What's up everybody!
I was going to do a video of reviewing these, but I got lazy. Anyways, the good folks over at @oreo came up with the hot & spicy cinnamon Oreo.
I like cinnamon candies, like red hots, and of course I like Oreo. Chocolate and spice can go together well, so why not give this a try?
When I opened the package I was greeted with a highly disappointing view. A number of the cookies were busted and chocolate cookie dust was all over the place. The red could've been a little brighter, to provide more contrast, but that's me being nitpicky.
These cookies did well with the twist test, but that comes as no surprise. They're a single dallop of frosting.
These tasted exactly as I expected. The frosting was only mildly flavored like cinnamon candies. When eaten as a whole cookie the chocolate of the wafers was a stronger flavor. Maybe something like 70/30 chocolate to cinnamon flavor. A bit less bold than I'd like.
When dunked in milk it completely obliterated the cinnamon flavor. Still tasted like an Oreo, but it made the cinnamon portion pointless.
Overall I'm going to have to give these a 6.0.
These get points for sticking with the always good chocolate wafers, trying something different, a good cinnamon flavor, and overall taste.
However, the drawbacks of the weak cinnamon flavor, especially when dunked, and how busted up they were don't make this the best seasonal flavor Oreo out there.
