Review: New Coconut Oreo Thins
Today’s junk food: New Coconut Oreo Thins!!
The last time Oreo had coconut, it was these Toasted Coconut Golden Oreos – not quite the same. Then there were these Coconut Delight Oreo Fudge Cremes, five years ago…Those were just ok. Still, I’m a coconut fan, so I’m ready for the plunge.
DO THESE TASTE GOOD? YES.
WHY OR WHY NOT? When I opened the package up and sniffed, I got a definite Coconut smell – interestingly, more coconut than Oreo aroma. I tasted the creme by itself – perfection! If you’re a coconut fan, this basically tastes like Oreo creme that was made with coconut oil. The flavor was present and matched perfectly with the sweetness of the creme.
Eaten altogether, these were a great match – the bitterness of the cookie, the sweetness of the coconut creme. Again, starting from the premise of liking coconut, these were an amazing cookie through and through – light, thin, flavorful. Good job, Oreo. These should’ve existed much sooner.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? Might be my new favorite coconut cookie over a Samoa. Just really perfect execution.
