Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreos!

We joke around a lot on Fatguyfoodblog about how we should change the name of our blog to FatguyOREOblog because of how many new flavors of Oreos we review. Since Nabisco are the king of cookies in 2014, there doesn't seem to be any end in sight... But with all these flavors, you have to ask yourself: Will there ever be a flavor that will rise above all others? One Oreo to rule them all? Who is heir to the Oreo Throne? Well the other day we finally got our paws on a package of the new Limited Edition Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreo cookies. The most anticipated new cookie flavor in recent memory. Do they live up? Will they take the throne? Let's find out! Ladies & Gents, here you go...


Irwin still doesn't understand that he can't have chocolate. 
The bag alone was enough to make me cheer out loud in the store. A GIANT PEANUT BUTTER CUP IN THE BACKGROUND?!?! Sold. I have to say, seeing that Reese's logo on the package warmed my heart. I remember trying peanut butter Oreos for the first time and liking them, but saying to whoever I was with, "Imagine if this was Reese's peanut butter? That would be amazing!"
Well... turns out I was right. 

The second you rip these open, you know that you're about to experience something here. There's anticipation in the air. It's like the scent alone is telling your brain that they've hit a home run here. I had been worried that they would just slap the Reese's name on them, and we would just be getting the same old peanut butter Oreo cookies again. I'm glad I was wrong. You see, when you crack these open, one side is chocolate creme and the other is peanut butter creme. I immediately went for the peanut butter creme and then smiled like the Grinch. It's not EXACTLY Reese's peanut butter, because they had to make it an Oreo creme hybrid to hold the cookies together. But it's fantastic. You can't mistake the classic Reese's taste you've known all those years.

When eaten together, it's quite great too. The two cremes meld together to taste pretty much like a melted peanut butter cup and the cookie chunks make you think of those limited edition Reese's Crunch Cookie Cups from 100 years ago. They were, of course, awesome, and so are these. 
I haven't a bad thing to say about these and to be honest, while writing this review I ate seven of them. These seven brought the package to a close. The second package that we have gone through in Fatguyfoodblog headquarters in three days. They are that good. 

However. Are they good enough to take the crown? Have they faced all other Oreos in battle and come out the victor? Will they rule the world of sandwich cookies for some time to come? 


Bend your knee in the presence of such greatness!
A true king sits upon the Iron Cookie Throne now...

Gotta be better than Jof, am I right? 

Long live Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreos! First of their name. King of the Oreos and all other sandwich cookies. Lord of the Seven food groups and protector of the snack realm.

So, seriously. Don't let these pass you buy. Stock your cupboards with fifty packages of them, peanut butter lovers. They won't be around for long.

But in case you still weren't sure, I give Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Oreos an A!

  1. I had one package of the crunchy cookie cups back in the day (had to be around 1995,) and I've never stopped looking for them each time I'm in the candy aisle.

    These new Oreos are good, but they're not cookie crunch good.

  2. I use to love the reese's crunchy cookie cups.

  3. These are really, really good. I'm already sad for the day they vanish from the shelves.

  4. That day will be far too soon. I hope Oreo at least starts releasing the best of their limited flavors on a monthly basis so I have something to look forward to all year.

  5. Dude... DUDE... Right after reading this post. I got these oreos. I saw them and grabbed them, they are damn good. Now watch, since I like them they'll stop making them!

  6. I am an avid Reese's peanut butter cup lover. I have to say I was disappointed. The chocolate part was absolutely spot on. but the peanut butter, no. It tastes to me like the same old peanut butter from the peanut butter Oreos, which are good, just not Reese's.

    1. I tend to agree (this is mike), but I still think these are absolutely one of the best Oreo releases ever.
