It’s only fitting that our first official review is a limited edition Oreo product. Nabisco, understanding fully that I will buy anything with “Limited Edition” on the package, has been pumping out new Oreo varieties at an alarming clip these past few years. In 2015 alone, we have seen the debuts of Red Velvet, Cotton Candy,  S’mores, Chocolate Lemon Twist, and Key Lime Pie. We know Brownie Batter is coming. It’s only July. Their strategy has bordered on madness.

Many limited edition Oreos are taken out to the woodshed and retired. In 2015, however, Nabisco continued their descent into madness and resurrected several varieties to include the incredible Reese’s Oreos, the lackluster Cookie Dough Oreos, and the deeply puzzling Cookies & Creme Oreos. Some varieties deserve to remain in the limited edition Hell I am certain they were sent to (I’m looking at you, Fruit Punch Oreos). But there was one variety this junk food idiot hoped would receive a much-deserved curtain call:


When I stumbled across these on a routine grocery store trip without any knowledge they were coming back, my excitement level would be shocking if it weren’t expected from someone that runs a junk food blog. Marshmallow Crispy Oreos were released in February 2014.  I foolishly only ate one cookie when they were released because I was on an extreme fitness regimen. Man did I love that single cookie. Because I have since employed a more relaxed diet, let’s see if they live up to my glorious memories.

Oh My God, Good Lord!

Oh my God, Good Lord! These are even better than I remembered. These should replace stupid Birthday Cake as a regular Oreo offering. The marshmallow crispy flavored creme is an extremely well-done representation of Rice Krispie Treats.  he addition of the subtle vanilla from the golden Oreo cookie is the perfect complement and gives them a more unique flavor profile. The vanilla doesn’t overpower like it does for some other Oreo varieties.

The crispy pieces inside the creme do get lost because of the super crunchy cookie, but they are still a fun addition because CRISPYYY!  If I had to nitpick to remain objective, the only knock against them is that they might be super sweet for some. The sugar overload leaves a little burn in the throat, but the aftertaste is still so pleasant that I don’t mind at all.

Well done, Nabisco. I want to eat these at my funeral (what?).
