Nabisco Peppermint Oreos. They’re not new, but they’re limited edition and they’re Oreos so we have to review them because people Google “Oreos” all the time and we are desperate for blog hits.
This will be my first time trying the limited edition Peppermint Oreos, which is a big deal coming from a man who eats Oreos in the shower. But you’re probably wondering what makes these Oreos so special…
I couldn’t tell ya. Mint Oreos are sold year-round, and we’ve seen Candy Cane Oreos before. The image on the package shows the familiar red & white peppermint candy that we usually eat when we exit a Chinese Buffet. “Surely this peppermint candy will wash away my shame,” you say to yourself while the door hits your fat ass on the way out.
If these Peppermint Oreos are successful, I will probably stop brushing my teeth entirely and just eat Oreos after every meal (my meals are usually just Oreos anyway).
When I opened the package, I picked up a convincing peppermint scent but it didn’t kick me in the nuts and I’m very ok with that. I began by licking the toothpaste creme out of the Peppermint Oreos. It’s a lot sweeter than the red & white hard candies, and I’m ok with that too. Nabisco definitely nailed peppermint versus an alternative form of mint – it’s just a lot sweeter. A soothing, cooling sensation ravages your mouth next as the sugar ravages your abdomen.
Eating these Peppermint Oreos with the cocoa wafer is a lot like eating a Thin Mint Girl Scout cookie. However, I much prefer the coated texture of a Thin Mint over these. Remember how I said the peppermint didn’t kick you in the nuts? The deep chocolate wafer mutes the mint even more. The flavor combo is just too familiar because you eat so many Thin Mints each year when your coworker guilts you into buying 5 boxes so their daughter can hit their fundraising goals. Get the hell out of my office, Stacey.
Peppermint Oreos aren’t worth writing home about, but they’re certainly worth writing a meaningless blog post about. There’s just nothing truly special about them. Peppermint is everywhere this time of year, and we’re all trying to use our calories wisely with so many fat bombs to eat. These are something I can pass on personally. Others might be quite fond of them.
Like Santa, for instance. He would probably loves these before and after he kisses your Mom.
