REVIEW: Chocolate Marshmallow Oreo Cookies

Chocolate Marshmallow Oreo Cookies

I was prepared to start my review of the new Chocolate Marshmallow Oreo on a negative note, but I had reservations AND resolutions. While the flavor concept might seem plain Jane on the surface, it’s 2020 and I’ve vowed to be more positive.

It wouldn’t have been fair for me to call Nabisco “lazy” for kicking the year off with a mildly dull and derivative Oreo.

Whoaaaa, chocolate and marshmallow, talk about breaking new ground! We’ve never had Oreos with chocolate or marshmallow before. Congrats on just tossing a couple of old flavors together and passing it off as new. Shut up and take my money!!! Oh, and thanks for only selling these in a Family Size package! The bore the merrier, I say!

That right there is what a jaded reviewer might say, but not me, for it is 2020, and I’m trying to better myself by being more positive.

So yeah, maybe this flavor isn’t as creative as I was hoping, but I’m pretty positive – there’s that word again – I’ll like these. Chocolate and marshmallow taste good. It’d be pretty hard to screw that up, right? What’s the worst that can happen, they taste like a regular Oreo?

Chocolate Marshmallow Oreo Cookies Package Open

Folks, with full transparency, I must report that Chocolate Marshmallow Oreo Cookies are positively AWESOME.

That’s not just new and improved 2020 me speaking, these are truly the best Oreo cookies I’ve had in a long time, and the crème might be my favorite ever. I apologize to Nabisco for my earlier skepticism.

Chocolate Marshmallow Oreo Cookies Wafer

These could’ve easily been a chocolate wafer with marshmallow crème, but each chocolate wafer has little bits of marshmallow baked in, and the crème filling is a mixture of chocolate and marshmallow. Having both elements combined like that was a brilliant decision.

Chocolate Marshmallow Oreo Cookies Creme

The crème is a perfect balance of smooth chocolate and marshmallow flavor, which form a velvety texture that I swear is more satisfying than the usual. I found the greyish brown coloring aesthetically pleasing as well.

The cookies are dotted with tiny marbits that are similar to the little crispy ones you’d find in hot cocoa packets. My only complaint is that there aren’t nearly enough of them. Some cookies had so few they just ended up looking like standard Oreos.

If each wafer had about 25% more marshmallows baked in, these would have been a 10/10 in my book.

It took me a few bites to realize what these reminded me of, but then I realized it was one of my all-time favorite cereals, Count Chocula.

If you’re a fool who judges cookies by their covers like me, just pretend these are a partnership with General Mills, because these are 100% what Count Chocula Oreo Cookies would taste like. That would be a pretty exciting flavor, right? Now I’m disappointed we didn’t get that crossover.

Who knows, maybe that was what they were going for? Perhaps they’ll ape a few more Monster cereal flavors in the future. Either way, I’m positive I loved these, and I will never pre-judge an Oreo flavor again.

  1. Just bought a pack of these myself and I totally agree with your great review. I especially like that a few of the cookies even had some chewy spots from the outer marbits!
    In my opinion, only one Oreo can be judged by its cover. Swedish Fish. Absolutely horrible. Lol

  2. I was also skeptical but these might be my favorite Oreos. So good! I’ve already bought extra stock ?

  3. I think Oreos should do a toasted marshmallow flavor next. Using golden oreos with bits of toasted marshmallow and a toasted marshmallow creme.

    1. Toasted marshmallow? So encased in a sheath of black that leaves a gooey core when you scrape it off with your teeth? Because anything less than that is just mildly suntanned.

  4. The best thing about these is the marshmallow pieces in the cookie. When you bite down on a marshmallow piece, you can feel it. They are chewy and a great texture change.

    The “Family Size” labeling also makes me laugh. I would call it “Individual Size” or “Single Serving” — if you do your best and believe in yourself!

    1. I just saw “Party Size” packs of regular Oreos the other day. Just wait until they start releasing new flavors exclusively in _that_ size…

  5. sdcew being postive.. tell it for wat it is.. thats y i always go here and be sure that if its not worth or or if it is im gonna either go and get it or not.. ive been here for years and have to thanx all the reviews who care to say for what it is.. its always intrgueing over the years the tihngs ive seen and tasted.. i will continue to visit and see though i know what my taste buds r.. and they dont lie.. im tired of plps false tast buds lying to them and having to waste their money on a pridct that doesnt work… oreo did it justice with some of their recent flavors but more cholate then marshmellow doesnt do it justce…. im def not gonna waste my time.. their moon oreso were great.. only because if ur gonna combine two flavors u need to balance them out..

  6. The chocolate marshmallow Oreos are horrible tasting. Neither the chocolate nor the marshmallow taste like real flavor they are supposed to emulate. And, the picture of the the two marshmallows with the dripping chocolate on top of them on the front center of the package is really misleading. Unfortunately honesty in product manufacturing and advertising has taken another hit. I will never buy this item again.
