5. Peanut Butter
This Oreo is the new girlfriend of your friend who clearly only started dating her because she looks just like his ex -- I say that because this is a straight-up Reese's Oreo clone. Because the Reese's Oreo was a limited-time cookie, this is here in its place. Don't worry, you can still find Reese's Oreo on eBay and whatnot. Anyways, it falls a little short, because a copy will never be as good as the original. If Michael Keaton were an Oreo and his movie Multiplicity was about a guy who clones cookies again and again, this would be the second or third Michael Keaton -- not super dumb, but also not the original. That said, you'll always win points with me for combining chocolate and peanut butter.
4. Golden Birthday Cake
Pretty sure they melted down a birthday cake into a cookie, because I don't know how else they nailed the taste so hard. If I didn't know what I'd just eaten, the aftertaste would make me think I was just at a kid's birthday party. It's uncanny.
3. Red velvet
I’ve never seen the words “Artificially Flavored” in such a large font on an Oreo package. It’s like Nabisco is telling you, “Yeah, we didn’t actually grind an entire red velvet cake down and then reshape it to look like an Oreo.” Though after eating this... are we sure they didn’t? This could’ve fooled me. I love the cream cheese-flavored creme, and combined with the deep red-colored cookie, it makes me feel like I’m eating a red velvet cake that’s been grinded down and reshaped into an Oreo. You know, like I said earlier.
2. Oreo Mini
If I'd had these as a kid, I would have been obese. Now that I have them as an adult, I still might become obese unless I throw them away. As a kid, though, I'd have eaten them for breakfast floating in a bowl of milk, for lunch also floating in a bowl of milk, and for dinner I would've just shoveled handfuls into my face. They figured out how to pack all that Oreo flavor into a smaller package. Genius!
1. Cinnamon bun
“Oh hell yes.” Those were the extent of my notes after tasting this. This tastes like eating icing. The cinnamon cookie -- which I don’t believe they use in any other Oreo -- combined with the amazing icing flavor creme turns this cookie into a magical, cinnamon-spiced ride for your taste buds. No longer do you need to schlep to a mall food court or an airport when you need a fix. Even better, I’m willing to go out on a limb and say this is the best tasting Oreo that Nabisco has ever manufactured. We’ve come a long way from two chocolate cookies and a vanilla creme filling, haven’t we?
