sitting, but double stuff are a crime against palates.

  7. me says:

    To me, Oreos just don’t taste as good as they used to.

  8. Kitten says:

    Don’t yell at me please but I think the work Mindy’s had done on her face looks really good. She still retained the natural cuteness/character but her face just looks more balanced.

    Anyway, I love her and only want good tings for her but Oreos are gross. Thin mints on the other hand are incredible.

    • tcbc says:

      See, that’s interesting because I think it looks awful, like an overinflated balloon.

      • Kitten says:

        Really? I mean, she’s always had a round face but now I think her face looks more defined. Oh well. I guess I’ll sit in the corner. She was beautiful before BTW–I just think that the small changes she’s made are good ones.

      • Ramona Q. says:

        She is Kim K. level frozen on either side of her nose in that Late Night trailer, and in Ocean’s 8. She’s in her 30s and her face is jacked – it’s sad and really distracting.

    • Veronica S. says:

      I admit I like Oreos (the chocolate ones – everything vanilla save for the lemon is gross), but I can also tell you as a fellow thin mints lover that mint Oreos are almost the exact same taste as the Girls Scout cookie. *Especially* if you get the thin cookie version in Oreos that I’m 100% convinced is meant to make you think of them.

      • Kitten says:

        I just googled “thin oreos” because I’d never heard of them. I will definitely check them out. They seem more my speed in terms of cookies because I like REALLY crisp and crunchy.

        And now I want cookies 🙁

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I think her make-up has also gotten way better. When she first became a celeb, they put her in a lot of pastel eye shadow and foundations that didn’t match her undertones. Now they have her in a much better foundation match that lets her beautiful skin shine through. I’m so glad make-up lines have become more inclusive.

      She’s definitely had her lips done and probably botox, but other than that I can’t quite tell what procedures she’s had.

  9. Lynnie says:

    I blame this on growing up in a big and tall family and regularly getting family sized meals served to me as regular sized portions lol, but I looooooove double stuffed Oreos. I can eat half a family sized pack in one sitting (terrible Ik). I read somewhere that Oreos could be as addictive as crack so I also blame that as well 😂

  10. BB says:

    Before I even saw the trailer I knew she’d have a white love interest, per usual, and what do you know! She does.

    • AMAyson1977 says:

      She wrote it for herself and produced it and has indicated in interviews before that her romantic “type” or preference is white guys. I don’t think this is a case of Hollywood putting restrictions on her love interest but rather is Mindy portraying a sort-of fictionalized version of herself (comedy writer, but on a late-night show instead of a sitcom).

  11. Jb says:

    I tend to think she basically plays the same character in every movie I’ve seen her in but agreed she’s a far better writer than actor. I hope she stops messing with her face…her face is always slightly different from the year before, like she keeps tweaking it

  12. DiegoInSF says:

    Did you guys cover her recent defense of Aziz Ansari? She’s trash!

    • Jb says:

      I did! I was hoping Celebitchy would cover it…I understand not criticizing a woman for a mans mistake but yea that left me disappointed in her. Also watching old episodes of the mindy project and I saw how almost ALL the young female costars were written off, and obviously Mindy was the creator/main writer soooo like WTF? I’m beginning to think Mindy is very pro woman when the woman in question is mindy or someone she likes/knows.

  13. sequinedheart says:

    I noticed in the video she says “we bought …..for my daughter” WHO IS WE? Can she and BJ Novak just acknowledge they are a couple/he’s the father and be done with it?

  14. everlyB says:

    She’s lighter and skinnier. That was a good move to show off her new face and physique in a harmless/cute video, well played!

  15. mx says:

    Double Stuffed Oreos are my jam. I eat the filling first, then let the cookies soften up in milk before I eat those too.

  16. Ann says:

    Those thin oreos with the mint stuffing popped in the freezer rock my world. And I love Mindy! This movie looks really good.

  17. it’s such a shame what’s she’s done to her face. Her smile looks like a grimace and her lips are massive and overdone.

    • Bella Bella says:

      I liked original Mindy too so much better. She was unique looking. Why her friends didn’t stop her from whatever she did… Big sigh.

  18. paranormalgirl says:

    Thin Salted Caramels. Need some right now.

  19. Heat says:

    Mindy did test and comment on all of them individually on her Insta stories, but they’re gone now because it was a couple of days ago. Her fave was the Most Stuff, and Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie was her runner up. They were really cute vids, and I wonder if she might be testing the waters for a lifestyle or cook book? She’s done some cooking and book recos for Kit lately.

    Kaiser, you need to try the Pistachio Oreo Thins. You can thank me later.

    the oreo thin coconut is delicious!
