Oreo Double Review: Triple Double Chocolate Mint & Coconut Delight Fudge Cremes!

Well... it's been five minutes. You know what that means? Oreo put out a new flavor of their cookies. Wait... what's that? Oh, my mistake... apparently they put out TWO new flavors. Guess we really should change the name of this blog to FATGUYOREOBLOG.
Hey, Nabisco, if you're reading this, understand that we are just messing around. I think we speak for cookie lovers worldwide when we say, KEEP THOSE NEW FLAVORS COMING! There are few companies out there in the snack world who have the stones to take a chance on one new flavor a year, forget one a month like you guys. We applaud you.
First up...
There seems to be a gap in that cookie evolution...

Coconut Delight Oreo Fudge Cremes. You know the drill, it's half an Oreo cookie (the half with the frosting) covered in melty chocolate (aka fudge). Only this time the cream is coconut flavored.

Like you dropped your cookie in suntan lotion...but in a good way!
I really don't have much to say about these. I found that many of the things I had to say about the Birthday Cake version of these stands true here as well. They are delicious, but in the end too sweet to eat more than two or three. The coconut flavor works very well with the signature Oreo cookie, but honestly, I'd rather just a regular double sided Oreo with coconut cream in the middle. Nabisco, make that happen!

Let's move on to a monster...
Irwin didn't care about Coconut, but he's totally on board for these. 
Limited Edition Triple Double Oreo Chocolate Mint. Bra-vo. I could leave the review at that. I should just post a picture of me giving these cookies a standing ovation. You have three Oreo chocolate cookies with chocolate cream between two of them, and mint cream on the other side. You may remember they did a version of the Triple Doubles last year right around this time. Remember that review? Glad to see them bring this concept back, Triple Doubles! (aka TRIP DUBZ).


Unlike the Fudge Cremes, these cookies are very heavy in the actual crunchy Oreo Cookie department. They are a big, intense cookie. Ladies, you might only want one. Dudes, don't underestimate it. When you bite into it, sometimes they explode and shower your face and shirt with crumbs. Be prepared.


The mint cream definitely stands out more than the chocolate. It's a great flavor though. Instead of tasting like toothpaste, it's more subtle, like in a grasshopper cookie. I feel like the chocolate cream is less intense because you're already dealing with a chocolate cookie. If they had made the chocolate cream any more tasty, it would have combined with the cookie and taken over. The people at Nabisco are professionals. This isn't their first rodeo.


Are they worth seeking out? You bet they are. They are damn good and over the top. They are like the Triple Baconator of cookies. But keep in mind they are limited edition. If you don't scoop them up the next time you're shopping, you might never get the chance! Hey Nabisco... one last thing... how about a Coffee Oreo? Or Espresso? Damn that would be amazing. Who's with me on this?

I give the Coconut Delight Fudge Cremes a B-
& The Triple Double Chocolate Mint an A!

  1. Wow triple decker Oreo Cookies! In mint & chocolate flavour! They look amazing! We don't get that many varieties in the UK unfortunately :(.

  2. I still say they need to make the center cookie like the middle Big Mac bun, with two smooth sides instead of just a regular oreo cookie wafer.

  3. I'd be on board with the triple double if it was white cream + mint cream. The chocolate cream does nothing for me.

  4. The mint triple doubles look interesting but I'm 100% with you on the mocha oreo idea. I mean it works well in ice cream so why not in real cookie form?

  5. Man I wish Canada would one day dare to be different and expand their Mr.Christie cookie variety! We got like 1-2 flavors that are different from the Original. If we're lucky, one will come per year. The Chips Ahoy middles was a nice touch, but I want to see more!

    1. Tessa, glad you liked that. Since they first came out that's how we refer to them around the house. "CRACK OPEN THIS BAG OF TRIP DUBZ!!" It works nicely.
