REVIEW: Cool Whip Mix-Ins Oreo and Double Chocolate Brownie

Cool Whip Mix Ins Oreo

I’m not exactly sure whose daughter I am, because my mom doesn’t like Cool Whip and my dad barely eats dessert.

But since my sweet tooth is always raging (well, that and the fact I gave up sweets at my office for Lent so anything at home was still fair game), I was super excited to find these new Cool Whip Mix-Ins at the grocery store. I’ve always been a fan of frozen section whipped topping, not the stuff that sprays out of the can, so I got some vanilla ice cream and put the Mix-Ins to the test.

We’ll start with the Oreo, which set the bar super high. I first tried each straight from the container before adding them to the ice cream. Oreo had an extremely authentic Oreo flavor – it didn’t taste artificial at all. When I gave my husband a taste, he likened it to an “Oreo without all the cavities” since the Cool Whip is super light. You definitely get a taste of cookie chunks in there.

This was a new concept to me, since I’m normally not used to something IN my Cool Whip, but on top of it (i.e. sprinkles or chocolate sauce). I really liked the added texture, and the cookie chunks brought the chocolate flavor of the Oreo. It almost tasted like a mousse that I would eat by itself, without adding it to anything. Don’t be surprised if you find me alone with a spoon and this container…that’s how much I enjoyed it.

Cool Whip Mix Ins Double Chocolate Brownie

Double Chocolate Brownie was good, don’t get me wrong, but it just wasn’t as delightful as the Oreo. The best part of this flavor was the brownie bites — so soft, chewy, rich and chocolate-y. But the Cool Whip itself was lackluster — just a simple chocolate with an artificial taste.

You know when you crack open a peanut shell only to find a mediocre-sized peanut inside? That’s the way I felt with the Double Chocolate Brownie. I was hoping for the whole package, but only got the chunks. It was because of the brownie chunks that I gave it as high of a rating as I did, because they were so good. I would have liked the Cool Whip itself to be that great, not just the mix-in.

On top of ice cream, both flavors added a nice touch. But I’m standing by my proclamation that I rather just eat this straight from the container. I’m not much of a cook in the kitchen, but I think an icebox cake with the Oreo Cool Whip is in my future.

  1. And so, the Oreo cookie bits and the brownie bits are the only natural part of the confections? 😉

  2. Back when I was able to eat sugar, I used to add chocolate syrup to Cool Whip. You mix it together, and it’s like a wonderful chocolate mousse. These sound even better!

  3. I am thinking it would be good as a frosting replacement it’s lighter then regular frosting.

  4. Best oreo flavored food in the history of ever….even better than an actual oreo….Dollar Tree had them for…yep you guess it…1 DOLLAR!!!!!!

  5. Why did Kraft stop making french vanilla cool of the store in South Carolina carry them . please bring them back to the Carolina. be exact…..please bring back
