Waffles & Syrup Oreo

Cookies for breakfast, as a child that was all I wanted in life and definitely snuck few times. When cookies wasn't on the breakfast menu, waffles or pancakes smothered in syrup were a close second. Apparently, our bff's at Nabisco also share this same breakfast dilemma as made apparent with their Oreo flavor, Waffles & Syrup.

Taste Test:

Initial Smell: From the second you open the packaging, you are greeted with that heavenly breakfast aroma. There are two distinct smells, waffles and syrup, in these cookies. The only thing missing from this is the fried chicken. I'm not above having these cookies with some chicken tenders.

Whole Cookie: Even with how great these cookies smell, I found myself very apprehensive about trying these cookies. Why, I'm not sure, but I really was. Waffles and Syrup can go either way and it all comes down to how much syrup you put on. Too much syrup and it's like you're in a chugging contest. Too little, and you may as well eat a breakfast biscuit. The balance in this whole cookie is nearly perfect, so I can't help but wonder how many batches they had to test. How do I get that job?

Half Cookie: For the folks that like to syrupboard their waffles, this is the combination for you. That removed wafer allows the syrup to run the show a lot more. The extra creaminess also makes it feel more like a waffle drowning in syrup.

Creme Only: With the half cookie test, I expected this to be like chugging syrup, but it was surprisingly subtle. When peeling off the creme, the tan stayed behind. Naturally I had to try the tan creme as I wondered if this was the little flavor bomb.  I could've just had way too much residue cookie/creme in my mouth, but the tan wasn't the flavor bomb I was expecting. I'm sure they just flavored all of the creme the same as that would be way easier flavor control, but it was still a neat idea. The flavor of this is good, but I could see this getting old really quickly.

Overall: These cookies are really good and I am sad they did a super limited release. The flavor is spot on for waffles and syrup, so much so that you could nearly justify them for breakfast.
