REVIEW: Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes

Are you thinking what I’m thinking when it comes to the new Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes? Let’s find out. On the count of three, let’s yell out what we’re thinking.

One…two…three…cookie incest!

Oh, you weren’t thinking cookie incest. Instead you were thinking about how I already reviewed these fudge-covered, mint-flavored cookies awhile back and your dislike of the spelling of “cremes” because that’s how them French folks spell it. Or if you live in France, you were thinking about how I already reviewed these fudge-covered, mint-flavored cookies awhile back and your dislike of American companies stealing “cremes” from your vernacular.

I can understand why you might think I reviewed these in the past, because they’re extremely similar to the Limited Edition Mint Fudge Covered Oreos I tried a few months ago. While those were whole regular Oreos covered in a mint fudge, these are mint Oreos, minus one of the chocolate cookies, covered in regular fudge. Their ingredients might be slightly different, but they taste exactly alike

After reading the previous sentence, are you thinking what I’m thinking? Let’s find out again. On the count of three, let’s yell out what we’re thinking.

One…two…three…Kate and Allison Foster from the 1980s NBC show Double Trouble!

Oh, you weren’t thinking about identical twin sisters Jean and Liz Sagal, who played Kate and Allison Foster on the 1980s NBC show Double Trouble and are the younger sisters of Katey Sagal, who starred in Married… with Children and is the voice of Leela on Futurama. Instead you were thinking about how Nabisco is taking a page out of the Taco Bell cookbook because they’re selling a product that tastes like another product of theirs and pushing it as something new.

Overall, the Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes were very satisfying, especially when chilled. They may not be original, but because they taste like the delectable Limited Edition Mint Fudge Covered Oreos, which taste like Girl Scout Thin Mints, I can look past the lack of ingenuity. But I swear, if Nabisco comes out with an Oreo cookie that consists of their regular filling with mint chocolate cookies and dipped in fudge, I’m gonna bitchslap the nearest colophon.

Pros: Delectable. Tastes like Girl Scout Thin Mints. Awesome when chilled. 1980s NBC show Double Trouble. Adolescent dreams of Kate and Allison Foster. Futurama.
Cons: Trying to find a colophon to bitchslap. Not really an original product. My inability to read your mind. High in saturated fat, if you eat three or more of them. The spelling of “cremes.” Cookie incest.

REVIEW: Limited Edition Mint Fudge Covered Oreo

They say every time you reject a Girl Scout’s offer to buy their cookies, you take one step closer to hell.

Because I believe there is some truth to those words, I have yet to decline the saleswomanship of a Girl Scout who comes up to me as I walk out of my favorite grocery store and ask, “Would you like to buy some Girl Scout Cookies?” It’s also hard to decline them because they say staring into the eyes of a Girl Scout is like staring into the eyes of an angel.

But whenever I’m posed the question of whether or not I would like to buy Girl Scout Cookies, an internal quandary occurs. My cold heart says, “Begone Brownie Scout for I wish not to partake in your hedonistic cookies,” but because my heart is connected to my circulatory system and not my digestive system, which my mouth and stomach are a part of, it has no say in the matter when the following words come out of my cookie hole: “Do you have Thin Mints?”

My cold heart feels the way it does because deep down I want to reject every Girl Scout that steps in front of me, just like every girl who rejected me when I needed a date to my Junior Prom. I don’t care if I’m going to end up in hell, because all of my friends are going to be with me. I want to break free from this stranglehold because my wallet cannot take being asked every week if I want to purchase Girl Scout Cookies. But it’s difficult to do so due to the guilt I may bring upon myself from bruising the confidence of a young woman, because I remember the pain of having my ego bruised by the throngs of women who rejected me before bids were due.

But I think I may have found a weapon to help break the chains of guilt and to block the pleas of Girl Scouts — the Limited Edition Mint Fudge Covered Oreos.

