REVIEW: Caramel Coconut Oreo Cookies

Caramel Coconut Oreo Cookies

Oreo is starting the new decade with a FLAVOR BANG. The brand announced four new flavors (Chocolate Marshmallow, Caramel Coconut, Dark Chocolate Fudge-Covered, and Tiramisu) and launched three of said flavors this month.

I was most excited for the Caramel Coconut flavor because I know and love coconut crème. Probably like most folks, my mind went to Girl Scout Samoas or Caramel deLites Cookies. But, it’s SO MUCH tastier.

The caramel aroma really drew me in. The smell isn’t like your sundae caramel syrup or even what’s in a Ben & Jerry’s pint. It’s a deliciously deep scent that twinkles with a warmth that I ascribe to honey and/or brown sugar. And no, it’s not artificial like a Yankee Candle either. Oddly, there’s nothing about the scent experience that would even remotely hint at the coconut part of this flavor.

The scent makes up for the look because frankly, the brown crème doesn’t look very appetizing. It’s not something that would stop me from eating the cookie, but the off-tan seems to lean more like a pumpkin or maybe even maple crème.

Caramel Coconut Oreo Cookies Creme

Despite the creme color, I enjoyed eating every single cookie in this Family Size pack. Speaking of, why was I forced to buy Family Size?! I would’ve been so irked if this didn’t deliver. Yes, I checked if I could buy a regular-sized pack. I’m fairly certain a smaller size wasn’t made.

Anyways back to the cookie — it’s definitely more caramel forward but does have a coconut finish. If you’re not familiar with Oreo’s execution of coconut, I can see how it’s easily missed.

I also didn’t see any coconut bits when examining the crème, but I did discover small pieces wedged in my molars. That didn’t bother me too much as the stringy texture of longer strips of dried coconut isn’t my favorite.

Caramel Coconut Oreo Cookies are so wonderful that I’m going to drop this controversial thought: How about the Little Brownie Bakers and ABC Bakers reformulate their respective Girl Scout coconut and caramel cookies to be more like this Oreo? I would buy SO many boxes.

  1. Thanks for the review. Planning to pass on these (particularly a Family Size) since I’m not the biggest coconut fan but, since that seems fairly mild, might give it a shot if the girl scouts don’t take all of my money outside the store.

  2. Still so jealous over the UK for all the cool flavours we *don’t* get – i occasionally get to try them if i am desperate enough to pay the high prices of the imported ones. the caramel coconut sounds so good, again, can’t get girl scout cookies here, even on import, but have tried and love Samoas. Have some keebler’s on the way from an import site here as the next best.

    they would sell like hot cakes here so i can’t believe they dont do some different oreos flavours, even if we have our own! (we also don’t get oreos in these massive packs either, only a single roll)

  3. I heard about the release of this product about 1 month ago. I have been scoping the shelves at Kroger’s since then. I was finally able to find the Carmel coconut flavored ones and the are DELICIOUS! Well worth the wait! These are my bedtime snack. Thank You Nabisco!

  4. once again ur taste buds r the only way to know if its worth buying or not.. u have to know how it is.. my pallte is good enough and once again oreos missed.. will pass but incase anyone wants to know sprouts has salred caramel cookies.. they r big and worth the price.. or great value creme brulle or apple..
