Finally, we can give our friends and family what they actually want for Christmas this year: cookies.

Sure, we suppose it’s always been possible to give the gift of chocolate wafer sandwich cookies, but handing over a regular box of Oreos lacks a certain, shall we say, gravitas.

But not anymore. This holiday season, the company has debuted “Oreo colorfilled” — a shiny, colorful new packaging that you can customize for the special cookie-lovers in your life.

Starting on Monday, if you head to the Oreo website, you can choose between two decidedly different packaging templates.



From there, you get to choose your own color scheme (set to either “easy mode” or “pro mode,” depending on your coloring skill level), then write whatever message you like.

There are only a limited number of packages available, so get one before it’s too late and you have to think of an actual gift to give your little brother.

Now if only we could fill the box with whatever crazy new Oreo flavor we wanted, that would be truly customizable.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

Cute idea but until they return all of the jobs they sent to Mexico, won’t be buying.
