Once again, tasty treats that would sell like crazy in the US are being sold elsewhere. This time it’s McDonald’s launching an entire Oreo McCafe menu in Hong Kong. The list of stuff that we probably won’t be tasting any time soon includes Oreo Tiramisu, Oreo Tiramisu Latte, Iced Oreoccino and a Chocolate Cheese Tart that Brand Eating describes as “a baked Oreo tart shell filled with melted chocolate and cream cheese”.

It will be available for a limited time in Hong Kong, but here’s hoping that Oreo learns something from the Oreo Creme Egg situation and brings this menu to the states.
