There's nothing quite like a classic Oreo cookie, but boy do they seem to have fun coming up with new flavors, haha. You may have heard of the new Marshmallow Crispy and Cookie Dough Oreos starting a few weeks ago, when initial reviews were starting to pop up online.
I went to Target the week of the official release date for these, and didn't have to look too hard for them - they were prominently displayed by the entrance, haha. I happily picked up both and managed to wait until after work to try them out.
As you can see, there's plenty of little bits inside both creme sections, which makes them look very different from regular Oreos right off the bat. The Marshmallow Crispy is very tasty, especially if you're a fan of the rice treats that these are not-so-secretly named after, haha. I am already a fan of Golden Oreos (the vanilla ones), so I'm sure that helped too.
The Cookie Dough Oreos unfortunately didn't fare as well for me. I didn't think anything cookie dough could go wrong, but unfortunately these didn't really taste much like cookie dough at all. In fact, these have an extremely strong and sort of strange coffee taste - which seems to be the general consensus among other online reviewers as well. Now don't get me wrong, I love coffee, but it's a little odd to have a super sugary coffee taste overpowering any cookie dough taste. These may fare well broken up and mixed into brownies, which I might try out later on. Either way, I'm glad that I found these and tried them out, I'm a huge fan of Oreos and I always enjoy trying the new flavors!
Incidentally, I received a package of the Marshmallow Crispy Oreos from a Twitter contest held by Oreo during the Grammys a few days after purchasing these - I'm glad they sent me extra of the flavor I liked better, haha!