Just like German pornstars are comfortable with being covered in bodily fluids, Oreos are no stranger when it comes to being covered in fudge, having been coated with regular fudge and white fudge in the past. The mint fudge used with these Oreo cookies made them taste like Nabisco stole the recipe for Thin Mints, because they taste surprisingly similar. Although, the Mint Fudge Covered Oreo has less of a minty flavor than the Girl Scout Cookie. But nonetheless, these cookies are good enough that they make me want shove my hand in the face of a Girl Scout and say, “Not this year, tween she-devil! Not. This. Year.”

As good as these cookies are, I wish they tasted a little more like an Oreo. The mint flavor seems to have nullified the white vanilla filling. Also, I was disappointed the box contained only 12 cookies. Sure, the fudge causes the cookies to be a little thicker, but the amount of cookies makes me feel like I’m getting jacked.

Girl Scouts may make me feel guilty, but they don’t make me feel like I’m getting screwed.

Pros: Tastes very much like Thin Mints. Allows me to say “hell no” to Girl Scouts. It’s fudgerrific! Has one gram of monounsaturated fat. Staring into the eyes of a Girl Scout is like staring into the eyes of an angel. Breaks the chains of guilt.
Cons: It’s frickin’ limited edition. Couldn’t taste the white filling. Only 12 frickin’ cookies. Contains high fructose corn syrup. Bruising the egos of young women. Bruising the ego of a guy looking for a date to the prom.

REVIEW: Nabisco Dipped Delight Bars 100 Calorie Packs (Oreo & Nutter Butter)

You might be thinking these new Nabisco Oreo and Nutter Butter Dipped Delight Bars 100 Calorie Packs are awesome because, after all, they contain either Nutter Butter or Oreo cookies. But if you really love those cookies, you’ll stay away from these bars because they will taint whatever love you have for them. They will scar whatever happy moments you remember from your cookie eating past.

Take it from someone who had their memories spoiled by these bars. The first time I dunked an Oreo in a glass of milk…RUINED! The first time I scraped off all the peanut butter filling from a Nutter Butter with my two front teeth…RUINED! That time I created a Mr. Peanut action figure with a Nutter Butter, black pipe cleaners and construction paper…RUINED! That time I put Oreo fillings on my nipples and convinced a dog to lick them…RUINED!

If you’re going to slap “Oreo” or “Nutter Butter” on a product’s box, that product better taste, at least, a little like it, but neither of these bars taste like their cookie namesakes or have any cookies in them.

The Oreo Dipped Delight Bar has a chocolatey coating that covers a layer of white cream filling that’s on top of a chewy chocolatey crisped rice bar. It smells like a Hostess HoHo, but doesn’t taste like one. It has a weird chocolatey flavor that doesn’t come close to reminding me of an Oreo cookie. As for the Nutter Butter Dipped Delight Bar, it has a layer of peanut butter filling on top of a bar of chewy crisped rice that’s dipped into a peanut butter-ish coating. It doesn’t taste like a Nutter Butter or even peanut butter, but for some strange reason, it does taste like pretzels, which aren’t in the ingredients.

Not only were their flavors disappointing, but the wrapper each bar comes in makes them seem bigger than they truly are. They’re quite petite, measuring at 2.75 inches long, which I expected since they only have 100 calories. But the packaging measures 5 inches from end to end. If you take out half an inch from each end for sealing the wrapper, there’s still more than an inch of space inside it. So about one-fourth of the package’s volume is just air. It’s the equivalent of putting a small penis into a Magnum-sized condom.

If you’re a calorie watcher and log everything you eat to make sure you stay under a certain amount of calories, this product might be of some interest to you, although there are tastier products in the Nabisco 100 Calorie Pack line. But if you decide to try them, I’d recommend the Oreo one over the Nutter Butter.

These Nabisco Dipped Delight Bars don’t taste like either Oreo or Nutter Butter cookies, the packaging they come in is somewhat misleading and now my memory of trying to explain the art of teabagging to my sheltered female friend using a Nutter Butter turned on its side and dangling above my face…RUINED!

