Every holiday season Nabisco rolls out its Limited Edition White Fudge Covered Oreo Cookies, and every holiday season I push my cart right past them as if they’re kale.
I tried them when they first came out years ago and liked them. But when I bought another box a few years later, I learned a valuable lesson: my sweet tooth now has limits. Again, they’re good, but just one makes my taste buds feel as if it’s the ledge of a sugary waterfall. The combination of the white fudge plus white creme is too cloying to me, and that prevents me from wanting to go 80s Cookie Monster on them.
But with these Oreo Thins Bites White Fudge Dipped Original Cookies, which are basically tinier versions of the cloying cookie, I seem to have no problem eating one, two, nine, 13, 21, or the entire bag, if my sweet tooth so desires, which it oh so desires. I think it’s safe to assume these are easier on my taste buds because there’s not that much fudge and creme.
The two white components are obviously not made with all of the same ingredients, but the exterior coating seems to have absorbed some of the inner creme’s flavor. So, when I eat these, I can’t help but think these tiny cookies taste like what would happen if there was a whoopsy version of Oreo that involves chocolate wafers coated with white creme.
It’s not surprising to me that I want to keep popping these into my mouth because it’s what I want to do with regular Oreo Thins. Within the coating is the same crispiness that I get from the thinner cookie, which I think are superior to the original. Don’t @ me. They have the right flavor balance between chocolate wafer and creme. While the white fudge does skew that, it does it in a way that doesn’t make them overly sweet.
This bag of Oreo Thins Bites White Fudge Dipped Original Cookies, which I wish was bigger, is hard to put down. If I didn’t have to pause in order to take the photo above and then throw the bag across the room so that it’s out of sight and out of mind, I might’ve eaten all of them in one sitting.
