Forget Vicki’s: the new food trend sweeping Milken is none other than Oreana Balls. Created by Ariana Hewitt ’12, Oreana Balls are Oreo truffles molded into small, chewy balls.

“People discovered my obsession with Oreos on Tiferet when I was given an Oreo-filled Mishloach Manot for Purim. Emily Plutsky (’12) can do a pretty great impression of me rejoicing over the Oreos,” Hewitt said.

She was thus given the name “Oreana”, and the rest was history.

The recipe for Oreanas, originally Oreo truffles, was introduced to Hewitt by her older brother. She later added a secret ingredient to the mix, creating the ultimate dessert.

When Hewitt brought a batch of “Oreanas” to school for a friend’s birthday, they instantly became a hit with her peers.

“When everyone fell in love with Oreanas, I had an epiphany: I could be making money off of these Oreo balls!” says Hewitt ’12.

Students at Milken have developed a craving for Oreanas and relish the days that Hewitt brings a batch to campus.

“Every time I have an Oreo ball, I feel as if I’ve died and gone to Oreana heaven,” swoons Corine Toren ’12.

Hewitt is currently selling a box of 15 Oreanas for $6 and a box of 30 for $11. To buy a box, contact Hewitt during school or through the official Facebook page for Oreanas: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Oreanas-Oreo-Balls
