REVIEW: Limited Edition Dirt Cake Oreo Cookies


These Limited Edition Dirt Cake Oreo Cookies are good for a chocolate chocolate sandwich cookie. It combines a brownie-flavored creme with a chocolate creme with Oreo crumbs in it, and both are between two chocolate Oreo wafers with gummy worm-inspired sprinkles.


Let’s start with those gummy worm-inspired sprinkles. They’re flavorless rainbow shavings or unicorn eye crust. I get it; they’re “inspired” by gummy worms, but it would’ve been nice if these cookies had something else that brings gummy worms to mind other than color. These sprinkles aren’t gummy, fruity, or very noticeable without the right light angle. Look, I know an added fruitiness might’ve given some taste buds bad Swedish Fish Oreo Cookie flashbacks, but it would’ve also given these cookies some uniqueness. It’s as if the sprinkles were specifically added to look dazzling for social media.

As for the cookie as a whole, again, it’s a perfectly fine chocolate chocolate sandwich cookie, and I’ll enjoy the sugar rush I’ll get from it. I do get a Snack Pack vibe from the creme combination, and the addition of Oreo crumbs in the chocolate creme was a nice touch since those are the “dirt” in Dirt Cake, but it’s all a chocoreorgy that seems like a derivative of a cookie that the brand offered last year — Blackout Cake.


I just want to taste some magic with Oreo flavors again. It’s been a long time since I’ve experienced those OMG moments. I remember the smiles on my face when I tasted Cotton Candy, Fruity Crisp, Fruit Punch, and Blueberry Pie Oreo cookies. I was amazed by how well the Oreologists recreated those foods in cookie form. But there’s no magic coming out of Oreo anymore. I hope the folks working on new varieties put the previous sentence on a bulletin board or something because, after a year or so of uninspired flavors, it appears the magic is gone.

If you want a good Oreo with chocolate cremes, then these Limited Edition Dirt Cake Oreo Cookies will satisfy the chocoholic in you. But if you’re looking for an innovative new Oreo flavor…

  1. Alright this is exactly what I thought. Actual gummy would have been a buy but when I saw they were inspired sprinkes… big pass.

  2. Agree with your sentiment. Uninspired very heavy chocolate flavor. If you just eat the creme it taste somewhat like dirt cake but with the cookie, let’s just say you need to drown them in milk like they stole something from you. Because they did, they stole your hopes and dreams and they also stole your money.

  3. The folks at Oreo should have tasted real dirt cake before designing their recipe. Dirt cake is not chocolate flavor, it is a combination of cream cheese, whipped cream and vanilla pudding. This cookie is a major disappointment because they did not even try.
