REVIEW: Oreo Cakesters (2022) and Nutter Butter Cakesters

Oreo Cakesters Nutter Butter Cakesters Boxes

Oreo Cakesters look like what would happen if you accidentally let a regular Oreo slip from your fingers while dunking it in a glass of milk and letting it sit and swell in the dairy while you design and build a Rube Goldberg machine to retrieve it from the glass’ bottom.

I could give you a history lesson of these soft-baked Cakesters that’s as bloated as the cookie itself. But all you need to know is that they debuted back in 2007, were available for several years, had a few varieties, and then disappeared from shelves while we were probably all enamored with shiny, new limited edition Oreo flavors.

But now Oreo Cakesters are back, and they brought along a Nutter Butter version.

Oreo Cakesters Cookies

After allowing my taste buds to experience Oreo Cakesters after a decade-long absence, I reread my very positive Oreo Cakesters review from 2007. My thoughts about their flavor haven’t changed, but I like them less now than I did back then.

Overall, they’re a nice sweet treat that tastes like icing-less Hostess CupCakes, Ho Hos, and Ding Dongs, but in a better portion control size. However, the cakey cookie’s slight greasiness and/or the fact they don’t taste like Oreo cookies might deter first-time eaters from becoming second-time buyers.

Nutter Butter Cakesters  Cookies

The Nutter Butter version smells and tastes like the original cookie, which, again, I can’t say about the Oreo one. There’s a nutty taste in the soft cookie that enhances the creme, which is made with real peanut butter.

While I enjoy regular Nutter Butter, and these taste similar, I find myself wanting the Oreo ones slightly more. Also, I don’t know if it’s just me, but the light-colored cakey cookie is as greasy as the dark one but has a drier texture.

Oreo Cakesters and Nutter Butter Cakesters New and Old

Even though they were on shelves for longer than the original runs of Crystal Pepsi and Pepsi Blue combined, I can’t believe there was a lot of interest in bringing back Oreo Cakesters. They don’t taste like regular Oreo cookies and the half dozen new Oreo flavors released every year are far more interesting.

Although, the “in” thing right now is bringing back discontinued products. Plus, it has been 10 years since they disappeared from shelves, and I guess if there’s a good time to bring back something, whether it’s cookies, TV shows, or pets, it’s a nice round 10 years after they cease to exist.

  1. I haven’t tried these yet, but I will if I can find them. What I wish I could find are the deep fried Twinkies that I can stick in the oven!

  2. I love the Oreo ones. Glad to see them back and they taste just like they did before. The nutter butter were not good to me: very dry and the peanut butter taste was off (somewhat chemical?). So unless they reformulate those, I’ll stick to the Oreo ones.

  3. These are one of my favorite snacks ever and I’ve been waiting for them to come back! I got them at Walmart and they taste just like I remember. I’m not sure why they made a nutter butter one but I probably won’t try it. The golden one was great back in the day,hope they bring it back. Most brought back products aren’t the same,this one is!

  4. Loved the peanut butter ones. Oreo were good but a little chalky. bought mine at Walmart.

  5. The oreo ones are fantastic! They taste just like how they did when I was a kid! ? Also they have three packs of both the Oreo cakesters and the Nutter Butter cakesters at Casey’s ?. (Casey’s is a gas station chain found here in the midwestern United States.)

  6. Marvo woke up and cost violence this morning.

    This review has made you a powerful enemy, sir

  7. I saw the Nutter Butter cakes tees at Walmart on 1/19/22 and decided to try them. They were disgusting. The peanut butter filling was nasty and I ended throwing the 2nd one out. I am throwing the rest of the box away. I’m very picky about trying new food items, but I love Nutter Butter crème cookies, so I figured I’d try them. They were absolutely disgusting.

    1. I think the cream is greasy an doesn’t taste like the cream in the cookie now if they put that between the cakes it would taste like a oreo now not so much greasy but I love the cake part just need to replace the middle with the real thing

  8. After a few days, the Oreo ones are in short supply around here, and the Nutter Butter ones are plentiful. I decided to try the peanut butter ones when I first saw them on display, with the idea of picking up the Oreos on the next trip. But, I missed the boat. Yesterday I finally found an overlooked package, way in tge back of a shelf.