Rating: 3 out of 10 (Oreo)
Rating: 2 out of 10 (Nutter Butter)
Pros: 100 calories per bar. Dipping an Oreo in milk. Scraping off peanut butter filling with front teeth.
Cons: Doesn’t taste like an Oreo or Nutter Butter. Doesn’t contain cookies. Nutter Butter version tastes like pretzels. Oreo version has a weird chocolatey flavor. Bars are significantly smaller than the packaging they come in. They will scar whatever happy moments you remember from your cookie eating past.

REVIEW: Golden Double Stuf Oreo

Golden Double Stuf Oreo

For those of you who aren’t familiar with porn, when two guys are having intercourse with one woman at the same time, the genre (yes, there are genres) is called double penetration. But I don’t like that term, because it seems a bit too harsh and violent. I’d like to start a movement to get the genre name changed to the much friendlier “double stuf,” named after the regular Double Stuf Oreo and the new Golden Double Stuf Oreo.

Think of it as the equivalent of menstruation’s “Aunt Flo.”

With a more affectionate term, it would be a win-win for the porn industry and Nabisco. More people will buy or rent double stuf videos, like Double Backdoor Honeys, Duo Deckers and Two of a Behind, and hungry masturbators everywhere will crave Double Stuf cookies. Although, the use of the term “cream filling” in the double stuf video might not make the cookies too appetizing.

If double stuf becomes a part of the pornography vernacular, it won’t be long before Double Stuf the Magic Hungmen becomes a porn series.

While you dwell on my awesome cross-promotion skillz, let me tell you about the new Golden Double Stuf Oreos, which for some reason I thought already existed. After I opened the packaging using the easy pull tab, I swear I could smell the scent of marshmallows coming from it. By the way, someone should win a Nobel Peace Prize, or at least an AVN Award, for the easy-to-open resealable packaging.

I haven’t had Golden Oreos in a very long time, but I know in the past that I didn’t really care for them. However, I guess my taste buds have had a change of taste, or maybe it’s the high fructose corn syrup, because I really like its vanilla flavor. The lickable cream filling tastes the same as the stuff found in between the chocolate cookies of a regular Oreo and it enhances the flavor of the crunchy vanilla cookies.

While I really do enjoy the Golden Double Stuf Oreos, I still prefer the chocolate Oreos over them, which proves once again, “Once you go black, you’ll never go back” or “Once you go golden, you’ll keep your options open.”

Pros: Great vanilla flavor. Cream filling enhances the vanilla flavor. More cream filling than regular Oreos. My awesome cross-promotion skillz. The easy-to-open resealable packaging. The term “double stuf” to replace “double penetration.”
Cons: Not as good as regular Oreo cookies. Not as good as regular Oreos to dip in milk. High fructose corn syrup. 150 calories for ONLY two cookies. Ruining childhood stories with porn versions of them. The term “double penetration.”

REVIEW: Limited Edition Oreo Fudge Sundae Creme

What is black, white and red all over?

An Oreo Fudge Sundae Creme on top of an apple.

HA! HA! HA!

I know. Right about now you want to punch me in the face for that horrible riddle. I’ll admit, it wasn’t at all impressive and, just to let you know, I punched myself in the face for it. But I came up with that poorly conceived riddle to see if I could create something as unimaginative as the Limited Edition Oreo Fudge Sundae Creme cookies.

It seems Nabisco is taking a page out of the Pop-Tarts Playbook by offering flavors that are straight off of an ice cream parlor’s menu. It’s like they looked under Pop-Tarts’ skirt to find out what panties she was wearing, discovered it was a Victoria’s Secret PINK thong, picked one up for herself and pretended to be Pop-Tarts in front of a mirror. It’s sort of like the movie Single White Female, except no one gets stabbed with a shoe or screwdriver and that guy from the TV show Wings isn’t around.

