Whenever eat everything, better check it first, last Two-Day XD was reading book on bed, suddenly she heard noisy in the room.

Her roommate just bought OREO biscuit with chocolate taste from 7-11, before she bite it, she saw something strange in the middle cream, got many small holes with white color, she thought it's impossible that OREO got new product with new taste? Is it the sugar? But how come it's looked like this?

Then she took the pack...

It's correct, chocolate taste, not white chocolate and there's no fruit added in it.

Expired? Still long time.

The pack still very good . . .

Is it possible, the look is awful but actually the taste is yummy?

Finally she opened the biscuit. (Sorry for my trembling hand) . . .

Full of white small holes, look like the spoiled eggs as maggot's nest, so disgusting... luckily my friend's eyesight is sharp, how if she has bite it?

Then we investigate via internet.

OMG... actually there's victim on January, and after passing 1/2 year, we still find same product?

Later, at midnight my friend bring 2 biscuit along with its pack return to the 7-11 shop. But the white spots have disappear, it's been dissolved into the cream.

Quickly, my friend opened the pack and took out another 1 biscuit again, opened and there's full of that disgusting thing.

Luckily the shop staff was willing to give the money back, but don't know when the goods will be wiped out from their rack (maybe the staff who in charge in the midnight shift are busier).

He gave us the reason is: the goods are import product, probably there's problem during the process of shipment.

OMG, one of the giant companies with the huge advertisement, why such problem can happens?

How is the OREO production company? Last 1/2 year the same problem has happened. There's no reason for them to not improving the quality of their products?

For all friend who like to consume OREO biscuit, before bite it, hope to open your eyes widely to see beforehand.
