REVIEW: Nabisco Limited Edition Cookie Dough Oreo Cookies

Nabisco Limited Edition Cookie Dough Oreo Cookies

It’s safer to lick the creme of these Limited Edition Cookie Dough Oreo Cookies than a wooden spoon covered in chocolate chip cookie dough, because, you know, E. coli, salmonella, and splinters.

Although, after eating these new Oreo cookies, you’ll probably wish you had a spoon coated in raw cookie dough and a phone with 9-1-1 already dialed and your finger above the send button instead because these Oreo cookies have a flavor that no blindfolded person would describe as “cookie dough.”

During an episode of The Nosh Show, I wondered if the creme would taste similar to the cookie dough chunks in Ben & Jerry’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream. After buying a pint, digging out almost all the cookie dough, and turning it into a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Vanilla Ice Cream, I discovered the creme also tastes nothing like the Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough, which has a strong chocolate flavor.

Instead, the creme filling tastes more like caramel with a slight coffee aftertaste. To be honest, it was a little off-putting at first lick, but after the initial shock, my tongue enjoyed the flavor. Maybe Nabisco was trying to capture the vanilla extract or maybe Nabisco’s food scientists didn’t taste actual cookie dough because, you know, E. coli, salmonella, and they’re scientists who know bodily fluid stains are the worst.

Nabisco Limited Edition Cookie Dough Oreo Cookies Closeup

The chocolatey chips in the creme couldn’t cut through the caramel flavor, because, with most of the cookies I ate, there weren’t many of them. To be honest, I think they were included just for looks so that the creme could look cookie dough-ish. They don’t add flavor or a chocolate chip-like texture. All the chocolate flavor comes from the crunchy chocolate wafers, which do a wonderful job of cutting through the sweet, tan-colored creme’s flavor.

It’s disappointing the chocolatey chips didn’t add flavor or a different texture because I’m all for Oreo cookies with a little something in the creme. One of my favorite Oreo flavors is the Limited Edition Candy Cane Oreo which has crunchy candy bits. They enhance the flavor of the peppermint-flavored filling and give the entire cookie a distinct crunchy texture beyond what the chocolate wafers provide.

While I think they taste more like a caramel Oreo and the chocolatey chips didn’t really add anything, Limited Edition Cookie Dough Oreo Cookies make my taste buds happy. So if you happen to see them, I say pick them up. And if you miss the opportunity to try them, do not cut up a log of refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough and place the slices between two Oreo chocolate wafers.

  1. I just bought these from Target tonight and I couldn’t stand them. They have distinct coffee flavor and worse yet with the grainy texture of the cream if licked off. I would never have given these more than a 5. Meanwhile the Marshmallow Treat Oreos are one of the best cookies I’ve had.

  2. I have to disagree with you a little bit there because the first time I tried these I thought they were gonna be gross like all the reviews I have watched so far say but it is the most delicious Oreo I have ever had. I can’t even decide if I like it better than the original or not. The thing is that it does taste like cookie dough to me, most similar to the Breyers Cookie Dough Ice Cream try that and you will see the similarity. If I had to rate it I would give it a solid 9/10.

  3. I bought the cookie dough oreos yesterday and they are horrible! They taste like maple syrup, not caramel or coffee. I want a refund, I feel ripped off. I won’t be able to eat these.

  4. I am not a huge fan of the original oreo and would not bother to purchase a container of them because I don’t think they are worth the calories. I tried the cookie dough and they I thought they were delicious, a thousand times better than anything else oreo has to offer. I love caramel and coffee, but I wouldn’t say these oreos taste like caramel or coffee at all. They don’t taste like real cookie dough, but they do taste like something that is cookie dough flavored (this is like distinguishing between certain fruits and fruit flavored things).

  5. I have both packages and the cookie dough is terrible and the marshmellow isn’t that far off in taste. They need to fire the people who thought these abomonations up.

  6. I liked these cookies. I like to eat raw cookie dough, and well it didn’t taste like cookie dough at all. I do appreciate that they made the filling gritty like real cookie dough. But I did like the flavor.

  7. Check them first… Had a new container of minis and when the top removed an any was in it ugh ugh ugh… beware what’s really between the cookie..

  8. Finally got my hands on them. These cookie dough ones are disgusting. The marshmallow flavor though is pretty good! Makes me think we need more rice krispy treat things like rice krispie treat ice cream??!

  9. these are fine, a little sweeter than traditional oreos, but definitely just taste like mocha flavor oreo. the cream texture is no different and the chips don’t add anything. its a shame because cookie dough texture is so easy to recreate!

  10. Think you should come out with a variety pack so people can try different kinds and then choose our favorites to buy.
