It’s summertime and my kids are a tween and a teen.
Which means that my life looks like this now:
Yup, gone are the summer days where we blew bubbles, drew with sidewalk chalk, and enjoyed days at the pool or lake.
Don’t get me wrong. My kids still want to enjoy a fine summer day at the pool or lake. Just not with me.
Thus, I took it upon myself to make them talk to me by offering them Oreos if they came out of their rooms.
Here, for your culinary pleasure, as well as my summertime enjoyment, is our review of assorted Oreo cookie flavors.
Birthday Cake Oreos
One word from me: yum!
My fifteen-year-old son loved these, too. We found them light and refreshing, if that’s possible. Sweet, but not too sweet. Just a bit different than original Oreos, but still delicious.
My twelve-year-old daughter liked them, too, but didn’t LOVE them as her brother or I did.
Eat-ability: we ate them all in 5 days.
Repeat buy: YES
Peanut Butter Oreos
“I love peanut butter!” my daughter exclaimed when I brought these beauties home.
Until she tried them.
We all felt these were a bit disappointing. They have the same flavors as a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup, but why would you eat a peanut butter Oreo when you can eat a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup?
Eat-ability: I bought these a month ago and there are still some left.
Repeat buy: I’ll pass.
Great Value Twist & Shout Double Filled Sandwich Cookies
Okay, so these store brand Oreos are half the price as the originals. And the bag blares “Artificially flavored”, which is mildly frightening.
And you can’t call them Oreos, because that’s trademarked. However, I sort of like these cookies just for finding a similar sounding name that was a code for Oreos.
These suckers are delicious. Nice cocoa flavor, and sweet, sweet filling.
Eat-ability: Gone within a week.
Repeat buy: Absolutely.
So, my kids and I may gain some weight together, but at least we will have made some summer memories doing it, right?
Don’t forget about Oreos’ other flavors to try yourself. Some of them sound crazy (Fireworks? With popping candy?), some of them sound gross (Carrot Cake? Really?) and some of them sound fabulous (Smores! Yes, please!).
Now it’s your turn. How do you eat your Oreos? Twist apart and lick the cream center? Dunk? Shove it all in your mouth? I’m anxiously awaiting your comments.
