Listen, at this point, nobody out there is surprised to see another Oreo review from the gang at Fatguyfoodblog. At this point we have reviewed so many that we have to review ALL of them. But after my last review I saw something online and I vowed to talk about it before the next Oreo review. So here we go.
You know what I noticed looking at other folks on the internet reviewing new flavors of Oreo Cookies? Complaining! Not reviewing. We all know they can't all be a home run. No, no, this was complaining that Oreo does all these wild flavors and it's pleading with them to stick to the original and that's it. To those folks, I say this: STOP WRITING A FOOD BLOG THAT REVIEWS JUNK FOOD! You don't deserve it! You should praise innovation and risk taking! In a world full of the same old crap, one cookie company wants to try something new every damn time you turn around, and you're going to complain about it? WEAK. You'll never hear that crap from us. That's what makes us the greatest food blog on the planet.
Luckily the folks at Nabisco don't listen to the haters. Instead they are probably over at their head offices like:
Then they release another wild flavor and go back to dancing. Here's what they are throwing at us for the beginning of summer 2016! Strawberry Shortcake Oreo cookies! I can't believe they haven't done this one sooner. A classic summer dessert now reimagined as a sandwich cookie. But does it deliver the promised flavor, like the Cinnamon Bun Oreos, or do they fall flat like the Fruit Punch Oreos?
I was expecting these to be very similar to the Strawberries n' Creme Oreos that came out back in 2013, but from the moment I ripped open the package and the aroma of them filled the air, I knew they were going to be different. It was a pleasant, sweet, fake strawberry flavor and within minutes it was like I just lit up a giant Strawberry Yankee Candle because the entire room was bathed in it.
Before I even take a bite I'm taking away points for one little oversight. The package isn't resealable. In this day and age that blows my mind. For those of us who try not to destroy a whole package of Oreos in one night, well, this puts us in a spot. Because on one hand, I like to enjoy them a couple at a time here and there. If I can't reseal the package, I'm looking at a couple of days tops from when I open them to when they are stale as crap. Therefore, it forces me to have to eat way more than I want. Even though I do really want to, when it comes down to it. But still. I expect this kind of thing from Keebler, but not you, Nabisco.
