Oreo Cookies

Recommended Posts

These...and the hot and spicy cinnamon thins were on sale.  I couldn't bring myself to buy the cinnamon...

 

These are darn good with a  cup of coffee.

I am personally against the Oreo Thins.

I mean, it's less Oreos but for about the same price, right?

Just doesn't make sense to me. It's like those new candy bars where the maker has created "air bubbles" in the candy for a "lighter" bar. Oh, you mean you're using less chocolate yet charging me the same price as the old version of your candy bar?

It ain't right, man. ¬¬ xD

Interesting. I am not generally a big fan of Oreos altogether, but I love the Oreo Thins. If I buy a pack I am doomed, so I just stay away. I love thin crisp cookies, and the Oreo Thins have a great texture. You are right, of course, that it's less Oreos for the same price. But it's better Oreos!! 9_9

I like the thins, specifically the lemon ones. Like @cakewalk, I don't often buy a package, because I'm going to sit down and eat the entire thing, because, you know, they're thin and crisp and light.

 

Speaking of cinnamon-y things....my daughter came in last night with a bag of soft peppermint stick candy, except for instead of peppermint, it was cinnamon. "Red hots" on steroids! I could only manage half a stick. Would be marvelous in hot cider.

I actually prefer the Oreo Thins because I like the chocolate better than the filling.  I know they cost the same but I think they're better without as much of the white stuff.  They should have priced them less just because it's insulting to do otherwise.

My wife is a HUGE fan of the original Oreo.  This may be blasphemy, but I prefer the peanut butter ones.  At least there isn't a fight over them on the home front. :D

"Oreo Is Unleashing 5 New Flavors and We Can't Wait"

Quote

The flavors were announced at the Sweets and Snacks Expo in Chicago, and pictures were quickly spread by the Instagram account @junkbanter. Here's the full list of what we have to look forward to: Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, Pistachio Thins, Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake, Rocky Road, and Peppermint Bark.

But be warned, only Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie and Pistachio Thins are here to stay. The other three are limited releases.

Today the local Acme had the Oreo pistacchio thins which I had everything intention of buying until I read the ingredients list. There are no pistachios involved in the making of  pistacchio thins so I didn't buy any.. There is green stuff between the two chocolate cookies. Artificial coloring and flavors were are in the ingredients, and no tree nut allergy warning.

I just bought some of those--haven't opened them yet.  I feel guilty if I have more than one package open at a time 🙃

They aren't bad.  They definitely have little pieces of puffed millet in them and that gives them a very popcorny taste.  Further tasting will be needed.

I passed them by, as well.

Yes, I believe so. I think I am well past the age where Pop Rocks held some sort of fascination for me. Yes, I'm old...xD

"Oreo’s New Cookie Is Better Than A Deep Fried Oreo"

Quote

...the cookie company's latest product launch is straight out of a page from Hostess' book. Oreo is bringing State Fair cookies - crunchy, coated cookie sandwiches - to the frozen aisle this summer, and they bear more than a passing resemblance to the Deep Fried Twinkies that hit freezer shelves in 2016.

 

Oreo's careful not to call these new cookies "deep-fried," but we can read the writing on the wall - or, uh, the coating on the cookie. The dessert looks battered and fried, just like the classic state fair dessert, and it comes in two variations: a traditional Oreo cookie with a chocolate coating and the same classic cookie with a vanilla coating.

Has anyone found them in their area? Hopefully, someone can take one for the team and report back.

My husband and child like trying the new Oreo flavors, so I bought the Firecracker ones and the Kettle Corn ones.  They didn't care for the firecracker ones At. All.  No flavor, no zing, nothing.  I myself tried the Kettle Corn ones because I am a popcorn fanatic and yeah, just one was enough.  It wasn't bad but if I'm going to have an Oreo, it better be worth the calories.....
