REVIEW: Limited Edition Mocha Caramel Latte Oreo Cookies

Limited Edition Mocha Caramel Latte Oreo Cookies Package

When Oreo announced its new limited edition flavor, I thought it was Groundhogs’ Day. Haven’t we seen a coffee-flavored one already?!

After scavenging this site’s archives, there have been the following varieties:

Okay, close, but not quite this exact flavor. I see you, Mondelez! There’s basically no additional R&D needed if you just mash up previous cremes, right? After Oreo runs out of existing mash-ups, I wouldn’t be surprised if we started seeing savory flavors like the current state of the ice cream aisle…

Limited Edition Mocha Caramel Latte Oreo Cookies Uneven

Lack of uniqueness aside, it’s still a tasty Oreo. When I opened the package, the smell reminded me of 7-Eleven or Meijer Express, and I mean that in a good way. It’s that very distinct smell of syrupy, artificially aromatic coffee. It’s almost Pavlovian for me as I can just hear the ding of the door opening and the sweet coffee aroma immediately tickling my nostrils. The scent also helped me overlook how messy the creme looked. I was surprised not to see neat rows.

Limited Edition Mocha Caramel Latte Oreo Cookies Layers

This scent comes from the dual creme layers of supposedly mocha latte and caramel. I say supposedly because the tan part carries the team. It has all the flavor, so I thought it was caramel latte filling. I tried the darker brown creme repeatedly, but I couldn’t pick up anything distinct except for a flat, sweet note. So, I concluded that it was there just visual interest. I thought the darker brown filling was gratuitous because the cookie itself did a fine job being the chocolate portion of mocha. It also added a much-needed depth, a counterpoint to the caramel sweetness. Can you tell that I’m #TeamCookie?

But apparently, it’s mocha latte and caramel cremes. I really didn’t get that at all, and I have gingerly peeled apart the layers on many a cookie at this point.

Limited Edition Mocha Caramel Latte Oreo Cookies Peeling

Overall, there have been more exciting limited edition Oreo cookies, but I think this did the job of emulating a caramel mocha latte. I am, however, still left wondering if Oreo’s coffee flavors have caffeine in them.

Limited Edition Mocha Caramel Latte Oreo Cookies Dip

Regardless, I’ve started to dip these cookies into an espresso as my afternoon treat and it’s getting out of hand! Where’s the family-size pack of limited edition flavors when you need ’em?!

  1. What would be fun is an Oreo Sampler – a box with individual mini stacks, a guide on the lid (like the old Whitman’s Sampler).

    1. Yes…I love this idea! I’m usually interested in trying most of their new flavors (though certainly not all), but also almost never feel like eating more than a couple (except for the Swedish Fish Oreos!). Having a sampler pack would be perfect for me (and others like me…assuming any others like me, exist; lol).

  2. These are the best Oreo cookies I’ve had in a long time. I bought a package on a whim and my hubby and I ate them in a day! I’m going back today. Not sure how many packages I’ll buy but it’ll be more than one, that’s for sure.
