Sure, it's got the Oreo stamp on the cookie, it's in the same shape as a normal Oreo, there's that iconic creme in the middle, and it's got that specific Oreo crunch -- but this isn't an Oreo. That is, there's nothing here to remind me of that classic Oreo flavor.
That's not to say it's not delicious. Kudos to Oreo for changing up the flavors and introducing a spin on the classic. As long as you're cool with letting go of your expectations for an Oreo cookie -- these are certainly worth picking up.
