Oreos have Gameday Style

It's that time of year when national food companies shape some of their products into footballs. My personal favorite that I stock up on is the football Oreo.

The Oreo website,, doesn't have the football 
Oreos in their list of 54 (yes!) different Oreo products, but here it the flesh:
Everybody's All-American, the football Oreo

Thank you to Nabisco for making a product tailgate stylish enough to simply buy at the store, throw it into the tailgate bins and go.  But wait.  If that isn't enough work for you, Nabisco has a recipe on their website for football Oreo cookie balls.  
And you can use any shaped Oreo for these:

Here is another version, beautifully done by Bakerella:

Bakerella calls them Oreo truffles.  Click here for the the how-tos.  
There are lots of fun pictures, like this,  included:

 I am quite positive your guests will gobble up your Oreo truffles whether shaped as a football or a "footblob", so footblobs are definitely not a problem.  However, if you just happen to eat all of the truffle mixture straight out of the bowl, a package of football Oreos will ensure that you have something football-shaped to eat at your tailgate.
