Remember that one time Family Guy did a hilarious bit about the invention of the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup? Well, I think this combination of ingredients comes pretty damn close.

Cheesecake. Oreo. Cookie. It seems so obvious, yet so complex… How is this not already a thing? 100 years from now, scholars will look back at this moment and will commend the utter brilliance of such innovation in the culinary arts. In the history books, these Oreo cheesecake cookies along with a picture of my face will be featured alongside John Montagu and the invention of the sandwich in 1718 Britain.

Mark my words. Enjoy.