Could Nabisco try to impress me? All the Oreo Fudge Sundae Creme consists of is a filling that’s half regular white Oreo filling and half fudge flavored filling in between two regular chocolate cookies. It seems they put as much effort into it as I did with the riddle at the beginning of this review. It’s like all they did was forge together a normal Oreo with a Chocolate Creme one. They’re gonna have to do more than that. They gotta tickle my balls, and not just with their fingers, but lightly with their fingernails. Or if they have either handy, a feather or a starchy tube sock.

I’ll admit, I did enjoy the Oreo Fudge Sundae Creme, but that’s not saying much because as I’ve said before, I would get busy with any Oreo flavor in a Burger King bathroom. It has a decent chocolateyness to it that wasn’t too powerful thanks to the white Oreo filling, but I think it tastes too similar to the Oreo Chocolate Creme.

There were also inconsistencies with the ratio of fudge filling to normal white filling. Some Oreos had a lot of fudge filling, while others had little. There was also shiny, oily film over the filling, which I’m going to call Oreo Sweat — feel free to add it to Urban Dictionary. While the Oreo Sweat makes it easier to twist off the top cookie, if you’re into licking the filling, you dirty girl, it’s not really pleasant to think that this cookie can get wet.

Pros: I enjoyed it. I’d get busy with it in a Burger King bathroom. Decent chocolateyness. Pretty much any Oreo flavor is a good flavor. Thongs. Tickled balls.
Cons: Taste similar to the Oreo Chocolate Creme. Unimpressive flavor idea. Shiny, oily film over filling. Inconsistencies with filling ratio. Contains high fructose corn syrup. My riddle abilities.

REVIEW: Peanut Butter Creme Oreo Cakesters

It doesn’t take much to make my nipples hard.

A light winter breeze, a cold shower or reading a Harry Potter book by candlelight in only my boxers all have the ability to areolas extendus. But nothing gets my nipples stiffer than the combination of chocolate and peanut butter.

It’s so bad that whenever I’m eating a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, I make sure to fold my arms across my chest so that I don’t poke an eye out with my chesty protrusions. Because of my nipple’s love for chocolate and peanut butter, I was looking forward to enjoying the Peanut Butter Creme Oreo Cakesters.

If you’ve never had Cakesters before, it has a cream filling that’s inside two soft cake cookies that have a consistency that’s similar to the nipple (and artery) hardening Hostess Twinkies and Ho Ho. If you’ve never wrapped your lips around anything Hostess makes or Cakesters, congratulations, you will probably live a few years longer than those of us who have.

The Peanut Butter Creme version combines soft chocolatey cake on the outside with a peanut butter filling, which sounds really good and I was hoping it would be just as delicious as the regular Peanut Butter Creme Oreos. But sadly, after eating it, I feel they’re trying to hurt the sacred combination of chocolate and peanut butter in one cakey swoop. Instead of making my nipples erect, the Peanut Butter Creme Oreo Cakesters takes my nipples and gives them a purple nurple.

The chocolate cake cookies are just as soft as all the other flavors of Cakesters I’ve tried, but the flavor of the peanut butter creme is significantly muted and the only time I really taste it is in the aftertaste. This is disappointing because what makes my nipples turn into rockets when I eat a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup is the nutty flavor of the peanut butter which stands out more than the chocolate.

Unfortunately, the Peanut Butter Creme Oreo Cakesters accomplishes the opposite of that and makes my nipples sore with sadness.

Pros: Placing the word nipple in every paragraph in this review. Chocolate cake cookies were soft. Making my nipples hard. Contains polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. Twinkies and Ho Hos.
Cons: Weak peanut butter flavor. Contains high fructose corn syrup. One of the worst combinations that involves chocolate and peanut butter. Leaves my fingers slightly greasy. One Cakester is more than 100 calories. Getting a purple nurple.
