REVIEW: Limited Edition Mint Fudge Covered Oreo

They say every time you reject a Girl Scout’s offer to buy their cookies, you take one step closer to hell.

Because I believe there is some truth to those words, I have yet to decline the saleswomanship of a Girl Scout who comes up to me as I walk out of my favorite grocery store and ask, “Would you like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies?” It’s also hard to decline them because they say staring into the eyes of a Girl Scout is like staring into the eyes of an angel.

But whenever I’m posed the question of whether or not I would like to buy Girl Scout Cookies, an internal quandary occurs. My cold heart says, “Begone Brownie Scout for I wish not to partake in your hedonistic cookies,” but because my heart is connected to my circulatory system and not my digestive system, which my mouth and stomach are a part of, it has no say in the matter when the following words come out of my cookie hole: “Do you have Thin Mints?”

My cold heart feels the way it does because deep down I want to reject every Girl Scout that steps in front of me, just like every girl who rejected me when I needed a date to my Junior Prom. I don’t care if I’m going to end up in hell, because all of my friends are going to be with me. I want to break free from this stranglehold because my wallet cannot take being asked every week if I want to purchase Girl Scout Cookies. But it’s difficult to do so due to the guilt I may bring upon myself from bruising the confidence of a young woman, because I remember the pain of having my ego bruised by the throngs of women who rejected me before bids were due.

But I think I may have found a weapon to help break the chains of guilt and to block the pleas of Girl Scouts — the Limited Edition Mint Fudge Covered Oreos.

Just like German pornstars are comfortable with being covered in bodily fluids, Oreos are no stranger when it comes to being covered in fudge, having been coated with regular fudge and white fudge in the past. The mint fudge used with these Oreo cookies made them taste like Nabisco stole the recipe for Thin Mints, because they taste surprisingly similar. Although, the Mint Fudge Covered Oreo has less of a minty flavor than the Girl Scout Cookie. But nonetheless, these cookies are good enough that they make me want shove my hand in the face of a Girl Scout and say, “Not this year, tween she-devil! Not. This. Year.”

As good as these cookies are, I wish they tasted a little more like an Oreo. The mint flavor seems to have nullified the white vanilla filling. Also, I was disappointed the box contained only 12 cookies. Sure, the fudge causes the cookies to be a little thicker, but the amount of cookies makes me feel like I’m getting jacked.

Girl Scouts may make me feel guilty, but they don’t make me feel like I’m getting screwed.

Pros: Tastes very much like Thin Mints. Allows me to say “hell no” to Girl Scouts. It’s fudgerrific! Has one gram of monounsaturated fat. Staring into the eyes of a Girl Scout is like staring into the eyes of an angel. Breaks the chains of guilt.
Cons: It’s frickin’ limited edition. Couldn’t taste the white filling. Only 12 frickin’ cookies. Contains high fructose corn syrup. Bruising the egos of young women. Bruising the ego of a guy looking for a date to the prom.

  1. Looks mighty tasty to me. I actually prefer the texture of the Oreo when its covered in something. The mint + Oreo combo is a favorite of mine. I’ll have to check these out.

    When I was a Girl Scout, I had people say “hell no” to me. It made me cry.

  2. I think they should have used the green mint-flavored filling for the Oreos in this one. Then it would have definitely been a thin mints killer, or, you could say it would make Thin Mints its beeyotch.

  3. The fact that you can bring in both girl scouts and German shiza films in the same review is a testimonial to your brilliance. You are the master, but if you keep eating fudge-covered Oreos, you’ll have to be referred to as the fat master.

  4. Aww, could you really not get a date to junior prom, Marvo? That’s sad.

    That said, I don’t like mint in cookies (or anything aside from toothpaste) so I won’t be trying these. I do love the white chocolate covered ones though.

  5. You think you have temptation? Try having your wife be a daisy girl scouts leader AND be the cookie mom so your garage is filled with a calibrated ass-load of thin mints………..such will be my personal hell this year.

  6. My stomach hurts just from looking at the box. Because I know I could easily house all 12 of those suckers and not bat an eyelash…and then be sick later. Which coincidentally happened to me once up a time when I was in Girl Scouts for a hot minute. It was with the peanut butter ones; no idea what they call them now.

  7. They always seem to do that with those ultra special limited edition Oreos. I learned that when I got some of the White Fudge dipped one. Between me, my little brother, and my mom, they disappeared as soon as they got opened. I’m sure we wouldn’t even have to open the package to consume to closest thing you can get to Thin Mints outside of Girl Scout Cookie season.

  8. But nonetheless, these cookies are good enough that they make me want shove my hand in the face of a Girl Scout and say, “Not this year, tween she-devil! Not. This. Year.”

    Marvo, I think I just fell in love with you a little bit!

  9. I would totally go to the junior prom with you, Marvo.

    Oreos are icky no matter what you cover them with.

  10. @Gregory Ng – yeah they already done this where I live with mixing them into DQ blizzards. When I was living in MI they also did the peanut butter Oreos mixed in a DQ blizzard.

    @poopchef- let me know if you ever find this, I will be running out to buy them

  11. @Nicole Rates It: I hope you’ll be able to find them, because they were all gone when I went back to the store. Perhaps they REALLY limited edition.

    @amanda: Mint creme Oreos are a winner. I sometimes use them to freshen my breath.

    @Chuck: I agree and I wonder why they didn’t do it in the first place. With that much mint it would not only make Thin Mints it’s beeyotch, but also York Peppermint Patties.

    @Orchid64: But I try to balance it with exercise, so I’ll be the borderline obese master.

    @Natalie: Actually, would you believe every girl wanted to go to the prom with me and in order to decide I set up a reality show to determine who the lucky lady would be.

    @JJ: OH. DEAR. LORD. What’s your home address? And what time does your family fall asleep? Do you keep a key to the garage under a welcome mat?

    @Jillian (back to the nest): I could also probably eat all twelve in one sitting, but instead I ate 10 because I didn’t write the review yet and I like to eat the product while I’m writing the review about them.

    @Ayumiin: Consumption through box osmosis. I’ve seen that happen before. Cookie Monster has that skill.

    @The Frozen Food Master: By the time I finish typing this sentence, I believe one will be available.

    @Sara: Only now you’re falling in love with me? Usually it’s quite instant because I reek of pheromones.

    @Yum Yucky: Come over to The Dark Side.

    @Poop Chef: I don’t know. But I’m sure there are recipes on the internet that attempt to recreate them.

    @Carol: If only it was 1992.

  12. See, when *I* think of Girl Scout cookies, the only thing *I* think of is…

    “are they made of real Girl Scouts?”

  13. Do you have the white chocolate ones in USA? they are really really nice. 🙂 But more shaped like a kit kat than a biscuit. 🙂
    I have seen these in Aus, and I love peppermint but was hesitant…maybe should give them a go.
