Review: Cookie Dough and Marshmallow Crispy OREOs

Since you won’t be able to get a hold of them yourself until next month*, we thought you could taste these new limited-edition flavors vicariously through us, as we had some samps sent to the office (the creamy perks of running a food blog). Here’s how the Cooking Channel and Food Network editors’ taste buds and brains reacted to the taste:

Marshmallow Crispy OREOs

  • Hey, this does taste like rice krispie treats!
  • It’s like a sweeter version of regular OREOs, but I’m not picking up the marshmallow.
  • Tastes like buttah.
  • The marshmallow flavor is mostly overpowered by the vanilla cookies, but when you separate the cookie sandwich and taste just the frosting, it has a delightful sugary flavor and pleasant rice crispy bits which make it unlike any OREO I’ve ever tasted.

Candy Corn Oreos

Oreos, those cookies that have been around for a century — they just celebrated their 100th birthday this year — are an icon in the food world, or rather, they’re an icon in the bigger scheme of things. That’s because when you’re the world’s top-selling cookie, you have the clout to be more than just a sweet treat. The Oreo brand may have originally been known around the world for its creme-filled chocolate cookie sandwiches — in fact, it has become the generonym for any cookie like it — but it’s become much more than that. Oreos are a part of culture, and their public support of gay rights early this year — and the subsequent praise and backlash of it — has shown that Oreos aren’t just cookies. They’re cookies with influence.

With that said, Nabisco, creator of Oreos, can pretty much do whatever it wants with the prized cookies, and over the years, it has; Oreos come in different iterations of the classic recipe, from Double Stuf to Mini Oreos, but it’s not just about size. The standard formula has been tweaked for specific markets — for example, in Japan there’s green tea-flavored creme filling — and now, for the upcoming Halloween holiday, there are candy corn-flavored Oreos.

Obviously, it’s always a buzzworthy thing when the standard Oreo comes in a new version, even if it is for just a limited time. Candy Corn Oreos are only available for the next several weeks, to capitalize on Halloween hype.

But are they worth their own hype?

Birthday Cake Oreos: America’s Favorite Cookie Turns 100

Birthday Cake Oreos

Get ready to celebrate Oreo's 100th birthday with a sweet new spin on the classic.

It’s official: One of America’s favorite sandwich cookies is turning 100.

At Cooking Channel, we’re especially excited to celebrate, since our office is located in the New York City Food Person landmark Chelsea Market. The first Oreo rolled off the line 100 years ago at NBC, or the National Biscuit Company, in the space were Chelsea Market currently stands.

And what better way to celebrate than by fusing Oreos with what every person, pet, and cookie deserves on its birthday: BIRTHDAY CAKE.

That’s right: The flavor gurus at Nabisco have created a new birthday cake-flavored Oreo complete with rainbow sprinkle-flecked creme (obviously). And you better believe this Cooking Channel staffer tore open a box and tasted these birthday-cake bites of bliss.
