Here are the latest releases. According to the article I read the Ultimate Chocolate is a limited release and will go away, the Toffee Crunch is going to stay around.

I would like to try both of those!  Thanks for bringing to my attention!  As always, I'm suspicious of what manufacturers call "toffee".  Like "caramel" it is almost always wrong.

 

This thread makes me think of Toliver so much and miss him.

I had the same thought; I saw the title and immediately thought of Toliver.....

Yes, I thought of Toliver also when I spotted this article about Oreo's 110th birthday special release:

https://www.today.com/food/oreo-releasing-chocolate-confetti-cake-flavor-110th-birthday-t244753

 

I didn't realize the last Birthday Cake version had been to celebrate their century mark, but I enjoyed those. (As I recall, @rotuts thought them vile. 😉) Although, looking at the timing I have to think that when I tried them it was not for the 100 year birthday, regardless of what my linked article claims.

@Smithy 

 

I was never able to try them , as MarketBasket didn't carry them

 

I do like the regular filling in Oreos , and Hydrox ,  ( dont know if Hydrox still exists )

 

in moderation of course .  sometimes you just need a hit of artificial stabilizers ,

 

hoping for the best.  I have in the past scarped off any filling

 

both for Oreo's and hydro , and enjoyed the chocolate cookies

 

w ice cold milk  of course   Hydrox , back then , was better 

 

as I recall.

 

I do miss Tolivers enthusiasm for tracking all those oreo combos down

I bought both last night and prefer Ultimate Chocolate.  Nabisco tried with the toffee but didn't really succeed to my tastes.  You get a strong aroma of something toffee-ish as soon as the package is opened, but the toffee flavor isn't great, and these are too sweet for me.  Might buy Ultimate Chocolate again but probably not Toffee Crunch.

I found both the Toffee Crunch and the Birthday ones - the birthday ones have little sparkles on the outside and a layer of speckled white and plain chocolate fillings inside.  If I hadn't seen the outside I wouldn't have known these were any different from the usual Oreos.  The toffee ones, well... they're ok.  To me, these didn't taste like a Skor or Heath bar and no way would these be confused with a homemade toffee.  But dunk them in some tea or coffee and I'd eat them.  Still though, my all time favs are the Dark Chocolate ones.  Nothing will ever be as bad as the tiramisu ones.

How long have caramel coconut Oreos been available?  I had some of those a couple of weeks ago and thought they were pretty good.

 

@Toliver mentioned them in this post about 2 years ago.

There are some unfavorable comments that follow.   @Kim Shook commented on them again last year here.  

Maybe you've gotten a new and improved version?

LOL at Kim's comments.  Kim REALLY hated them.  I agree that the coconut flavor is very faint.  What I had is probably not new and improved.  Maybe I was just in the mood for fake maple flavor.  
 

FWIW, I don't buy a lot of Oreos, usually just to try the different flavors.  Even the ones I like, I tend not to buy again, so I probably won't be doing a second bag of Coconut Caramel to see if my sense of taste was off-kilter.

Lance Nekot cookies - lemon creme - were pretty good, if memory is correct. Haven't had them in years, though. I can imagine that the Oreo version is very sweet and lacking in lemon flavor.
