Excellent, but ... Report this review

This isn't a perfect, 5-star trick because it's really a one-note effect that shouldn't be performed more than once or twice in front of the same audience (reasons follow). But it is a terrific, highly-recommended, 4-star-plus trick, primarily because it is easy to learn, it is great fun to perform, and it makes people smile. Everyone loves Oreos, and no one expects you to make the cream filling re-appear and expand after it has been removed from the cookie. BUT ... if you perform the trick in close quarters, you should anticipate that audience members will (1) ask/demand to EXAMINE (and perhaps eat) the cookie, or (2) REACH for the cookie while it's in your hands after you have performed the trick. I have performed this trick in front of kids (i.e., my pesky nieces and nephews) and friends (i.e., my adult, slightly inebriated dinner guests), and it produced a joyously baffled response ... but in both circumstances someone insisted upon seeing, holding, or eating "the cookie" after I performed the trick. Which led me to develop this work-around: Buy a bag of Oreo cookies and carefully create actual, "overstuffed" Oreo cookies that can be discreetly swapped for the gimmick after the trick has been performed. (One bag of Double Stuf Oreos yields about 20 "overstuffed" cookies. After you make the actual, "overstuffed" cookies, you can keep them in the freezer, to keep them fresh and available for future performances.) To avoid suspicion that a gimmick is involved, I now strongly believe that the trick's logical conclusion requires that "the cookie" be provided to an audience member after the trick has been performed. It really is the natural ending to an unusual and fun trick.7 of 8 magicians found this helpful.

It's such a magical moment. Just be sure that when you perform you begin by taking the cookie out of an Oreo box--that's what will really contextualize the whole trick--what takes it from being just a gag to an unforgettable moment.5 of 5 magicians found this helpful.

I don't like Oreos (let the bashing begin) but after learning this effect, Bizarro may have helped the Oreo company gain one more customer. To put it simply, I really love this effect! It's quick, simple to do, the basic effect is to the point, all while packing an incredible visual.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
Once you take it out of the packaging (neat little packaging, by the way) you immediately know the secret and can figure out how to perform it without even having to read the instructions. Albeit, I highly recommend reading the instructions and watching the video at Theory11.com because they all provide great performing tips. You are provided with two gimmicks so you can perform other different routines, and that's what's neat about this effect - you can come up with different routines that make this effect even more visual and incredible. A fellow magician below does make a good point, and maybe Bizarro can come out with an improved version in the future with other improvements on the gimmick: I wish the gimmick can be softer to make it easier to perform. The effect is already easy to perform but this improvement would be so helpful. Another neat thing about this effect is that spectators most likely won't ask to examine the gimmicked cookies. Oreos are very familiar to everyone, and because it's food, no one seems to think you're using fake, gimmicked cookies anyway. I've only performed this effect for a handful of close friends, and they never asked to examine the cookies. If you think you'd still worry about some spectators asking to examine the cookies, you can always pretend to lick the gimmicked cookies after you perform the effect. Spectators will most likely be reluctant to touch licked Oreos.
Despite how easy it is to perform this effect, I highly recommend giving it the practice it deserves. If sufficient practice isn't done the effect may look more like a gag than a miracle. I highly recommend getting this effect even if you don't like Oreos. I may just purchase another so I have a back up pair, or come up with different routines. This is my first Bizzaro effect, but definitely not my last. Bizzaro, if you're reading this: thank you! You are creative to say the least!

This is an absolute awesome trick! A must have! Easy to master, easy to perform, great for possibly comedy magicians!?1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
One problem that could be fixed is if the gimmick was a little softer. Otherwise brilliant trick, great effect, I highly recommend it.

This is a brilliant trick, simple and memorable. It leaves a ton of room for innovation and creativity, you can easily make it yours.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
For me, the real brilliance is that cards and coins = magic tricks, but cookies = food. You're starting with something Jungian here, something every person remembers from their youth, and you can completely shift their expectations.
I think there's a ton to be done here with packages of cookies and with marshmallows. Have fun and use it wisely. This is now officially a classic, one for the ages.
PS it's worth twice what it costs. Beautifully made.

This is definitely one I had to get after watching it. The thing I love about it is you can come up with different tricks with these two gimmicks, and you have a chance to really make it your own. Whenever I do this I get the best reactions. Definitely a must get.

Visual, but you need to keep it safe. Report this review

It is a great effect, it is visual as it gets. I gave it four stars because of the fact it gets dirty really easy and it is hard to clean. It doesn't come with a DVD, but it gives you a link to theory 11. I would of preferred a DVD, but you don't always win.
