These Limited Edition Lemon Twist Oreo cookies don’t have a twist that forces you to ride the suspense pony like a typical M. Night Shyamalan movie does. They’re just two golden vanilla Oreo cookies with lemon-flavored creme sandwiched between them, so they’re pretty straight forward.
Or are they?
According to the front of the packaging, they’re made with “natural flavor with other natural flavor.” But after reading the ingredients list, I saw dead people…I mean, I saw it’s also made with artificial flavor.
Dum. Dum. Duummmm.
Okay, the only twist involved with these Limited Edition Lemon Twist Oreo cookies is the action of twisting and not the unexpected plot change in a work of fiction that M. Night Shyamalan will only be known for when directing career is over. Creme lickers know what I’m talking about. Stick out your tongue, if you feel me.
I twisted the top off of several Lemon Twist Oreo cookies and licked the creme like I was living in the 1980s and needed to seal an envelope and adhere a 20-cent first class stamp to the front of it. What did my mastication muscles discover?
I thought the creme was going to taste like a wood table that’s been recently cleaned with lemon Pledge, and I prepared for that by licking a Pledge cleaned table, but the creme tasted nothing like that. Instead, it had little lemon sourness that’s quickly joined with a vanilla sweetness. However, there’s a slight artificial lemon aftertaste, which you’ll relive after every post-Lemon Twist Oreo burp. The lemon creme was tasty, but licking it wasn’t as satisfying as French kissing the vanilla creme in an original Oreo cookie.
What was satisfying was keeping the top Golden Oreo cookie on and keeping my tongue in my mouth, because eating a complete Lemon Twist Oreo was delightful. The lemon creme and Golden Oreo cookies work extremely well together, creating a flavor similar to lemon meringue. The vanilla flavor of the cookies dampened the sourness of the lemon creme and enhanced the Oreo’s sweetness, producing a pleasant balance of sweet and sour.
I have to say the Limited Edition Lemon Twist Oreo cookies are one of the best limited edition Oreo varieties I’ve tried, and I would eat the entire package right now, but I have to ration them because these cookies are hard to find.
(Note: I’d like to thank Vanessa for mailing me a package of Lemon Twist Oreo cookies. I greatly appreciate it.)
