REVIEW: Orange & Mango Oreo and Grape & Peach Oreo Cookies (China)

Orange  Mango Oreo Cookies and Grape  Peach Oreo Cookies

What are Orange & Mango Oreo and Grape & Peach Oreo Cookies?

To reward myself for braving Chicken Wing and Wasabi Oreo cookies, I also ordered some of China’s Double-Fruit Oreo. These were the standard chocolate cookies with dual-flavored fruit creme fillings. The orange/yellow variety was orange/mango, and the green/pink filling was grape/peach.

How are they?

Orange dominated the aroma of the Orange & Mango cookies. The Grape & Peach smelled like a subdued grape Bubble Yum Gum.

I’ll get right to the point, taste-wise. These are not authentic flavors in any way. They were fruit refracted through a prism of candy. If you find American Oreo flavors to be too artificial, these will not appeal to you – stop reading.

Hardcore sugarheads who are still with me: these fillings reminded me of SweeTarts – bright flavors in the neighborhood of the fruit they’re meant to be (orange was a little closer), although not quite as pucker-inducing as the candy. The chocolate cookies did some of the work of toning down the tartness.

Both cookies had a dominant flavor – orange won over mango and grape pushed peach out of the frame. I was hoping for the opposite in both cases. I tasted each colored half of the filling separately in search of the missing fruit, but found the color difference is purely cosmetic.

I enjoyed these on the whole – the chocolate and fruit worked together for me, but missed the peach and mango and wished they were a little more exciting in general.

Is there anything else you need to know?

The cookies had Chinese designs embossed on one side. They were cute and unexpected since the Hot Chicken Wing and Wasabi flavors were just the standard design. Google translate couldn’t recognize them, so if you know what they say, leave a comment – I’m curious.

Conclusion:

If you like fake fruit, and these end up being released in America, give ‘em a go! Splurging on having them sent from China is probably not worth it, however.

  1. I’m glad you got to enjoy these after what could only be described as “enduring” the other ones.

  2. The Chinese on the Oreos pictured is:

    ?-ha. As in a laughing sound
    ?-Nian/Year. I’m sure if you ate more of these this would sense.
    ?-Kuai/Fast/Happy. Like The previous one, if you ate more of these It’ll make sense
    ?-Fu/Good fortune

    So I’m guessing these would spell out something like ???? or something to that effect, which translates to Happy New Year. The general theme is about happiness, prosperity, and good times.
