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
