REVIEW: Fudge Covered Nutter Butter and Oreo Cookies

Fudge Covered Nutter Butter and Oreo Cookies

What is fudge?

Baby don’t hurt me. Don’t hurt me. No more.

My apologies for burdening you with that musical earworm, but I had to. You’re bobbing your head to the right like Will Ferrell right now, aren’t you? Yeah, you are.

Ok, but seriously, what is fudge?

When I hear “fudge,” I think of those chewy, gritty squares kept under glass at confectionary shops or Judy Blume books. What I don’t think of is this thin layer of waxy chocolate new “Fudge Covered” Nutter Butter and Oreo cookies are trying to pass off as the stuff.

I mean, we all know and love the cookies here, the fudge is supposed to be the draw, no? Is it even worth pulling these off the shelf when the old reliable Oreo and Nutter Butter are two feet away for the taking?

I guess that’s what I’m here to tell you, eh?

Let’s start with Nutter Butter because I’m ecstatic that classic cookie is getting some shine in the age of 4,839,320 new Oreo variations.

Fudge Covered Nutter Butter Cookies

Are you a fan of Peanut Butter Girl Scout cookies? I personally love Do-si-dos and Tagalongs, and I bet most do as well. Have you ever wished they somehow combined them into one super cookie? Well, here ya go.

These are basically a crispier, thicker Tagalong. They’re a bit dry, and the “fudge” masks the peanut butter slightly, but they’re great. I can’t stress enough how happy I am to see a spin on Nutter Butter. These coupled with the cereal have really made me appreciate a cookie that I often forget exists.

I almost feel like the Oreo version doesn’t need a review. Chances are you’ve had some kind of chocolate covered Oreo in your lifetime, and I’d wager to bet you enjoyed it. I can happily tell you that these won’t let you down. I ate seven of these with no regrets, and I usually max out on four Oreo cookies per sitting.

Fudge Covered Oreo Cookies

It’s an Oreo cookie with a chocolate coating, and while we’re not talking about decadent Belgian chocolate here (more on that in a few) it’s still an excellent combo. These are the inverse of those delicious Milka Oreo candy bars, with there being a lot more cookie than chocolate, obviously.

As good as they are, I do wish the chocolate quality was closer to Milka brand. That’s my one nitpick.

The second Google definition of “fudge” is “an instance of faking or ambiguity,” so I guess I can’t accuse Nabisco of false advertising, but I think the coating might disappoint some fudge purists.

It didn’t ruin my enjoyment, but it really is just a plasticky glob of chocolate. It’s so thin that I wouldn’t say it was necessarily bursting with too much flavor either.

That nitpick aside, I basically loved em. I’m just left confused as to what constitutes “fudge covered” vs. “chocolate covered.” Either way, go grab a box of each.

Oh, and sorry again about the earworm. You can stop bobbing your heads now.

  1. My guess is they’re not “chocolate covered” because whatever that coating is made out of doesn’t meet the federal guidelines for being called “chocolate”.

    1. Yes, this is a bit of a bugbear of mine. Because the definition of “fudge” is less enforced they call it that although to you and me that is not anything remotely like fudge – it’s just chocolate with palm oil or other cheaper fats instead of cocoa butter. In other countries they call it “chocolatey coating” to get over the rules.

  2. I’m sure it’s just me but I’m sad they didn’t retain the traditional ‘nutter butter’ shape for these special ones 🙁
    Just for nostalgia purposes. lol

  3. Nutter butters are a great peanut butter cookie..dipped in chocolate they suck big time..you’d think a great cookie would use a great chocolate coating..what a major disappointment..I actually couldn’t taste the chocolate..it was as though they sought out the cheapest least flavorable chocolate available ..total rip off not to mention only 12 cookies in the bag..but that was actually a good thing because I didn’t have to feel wasteful throwing them out.
