Oreo is commemorating the release of the new film Trolls World Tour with a limited edition version of its cookies. Trolls World Tour Oreo comes in two varieties: a golden Oreo filled with pink-colored crème and glitter, and a traditional chocolate Oreo filled with green crème, glitter, and popping candy.
The first thing that caught my eye was the size of the packages. They’re only 10.7 ounces, whereas a traditional package of Oreo comes in at 14.3 ounces. Edible glitter must be expensive.
I tried the Golden Oreo first and was immediately taken aback by the color of the crème. It was much brighter than I was expecting. I know absolutely nothing about the “Trolls” franchise, but apparently music is a critical component of its universe. Each Oreo had a musical themed design on one side. I followed my heart and tried a lute cookie first.
I twisted off the wafer and looked at the fluorescent pink crème, expecting actual glitter. Instead, it looked like the crème was filled with blue pepper. I envisioned my nephews being disappointed that the crème didn’t sparkle. The cookie itself tasted just like a traditional Golden Oreo. Texturally, the crème was a little softer than usual. If I squeezed the cookie together, the crème oozed out. It was certainly odd, but not quite off-putting.
They’re essentially a sub-par Golden Oreo that costs more.
The chocolate Oreo with green crème was immediately more appealing to the eye. The pastel green crème didn’t look nearly as unnatural as the pink. It was dotted with little green flecks that were either the edible glitter or the popping candy. These also have musical designs on one side, sticking with the theme.
They tasted like a traditional Oreo, only with the same softer crème that the pink version had. After a few seconds in my mouth, the popping started to kick in. It was fun! I adored Pop Rocks when I was a child, so this was a welcome sensation.
Oreo has released varieties with popping candy before, but I’ve never tried them. These almost feel worth the premium price, even if it is a simple gimmick.
If you enjoy popping candy and Oreo cookies, give the green variety a shot. The pink ones aren’t worth your money. However, if you have little ones, you may not get much say in the matter.
