Are you thinking what I’m thinking when it comes to the new Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes? Let’s find out. On the count of three, let’s yell out what we’re thinking.
Oh, you weren’t thinking cookie incest. Instead you were thinking about how I already reviewed these fudge-covered, mint-flavored cookies awhile back and your dislike of the spelling of “cremes” because that’s how them French folks spell it. Or if you live in France, you were thinking about how I already reviewed these fudge-covered, mint-flavored cookies awhile back and your dislike of American companies stealing “cremes” from your vernacular.
I can understand why you might think I reviewed these in the past, because they’re extremely similar to the Limited Edition Mint Fudge Covered Oreos I tried a few months ago. While those were whole regular Oreos covered in a mint fudge, these are mint Oreos, minus one of the chocolate cookies, covered in regular fudge. Their ingredients might be slightly different, but they taste exactly alike
After reading the previous sentence, are you thinking what I’m thinking? Let’s find out again. On the count of three, let’s yell out what we’re thinking.
One…two…three…Kate and Allison Foster from the 1980s NBC show Double Trouble!
Oh, you weren’t thinking about identical twin sisters Jean and Liz Sagal, who played Kate and Allison Foster on the 1980s NBC show Double Trouble and are the younger sisters of Katey Sagal, who starred in Married… with Children and is the voice of Leela on Futurama. Instead you were thinking about how Nabisco is taking a page out of the Taco Bell cookbook because they’re selling a product that tastes like another product of theirs and pushing it as something new.
Overall, the Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes were very satisfying, especially when chilled. They may not be original, but because they taste like the delectable Limited Edition Mint Fudge Covered Oreos, which taste like Girl Scout Thin Mints, I can look past the lack of ingenuity. But I swear, if Nabisco comes out with an Oreo cookie that consists of their regular filling with mint chocolate cookies and dipped in fudge, I’m gonna bitchslap the nearest colophon.

Pros: Delectable. Tastes like Girl Scout Thin Mints. Awesome when chilled. 1980s NBC show Double Trouble. Adolescent dreams of Kate and Allison Foster. Futurama.
Cons: Trying to find a colophon to bitchslap. Not really an original product. My inability to read your mind. High in saturated fat, if you eat three or more of them. The spelling of “cremes.” Cookie incest.
