Yahoo Finance's Allie Canal joins the Live show to taste test the latest product mash-up from Mondelez between Ritz crackers and Oreo cookies.
DAVE BRIGGS: Speaking of food, we love our food crossovers, hybrids. And Ritz and Oreo, salty and sweet, seems like a match made in heaven.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Yeah, so this is a new announcement from Mondelez. We have Ritz-Oreo collab.
SEANA SMITH: Yum.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Here it is in all the glory. We see a little bit of breakage right there. But here we go, part Ritz, part Oreo cookie. If you want to get this, Thursday, you go on the website, Oreo.com/ritz. You can get a package for free, but you have to pay a shipping fee of $3.95, so not totally free.
SEANA SMITH: You're essentially paying for it.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: But very limited quantity here. I'm going to pass this around.
DAVE BRIGGS: About $1 per cracker.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Exactly, exactly.
DAVE BRIGGS: And what's the filling here? Is it standard Oreo filling?
ALEXANDRA CANAL: We have the standard Oreo filling, and then we have the standard Ritz filling. So that is the hope that this is a salty sweet collaboration.
SEANA SMITH: This is tough to eat on air.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Is it tough to eat on air? Maybe I'll break this.
SEANA SMITH: It's really good.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Is it good?
RACHELLE AKUFFO: But just so I know then, because you mentioned the two different kinds of fillings. Are both the Oreo filling and the cheese filling in the same cook-- in the same cookie or cracker? Or are they alternating it?
ALEXANDRA CANAL: It's in the same cracker. I really like it.
SEANA SMITH: Yeah, no, it's very, very good.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Wow. I'm surprised.
SEANA SMITH: I'm a big fan of both individually.
DAVE BRIGGS: It's a peanut butter filling.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: It's a peanut butter filling. And I am a Oreo purist, I would say. So I'm surprised I like this, but I do think the combination of salty and sweet is pretty good.
SEANA SMITH: It's very, very good.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Yeah.
SEANA SMITH: We could eat this whole thing. I'm surprised that there's only six per package.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Very, very limited amount. So if you're a fan of this, if you want to find this, you better be there 12:00 PM Eastern on the dot, on that website ready to order these, because judging from this, I don't think they have a lot.
DAVE BRIGGS: Not coming to stores, though, right?
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Not coming to stores.
DAVE BRIGGS: Just a special one-time mailing [INAUDIBLE].
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Yeah, and we're seeing that with a lot of brands. They're trying to create some noise, trying to create some buzz. I asked them if potentially, this could come out in stores. They said not right now. So maybe if this explodes on Thursday, maybe they'll [INAUDIBLE]
DAVE BRIGGS: So grade it. I'd go about a 6 and 1/2, 7.
SEANA SMITH: Really?
DAVE BRIGGS: I'm not overwhelmed.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: Wow.
SEANA SMITH: No, I'd do, like, 8.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: I think it's good.
SEANA SMITH: 8 and 1/2, 9.
ALEXANDRA CANAL: I agree. I agree with Seana.
RACHELLE AKUFFO: It's a good idea of making so few. It's essentially like having a pop-up shop, but it's free. It's online.
DAVE BRIGGS: It is a great idea.
