Archer Farms Wasabi Soy Kettle Cooked Potato Chips

Maybe it’s just me, but that’s a weird way to present wasabi on the bag. It’s just SPLAT! I don’t think I would trust a sushi restaurant that served it like that. (Spotted by Dustin at Target.)

REVIEW: Nabisco Limited Edition Key Lime Pie Oreo Cookies

Limited Edition Key Lime Pie Oreo Cookies

With all the s’mores-flavored products this time of year, I consider s’mores to be summer’s pumpkin spice. But because there are also a number of Key Lime Pie-flavored stuff, but not as much as s’mores, I like to think of Key Lime Pie as summer’s candy corn. So I guess it’s fitting that Nabisco released Limited Edition S’mores and Key Lime Pie Oreo Cookies during these warm months.

I’m no food scientist, but I assume it took oodles of money and bodies to create the graham flavored cookie that came with the S’mores Oreo. So I’m glad they were able to reuse that cookie for these Key Lime Pie Oreo and not let it sit unused like arenas and stadiums in many cities that have hosted the Summer Olympics, which also took oodles of money and bodies to create.

Along with the wafers, these Oreo come with an artificially flavored and Hulk-colored Key Lime creme. If you’re wondering if it’s the exact same Hulk-colored creme from last summer’s Limeade Oreo, I don’t know. Even though I’ve had them, to continue my streak of Oreo varieties consumed (I’m coming for you Guinness Book of World Records), I can’t exactly remember what they taste like. But I do remember I liked them a lot.

And I enjoyed these Oreo cookies as well.

But…I’m not 100 percent sold on the graham cracker and whether it complements the creme. With the Limeade Oreo Cookies, the Golden wafers were able to cut through the tartness of the lime. But the graham cookies don’t do that with these.

The Key Lime creme does artificial lime really well, but the strong tart flavor makes it difficult to recognize the graham flavored cookies when eating them whole. But it shouldn’t be surprising to me since I thought it was hard to get a hint of graham with the S’mores Oreo. Oh, and while I’m lightly bashing the graham cookie, I’d like to add that they aren’t as crunchy as a Golden Oreo and they look like Golden Oreo wafers with bad spray tans.

My disappointment with the graham cookie was so strong that I felt compelled to buy graham crackers and transplant the Key Lime creme on to them.

Much better.

Graham crackers have a mild flavor, but they do a better job at tempering the creme than the graham flavored cookies and I can taste the honey and graham-ness. My creme surgery job is what these Key Lime Pie Oreo Cookies should’ve tasted like. Maybe it’s just me but shouldn’t they be good enough that one would want to use them as a pie crust like regular Oreo cookies.

Look, so far I believe there hasn’t been a bad Oreo, and these Key Lime Pie Oreo Cookies are far from being bad, but I really wish those graham flavored cookies stood out more. Maybe Nabisco should use oodles of money and bodies to improve them.

Item: Nabisco Limited Edition Key Lime Pie Oreo Cookies
Purchased Price: $5.99
Size: 10.7 oz.
Purchased at: eBay
Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Far from being bad. Key Lime creme is pleasant. eBay sellers who don’t sell their limited edition Oreo cookies for $10 or more.
Cons: Hard to find. Graham flavored cookie need to be more graham-y because it’s hard to detect with the strong tart creme. Graham flavored cookie doesn’t seem to be as crunchy as original and Golden Oreo wafers.
