Whenever I go to see my doctor for a yearly checkup, she hits my knee with one of those medical hammers you only ever see in the doctor’s office, and my leg dutifully kicks upward. Similarly, whenever I see a new Oreo flavor in the grocery store, my hand dutifully grabs the package and puts it in my shopping cart. My doctor may dispute my claim that I am helpless against the beautiful, sugary assault of new Oreo cookies, but what the heck does she know? (Other than medical stuff.)
Anyway, it happened again the other day, with four new flavors hitting shelves: Carrot Cake Oreo, Dark Chocolate Oreo, Oreo Thin Bites (White Fudge Dipped), and, just in time for Valentine’s Day, the limited edition Love, Oreo. Here’s what we think of all four new Oreo flavors, and whether they’re worth the dough.
