Review: New Oreo Creme Filled Chewy Chips Ahoy! & The Nosh Show Ep. 30 & Happy Memorial Day!
Junk Food Nation, Happy Memorial Day! How will YOU be spending this holiday? Will you be eating tons of hot dogs, burgers, and drinking lots of beer? Will you be attending a parade, visiting a memorial, spending time with loved ones? Will you be watching the movie “Independence Day,” confused that Memorial Day and Independence Day are NOT the same day?
Memorial Day means different things to different people, and everyone spends it differently. Plus, every town in America has different Memorial Day events that will occur today. Please let me know how you intend to spend it in the comments below, including any shout outs you want to give. I’m interested in knowing how Memorial Day gets spent in your neck of the woods.
As for me, I will be giving thanks to all who fought to give us the freedoms we have today here in the United States. It is because of those who sacrificed that we are able to walk freely in the streets, have free elections, and do silly things like write a blog about junk food. Or even sillier things like do a podcast about junk food and fast food.
Hey by the way, THE NOSH SHOW EPISODE 30, is out today!
This week, “we discuss McDonald’s testing new fry seasonings, a revived Pop-Tarts flavor, playing Doritos Roulette, and our Nots of the Week.” The picture above will make sense if you listen to the podcast, I promise. Listen embedded here:
Today’s junk food: New Oreo Creme Filled Chewy Chips Ahoy!
New Oreo Creme Filled Chewy Chips Ahoy! is one of the products we discussed on this most recent episode of the Nosh Show. Chocolate chip cookies with Oreo Creme inside?? This…looks…interesting. It does make one wonder, however, why this didn’t happen sooner. I mean. Oreos are good. Chewy Chips Ahoy are good. They are made by the same company. Why not cross pollinate sooner?
New Oreo Creme Filled Chewy Chips Ahoy! is basically just a typical chocolate chip cookie with a layer of creme inside. This does seem like a bit of a lost opportunity though, doesn’t it? Besides the chocolate chips, Nabsico could’ve had a few chunks of actual OREO embedded into the cookie itself. THAT would be next level. You missed out, Nabisco.
ARE these New Oreo Creme Filled Chewy Chips Ahoy! REALLY “CRAMMED” with filling? We shall see.
Look at the picture with the calorie count…see the subliminal CROWD PLEASER message? I think it’s funny because when’s the last time you brought out a package of cookies and the party you were at started hootin’ and hollerin’? I guess maybe these would do it – and there’s a first time for everything.
New Oreo Creme Filled Chewy Chips Ahoy! look JUST LIKE their regular Chewy Chips Ahoy line. The secrets lie within, right? So let’s break these apart and look…
New Oreo Creme Filled Chewy Chips Ahoy! looked like regular Chips Ahoy cookies, and they SMELLED like regular Chips Ahoy cookies. I bit into one and……well, these TASTED pretty much like Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies too!
What I mean is this: As you can see from the picture, the ribbon of Oreo creme inside the cookie was present and visible. But all this creme did was sweeten up the overall cookie. I mean, if I’m being extremely observant, yes, it did taste like I dipped a Chewy Chips Ahoy cookie into the familiar sugary Oreo creme. But so what? It’s not like Oreo creme has THAT distinct of a flavor that the resultant combo blew my mind. Oreo creme is just a creamy sugar…and once that is chewed into the Chips Ahoy cookie itself, the whole thing just tastes very sweet.
Now, to be clear, this isn’t a BAD thing at all! These tasted pretty good – the truth of the matter is, however, that there’s nothing really special about these to me. Like I said, there was a missed opportunity here – should’ve had some Oreo pieces embedded.
Not worth a re-buy for me, but all in all, a decent, predictable cookie. I’d eat it again, even if I wouldn’t buy it again.
