Hot Cocoa Oreo
Initial Smell: The smell of these cookies coming from the wrapper is decidedly not plain Jane chocolate, it's got some additional scents...way more sweet. Could this be it? Could Nabisco finally be onto something here with their chocolate inception game?!
Whole Cookie: This may be the first time I haven't rolled my eyes trying a chocolate cookie party! The creaminess factor seems to be higher and there is definitely more of a "cocoa" flavor. This is for sure an Oreo that I cannot leave on the counter because I will "one more" that package to death...like the PB&J...RIP
Half Cookie: Hot cocoa is really a snack and a half. There is, of course, the hot cocoa itself...but then there are the marshmallows, those little chunks of heaven that are borderline “what am I doing with my life” and “It doesn’t get any better than this”. I was expecting half the cookie to be that glob of marshmallow heaven that gets devoured all at once...but alas it wasn't even in the same ballpark. I am left just wanting more marshmallow...maybe some chunks of those dried white sugary chunks that come in the hot cocoa packet?
Creme Only: A lot of the cremes lately have been a complete letdown, but this actually makes my tastebuds pretty darn happy. The white creme is definitely different than standard Oreo creme, has some marshmallow like flavor, and there is a very slight hint of cocoa. I don't know that I would go full on sweatpants and chick flick mode while I spooned this into my mouth...but close. Hey, I never claimed to be on the mend. If you all have an intervention, remember it would be way nicer to ease me out of this addiction...bring milk, too.
Overall: These are quite delightful. I'm not all heart eyes and ready to send Nabisco fan mail, but I'm pleasantly surprised. Now if only I had some hot cocoa to dip these in...
