THE ADVENTURES OF THE FATGUYOREOBLOG CONTINUE!
Yep, so a couple weeks ago people started emailing and messaging us to review the newest flavor of Oreo's. Within hours we had dozens of requests, and people let us know we could only find them at Target. We began our search. Our local Target finally caught up with the rest of the world the other day so I scored a couple bags. Ladies & Gents, I give you, The Limited Edition Watermelon Oreo cookies!
|Mike creeping, clearly interested in these strange cookies...|
Or maybe it was closer to this:
Despite not having chewed a piece of Watermelon Hubba Bubba since I was probably 8 years old, it was immediately the first thing I thought of when I popped one of these cookies in my mouth. I had Mike sample one and he said it was more like a Watermelon Jolly Rancher. I could see that too. But either way, it's cookie that reminds you of a fake flavored candy. Its going to be weird, there's no way around it.
|They are colorful, I'll give them that...|
I'm glad they went the Golden Oreo route with the actual cookie for these, I think chocolate cookies would have been a massive mistake. The Golden Oreo cookie I think goes with the watermelon creme much better than chocolate would have. As it stands, they are just...weird. The crunch of the cookie goes together with the watermelon creme in a strange way, that makes me feel no matter what flavored creme goes between them, I could never completely hate a limited edition Golden Oreo. I think if you like the Sherbet Oreo's you'll probably enjoy these ones a lot. Not only do they resemble them in color but the flavor was kind of similar too.
That being said, I wasn't a huge fan of these. It's just a strange flavor that I don't think really belongs in the realm of cookies. You want it in your bubble gum? You want it in your hard candy? You want to get a slush from Sonic with watermelon flavor in it, knock yourself out. But when it comes to cookies, maybe when this limited edition vanishes from shelves, it should stay gone.
All in all I didn't hate Watermelon Oreo's but if they never return, my heart won't be broken.
I give Watermelon Oreo's a C-!
