REVIEW: Nabisco Dipped Delight Bars 100 Calorie Packs (Oreo & Nutter Butter)

You might be thinking these new Nabisco Oreo and Nutter Butter Dipped Delight Bars 100 Calorie Packs are awesome because, after all, they contain either Nutter Butter or Oreo cookies. But if you really love those cookies, you’ll stay away from these bars because they will taint whatever love you have for them. They will scar whatever happy moments you remember from your cookie eating past.

Take it from someone who had their memories spoiled by these bars. The first time I dunked an Oreo in a glass of milk…RUINED! The first time I scraped off all the peanut butter filling from a Nutter Butter with my two front teeth…RUINED! That time I created a Mr. Peanut action figure with a Nutter Butter, black pipe cleaners and construction paper…RUINED! That time I put Oreo fillings on my nipples and convinced a dog to lick them…RUINED!

If you’re going to slap “Oreo” or “Nutter Butter” on a product’s box, that product better taste, at least, a little like it, but neither of these bars taste like their cookie namesakes or have any cookies in them.

The Oreo Dipped Delight Bar has a chocolatey coating that covers a layer of white cream filling that’s on top of a chewy chocolatey crisped rice bar. It smells like a Hostess HoHo, but doesn’t taste like one. It has a weird chocolatey flavor that doesn’t come close to reminding me of an Oreo cookie. As for the Nutter Butter Dipped Delight Bar, it has a layer of peanut butter filling on top of a bar of chewy crisped rice that’s dipped into a peanut butter-ish coating. It doesn’t taste like a Nutter Butter or even peanut butter, but for some strange reason, it does taste like pretzels, which aren’t in the ingredients.

Not only were their flavors disappointing, but the wrapper each bar comes in makes them seem bigger than they truly are. They’re quite petite, measuring at 2.75 inches long, which I expected since they only have 100 calories. But the packaging measures 5 inches from end to end. If you take out half an inch from each end for sealing the wrapper, there’s still more than an inch of space inside it. So about one-fourth of the package’s volume is just air. It’s the equivalent of putting a small penis into a Magnum-sized condom.

If you’re a calorie watcher and log everything you eat to make sure you stay under a certain amount of calories, this product might be of some interest to you, although there are tastier products in the Nabisco 100 Calorie Pack line. But if you decide to try them, I’d recommend the Oreo one over the Nutter Butter.

These Nabisco Dipped Delight Bars don’t taste like either Oreo or Nutter Butter cookies, the packaging they come in is somewhat misleading and now my memory of trying to explain the art of teabagging to my sheltered female friend using a Nutter Butter turned on its side and dangling above my face…RUINED!

  1. Sounds like they are trying to ride on the street cred of familiar cookies to sell more of their crappy “healthy” snacks. It’s too bad they don’t taste more like the originals; I remember an Oreo granola bar from the 90′s that was actually pretty good (they may still make it, I’m not sure.)

  2. I only had the Nutter Butter one before and I agree it was disappointing. I also remembering being very disappointed about the size of the bars. I hate when I am being mislead to believe that the bar was wayyyyyy bigger!!

  3. I usually don’t mind these low call snacks but their salt levels are so high. :p
    I do buy the chocolate dipped mini pretzles, very yummy.

  4. I’m afraid it’s time for the painful truth… no matter what the intentions are… no matter what the brand is… Low cal or “100 calorie” type snacks can never taste as good as the orig versions. Don’t get me wrong, some can make passable versions but still never as good. I’ve used some of these products before as a girl has to watch her figure, but still… I’m sorry nabisco, but somtimes you just need a little tough love.

  5. @Chuck: Were there actual Oreo cookie bits in it? This product would’ve tasted decent if there were Oreo cookie bits in it, but of course it would’ve been even smaller so that it could stay under 100 calories.

    @amanda: I think I could fit an entire bar in my mouth…I’m not going to try for fear of choking.

    @serial eater: Perhaps. Sometimes I go through these phases when I use sexual references in each review. These phases come and go, but they’re usually influenced by what I just watched or read or heard. I’ve been watching a lot of Jackass recently.

    @Review Spew: I didn’t have a bag of marbles, so the Nutter Butter had to suffice.

    @Lex; I like the parmesan pretzel from Pretzelmaker. But i would not dip it in chocolate. I would dip it in parmesan.

    @Ms. Spanks: I’ve got the perfect way to show tough love. Feed them these bars.

  6. I was reading this in my RSS feeds and thought this was a “food in real life” post. I started reading at 7:45 and was super groggy. I kept thinking, “why have they suddenly begun to ape the Impulsive Buy’s style”? Then I was wondering why their were no comparison pictures. Finally, when I reached the ratings, I realized it was you. You’d think all the talk of nipples, teabagging, etc. would have given it away earlier. ;-)

  7. I ate one of the Nutter Butter bars and through the rest away. I thought they had a weird fake cinnamon taste, and you’re right, no Nutter Butter or even peanut taste at all. I have a box of the Oreo bars still sitting in the cupboard. Not sure I’ll even try them after your review.

  8. I LOVE oreos. I love them so much I can polish off a WHOLE SLEEVE while I am walking to the living room so I’ll have to get up & grab some more. When I was in uni I had the idea that maybe if I ate ONLY OREOS ALL DAY LONG I would get sick of them and I would be able to exhibit some self control.

    I’m not sure how many days went by before I gave and embraced that fact that oreos must just be one of the food groups for me.

    I WILL NOT be trying this lame product. Thanks for the warning :)

  9. @Orchid64: When I finished writing this review, I thought about using the teabagging line to start, since it’s always good to start with your best line, but I was too lazy to cut and paste.

    @Brian: I will say the Oreo one is better, but not by much.

    @Shauna: I tried that with potato chips. All I got was hypertension and an even greater addiction to potato chips.

    @Wrong Ron: Meh.

  10. Marvo – That Oreo Granola bar did have oreo pieces in it; in fact, it was Oreo colored. It probably wasn’t a very healthy granola bar, now that I think about it.
