REVIEW: Caramel Apple Oreos

You’ll have to bare with me, guys. Tonight I’m reviewing Nabisco Caramel Apple Oreos over a year too late. Every other notable food blogger has already covered them, and I highly recommend reading any of their reviews for a more qualified opinion. I bought these what seems like forever ago, but I have been too busy reviewing 500 pumpkin spice flavored products. I regret nothing.

For those of you that hate pumpkin spice, caramel apple is your fall flavor of choice almost by default. For those of us that love pumpkin spice, caramel apple is the forgotten stepchild of fall flavors. I don’t have any personal gripe against caramel apple, but putting these alongside anything with the words “pumpkin spice” on it is like asking me to choose between making out or going all the way on a first date. Pumpkin spice is the best lay I’ve ever had, and it will be my junk food booty call 10 times out of 10. This should cement my status as the sorriest food blogger/person in the entire world.

Nabisco limited edition Caramel Apple Oreos feature golden Oreo wafers and a caramel apple flavored cream that is half green and half brown. The creme, when licked sensually on its own, is a little tart and plenty sweet. It’s a fairly successful representation of any generic red apple, despite it’s alarmingly green appearance. Electric green might make you think “Granny Smith apple,” but I didn’t find these to be all that sour. The presence of caramel is detectable, albeit faint, in the brown creme.

Eaten all together, the sugary sweetness of the vanilla Oreo wafer mutes the flavors substantially. You can kiss the caramel flavor goodbye, but the apple does emerge on the back end and provide a more refined, more fruity Golden Oreo. I thought the caramel apple flavor might clash with the vanilla, but that wasn’t the case here. I simply wanted the caramel apple to shine more than it did. While these Caramel Apple Oreos didn’t particularly impress me, they definitely didn’t disgust me. Though I may have wanted these to be more sour, they likely would not have been as snackable as these are. Their biggest flaw in these Caramel Apple Oreos is that they completely lack any pumpkin spice flavor whatsoever. I’d surely recommend these to caramel apple enthusiasts, but I’ve already texted Pumpkin Spice Oreo and she should be over as soon as she can find a cab.

    These are my sister’s absolute favorite Oreo! (These and marshmallow Krispy). But she says they taste remarkably similar to the caramel apple lollipops she had as a little kid. For me caramel apple is not that interesting. I’m not sure why. I guess I prepare plain apples and I prefer chocolate or vanilla to caramel anything. And definitely pumpkin spice anything to caramel apple anything. For Oreos…what new flavor do you wish they would come out with?

    Marshmallow Crispy is one of my personal favorites, if not my absolute favorite! I’m not particularly thrilled with the caramel apple movement, but I think it’s an appropriate choice for a fall flavor. As far as future Oreos, I think it’s a odd that we haven’t gotten a Salted Caramel Oreo yet. Maybe a peanut butter & jelly one, too? It would be extra fun if they could add little bits of peanuts to make it like crunchy peanut butter, but I doubt they would ever go that route for nut allergy reasons.
