World-Class Athletes (& Shaquille O’Neal) Tout Tasty Triple Double Oreos

Make that the extremely high-calorie tasty Triple Double Oreos, which features layers of vanilla and chocolate cream generously slathered between three Oreo cookies. Yummy.

And of course, when you think about a treat that tops out at 100 calories with a whipping 4.5 grams of fat, the first thing that comes to mind are four athletes in peak physical condition, namely Serena Williams, Apolo Ohno, Eli Manning and Shaquille O’Neal. Actually, make that three athletes in peak physical condition along with Shaquille O’Neal. Hey, the guy can barely walk these days. The fearsome foursome are known as the Double Stuf Racing League (DSRL), a marketing gimmick we have touched on previously here at the Sportress, but the Triple Double Oreo changes the game entirely, as evidenced by this quote from Shaq (via the New York Daily News):

“Now that I am retired I can spend more time perfecting my twist, lick and dunk skills, and with an added layer of cream and a third cookie, it’s clear that I am going to need the practice,” said Shaquille O’Neal in a quote attributed to him in a press release. “I am obviously the dunking expert, but I am working with the rest of Team DSRL to figure out the best way to compete with the Triple Double cookie.

The above-mentioned press release can be found here and a video for your viewing enjoyment, as well as some additional promotional photos featuring the star athletes looking ridiculous in blue track suits, follows.

Wow. These four appear to be taking this Triple Double Oreo stuff pretty seriously. Myself? I’m just dying for a couple of those cookies and a tall glass of cold milk. That’s all.
