TribLive Taste Test: We try all the weird Oreos we can find

Oreo cookies with lemon filling? With cinnamon bun filling? Red Velvet Oreos?!?!?

We went to our local grocery stores and found as many weird varieties of Oreo cookies we could. We didn't get to all of them, and there are some seasonal flavors like Caramel Apple Oreos that are not always available.

But we picked out six left-of-center flavors to undertake a TribLive Taste Test.

What we quickly discovered is that subtlety does not go over well. If you want an Oreo to taste different, you really have to boost the unique flavor, or else it just ends up tasting like a plain old Oreo.

We also found that there is a shockingly large number of Oreo cookie products, including a few we wish we'd have found at our local store:

• Rainbow Sherbet Oreos

• Gingerbread Oreos (probably a Christmas seasonal variety)

• Strawberries & Creme Oreos

• Peppermint Oreos

• Fireworks Oreos (which we believe have icing filled with Pop Rocks or some other sodium bicarbonate equivalent

• And of course, the cookie that inspired this video initially, the Cherry Cola Oreo

What should we try next? Email jonnamiller@tribweb.com and let us know, or leave a comment below!

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
