Cheeseburger Oreos Anyone?

by Brett M. Christensen

An image that has circulated via social media since 2015 has some hard-core Oreos fan salivating with excitement while others shudder with revulsion (not really).

The image depicts a packet of ‘Limited Edition Cheeseburger Oreos’, allegedly made with ground beef.

But, alas for more adventurous cookie lovers, Cheeseburger Oreos are not real and won’t be hitting supermarket shelves anytime soon. The image is just a prank. 

The image comes from a YouTube video – called Will It Cookie? – Cheeseburger Oreo – created by the crew at Reckless Eating, a YouTube Channel that invites viewers to watch ‘a bunch of friends eat weird stuff’ (see embedded video below).

Reckless Eating acknowledges the prank in a post on their Facebook Page:

Lots of people are linking me to the cheeseburger oreo picture floating around online. We know the person who made it and did it ourselves. The picture is of course fake lol.

The prank is similar to an earlier hoax image that supposedly depicted Fried Chicken Oreos.

Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
